May 28, 2020

Do employers seek out either an introvert or an extrovert in their hiring process?

However, I did find some key information that tends to show introverts often have a more challenging time in the workplace.

 

This podcast episode looks at introverts and extroverts in the workplace.

Should having debt be normal?

The kind of debt defines it as being positive or negative. For investing it can be positive to have debt. If you can take a loan and have an investment appreciate faster than the money borrowed, this can be good debt.

Negative debt, unfortunately, is the kind of debt most people have. This comes in the form of something like an auto loan. Vehicles are a depreciating debt and can be negative. Credit cards with high-interest rates can also be a negative debt.

 

This podcast episode talks about debt and if it is just a normal part of life for people.
