The average U.S. household is tied to an alarming $203,163 of debt, but as you will soon see, one Iraq War veteran is fighting back with a 14-Week Debt Elimination Boot Camp anyone can use to wage their own financial war.
“The personal debt problem is an epidemic,” says Aaron DeHoog, the financial publisher at Newsmax. “Wall Street actually cheers on recent reports that Americans are spending more, but unfortunately, they are spending money that they don’t have!”
It should be noted that a lot of the $203,163 owed by the average American household isn’t necessarily classified as “bad debt.” Much of it is tied to college loans and mortgages . . . but unfortunately, those investments haven’t paid off, as many can’t find jobs even with a degree, and actually owe more on their house than it is worth.
Having a shackle this big around one’s financial life can be damning in other areas as well. New research by Kansas State University found that couples who argued about money were at a great risk for divorce. In fact, financial woes turned out to be a better predictor for separation than disagreements about children, sex, in-laws, or anything else.
Job performance is also related to one’s financial situation. Debt struggles usually have a major negative impact on how well you do your job. The nonprofit Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) discovered that many of their clients had “constant worries about debt” and “found it difficult to concentrate” at work.
And if you have a lot of debt, plan on having health issues as well. The journal Social Science & Medicine stated that high financial debt is now associated with higher blood pressure, lower self-esteem, and even declining mental health.
Unfortunately, as many people are now realizing (too late), getting out of debt is far from easy, and can be filled with land mines.
There are numerous “debt relief” and “credit repair” schemes out there. Some ask for monthly “service fees.” Others tell you to stop talking to your current lenders. A few even withdraw money directly from your bank to “help” pay your debts!
Now, that’s not to say there aren’t good debt advisory services. Financial gurus like David Ramsey and Suze Orman come to mind. But their programs can cost up to $200 or more. So, you have to get into more debt to find out how to get out of debt.
Jeff Rose, an Iraq War veteran turned certified financial planner (CFP), offers a new option.
Jeff created an intense-but-doable 14-Week Debt Elimination Boot Camp. He outlines the details of his program in his new book “Soldier of Finance” and he recently teamed up with Newsmax Media to give the book away for free.
