Here's how we would start getting control of your debt
Debt repayment usually starts with a rock bottom moment. A moment when you decide… this is not how I want my life to be.
If you’ve had a moment like that… I want to help you get out of debt.
I understand that paying off your debt isn’t just about the numbers, it’s about addressing the problem that got you there in the first place. It’s also about making a plan so that you know exactly how you’re going to accomplish what might seem impossible right now.
I know how much your debt is holding you back (trust me… I’ve been there). It’s holding you back from the time you need to create, it’s holding you back from the money you need for opportunities. It’s just holding you back.
I want to help you break free of your debt… once and for all.
Here are a few of the first steps that we might take…..
FIRST: WE’D GO TO THE SOURCE
Before you pay off the debt, you have to stop more debt from accumlating.
It’s not always as simple as ‘cutting up the credit cards’.
In our first session, we’ll talk about where your debt came from, and what steps we can take to keep that from happening again.
- If it was an emergency: can we start saving an emergency fund to help when the unexpected happen.
- If it was student debt: can we look at student loan rules and regulations and see if there’s ways to save you money.
- If it’s from daily spending: can we identify the habits and situations that have led to that debt, and can we come up with ways to avoid it in the future.
SECOND: WE’D GET ORGANIZED
I’d ask you to send me all your debt information, and I would put it together for you so you could see things like:
- the total amount
- the amount you pay every month
- how long it would take you to pay it all off at the minimum payment
Seeing the whole picture can help you get focused, and having someone else help you can make sure it actually gets done.
THIRD: WE’D TRY TO SAVE YOU SOME MONEY
There are a lot of debt tools out there, and sometimes you can move debt to a place where the interest rates are a little lower.
We’ll take a look at your and see if there are places where we can get free savings.
FOURTH: WE’D FIND EXTRA CASH
At the end of the day paying off debt takes money, and not many of us have ‘extra money lying around’.
I’ll help you go through your income, and your expenses to find extra money you can throw at your debt. We’ll also look at your whole year, and identify times of the year you might be able to afford to put more money on your debt balance.
Lastly we’ll automate everything so you don’t have to think about it… it’ll just happen
Those are just an idea of what the first 4 steps COULD look like. The truth is… everyone is different, and the way I work with everyone is different.
