Hi there! I am Michael, and I founded Consumer Recovery Network along with 2 friends and dedicated debt coaches, Dean and Dayna, back in 2004. I want to share more about the unique approach to coaching and helping people through debt and credit problems we set out with back then, and that continues today.
Credible debt coaching, where you get expert guidance in order to navigate a tough financial patch, was not commonly available to people when we started CRN and launched this site. There was only one other operation doing the stuff we envisioned at the time (we did not know the other guy then, but he later became, and remains, a good friend and associate).
More than a decade later there is still a terrible lack of experts available to coach people through unfamiliar territory when negotiating with banks and debt collectors (of all variety and size). And there is no other company that offers DIY debt relief education and coaching while also providing expert debt negotiation services to those who want or need it.
The intentions of CRN, and this website, can be best spelled out like this… we figure that if you knew what we know about resolving debt and credit challenges, you could solve your problems yourself and save a bunch of money in fees (some debt relief companies charge a lot).
This simple concept is the foundation of what we do daily with site visitors; how we handle free telephone consults; and the one on one debt coaching we do with customers.
We are, in a word, fantabulastic at delivering on our intent!
What we do?
More often than not this site is designed to help people resolve unpaid debts. We can help you with a single account, or a record setting 49 accounts, and at every stage of collection.
CRN is set up to take people with debt and credit problems from a place of “what the?”… to a place of confidence and empowerment through information and implementation. This is accomplished through our publishing effort, one on one consults, coaching, and hands on negotiations. This site empowers thousands of people every day to tackle debt and credit challenges.
You get to interact with experienced debt and credit experts for free on this site. All you have to do is participate in the comments (you can be anonymous).
You can contact a debt and credit pro and consult for free too. Call into the free hot line at 800-939-8357, and consult with a professional about debt consolidation (option 1), debt settlement (option 2 – connects to me), bankruptcy (option 3), and student loan issues (option 4).
Get coaching and expert help with your debt.
We still do offer one on one assistance where you can be coached through resolving your debt privately, and work one on one with the same coach from start to finish. Our debt coaching is one of a kind, highly effective, and provides you an opportunity to maximize your savings when negotiating debts with banks and collection agencies.
There are also people in the network that offer affordable help where we can negotiate your debts if you choose not to. Our fees are typically half or less the cost of industry standards.
I have personally helped thousands of people to overcome mountains of debt, and to achieve financial goals. I look forward to exchanging comments with you here on the site, and to speaking with you should you request a consult.
Cheers to your success – Michael
