Best of Season 1 - MNP 3 Minute Debt Break

With the first season of the MNP 3 Minute Debt Break podcast wrapping up, we look back at a few of our most informative episodes. 

Financial Scams

Financial scams have been around for decades. But they have never been as common and invasive as they are today. The internet, online banking and countless other technologies have enabled fraudsters to invade people’s lives and trick them into handing over money, personal information and access to personal electronic devices. We’re all vulnerable, and we can all have our finances dramatically affected by scams. But, if you know some of the common scams out there, you can avoid becoming a victim. 

Consumer Proposals vs. Bankruptcy 

The bills are piling up. You’re constantly getting calls from creditors. You borrow money from friends and family but it doesn’t seem to be helping. You know that you need to do something, but… what? Is bankruptcy the only option? No. There are several alternatives. One option is to file a Consumer Proposal. There are multiple benefits of filing for a consumer proposal rather than a bankruptcy.

Younger People and Debt

The youth of today face a wide range of financial challenges that were mostly unheard of just a generation ago. The cost of rent, real estate, post secondary tuition and consumer products are all largely outpacing inflation. The thought of purchasing a home, paying off student loans or saving enough to retire comfortably seems increasingly out of reach.

Season two of the MNP 3 Minute Debt Break podcast begins in June so stay tuned for more bite-sized insights on how you can better manage your debt and stay on top of your finances.
