Living Financially Healthy

What’s the leading cause of unhealthy behaviors like smoking, weight gain, and alcohol and drug abuse? Financial stress, says the American Psychological Association (APA). In fact, an estimated 60% of illness is directly or indirectly caused by financial stress.

How to get financially healthy is the focus of Talk Credit Radio this week. Host Gerri Detweiler will talk with Marcia Brixey, founder of Money Wise Women, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and empowering women to live financially healthy. Marcia hosts and speaks at Money Wise Women Conferences, hosts the popular Money Wise Women Get Smart Teleseminar Series, and is the author of The Money Therapist: A Woman’s Guide to Creating a Healthy Financial Life. Marcia will share practical ways to better manage your money, including her “checkout checklist.”

Collectors Calling About A Debt That’s Not Yours?

If you’re being hounded by collectors for someone else’s debt, find out what you can to do stop them. A jury recently awarded a woman $1.26M in a case involving debt collection for the wrong person. Gerri will explain how to handle collection calls for a debt that doesn’t belong to you.
