Why we are breaking up with Debt

Here at MMI, we are always looking for new ways to approach the complex topic of debt. So in an effort to make the subject more relatable, we recently launched the “Break up with Debt. For good.” awareness campaign.

The “Break up with Debt” campaign takes a light-hearted look at this very serious subject — with the hope that we can help more people realize that there is always a way out of a toxic relationship. And much like a bad romantic relationship, your relationship with debt can negatively affect every aspect of your life, from health problems like depression and insomnia to lost productivity at work.

And while factors like tax increases, student loans and the ever-changing economic landscape have left many feeling trapped in their relationships with debt, it’s important to remember that these are beyond your control. While your credit card debt, on the other hand, is something that can be controlled.

And we want to empower you to take that control back through our Debt Breakup blog series, right here on Blogging for Change. This series will guide you through the breakup process, and offer valuable tools and resources to help you break free from Debt once and for all.

If you missed it:

And if you’re ready to break it off, once and for all?

MMI differs from other debt repayment services by teaching consumers to trim expenses, develop a spending plan, repay debts, and develop the financial know-how to effectively manage their finances for life.

The process starts with a free, no-obligation counseling session. Give us a call at 866.412.2227 to learn more about how MMI can help you break free from Debt, and begin to build a healthy relationship with your finances.
