Thumbs up OH What A Feeling!!!!

What a feeling. I started up my business myself and financed it the dangerous way. Well over the last few years I Have been carrying HUGE credit card debt with not the best interest rates due to my credit getting out of wack durring my business start up. Anyhow today I paid off the largest balance card that also had the highest interest rate (Discover) and cancelled the card I am SO PUMPED!!!!! Two more cards to go and then my truck payment and I will be back to a new beginning!!!

Put your best foot forward!

That is a cool feeling huh? You should feel proud of yourself by owning your oun business.
I called my credit card companys a few years back and said I was closing the account. When they asked why, I said because the interest rate was too high. Two of the companys lowered my rate big time. I paid them off and closed all but one.

Congratulations Jon. That's exactly how I started mine years ago (and $2000 from "Mother's Savings and Loan". I remember getting cash advances on a cc to go make the payment on the same cc.
