Neile Simon, a Certified Credit Counselor with Christian Credit Counselors, explains how to get started paying down high-interest debt, the signs that credit cards are out of control, and how CCC can help. Rob also answers listener questions about investing, withdrawing assets from an elderly parent on Medicaid, and building a positive credit history.
