The Debt Movement: Working Together to Pay Down $10,000,000 of Debt in 90 Days

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to finally get control of your finances, pay off your debts and start enjoying life? Then we’ve got just the thing for you!

Today is an exciting day! After many hours and month of preparation, we are officially launching The Debt Movement.

This project comes from Jeff Rose, the founder of the movement, and ReadyForZero, a company passionate about helping people pay off debt.

What is the Debt Movement?

The Debt Movement is a project to help people pay off $10,000,000 of debt in 90 days. That’s a lot of debt! But if we work together we believe we can achieve this goal.

Jeff has partnered with ReadyForZero, the personal finance blogging community and other financial experts to educate you, in your quest of becoming debt free.

Here’s how it all started:

Why $10 million?

We’re convinced that by working together, sharing tips, ideas and inspiration, we can help you reach financial freedom faster.

It’s hard to strive towards a goal on your own – we know, cause we’ve been there too.

But like with any other goal, you’re much more likely to succeed if you have people to share it with, to be accountable to. Other people can offer ideas that you may not have discovered on your own, and we’ll be here to keep you motivated when you’re tempted to give up.

Key highlights:

  • Our goal is to collectively payoff $10 million in 90 days
  • Over 100 bloggers and media outlets are supporting the movement
  • We’re giving away over $15,000 of Debt Scholarships
  • Join us every week for Google Hangouts with “financial experts” to answer your debt questions

How Can The Debt Movement Help You?

The Debt Movement starts today (January 2, 2013) and goes through April 2013. The first 30 days are dedicated to educating you and getting the word out about the movement.

We’ll be publishing debt stories from people just like you, along with strategies to pay down debt faster, earn more money and much more.

We also have our debt forums available, that’s open for questions, answers and input to help solve your debt problems. And during the month of January, you can apply for a Debt Scholarships - to help you jump start your debt repayment plan!

During this time, we’ll be tracking the progress and celebrating the debt milestones together – which will help everyone stay motivated throughout the 90 days.
