Personal finance made easy.
Introduction
Welcome to Free From Broke!

I'm Glen Craig and I'm the publisher (among the many hats I wear)!

Years ago I was up to my chin in credit card debt with no savings; basically living paycheck-to-paycheck.

I knew this was ridiculous so I set out to change my lifestyle.

I've gotten rid of my credit card card debt and am now happily married with three kids.  Our finances aren't perfect, but it's a work in progress that improves all the time.

Come join me at Free From Broke and learn how to take control of your personal finances, build your wealth, and learn a bit about the economy as well.

Here are some topics we cover:

  • Credit Cards - Reviews of the best ones, how to handle your credit card debt, and how to best maximize your credit card use.
  • Debt - Dealing with debt, getting out of debt, and how to stay out of debt.
  • Investing - Covering the different investments that are out there and how to use them.
  • Credit Scores and Reports - What they are and how to keep on top of them, how to improve your credit score, fixing errors on your credit report, and more.
  • Saving - Building up an emergency fund, online savings accounts, great online checking accounts, and more.
  • Taxes - Review of popular tax software, new tax law changes, tax brackets, and everything to help you with your taxes.

And if you haven't already, sign up for the Free From Broke Newsletter to stay in the loop on what's going on at the site.

I'm looking forward to seeing your comments and interacting with you here on Google+!

Stay Free From Broke,
Glen
