Debt Management: A Path to Peace of Mind
Grateful if we could share this on our facebook page with the following quote: Debt Management: A Path to Peace of Mind
“I don’t think we should think of debt as a negative thing. Most of us use debt in our personal lives to buy a house or the buy a car, so it improves our lives. It’s a positive thing: it enables us to buy a home or own a car and in the same way, the correct use of debt will help a business grow faster, can help a business’ profitability… Debt isn’t all bad” (Donald Forsyth, Partner, Saffray Champnes)
This webinar will help remove the stigma of debt and give businesses the confidence to see.
