The Fresh Start for Life Podcast

Attorney Don Golden is Board Certified in Consumer Bankruptcy by the American Board of Certification. Over the last 22 years he has helped over 4,000 families discharge more than $80,000,000 in debt and get a Fresh Start.

However, over the last few years he has sensed that he was being called to do more. He decided that he not only wanted to help consumers discharge their debt, he also wanted to help them rebuild their financial lives after bankruptcy.

That’s why he founded Fresh Start For Life and the Fresh Start For Life Podcast.

This show will help you get out of debt and start living the financial life of your dreams. We teach consumers how to navigate debt issues, rebuild credit, budget, save for retirement, and take control of their lives with a positive mental attitude.

But you don’t have to have filed bankruptcy to listen to the show. There’s plenty of great content for anyone who is looking for information to help them live a better financial life.
