Debt complicates not only our finances, but our emotions too. Much of the stress surrounding debt simply comes from not addressing it in the first place. It’s time to change that!

With your assistance, clients will have a more productive conversation around debt, develop strong reasons for paying off their debt, and identify the most optimal path for getting there.

This flowchart covers important decision-making factors a client must consider when tackling their debts, such as:

  • Maintaining their emergency fund, despite any potential conflicting priorities.
  • Balancing the importance of paying off debt without jeopardizing any other financial goals they previously set for themselves.
  • Identifying sound rationale and motivations for paying off debt, and determining the best course of action.
