In this week’s Money Minute, Marcus shares a helpful tool that he has used over the years to research career fields and options from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Thinking of making a job change? Not sure what other professions are related to your current skillset? In school and want to make sure the job you want will exist in 4 years and allow you to “make it rain” or whatever the cool-kid equivalent of rain making is called in 2021? There’s a website for that, the Occupational Outlook Handbook.

Tune into this week’s show to learn:

  • Quick facts about your next career, such as Median Pay, Typical Entry-Level Education, Job Outlook, and more.
  • The proactive professional steps Rich is taking now to ensure his dreams for the future don’t become the ghost of professional missteps past.
  • The differences between where Rich and Marcus thought they would be in college and how you might use their lessons learned to adjust your professional and collegiate pursuits.
  • Lastly, Rich shares how a combination of personal growth, focus, discipline and the Paychecks and Balances show itself have helped him reach another milestone: paying off all of his personal credit card debt by 2017
