Unsecured Debt Including federal student loans and IRS tax debt
Change the Way you Think
Transforming your debt mentality to a wealth mindset starts by minimizing or removing your debt balances. If you're still thinking 'I can make payments' you’re not going to accumulate wealth.
“I can't afford to pay cash for the good things in life, so I will make payments so I can enjoy them now.”
Change the way you think. Change your financial outcome.
“By minimizing or avoiding purchases that consume my monthly income with payments, I can quickly grow my cash flow to accommodate a more vibrant financial future.”
Mindset Case Study
How debt can steal your future:
Consider a real-life client with $112,000 of unsecured debt and a minimum payment of $1,426. If that debt payment was not an obligation, that monthly payment could turn into $588,000 in just 20 years at a simple 5% interest rate. What are you missing out on because of your monthly debt payments?

Reduce your debt with our proprietary programV.A.S.T.
The letters in the word ‘V.A.S.T.’ each stand for a powerful strategy that can work on your behalf to help reduce and remove your personal debt.
Validation is a process that legally challenges the validity of how your debts are collected. This process demands that creditor's prove they have followed the letter of the law when collecting your debt. If a creditor cannot verify the law has been followed, the debt is not collectable.
Bottom Line The failure of the creditor to follow the law could make your debt(s) uncollectible and you can be released from those debt(s).
The assumption process changes the terms and conditions of your creditor contract(s). Even after changes are accepted by the creditor, the new terms are not followed. This results in fees/fines charged to the creditor, offsetting the original debt. Each case is unique so be sure to contact your agent and set an appointment to learn the details.
Bottom Line Like validation, assumption is an option allowing you to choose what program works for you - either way you end up debt free!
Our settlement agency negotiates with your creditors on your behalf to establish more favorable terms—lower payoff balances and a more advantageous payment schedule.
Bottom Line New terms can result in lower monthly payments and a shorter time frame to become debt free.

The 2 Key Wealth Milestones
Protecting your income and building your wealth are two of the critical milestones on your journey to 'Turn Debt to Wealth.'
Protect Your Income
The next step towards wealth is to help prevent your family from falling into debt and financial hardship again. You can do that by protecting your income with life insurance.
The 2 Basic Types of Life Insurance
Temporary (Term) Life Insurance
Term life insurance provides protection for a specified period of time—like 10, 20, or 30 years. It’s known for being affordable because it provides one core feature—a death benefit—and because it expires after the term.
Permanent Life Insurance
Like term, permanent life insurance provides a death benefit to protect your family financially; however, it’s designed to be kept for life—not just a term.
Additional benefits of permanent life insurance are riders that protect against terminal illness, chronic illness, even long term care needs. Permanent insurance can be a powerful tool used to accrue tax-free income during retirement and leave a tax-free inheritance as a legacy for your family.
