After I lost my business due to financial woes, I knew that I needed to pay closer attention to my finances. My personal pocketbook wasn't looking so great either. I was behind on my mortgage, and my car payments were past due. I knew that I had to do something, but I wasn't pulling in enough money to put a dent in my expenses.

She explained that my debts could be wiped away, which made me feel happy about starting over. This blog is all about deciding to clean your financial slate.
