Mark Blair
Dave Ramsey Certified Master Financial Coach

If you’re anything like me, you probably get credit card offers in the mailbox every day. No Annual Fee! No Interest on Purchases and Balance Transfers for 15 months! It sounds great…but let’s look at the fine print. After your intro APR ends, you’re on the hook for a 19.24% interest rate. And with interest rates going up, that number is only getting higher.

Credit card and loan companies spend millions of dollars each year on advertising for one reason: to get you in debt. Luckily, Debt Busters is here to give you the tools you need to break free once and for all. Dave Ramsey Affiliate Mark Blair gives out simple, but not necessarily easy, advice to walk you through the baby steps to financial freedom.

The first step is getting on the same page as your partner (romantic or business, as the case may be!) and making a budget that you will stick to every single month. You can’t be walking down one path while they’re running down the other – this has to be a team project. Next, you’re working on building up your emergency savings and paying off that debt! Finally, you’ll walk the very narrow path towards financial success, armed with those muscles you grew along the way. 

If that sounds like something your family needs, contact Mark Blair at Debt Busters Financial Coaching on Facebook or call 337-945-0454.
