Oh, hey there. We’re back with another 5 questions episode.
Every once in a while, we take five questions from social media, the College Info Geek community on Reddit, and email. Then, we talk a bit about each question and hopefully come up with some answers.
Here are today’s questions:
- How do you keep track of bills?
- Is it okay to coast?
- How do people succeed at more than one type of thing at once? Aren’t they going against their niche?
- How do I start investing?
- Should I move to a new city? What was your experience moving to Colorado?
