When the New Year comes, we all think about how we can do better than the year before. I know this is the time of year when potential clients receive more creditor phone calls. The relief your creditors may have offered during the Christmas season are probably over, and you may be preparing to tackle your financial problems.
All New Year’s resolutions are hard to keep; but I think resolving to organize your finances is the most difficult resolution of all.
For one thing, your finances may be affected by things beyond your control (like the loss of a job). Secondly, your finances are often a family issue: It is not easy to discuss financial problems with your spouse or tell your children you will be cutting back.
Remember, the first step is always the most difficult step in any resolution. You may not feel as though you’ve done enough to improve your finances, but keep in mind that seeking professional help is huge.
The best part of my job is helping people feel more financially stable. Sometimes, filing bankruptcy may help you keep your resolution and have a better financial year. If bankruptcy is not your best option, then I may be able to offer alternative advice during your free consultation.
If your debts have become unmanageable and you want a fresh start this year, call us and set up an appointment so that we can go over your options.
