Not all debts are created equal. There's good debt that can grow and scale your business and there's bad debt that can drive it to bankruptcy. David Kennedy of Parkside Financial joins us in this episode to tell us the risks and rewards of debts. If deployed correctly, debt can be a great investment for businesses. They just need to identify what assets they should have and the specific situation they need to be in before going to the bank and borrowing money.
