However humbled you’ve been by a layoff, whatever savings you’ve lost in your portfolio and regardless of the size of your home’s equity value — you’re still the one with all the power. When headlines hammer home what you cannot control, remind yourself of the one thing you do control: You. Rise up, opt out, and press refresh. With our economic world in flux, now is a low-risk opportunity to invest in yourself, do some reinventing, and finally collect on the raw potential of you. This can be a modest tune-up, or a head-to-toe overhaul. Either way, there’s value in considering how changing YOU might change everything.
