How to Make a Five-Year Plan That Gets Results

“What would you do if you had a million dollars?” Whether at a job interview, a date, or in those late-night talks among friends, it’s a question we’ve all heard a million times before. We laugh lightly about the luxury cars we’ll drive as we pull into the driveway of our mansion by the sea in some exotic country.
