This week's guest is Marc Miller. Marc runs the website CareerPivot.com and blog. His career included 22 years at IBM, thriving tech startups, and a stint as a high school math teacher. After thirty years of wandering the proverbial career desert, Marc learned his most crucial lesson: Most people don’t really know what makes them happy at their core, what fulfills them. Marc uses his extensive training experience to help others—especially Baby Boomers—find careers that they could grow into for the decades that lie ahead. We were happy to have him on the show to discuss a wide variety of topics including:

  • How individuals can best navigate multi-generational workplaces by focusing on their likenesses and using our differences as strengths to improve our work interactions
  • Focus on building resumes versus just college degrees
  • The outside forces that shaped each generation's unique perspective on work and life
  • Career advice for your 20s, 30s, and 40s and how CareerPivot strategies can help prepare your for career longevity in or as you near retirement

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
