I have had the opportunity to observe the collection industry for some 22 years. Over that period I have seen the misery visited upon people struggling with unsecured consumer debt. Money problems are a major contributor to the breakdown of relationships and marriages. Furthermore, people experiencing debt problems might find that it casts a long shadow over not only their psychological well-being but also their performance in the workplace.
I would like to do something meaningful to reduce this suffering. Knowledge is power and I want to empower people who are struggling with debt. That is why I am sitting at my computer today writing this blog.
One person can make the world a better place. One person, working together with others, can accomplish great things.
Every organization has a mission regardless of whether or not it is reduced to writing.
At Comprehensive Debt Solutions Inc. our mission is to help Canadians experiencing problems with unsecured consumer debt.
We strive to accomplish this through the following:
Providing information which could be extremely useful to people struggling with debt
By providing one-on-consultations with individuals
Serving as an advocate for Canadian consumers experiencing debt problems
By highlighting the activities of entities which are taking advantage of Canadian consumers
Some of the people reading this blog post might be very supportive of the efforts of Comprehensive Debt Solutions Inc. A number of you might have read my book The Wolf At The Door: What To Do When Collection Agencies Come Calling (2010), published by McClelland & Stewart. This book might have been of some assistance to you with your debt situation.
Comprehensive Debt Solutions Inc. began operations in February of 2015. Since that time a number of people have come forward and volunteered to assist us with our work. Many of these people, for a variety of reasons, have asked to remain anonymous.
