What does it take to become self-made? For Nely Galán, the first Latina President of Entertainment for a U.S. television network (Telemundo), it required strategy, sacrifice and a whole lot of self-control. She joins us this week for an inspiring conversation on immigration, building wealth (if you’re interested in investing in real estate, this show’s for you) and why overachievers (hint, hint) need to slow down in order to accomplish more on our ever-growing to-do lists. In Mailbag, Kelly and I answer your questions whether it matters if your landlord reports your rent payments to the credit bureaus, and what to do if you have a house on the market that won’t sell, but is costing you more and more every month. And, in Thrive, we discuss how student debt in the U.S. has hit $1.5 trillion (yes, “trillion” with a “t”) for the first time ever — and how to pay yours down.
