IBJ Podcast: Pete the Planner urges immediate support for restaurants, plus answers to burning money questions

Since the pandemic began, Peter “Pete the Planner” Dunn has been talking on the IBJ Podcast and writing in the pages of IBJ about the need to get your discretionary spending under control to deal with the current economic downturn.

But now, Pete has a new message to those who are stable: Spend some money at your favorite restaurant.

We all know that restaurants have been devastated by the pandemic. Some have closed, and Pete predicts more are about to. So he suggests determining how much you can afford to help and then spending  that cash at two or three restaurants that are meaningful to you.

You can read more details about Pete’s plan to save restaurants at IBJ.com.

Plus, in the second half of the podcast, host Mason King shoots a rapid series of questions at Pete about paying off your house early, dumping bad investments, switching careers and more.
