This website is a good idea. If i can find someone to talk to about my financial sorrows, i believe i can position myself to getting out of it.

After college, i wanted a new car, a new house, and freedom. I got a well paying job but i also had a student loan of over $50,000, i got a new 2005 BMW for about 38,000 which i thought was a good deal. I then got 3 bedroom house (my dream home) and got a 210,000 mortgage.

In 2008, I lost my job and I had no alternative but to have the bank repossess my car & my house… Now I wish they could take my school loan as well.
I am getting myself together, and hoping that things will turn around for me.

In addition to debt issues, I struggle with addiction issues as well. For the past 2 years I have been addressing both issues head on. Looking through google I didn’t really see any financial advice that was tailored towards those of us with addictive personalities, so I decided to start my blog, alcoholicmillionaire.com

I’ve just read your article on Hoarding, & have already benefited, thank you.

I’m happy to know when I’m wrong, since then I am then able to alter what I’m doing. Too much information is easier to deal with than too little, since then one can discard any excess.

When one realises that money as we know it is a myth, & that (despite this) the real US Gross National Debt exceeds $400 TRILLION, the idea of the followers of the father-of-lies gaining extra manipulation ability through the spectre of debt is far from an appealing one.

If the USA devoted the entire Gross Domestic Product to settling this debt, they would not even pay the interest. The bottom line is that this debt will never be repaid.

In case that isn’t bad enough, raising money to pay the debt would actually make the debt worse, since the Federal Reserve (who have nothing to do with the US Federal Government & carry no reserves at all — Fort Knox is empty, the gold has long been in Swiss bank vaults) actually loan the money to the US Federal Government, at interest.

I was born in Kingdom 1 (Canada, USA, Greenland. Maxico), live in Kingdom 4 (Australia, the Pacific Islands, New Zealand, South Africa, Numibia, Israel — basically, the British Empire without Britain) as defined by The Club Of Rome (a UN faction) a few decades ago, & in the last year four secular friends have approached me, saying that they know the wheels have come off this little red trolley, & they are wanting to know whether I knew why, & what they could do about it?

If observations like these don’t slam the Christian perspective into focus, it’s likely that a slap across the face with a wet fish would also have nil effect? Said father-of-lies appears to realise that his time is growing sparse, so is now more willing to take careless short-cuts.

My family is not in a great deal of debt at all, but any debt is debt nonetheless. Our thing is that my wife and I have different attitudes toward debt. She is an emotional soul, I’m the cool one that comes off as uncaring sometimes. I see the future and possibility, she sees the here and now. I love and respect her, but I’m looking at where we’ll be when our current plans eliminate our debts totally and shift into growth and greater prosperity. I will come back here to let you know how we’re improving as we do. Thanks, and God bless.

Joseph,
Love the name of your site. Robin and I were $150,000 in debt just 6 short years ago. Our website the Debt Free Squad talks about our story of becoming debt free with the exception of our mortgage. (Just put $20,000 on the principal yesterday – we are chipping away). Would you consider giving your readers a chance to look at one of our videos from our series, Becoming Debt Free, God’s Way? Check out the Lesson’s and click on a blue banner to watch a video. Any input would also be appreciated.

Thanks for considering,
Jeff & Robin (Our 39th anniversary today)

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or
outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
I’d definitely appreciate it.

Happy New Year!

I’m putting together a piece of content as an experts round-up on my blog http://www.FinanceBlogZone.com and I think many would love to know your answer to the following question.

My idea is that I compile a list with the top finance blogs as suggested by the top finance bloggers like you!

You’d be a great addition to this round-up post so if you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to respond directly to me answering the following question:

Question: Which are your favorite finance blogs? (up to 3)

My readers would love to know the opinion of someone like you and of course I will link to your site and social media profiles (feel free to send me the social profiles you would like me to add).

If you have any questions, give me a shout! 🙂

Thanks in advance,
Kostas Chiotis

Hi,

I just wanted to circle back on my email below. I’m assuming that since I haven’t heard back, you are either busy and haven’t had a chance to respond, or my last email got buried in your inbox 🙂

You can check below my initial email and let me know if you would like to participate in the round-up

Additionally here is a similar round up with travel bloggers to get an idea on how it will look like: http://www.pretravels.com/top-travel-blogs/

Thanks in advance
Kostas

Hi, how are you?

The last round-up we did http://www.financeblogzone.com/top-finance-blogs/ was a great success so I would love it if you participate on a new one that I plan to publish in 2 weeks.

Let me know by replying to this email if you are interested.
Thanks in advance,
