Realistic Debt Management
At some point in our lives, most of us have borrowed beyond our means. If you're in over your head, know that there is a way out, but make no mistake, you must FIRST learn to live on less than what you earn. Getting out of debt takes discipline, and that is why you’ll need a plan to give you step-by-step instructions on how to get your debt under control.
Our job is to find money you are already giving away UNKNOWINGLY OR UNNECESSARILY and apply this new found money to your debts, assets and lifestyle. It’s akin to plugging a hole in your boat or the gas tank under your car. How soon would you want to know those holes were there and how fast would you want them plugged up? ...drip-drip-drip
Impulse shopping and trying to keep up with the Jone’s, (which by the way, may just take you down with the ship), is just the beginning of the financial landslide.

We find ways to make each dollar count, and show how a penny saved today can turn into dollars earned in the future. It’s called “Triple Compounding” or “The 3 Miracles of Compound Interest”. Interest on principle, Interest on Interest, and Interest on the Tax Dollars you would have paid, had you’d placed your money in a TAXABLE ENVIRONMENT. (Eck)
