We’ll dig into these three buckets, plus look at what the experts say about unanticipated needs that could disrupt our financial readiness. We’ll also look at how today’s talent gap bodes well for aspiring Retirepreneurs looking to bolster up financial readiness.
Hot Topic #2: Diffusing Naysayers
We’ve all got a few naysayers in our lives – some might be loved ones with the best of intentions. Believe it or not, there’s an upside to naysayers – there are smart people who can provide helpful feedback to speed up and improve your journey to something better… We’ll also explore a clip from an Oprah Life Class where Bishop T.D. Jakes shared a priceless gem on dealing with naysayers and why feedback from giraffes is better than feedback from turtles.
