He explains everything from the types of bonds there are to why bonds are providing a negative return rate this year (and why that’s not unusual). He also touches on the beauty of minimalism and how too many things cause stress and weigh you down.

In this episode, Dan unpacks bonds and makes them much less confusing to understand. He discusses how they are meant to work and why he always recommends that people keep their bond maturity short. He provides some great examples so you can understand bonds and be more successful with your investments.
