BYU Personal Finance Online Course (How to Get Back on Track After a Debt Lawsuit)

George Simons | December 01, 2022

At SoloSuit we focus primarily on helping people bounce back after hitting rock bottom: getting sued for a debt.

(What is SoloSuit?)

There's this misconception that everyone who gets sued for a debt is “poor”: trust me they're not. People in all income brackets get sued for debts, and many of those people don't even actually owe the debt.

That said, many people who get sued for a debt need broader financial help. They need to learn core personal financial management skills to keep them from getting into debt next time.

That's a little outside of SoloSuit's scope for now, but we are able to recommend some excellent resources for people looking to permanently better their financial life.

One of those resources is Brigham Young University's Personal Finance Course.

It's online. It's awesome. It's free.

What more do you need to know?

I've taken the course personally and can definitely say it's a game changer. The resources it provides are incredible and it is absolutely mind blowing that is free.

It's resources page is particularly valuable. Professor Sudweeks, the author of the course has created exceptionally handy Excel calculator tools (remarkably, I think he does this for fun) that calculate things from how long until your debt free to whether it's better to lease or to buy a car.

Next time, before you buy a payday loan, stop and run it through this calculator. It will show you how much you'll actually have to pay for that loan. You won't want it after that.

So anyways, without any further ado, this is our primary recommended resource for SoloSuit customers looking to get their personal finances in order. Enjoy.
