The first thing Hilary Jastram had to do when her finances were drilled down to less-than-zero since she had no prospects–was figure out how to get money in the door. Once she was over that little hump and knew she could pay her share of the bills, she could better strategize–although there is something to be said about panicked strategizing!

3. Become the expert in groups.
