Financial Funk: Importance of Setting Intentions Day to Day (5 of 5)

If I think back on my life, the trouble started when I graduated college. That’s when I became lost.

There was a time I was in a big, ugly financial funk that lasted for four god-awful years.

It was a scary time and a very lonely time.
