Ep. 150 | Is Your Child A Grinder Or A Hustler?

Is your child a grinder or a hustler? If he/she is the latter, does it make sense to spend $65K/year on college?

Show Notes:

In today's episode, I discuss how the structure of college affordability has dramatically changed over the last 20 years. Colleges used to be categorized as: (1) expensive, (2) moderate, or (3) affordable. The new categories are: (1) obscenely expensive, (2) absurdly expensive, or (3) affordable. With this backdrop in mind, how do you find the best fit for your child? Well, it might depend on whether they are a grinder or a hustler. Find out what those two terms mean, and how they might affect college options.
