Over the course of this week, I’ll write one more article about improving the health of our finances. Each article should take just a few minutes to read, and the steps outlined should take about an hour to do. Depending on the health of your finances, you might be able to breeze through the steps in just minutes – or it might take you much longer, if things are in need of repair. My goal, however, is to keep the steps to a minimum, and to make them as easy-to-follow as is possible.
Consider Hour 6. If you will take the time to do all of the steps outlined above, you will know where your important education- work- and community-related documents are, you will have updated your resume, and you will have begun to connect with like-intentioned people. And, you will have accomplished all of these things, in about an hour!
