This week, we find out about the dangers of financing a home renovation with a credit card’s tempting promotional offer. We get advice on when it’s the right time to quit a day job and make your passion your full-time career. And when it’s worth it to use a debt consolidation company to resolve outstanding credit card debt.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
