How to get out of debt in 5 simple steps - Clark Howard

"Being in debt can be a stressful experience. No matter what your circumstance is, if you signed for a loan, you are obligated to pay it back even if you have a life-altering experience like losing a job, getting into an accident, or even if you have increased expenses due to having a child.

Sometimes debt can just be an unintended consequence of too much holiday spending — or overspending any time of year. Many people try to get out of debt, but life slaps them in the face hard enough that they give up. But that doesn’t have to be the case. There are so many people who are getting out of debt every single day, and not only that, but they are getting out of debt in a short period of time.

So if you’re ready to get on a path to financial freedom, it’s important to have a plan for how you’re going to tackle that debt!.."

What is an Unsecured Debt?

"An unsecured debt is an obligation or debt that does not have specific property—like your house or car—serving as collateral for payment of the debt. If you fail to make payment on an unsecured debt, the creditor can't take any of your property without first suing you and getting a court judgment (subject to a few exceptions).

A secured debt, on the other hand, has a piece of property serving as collateral for the debt. If you fail to make payments, the creditor can take the property..."

Make Better Business Decisions Using the Time Value of Money

That’s a shame, because the time value of money is a crucial business concept, and understanding it can help you in so many ways.

What to Do if Your Aging Parents Are Going Broke

"It’s a money leak that no one’s talking about: Nearly one in four Americans helps support a parent financially, according to a Care.com survey. But most families don’t discuss the issue — or the dollars involved — until a health or other crisis arises, says Jody Gastfriend, vice president of senior care at Care.com.
Without a game plan, you could wind up footing large unexpected bills, harming your own finances, and providing lesser-quality care for your parents. To be more prepared, address the issue before it’s an emergency..."
