United We Stand, Divided We Fall

September 28, 2007

Most things are easier when they’re done with the support of a group.  Group collaboration and support are easier now than they used to be due to the communication medium of the web.  Nancy, from Debt Consolidation Care emailed me a while ago to let me know about the community they’ve built online to help people with debt problems.

According to the main page there are 91204 members, that’s a lot of people in debt : (  The site offers videos, calculators, and articles on debt in addition to the forum of people all dealing with debt.  They also feature a list of personal finance sites, one of which is Money Smart Life!  Nancy offered to add Money Smart Life to the list if I’d let my readers know about the community.

When a person signs up on the site they can elect to be referred to a debt counseling company in their area.  If I signed up, I wouldn’t use this feature simply because I’d want to research the available options myself and contact who was the best fit for me. Fortunately, the only debt we have is our mortgage so it’s not a place I’d hang out but it seems to be a good resource for those that need it.
