Mark, a 55-year-old listener, has no savings.
He’s been listening to personal finance podcasts. He recently read Tony Robbins’ Money: Master the Game. He called this podcast to tell us that he’s feeling overwhelmed by the scope of what’s ahead of him. He doesn’t know how to apply this information — and he’s afraid of needing to work in fast food when he’s 80 years old. What can he do?
We tackle his question first on today’s Ask Paula episode.
Next, we take a call from Adalia.
Adalia, another podcast listener, wants to earn extra money on the side. She’s intrigued by the idea of becoming a virtual assistant — a side hustle that allows her to work from home, setting her own hours. How should she start? Where can she find clients?
