Welcome back to the More Money for Beer and Textbooks podcast!
Before we start today I thought I’d quickly explain how the easiest way to get our podcast every couple of weeks. While you’re more than welcome to keep coming here to the site and hitting “play”, I personally prefer to get my podcasts delivered straight to my iPhone. In order to “subscribe” to a podcast simply click here to go to our page and follow the on-page directions. After that, it will automatically deliver to your device and be ready to listen to on your walk to school or as you catch up on home chores. If you have two minutes while you’re on the page, you can really help us out by leaving us a rating and a comment as well. The higher our podcast gets rated the better the guests we can get – like our next guest for example (tune in then to find out ;) )This week it’s another does of your two favorite personal finance authors as we talk about how changing your mind once you start post-secondary education is ok. I’m sure you’ve all heard the stat somewhere about how today’s grads are going to have 777 or so jobs in their lifetimes, so we think the takeaway is not to be afraid to adapt and change as you go. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should just wonder on to campus with no idea about where you want to go or what you want to pursue, but it should help ease some of the stress associated with those feelings of confusion and disarray when you inevitably question what direction you’d like to go in.
You’ll here us talk about our own experiences and how we’ve seen numerous people adapt their overall plans as they went through school. Whether it’s looking at a college education after a couple years of university courses, or switching things up between majors, a small time and money sacrifice in the short term might make a lot of long-term sense. Oftentimes a lot of what you’ve done in the past can be parlayed into credit or a jump start in an alternate plan.
As always, feel free to let us know how it’s hangin and what you want to hear about going forward.
More Beers More Cheers That’s It That’s All!
