A leap day is upon us in 2016, so in that vein, we want your stories about leaps. Maybe we’re talking about leaps of faith, or maybe something you couldn’t control, like getting fired. What happened after? 

Or you leapt from the mail room to the top of the company. Maybe you suddenly came into some money. How did you get from one place to the other, and what’d you learn?

Tell us about that journey! Call us at 1-800-648-5114, and yes, your voice might be featured on the air.

 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
