Debt settlement companies advertise that they can eliminate your debt for a fraction of what you owe, so should you hire one?

Certainly there are great debt settlement companies out there, and we get great referrals from them. Most debt settlement companies, however, can be a scam.

In this week’s episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I answer the following questions:

  • What percentage should you expect to pay to settle your credit card debt?
  • Is it better to settle your debt or pay it in full?
  • Should you negotiate with your creditors yourself, or use a professional?
  • What are the best tactics to use for specific credit cards?
  • How does debt settlement affect your credit score?

A short episode this week, but I also posted a "Trailer" Episode for the podcast yesterday, so you get two shorter releases this week. At the same time, I only want to create great content for you regardless of length!

This week's episode is part of a project that I worked on for the One Funnel Away challenge - The Origin Story for Yesner Law. I've told parts of this story within the podcast and on other podcasts, but never as raw as you're going to hear it this week.

My hope is that you take away some do's and don'ts, and gain a little insight into how and why I started the law firm.

Speaking of the One Funnel Away Challenge, start to look for other products I created to help people Become Debt Free - those should be rolling out in the coming weeks.

For those that subscribe already, thank you!

The Crushing Debt Podcast was created to help you eliminate the financial bullies in your life.

A "financial bully" is a collection company or creditor who threatens a lawsuit, garnishment, or makes repeated phone calls to try to collect a debt. It is a company with a "customer service" representative who only reads from a prepared script rather than trying to understand your financial hardships. A "financial bully" is a company that doesn't care about your current financial situation and only wants the money you allegedly owe.

The Crushing Debt Podcast provides practical answers around such topics as real estate litigation, partition, quiet title, chapter 7 liquidation, chapter 13 reorganization, and Chapter 11 business bankruptcies, short sales, loan modifications, creditor harassment and other related topics. I interview industry professionals and experts, as well as provide practical information you can use without all the "legalese."

The goal of the show is simple - I hope that you have more money at the end of the month, rather than more month at the end of the money.

After reading Profit First, my mindset around money, cash flow and profit changed forever!

On this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, I interview Mike Michalowicz (mi-KAL-o-wits),  the author of Profit First, Clockwork, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan, and his newest release Fix This Next. By his 35th birthday, Mike had founded and sold two companies - one to private equity and another to a Fortune 500. Today he is running his third multi-million dollar venture, Profit First Professionals.

Mike is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal and the former business makeover specialist on MSNBC. Over the years, Mike has traveled the globe speaking with thousands of entrepreneurs, and is here today to share the best of what he has learned.

 Mike and I discuss:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the Profit First System,
  • How PPP and EIDL Loans impact the Profit First System,
  • The importance of having multiple bank accounts,
  • His best success story of someone who used Profit First to avoid bankruptcy, and
  • Fix This Next

Please visit our sponsor, Sam Cohen of Attorneys First Insurance for any questions regarding E&O Professional Liability Insurance for attorneys and title companies - Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.

Are you sending your kids back to school in person? 

Are you sending your kids to a pod or daycare for e-learning or distance learning?

Are you keeping your kids home for e-learning?

Regardless, it is not an easy decision, and one that affects your kids, our teachers, our school support staff and school administrators.

This week's guest on The Crushing Debt Podcast is Kellyann Goring, a former elementary school teacher with 22 years' experience who took early retirement and started www.Home2SchoolConnection.com to help parents and students understand how to successfully homeschool, distance learn, and go back to class in person.

Kellyann and I discuss:

  • The Students' Needs: social, emotional, academic, accountability and consistency.
  • The Teachers' Needs
  • Learning Pods
  • Daycare vs. In-class instruction
  • Classroom protocols, including recess and class size

You can reach Kellyann at the website above or by email at Kellyann@Home2SchoolConnection.com.
