Quick Money Tips: I’m Giving Away a $1,000 Scholarship to Pay Off Your Debt

Debt MovementIn today’s edition, we take a look at the Debt Movement. I’ve partnered with other bloggers and Ready For Zero in a campaign to help thousands of people pay down $10 million worth of debt in 90 days. The Debt Movement begins on February 1st, so there’s still time to sign up!

But even better news: I’m a $1,000 scholarship sponsor for the Debt Movement! Combined, we’re giving away over $15,000 in scholarships to people who are committed to conquering their debt. Join the Movement and, while you’re at it, apply for a scholarship–but only if you’re truly committed.

Like Jeff Rose of GoodFinancialCents.com, who’s spearheading the movement, I’ve personally seen the freeing effects that getting rid of debt can have on your life. Carrie, our contributor on debt topics here at PT Money is also a part of the community there at The Debt Movement. I hope you’ll join Carrie, Jeff, and I, and let this be the year you finally make some progress towards being debt free.
