April marks National Financial Literacy Month and the financial experts at CareOne Debt Relief Services want to help consumers celebrate by offering free resource guides. Financial literacy is important, especially in a recession where consumers fear layoffs, go through their savings to meet everyday expenses, or are unable to find work.
There are a total of fifteen resource guides available for download, each providing a variety of rich and diverse educational materials and resources, offering the kind of support consumers need to play an active role in their financial future. Some of the guides include:
- Debt Consolidation101
- Debt Consolidation vs. Debt Consolidation Loans: What is the difference?
- Guide to Choosing a Debt Relief Plan
- The CareOne Budget Planning Guide
- The CareOne Spending Journal
Handling debt is a tricky situation to navigate, especially if the facts are unknown. Consumers evaluating their debt relief options will find the resource guides provide all the information necessary to make a knowledgeable decision about how to handle debt.
CareOne founder, Bernie Dancel understands how the need for good information can positively impact ones financial situation. Dancel says, "At 22, I filed for personal bankruptcy because I thought it was my only option. With a pending divorce and the responsibility of supporting two households with one income, I was strained financially. I didn't know where to turn, so I contacted my lawyer, someone I thought I could trust. My lawyer recommended bankruptcy, unaware that I had other options to pay off my debt, I took the advice and filed for bankruptcy."
Dancel's realization that there are other options when it comes to debt relief is changing the lives of millions of CareOne customers. CareOne continues to provide financial education to consumers and customers though their online community, article library, and money management tools. The free resource guides are CareOne's way of educating consumers about all of their options so they can make smart decisions and reach their goal of financial freedom.
