Zoomstart – Get Out of Debt, Part 1: Stop the Bleeding
I have always appreciated Shane at Zoomstart for being not only very knowledgeable, but also a superb writer on a number of topics related to business and finance.

  1. Hey Nate,

    Glad you liked the series. I hope that few people need it, but it’s there for those who do.

    Had a quick look at Darren’s new site design – in a word, awesome. I have to go back and spend some more time touring around it.

  2. Funny stuff! Really great post, I just started highlighting posts on my blog today, now I see in your post a better way to do it. Great info, Thanks:)
