Money Plan SOS with Steve Stewart

By Steve Stewart

What’s it like to have no debt, no credit cards, and no credit score? It sounds like freakish existence in today’s world, but it’s what this podcast is all about. Steve Stewart hasn’t had a single credit card or consumer debt since 2007. In 2010, he launched the Money Plan SOS podcast to share the knowledge gained while living a credit-free lifestyle. Along the way he learned about the negative effects of building a credit score and eventually found a way to be credit worthy - even without a mortgage! The understanding you will gain from listening to the Money Plan SOS podcast is that you truly can have NO DEBT, NO CREDIT, and have NO PROBLEMS! Listen as I walk you through the thoughts and ideas I had while going from a negative net worth to half a million in liquid assets and a paid-for house. You too can have no debt, no credit, and no problems.
