Mental attitude is key
"Most of us probably have, or will fall into debt. Unfortunately, we live in a country in which it is difficult to earn a solid life without the help of your family or friends. I am mainly talking about financial support here. Sure - debts can be avoided, but I don't think it likely, considering my experience and..."
Consistency and determination
"I wish to describe how I helped my mother, a 62-year old retired woman, repay her debits on two credit cards that she couldn't settle for 2 years due to low income and high interest on those cards.The total value of the debt on both cards amounted to almost 2 thousand zloty, which for a retired person, whose..."
