The Agenda - 063

The Agenda is a curation of articles, videos, reports, businesses to support, and even social posts – just about any medium can make the agenda – that should be top of mind as you plan your next move. In each Agenda, you’ll find something of value.

With each Agenda we search for content we know is important to you. In this edition we’ve included headlines on the ongoing student loan debt situation, managing your finances, the high cost of childcare, and more.

Remember, to start a business, level up, build generational wealth, or to just be ten toes down, you’ll need to know what’s happening around you. Enjoy and stay up!
