The blog post they land on is this one: The Best “How I Got Out of Debt” Stories on the Web, and those searches have made it one of the more popular posts on The Family CEO.
While how-to articles, books, and blog posts are helpful, it doesn’t surprise me that people are searching for first person experiences of others who have gotten out of debt. Often we want to hear from another real, live person about how they’ve accomplished something we’d like to do.
That’s exactly the kind of info a couple of my fellow bloggers, Ben Edwards and Jeff Rose, have put together in their ebook, Get Out of Debt Like the Debt Heroes: How 21 Ordinary People Paid Off Over $1.7 Million in Debt.
And for the next two days it’s offered on Amazon for free in a Kindle version. (Even if you’re reading this post after the free period has expired, the price is only $2.99.)
I downloaded my copy this morning and I’m enjoying reading the summaries of how each debt hero got into debt and then climbed back out again. And because it’s an ebook, there are links to more information about each featured person in case you want more details.
If you would like to pay off some debt, I encourage you to check it out.
And I’m curious: do you find first person accounts helpful? Inspirational?
