Whilst we would all like to think that every cent we earn works for us positively, sometimes the dollars and cents just don’t add up, causing debt.
According to new research from ING, 25% of all Australians and 51% of millennials ignore their debt because they don’t want to talk about it. Moreover, of those ING surveyed, one in three said that they are not sure what they could be doing differently to manage debt (37%) and are concerned they will never get out of it (38%).

Even the richest of the rich have debt. But the big difference is the rich leverage good debt (deductible debt) to maximise their nest egg. In contrast, others accumulate bad debt (non-deductible), which sends them into a financial spiral.
The key to achieving good debt and minimalising bad debt lies within expert debt management. On the Gold Coast, there is no better debt management advisory firm than that of Centaur Financial Services.
If your debts are preventing you from building on your nest egg, then chances are, bad debt, such as credit card debt, is pulling you down; working against you. Good debt, such as your mortgage, on the other hand, is building your nest egg; working for you.
