I am excited to be a part of the Talking Cents team and provide valuable financial tips and advice based on my own experiences. When I graduated from college 12 years ago, I turned to credit cards. By age 25, I had more than $17,000 worth of credit card debt, and no relief in sight. I enrolled in a debt management program before the situation got out of control (though trust me $17,000 felt out of control), and within five years, I was debt free. Now, my wife and I live life frugally and our family sticks to a strict budget. I’d like to take the lessons I’ve learned along the way and help people avoid the same mistakes that I did, and counsel those who are in the same situation that I was.
Do you have a question about finances or how they affect your life? I’d like to hear from you! Submit a question in the form below and let me know what’s troubling you about your credit or debt. Be sure to give me as much background as possible to help me understand your entire situation. I’m here to help, and I’ll publish the best questions with advice on how to best navigate your scenario.
