Introduction

There are a lot of good sources to help you to get out of debt everywhere on the internet and in books and popular magazines. Sometimes all that information can be overwhelming, and many people don’t know where to start, but that is no reason not to start. The fact of the matter is it took a while to get into debt and it will take a lot of hard work and dedication to get out of debt. I’ve compiled some tips and the simplest methods I am aware of to reach your goals.

Because many people don’t begin this process until they are already in over their head, I am going to ask you begin the process in basic steps.

This book was also written to dispel some very popular beliefs and myths about debt. There is no good debt. Some people will try to differentiate debt into categories. Consumer debt is bad debt and good debt is investment debt that is used to create income, such as rental property, but that logical approach doesn’t factor in the emotional well being or the stress free lifestyle of living debt free. I can’t explain why paid off cars drive better. They just do.
