5 Questions: Keeping Track of Bills, Coasting, and Moving to a New City (Ep. 275)

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?
