So they decided to make a drastic move in order to tackle their debt head-on. Mandi sat down with Aja this week to chat about how they finally became debt-free and what advice she has for others out there feeling overwhelmed by their own debt. "You don't need a lot of money to do this," she says. "Being disciplined helped."

  Welcome back Brown Ambition fam. This week, we take a reader question from a young woman who took a job before she realized how little it paid. Now she's stuck -- does she stay and remain loyal to her new employer, or should she start looking for new work and risk looking unreliable to future employers? PLUS: Tiffany shares her favorite book of the moment ... and how to manage career burnout. As always, join us on Facebook or Twitter.

  HAPPY NEW YEAR! To kick off our first show of 2016, we talk about the results of a 75-year study on — what else? — the key to finding lasting happiness in life. Doing this ONE thing in your life can not only make you happier but healthier and, as a result, more likely to live longer. It's like tapping your own personal Fountain of Youth everyday...and here's a hint: it has nothing to do with going to the gym! Then, we take a question from a listener who's feeling torn — should she take a year off from work and travel, or is it too late for a little adventure? Have any career or money questions to help you ensure a prosperous new year? We'd love to hear from you! Email us at brownambitionpodcast@gmail.com or join the BA Fam on Facebook and Twitter.
