Thinking Like a Rich Person, Telecommuting On H&FF Radio
WASHINGTON (3/29/13)--This week H&FF Radio teaches you to think like a rich person, explores whether working from home is a good idea and cautions against sharing too many spring break pictures on Twitter and Facebook.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Use Your Tax Refund like a Rich Person." Professional speaker and consultant Steve Siebold, author of the book "How Rich People Think" and co-founder of the consulting firm Gove-Siebold Group, Boynton Beach, Fla., says putting your tax refund in savings isn't necessarily the best use of the money and suggests some alternatives.
  • "Is Working From Home the Future?" Corporate speaker and author Linda Galindo, Park City, Utah, explains why some bosses say telecommuting works great but still want to see their employees in the office.
  • "Online, Your Past Can Haunt You." Cybersecurity expert Jessie Varsalone, a professor at Baltimore County College, warns that what young people share through social media could prevent them from landing competitive jobs. Varsalone says companies regularly screen applicants' social media activity before making job offers.
