EP 127 | Ask Hilary: Debt, Buy vs. Rent, Business Income, Credit Repair, and more…

EP 127 | Profit Boss® Radio

Welcome to episode 127 of Profit Boss® Radio! Today’s episode features your questions. Thank you for sharing your personal finance questions with me so I can answer them offline with you or through the show. Please keep them coming!

What is interesting about this week’s #AskHilary episode is that no two questions are exactly alike, and they cover a wide range of financial issues. We’ll be talking about how to pay down massive amounts of credit card debt and when to file for bankruptcy, how to think about school debt, what you need to know about credit repair, how to create consistent personal income as a business owner, and whether or not you should consider subsidized home-buyer programs.

Whether one, many or no topic in today’s episode pertains to your specific situation, stick around because these are important money matters that touch on foundational financial planning principles. Just about everyone can glean some new financial insights from this latest installment of Profit Boss® Radio.
