Declaration of Independence from Debt – Fourth of July

In 1776 when our forefathers declared our independence from Great Britain, they started with a great vision of what our country could be. Free, independent, self governing. As the 4th of July  approaches, its a good time to think about what independence really means. We think declaration of independence from debt is part of it!

American Consumer Credit Counseling can help you become free from debt.

For the vast majority of people enslaved by debt or just making ends meet, true independence can only come through financial well being.

“No taxation without representation” was the battle cry way back then. Now, for many, its “Interest due – without further value.” Carrying a load of debt can practically ensure that you and your family will never be free from the enslavement of compounding interest.

How about declaring – here and now – when exactly you will be out of debt?

When will your Financial Independence Day be? Declare it as a goal.  If you haven’t yet taken the steps to move toward this goal, resolve to do so as we celebrate the birth of our Nation.

Use our debt payoff calculators to get a better handle on how long it will take to pay off your debt. Use the educational materials to be found all over our site, the blog, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get weekly information to help you achieve your goal of Financial Independence.

Our forefathers (and foremothers?) did not establish our country by idly thinking about the ideals, and putting their decisions off for a few centuries. They took action, and that is exactly what we all must do to accomplish our financial goals.

Why wait until New Year’s to get started on a Resolution that may have fallen by the wayside? You’re just about halfway through 2011 and now is a good time to recommit to the principles of “Life,  Liberty and the Pursuit of debt-freeness.” (Okay, so I paraphrased.)

Independence from debt is not a dream. It’s a goal. Napolean Hill said, “A goal is a dream with a deadline.” We wish you a declaration of independence from debt while we celebrate our Nation’s birth.

If you’re struggling to pay off debt, ACCC can help. Schedule a free credit counseling session with us today.
