About This Class

Freedom from Credit Card Debt : A Realistic Guide On How To Eliminate  Credit Card Debt,  for Good.

Starting in the 1980s credit cards became the preferred payment method of most American shopper ís credit card to give shoppers a sense of power, entitlement, and instant gratification as well as the feeling that they won't need to worry about their bills. 

At least not until the end of the month. This living like there ís no tomorrow. This Way of thinking made sense when credit cards first came on the market as a mainstream payment method because the world was engaged in the Cold War and everyone felt as though the world was going to end tomorrow so they should live in the moment and have everything they desired and not worry about spending and debt because there would be no one there to collect, unfortunately, that way of thinking did not work because the Cold War never went hot and there was a tomorrow and credit card companies wanted their money and many people got further and further into debt trying to pay off their credit card bill. 

So much so that they started using one credit card to pay off another which only served to increase their debt and thanks to the magic of technology and shopping over the Internet and the ease with which someone can apply for and acquire a credit card credit card to have become more ubiquitous than ever. Most people these days. Under the age of 35. 

Dont even carry cash on a regular basis and everything they need on a monthly or daily basis is paid for with the use of a credit card (most likely several credit cards) which only serves to feed the cycle of debt.
If however you are sincere about getting out from under credit card debt and saving money for necessary expenditures like college for yourself or your kids, and retirement, then this is the cross for you. This course will teach you not only how to get out from under the burdens of credit card debts once and for all, but also how to set up and stick to a monthly budget for all of your necessary (and sometimes unnecessary expenditures) so that you can live a debt-free and happy life.

3)   You will learn the differences between consolidation and bankruptcy and the benefits of both.
4)   You will learn about government grants for debt forgiveness and how they can be used to help pay off debt.
5)   You will learn how to set up a monthly budget and use cash instead of credit cards
6)   You will learn the benefits of using a debit card rather than a standard credit card
7)   You will learn how to delay instant gratification and save for major expenditures such as big-screen TVs rather than putting them on a credit card and indulging instant gratification.
8)   You will learn how to find a bank with the best interest rates and benefits for the one credit card you keep for emergencies.

This course covers the basics of staying out of debt, as well as the history of credit cards, some actions that you can take to minimize your debt, and recommendations for other financial gurus you can look up. I didn't come out of this course with a concrete plan of how to handle my debt, but I did glean some helpful tidbits of information and had a bit of a needed reality check about how foolish I've been with my money. This course isn't a magic class that fixes all of your financial problems, but it is helpful and reassuring that you CAN make it work and pay off your debt eventually. Thanks Brian - I needed to hear this!
