Independence From Debt

The Declaration of Independence was the document that announced to the world the American colonies status as free and independent states.  It was adopted in Congress on July 4, 1776.  The final sentence reads: “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”.

I want the best for everyone everywhere and this article won’t travel down a political road, other than to make a comment that we, as a people, have become complacent.  I’m reminded of these words: “But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last first”.  I’ll now turn this article’s steering wheel into the Personal Finance Path.  Woah!  Look out!  It’s a rocky road and for some there’s a roadblock up ahead.  Fortunately, with a little maneuvering, the roadblock can be avoided altogether.  And don’t ask me about the cliff – we’ll get to that later.

The Broken Credit Blog is thankful for the many positive responses from readers who’ve shared true to life experiences of how they’ve triumphed over adversity.  It’s the goal of this site to be a positive voice in the marketplace sharing free information to anyone desiring credit score improvement.  This month marks our eighteenth-month on the internet and we’ve recorded over two million hits in one month.  We are at the same time, amazed and thankful – it keeps us writing and working for you.

In my view, personal finances are similar to personal fitness.  I regularly see people working out at the gym with a personal trainer.  The same trainer may be working out with one person on one day and another on another day.  Regardless of that person’s fitness level, the trainer’s goal is to improve that individual at that time.  It doesn’t matter how out-of-shape or how Olympic-world-champion someone might be – the trainer’s goal is to assist that person with improvement.  Such is the same as the Broken Credit Blog’s role.

So, wherever you are, and whatever your station in life, this trainer wants to see improvement in you.  I hope everyone enjoys their 4th of July and remembers what prompted the celebration in the first place.  Now then, after everyone has finished eating hamburgers and hotdogs, it’s time to start working out.

Hey you with the 672 FICO, give me eight more reps!
