Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy Podcast talks about preparing for the storm – literally, preparing for Hurricane Dorian as well as preparing for an economic storm – the issues that can arise in your personal life and your business. Jason explains the pattern of recessions, as well as the differences between bad debt and good debt.

  • Hurricane Dorian reminded Jason of the importance of being prepared for unexpected storms in the marketplace.

  • A recession is definitely on the way.

  • What exactly is bad debt?

  • An auto loan on a brand new car that depreciates quickly is bad debt.

  • Student loans on a degree with no applied value in the business world are bad debt.

  • What is an example of good debt?

  • If you take out a loan to buy a business and the payments are funded by the income, this is an example of good debt.
