Summary: Credit repair expert Paul Oster comes on FSN to talk about the importance of paying off your debt—especially in our current economy. Since stimulus checks are no longer being issued, it’s time to re-acclimate and formulate a plan for debt free living. As rates go up, it will take people more money and a longer period of time to pay off debt. Once you create a plan to get out of debt, you’ll wish you had started sooner. Tune in for more insight from Paul, and visit his website for credit repair resources and coaching.
