How many times have your ears perked up in your adult life when an ad pierced through from the heavens declaring, “Are you drowning in credit card debt? We can save you!”?  Dozens? Hundreds even?

Now – how many times have you believed in their earnest oath? Zilch-town? We thought so.

What we’ve found in the world of credit is that the individuals and companies that remain ahead are those with honest character and agile follow-through. 

When I first met Harvey Warren in our Malibu corporate office, this Abraham Lincoln quote came to mind: “Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing”.

There is a certain confidence in Warren’s demeanor that sets you at ease in a way you’d imagine Honest Abe to have the ability to do. No preaching, no scare tactics, just a durable set of rules and examples to build a new financial future.

Dropping debt is a frightening topic that is quite frankly, not worth ignoring. Warren makes ridding your closet of skeletons a bit less like a haunted hayride and more like following the yellow brick road.

While Dun and Bradstreet Credibility maintains a strong commitment to helping business owners manage their business credit, we also realize the importance of managing your personal credit.

With this in mind, we invited Warren to visit many of our offices to help employees understand how they can better take responsibility for their personal credit score.

Warren has traveled to both our corporate office in Malibu and most recently to our office in Tucson. He is just as dedicated to informing the public when it comes to assessing one’s financial situation and learning the truth behind dropping your own personal debt without alarming consequences. We like to think that great minds think alike.

Drop Debt is his new book full of powerful testimonies and rarely reported info. Warren shows us that learning to live within your means is almost as simple as the rules of Fight Club, “The Three Keys to Successful Budgeting: 1) Stick with it. 2) Stick with it. 3) Stick with it.”

Have any questions for Harvey?

Put them in the comments and I’ll be more than happy to follow up with him in an interview and a second article!
