COOL QUOTE

Talking about debt collectors..."One guy called me everyday last week. I said, 'Look, every month I put everyone I owe into a hat, I pick three names, I pay those people. And if you call me one more time I'm taking you out of the hat.' They all want to be in the hat." --Margaret Smith, Comedian

LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER 
by Scott Bilker

Hi,

Did you hear the Federal Reserve report that consumer credit rose? Oh, yeah. Revolving loans, which include credit cards, went up by 5.3% or $3.17 billion in May!

This is due to lower borrowing rates plus positive consumer spending attitude. Experts are saying that the economy is still not doing well but keep in mind that there is a difference between "the economy" and "your economy."

"The economy" is what you hear about on television, i.e., unemployment, stock market, real estate, etc. I don't have to tell you about "your economy" except to say that it's all that matters.

Don't worry so much about the big picture; focus on your world.

Regards, Scott PS: Please let me know what you think of my latest article in "Woman's World" if you happen to have read the 7/15/03 issue.

BOOK REVIEW 
By Harold McFarland, Editor, "Readers Preference Reviews"

"Talk Your Way Out of Credit Card Debt provides solid advice on getting your rate reduced, annual fees waived, removing a late payment fee, handling disputes, and many other common problems when dealing with credit card companies. More than just advice, it is a collection of detailed examples of phone calls including complete transcripts. Each transcript demonstrates how the author handled a particular issue and the results of the call. Not content to just give one example of getting an interest rate lowered or removing over limit fees, each type of problem has several transcripts so you can get a good feel for what to expect and how to handle it. Most people are not aware of how much power they have when dealing with a credit card company and how to get things changed. This book walks the reader through the process from beginning to end and is a recommended read for anyone looking to gain control of his or her credit card situation.

10 FINANCIAL QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF TODAY! 
by Scott Bilker

To quote the very well know motivational speaker, Anthony Robbins, "Questions are the answer." What exactly does he mean? Tony believes, as do I, that you have the ability to find the answer to any question. They key is to ask the right questions.

If you're constantly asking yourself, "Why was I so stupid to get into debt?" Then your brain is going to give you answer like, "Because you're a loser."

The thing to remember is that your brain will keep working on your question subconsciously until you get an answer. We've all had the experience...

THE TOP 10 DESTRUCTIVE MONEY BELIEFS (and How to Overcome Them) 
by Dan Klatt

If you're not making as much money as you'd like, then you're holding onto some negative beliefs about yourself and how much money you're capable of handling.

In this article we'll go through 10 of the most common (and most limiting) examples of how people hold themselves back financially.

Subscribers to my ezine, "The Abundant Mind," get a Money Beliefs Quiz. From their results I've compiled these Top 10 Destructive Money Beliefs. How many can you relate to?

10. "Money is not spiritual."

Here's the belief that you're somehow more spiritual or more likely to have a better afterlife if you sacrifice greatly this time around. Or that you'll suffer after you die if you pursue the things you want, which you need money to buy. This belief is most often...

DEBTSMART HELP CENTER 
By Scott Bilker

Helping you with your debt is very important to me personally! If you've been reading my articles, you know that I always encourage self-help as a first step. However, being buried in debt can be very overwhelming, which is why you may want to explore other options.

One of those options is professional, ongoing help with credit counselors. I've started to personally check out certain companies so I can recommend the ones that are worth considering!

If you would like to speak with a representative from a...

TOP TEN WAYS TO DEAL WITH OVERWHELM 
by Michael Angier

Lately, many of the people I've been talking with or coaching have been complaining about being overwhelmed. I have to admit that I've been wrestling with it too.

My ideas and my commitments seem to far outpace my time and energy. So here's my advice to you--and to myself--for dealing with overwhelm.

1. Recognize that overwhelm isn't real. It's not something that attacks us. It's a feeling we experience based upon a belief there's too much to do and too little time to do it. It's fear- plain and simple. And once we recognize...
