One of the challenges of adulting includes tackling hard-but-necessary adult tasks, like making a will, buying insurance, and saving for retirement. We know these big jobs are important, but they can be so intimidating it’s tempting to keep putting them off...forever. This episode is for anyone who gets anxious about these tasks, or who doesn’t know how to begin.

In Episode 111 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share own experiences tackling adult life planning basics. We go on to offer baby steps for getting started on the big tasks, including making a will, buying life insurance, saving for college, and saving for retirement.
