Sponsored by Naked - The new way to insure your stuff
In this episode I'm chatting to Mr Money Rehab - you can find him on Twitter at @MoneyRehab_
Mr Money Rehab is a customer experience practitioner in the financial industry and a financial coach on the side. He has a great perspective on debt in that it's not all bad. In fact, the economy wouldn't grow if we didn't have debt, and debt is just a tool. It's really how we use it that becomes detrimental to our future, or perhaps it helps us.
The most interesting section is the part on how to get out of debt where the first, and most important step is to admit that you have a problem! After that you can work on your budget and then look at three commonly used strategies for paying off debt.
(These are described in more detail in this post - How to pay off debt faster)
