Jean Chatzky  |  April 26, 2017

Bill Burnett says that if you want to live the life you want — and improve your relationships at home and at work — you have to face your problems head-on, including the money ones.

At Stanford University, students wait in line for rock star professor Bill Burnett’s course-turned-best-seller, “Designing Your Life.” You don’t have to.
