Thanks @debtfreeguys and @Experian. Great #creditchat today!

A9 If you're in over your head seek information/help. Steps should include starting with how to budget and setting your goal. #creditchat

A7 - Vertex 42 has some of the best spreadsheets out there! #creditchat

Download a free Debt Reduction Calculator spreadsheet and eliminate your debt using the debt snowball or other debt reduction strategies.
