I am not sure if you are the same Steve Rhode I wrote to about 7 years ago. I heard about you on the TV show Starting Over, with Rhonda Britten. I wrote to you asking advice on how to get out of the large debt we had from attempting to start our own business, while also experiencing all the stress of having a sick child. At the time, you told us our best option was to borrow any money we needed to in order to file Chapter 13.
You also said that it would be best, at this point, for my husband to work for someone else. We did exactly what you said, and have always been so grateful to you for that advice.
Now, 7 years later, we have great credit again, paid off the bankruptcy, and my husband is earning his Masters while teaching High School.
My question is this: Now that we are not in debt, what is the next step we should take to have greater financial security? We don’t have any savings. Is that the best place to start?
If you have a credit or debt question you’d like to ask just use the online form. I’m happy to help you totally for free.I Wrote You When You Were the Debt Coach on the TV Show Starting Over. - Sari by Steve Rhode
