I was first introduced to the idea of having a mentor in graduate school.  My program told me it was “very important” but the specifics on how to find one, what made for a good one, what you should discuss with them, etc., were vague.  I did my best, though, searching out opportunities to connect [...] The post Finding a Mentor and Being a Mentee appeared first on Good Life.

When I decided to pay off almost $60,000 in debt in 18 months, I knew that being intentional with my spending would be critical for my success: if I didn’t get a handle on purchasing “the little things,” they would almost certainly derail my efforts, especially given the role small purchases had played in accumulating [...] The post The Latte Factor and Intentional Spending appeared first on Good Life.
