Every time you borrow money, you’re robbing your future self–Nathan W. Morris
Debt can destroy lives. I saw my parents struggle with mountains of debt when a business failed. I have friends that let debt drive them into bankruptcy. And my wife and I once had our share of debt. We had it all. We had credit card debt. We both had school loans. We had car loans. And we had a huge home equity line of credit.
Today, the only debt we have is our mortgage. So we know firsthand just how liberating it is to be have no consumer debt. But we also know how difficult it is to get out of debt.
You’ll make mistakes along the way; we did. You’ll get frustrated; we did. You’ll get angry at each other; we did. But hopefully you’ll persevere; we did!
And for this reason I’m happy to share with you The Debt Movement. The Debt Movement is a group of personal finance bloggers, let by my good friend Jeff Rose of Good Financial Cents and Ready For Zero.
