Need a Debt Coach? The Debt Movement is Here to Help

debt coachThink about this…..

Michael Jordan, one of the great basketball players of all time, had a coach.

Sir Richard Branson, one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time, has several business and life coaches.

Two years ago I even hired a business coach to help improve my business and way of life.

Having a coach is invaluable to help you achieve your goals, desires, and a better way of life.

Most people don’t hire coaches, because they are afraid of the cost. That was something that I fought for a long time. Something my wife still does. Ha ha… :)

2 years later I don’t look at my coaching program as “cost” or an “expense”. I now view it as an investment as it’s changed my life in so many ways- business wise, family wise and spiritually wise.

In fact, I know that I never would have been able to start The Debt Movement had it not been for my coaching program.

After a few false starts and partial escapes from old ways of thinking, Jarim got completely fed up with his situation in 2009 and vowed to eliminate the cycle of poverty/ “Keeping up with the Joneses” status quo that had tried to claim him and so many people he knew in his community.
