Hip Tranquil Chick Chat: “after listening to your podcast, i want to make a list (because i love lists...) of all the places i would like to travel in my life. i'll probably start small (like in the US - i'm thinking New Mexico, San Francisco, Austin, Joshua Tree National Park, Boston, and Seattle...) and work my way out into the world. your podcast empowered and motivated me to want to travel either by myself or my friends or with my boyfriend. i know i can make it happen and that there's no better time to start then now while i'm young :-)

i also wanted to thank you for the sequence you posted on your blog to help with "emotional spring cleaning." right now i've really been struggling with staying balanced considering all the changes going on in my life - graduating college, finding a job, moving into an apartment, making sure i have enough money to finance everything etc. it's definitely stressful. i don't know if you have any extra tips or advice regarding how a recent college grad can adjust financially in the "real world." i loved the finance podcast a couple weeks ago and found it helpful.”

Update... here are the two books for financial tips in the real world:
