Episode 13: Good Debt v. Bad Debt

Episode 13: Good Debt v. Bad Debt

September 3, 2020

Not everything in life is black or white. It would be easy to make choices if everything came down to the good choice and the bad choice, but rarely are any of life’s toughest questions that simple. Many people have been conditioned to believe that “debt” is a bad word and that you should strive for a life that is debt-free. Is all debt bad? Is there such a thing as “good debt?” In this episode, we’re breaking down “debt.” We are going to get real about the fact that for some people, debt is a necessity. But is it necessarily EVIL? Well, as Cort likes to say, it depends. Katie and Cort will be talking about the most common forms of debt, and how certain debt can (obviously) lead to a lot of stress, but also how debt can actually help us accomplish our goals and play a crucial role in our lives. Join us as we dig into some really cool statistics and leave you with some tips on how to remain in control.
