Credit card debt solutions services have been made into a profitable and sometimes fraudulent business. As such many people have been duped to believe that solutions to credit card debt can only be done through one of these services. The reality is that some of them charge for something you can do yourself and sometimes they don’t even deliver.
What you want is to take control and responsibility for your debt. You need to realize that as long as you are in debt you will not be able to build wealth.
”But everybody has debt...everybody has a credit card…”
Yes, but long term debt, like a mortgage, is structured differently than credit card debt (see article on The Road to Wealth). For those reasons you can see why credit card debt has a higher potential for keeping you in debt and prevent you from building wealth - possibly for life!
Learning about solutions to credit card debt is the first step in crafting your plan to go from debt to wealth. Although the ultimate goal should be to eliminate all debt in many cases credit card debt is the most available, the hardest to stop from growing and the hardest to pay off.
These three conditions make credit card debt very “tricky” and that is why you should give it special consideration when creating your plan for wealth.
Credit card debt is like excess body weight, it's easy to accumulate and hard to get rid off . The good news is that with the following credit card debt solutions you can eliminate credit card debt. It is possible and very doable:
You need to understand that credit card debt is designed specifically to keep you in debt. Credit card companies do this by:
1) Making it very accessible and very easy to obtain a credit card – very little, if any qualifications are needed.
2) It allows you to have “stuff” now – no saving for it, no waiting for the next paycheck – then you trick yourself into thinking you will pay it later (been there, done that).
3) By offering you additional ways for you to increase your debt and not explaining to you how it works – convenience checks and balance transfers whose interest rates are higher than the rate for purchases.
4) By charging high interest rates and minimum payments that will not reduce the amount of principal you owe!!
Exploring the above credit card debt solutions will give you hope if this is something you really want to deal with.
Yes, everybody has debt but not everybody is doing something about it and focusing on building wealth…are you?
