Commentary: Get out and stay out of credit card debt as fast as you can.


Fun Chart:
I made this chart in collaboration with my firm to help represent desired growth versus reality. ย As long as you are trending upward, you are moving in the right direction. ย The purple line is unrealistic. ย Get rich quick schemes are exactly that – schemes.
