Debt Reduction

Zoom Webinar: December 16, 2021 @ 10:00 – 11:00 am

While there are definitely industry guidelines around how much debt a person ‘should’ have, do they really apply to you? Do you represent the ‘average’ person that these formulae were designed to predict? What if you have extraordinary spending behaviours or have other large cash flow commitments? What if you choose to spend less in a traditional area only to spend more in a non-traditional area? Learning about the type of debt you have, the cost of borrowing and possible debt reduction techniques will enable you to assess whether you are within your ‘personal’ debt tolerance levels.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Learn about commercial debt ratios that lenders use
  • Understand the concepts behind identifying whether or not you have too much debt for your personal situation
  • Learn how a cash flow and net worth statement differ for debt reduction in comparison to other ones you may have completed in the past
  • Be able to identify debt reduction strategies that can work for your personal situation including consolidation, credit counseling, bankruptcy, personal proposals and much more.
