November is officially Financial Literacy Month!

This means that there is going to be a wealth of information available.

Another useful tool is my own 60-Second Financial Check-up, where you can quickly diagnose your debts and see if you need help dealing with your creditors.

Whatever your situation, if your creditors are harassing you or if your bills are stressing you out, give Sean Stack, licensed trustee in bankruptcy, a call at 709-221-5500 to find out what your options are for getting your finances back on track.
