Americans are swamped in $1 trillion of combined credit card debt, and they pay over $1200 a year on interest. In Australia, it’s not much better. If a person makes $80,000 a year, they end up spending more than $160,000 in that same year.
What if there was a different way? What if you could get out of the cycle of debt and Live Within Your Means comfortably?
The problem is the advice you get from most financial coaches is all wrong. They tell you to work towards Freedom from debt. They might think that’s good advice, but it’s not. Because that approach just doesn’t work.
If you choose a financial coach randomly, they’ll likely tell you that the secret to defeating debt is paying back your highest interest rate loans first. Logically, that makes sense. I mean, we spend huge amounts of money on interest, so paying off high interest rate loans first should get us debt free faster. Right?
