Podcast #48: Six Money Moves You Should Make After College

This episode is a must-listen for anyone who recently graduated, or even folks who have previously been bad with money and now want to improve.

Especially with a brand new Gucci bag staring you down and eyeing that shiny paycheck you just cashed.
Tune in to this week’s episode for a step-by-step guide that breaks down and demystifies money as a post-grad. Saving, investing, and paying off debt shouldn’t be rocket science.
