Friday Flight episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of Covid-19 on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to come out on the other side even stronger. In this episode we cover a lot of interesting topics like new cell phones and affordable cell phone service, investing in gold and precious metals, and increased private equity options in your 401k. After all of that we cover how small businesses are innovating but still struggling, negotiating a severance pay package, and starting the money conversation with your friends.
