Brendan Styles - Founder Debt Savvy
I'm Brendan Styles, Founder of Debt Savvy and I thought it was important to share a bit of my journey with you. Because in all honesty, it’s likely a bit like yours...
You see, it wouldn’t be less than 7-years ago that I’d just got home from work and I was sitting at home, with an awful sinking feeling. I was listening to my wife on the phone in the other room and I didn’t know what to tell her, and she didn’t know.
Bills were due, and had no idea how I was going to pay them. I felt like everything was crumbling around me, I couldn’t think straight and felt like an enormous weight was just crushing me. I could feel the pressure of the situation take hold and I wasn’t sure there was going to be a way out. I wanted to bury my head in the sand and just pretend it wasn’t happening but I came to the realisation that it wasn’t going to go away and I needed to ask for help and that it was ok to ask for help.
All I wanted to do was set my family up so that we could have a good life and as the kids grow they would look up to me as someone they wanted to be.
I’m not going to lie, the journey to get to where my family and I are today was a struggle but the thing is we got there as a family and more importantly, stayed together. We had to sacrifice, work hard and pull together but we did it. And when I asked for help, it was like a massive weight shifted.
This maybe not too unlike your current situation and I wanted to let you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s the reason I’ve put this business together with my team. To help more Australian families like yours and mine with ways to get through it all.
Get in touch, even if it’s just for a chat with someone that understands where you’re at or if you’re ready to reach out for help.
