MoneyPlan SOS with Steve Stewart | Budget Wisely | Get out of debt | Pay attention, not interest


My wife and I went from a negative net worth of $70,000 to no debt, thousands in savings, and a paid-for house. We did not win the lottery or receive an inheritance...we simply PAID ATTENTION - NOT INTEREST. I’ve been inspiring others to pay off their debt, live without credit cards, and avoid the distractions of building credit scores in order to build wealth instead. Below are 5 years of encouraging and educational episodes to help you spend wisely, save more, and escape the trappings of debt. More information at
