I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the awesome readers at The Dollar Stretcher.
I'm Steve Rhode, the Get Out of Debt Guy, and I help good people to deal with bad debt. That's my story in a nutshell.
But for people who might be facing money troubles and worries, you are not alone. I've faced money problems myself and in 1990 I filed for bankruptcy. It would be hard to imagine being more down and out than I was at that time. If it hadn't been for my parents taking my wife, daughter and myself in, We would have been homeless. Thank goodness for family.
From that experience I learned a lot about dealing with debt. In 1994 I founded a nonprofit credit counseling agency. We did some very innovative things and in fact opened the first inpatient treatment program for compulsive spenders. In 2006 I moved to England to help people over their with debt problems, After a couple of years I moved back to the U.S. and I now live in Raleigh, North Carolina. Along the way I've written a number of books and you can download them for free If you want to learn more about me, you can click here.
These days I work from home and just help people for free by providing advice and compassionate help. People come to my site at GetOutOfDebt.org and ask me questions. With over 19,000 posts on the site, there is almsot an endless amount of information and advice to draw from for help and advice.

Both Gary Foreman of The Dollar Stretcher and I started providing advice online around the same time in the early 1990s. Gary's been focused on helping people find creative ways to do better financially and I've been saving people from disaster for decades.
Recently Gary and I were talking and we decided offering Dollar Stretcher readers access to what I knew about dealing with debt would be a smart thing to do. So here I am.
