Don't Mess Around with Debt

Debt is a serious matter, no matter the amount! Don't mess around with debt. It's not something to be swept under the rug.

If you have the means to pay it off, do so as soon as possible. Don't let the allure of a fancy lifestyle blind you to the reality of your financial situation.

In the end, you'll only be doing yourself a disservice.

We all want to be the big shot sometimes. It feels good to treat our family and friends to a fancy dinner, buy some unnecessary thing for the home, or pay the bar tab without even thinking about it.

CURATOR'S NOTE

However, despite these challenges, I have managed to overcome most of my financial difficulties. While I still have some remaining debt, I have plans to address it.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
