As a financial consultant, I am amazed at what a small amount of
understanding most of my clients have of credit card companies and how
they work. I find that many financial struggles people go through could
be lessened significantly simply through education about credit card
companies and other significant factors that influence our financial
situations greatly.

It is for this reason that I have shifted the entire focus of my career
to becoming a financial consultant whose emphasis is on financial
education. I realized that the teacher in me needs an avenue to
communicate with people and so I have shifted focus. Why? Not simply
because I love being able to teach, but also because I have a huge issue
with how little understanding people have of the most basic information
about finances. I began my new job by taking a ton of surveys to the
streets. One of my main surveys was to collect information about people's
views of credit card companies.

You might be shocked to learn what a poor understanding of credit card
companies that people have today. So few people realize that for the most
part, credit card companies are out to get you and to make you pay as
much in fees and in interest as possible. I was amazed by the number of
people who honestly felt like paying the minimum monthly fee to their
credit card companies was really the way to go.

If you or someone you know is in great need of learning the truth about
credit card companies or about anything else to do with finances, then
look for a financial consultant in your area today. Set up a meeting and
bring a list of prepared questions to discuss with the consultant. Your
goal is to get the truth about as many areas of finances as you can. You
cannot live your life in denial of the fact that finances play a huge
role in life, so be proactive and learn about credit card companies and
all of the other potential enemies you have to watch out for in handling
your money.

Learn that credit card companies want you to overspend and to pay them
interest for many months and years because of it. Learn that people are
out to get you and that you need to be aware of the truth of credit card
companies and other financial institutions.
