The Buyout Offer

Dave's suggesting to a listener? A buyout offer for her husband should be a clue as to his future with the company.

QUESTION: Listener’s husband was offered $100,000 to leave Nissan. They owe $78,000 on their house and have a full emergency fund. What should they do?

ANSWER: If you work for a company that wants you to leave so badly that they’ll pay you, that’s not a good sign. Take the $100,000 and go make yourself a life after paying off the house. Get out of there. The illusion of security traps more people than anyone else.
