I have another thread explaining why, but I need credit/financial counseling, someone who works with small businesses (mainly) but also personal finances.


I've never done this before and don't know what to look for in a good agency, or even how to find one.

I've read your other post and my first reaction is don't do it. You have to be very careful, because there are a lot of credit counseling agencies that are scams. Furthermore, from what I have been told (I don't know if it's 100% true) but they actually do more harm than good.


I would check your local credit unions as a good place to start, though. My credit union has a company they refer people to.

Havent read your other post, but Iirc you should start with 'consumer credit counseling service' in your area. They are a not for profit service.
