The Fine Art of Getting Out of Debt

Posted January 6, 2015

Having helped people with problem debt since 1994 and having lived through financial problems myself in the late 1980s, I'm always amazed how badly people manage the art of getting out of debt.

When I listen to "the debt experts" it almost seems they have never lived through really bad debt problems since they miss the most critical aspect of the entire issue.

Getting out of debt is, almost inconsequentially, about the money; yet it's the bills people focus on. It's no wonder why debt ruins the lives of masses of people who struggle under its burden.

The actual debt is really nothing more than a misdirection. It is in fact the symptom, not the problem. Debt is like the charred wood in the aftermath of a fire. The problem is not the burned wood, it was what caused the fire that is the problem. The debt is really the litter that comes from problematic income and expenses.
