What People Overlook After They Get Out Of Debt
Guest contributor, Neal Frankle of Wealth Pilgrim.com
One of the many things I love about Barb’s personal finance blog is that it provides a wealth of strategies to help you build a solid financial future. As Barbara repeatedly points out, the first order of business is to get out of debt if you have any.
That step is very clear. But what many people overlook is the aftermath that debt leaves. The problem is, if you were late in making payments or had a charge off or two, when you were struggling, that leaves a mark on your credit score – even if you subsequently get current on all your bills.
