Debt Consolidation and Personal Finances: Learn the Truth!


An inability to manage credit, growing debt and bankruptcy are all major problems today. On an average day, over 8,000 people file bankruptcy in the United States alone. The Internet is rife with companies that promise help and salvation; to the uninitiated, their words and assurances prey upon those wanting a painless solution.

The January post-holiday credit card bills are often the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back, where families now have to face the problem of how to pay for the holiday gifts and celebrations without sliding further into debt.

Avoiding these problems, and recovering from overwhelming debt, are what Real Life Debt.com is all about: it's a resource site that's dedicated to helping you learn about your options with credit card debt, debit cards, debt management, debt counseling, privacy, deciding about bankruptcy (and the different types of bankruptcy), and more.

Founder Dave Taylor explains "As a private, independent initiative, we're sure that you'll find Real Life Debt.com to be an excellent resource for understanding and managing your own financial issues. To ensure accuracy, the materials on this site are all from the United States government: one goal of Real-Life-Debt.com is to help people find the excellent material produced by the Federal Trade Commission, Federal Reserve, Consumer Information Center, and similar organizations."

In addition, Real Life Debt also features a weblog (a "blog") with postings from different individuals who share their own challenges managing their personal finances, including bankruptcy, credit card penalties, and much more.

Real Life Debt is an unbiased source of credit card, debt management, privacy and bankruptcy information, without commercial sponsors or a sales pitch. To ensure accuracy, much of the material is from U.S. government sites.

Dave Taylor has been involved with the Internet since 1980. He's written sixteen technical and business books including the best-selling "Creating Cool Web Sites", and his most recent projects are startup 101 info and Ask Dave Taylor.
