The college fund

 When you’re a kid, your parents make all the financial decisions for you. But what happens when you grow up ... and don’t agree with their choices?

Growing up, there are moments that define how we see ourselves, and our family.

For Hayli McKnight, that moment came right after she was accepted to college. It changed the way she saw money, security and her father. Years later, she’s still reeling from what happened.

This week, we talk with McKnight and her dad, Rick Carroll, about money and everything it stands for in their relationship. 

The future of this podcast starts with you.
