American Consumer Credit Counseling Explains How to Use Credit Cards Properly

BOSTON (PRWEB) August 14, 2019

Credit cards are an essential financial tool if used responsibly. When used properly, credit cards help consumers build credit, which can help them secure lower rates on loans for big purchases, such as a house or car. When misused, consumers find themselves deep in debt and considered a high risk by creditors. To help, national nonprofit American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) explains six tips for using a credit card correctly.

“Whether you’re just starting and trying to build credit or you hit a bump in the road and are trying to rebuild your credit, it is important to know how to use credit properly,” said Steve Trumble, President and CEO of American Consumer Credit Counseling. "By practicing good habits, such as paying your bill in full each month and keeping purchases low, you can enjoy the benefits of a credit card rather than falling victim to it.”

According to WalletHub’s most recent credit card debt study, the total outstanding credit card debt in the US is $1.034 trillion. The average American household holds $8,788 in credit card debt. Of those with debt, 41 percent say they will be able to pay it off in less than a year, followed by 26 percent in one to two years, 24 percent in more than two years and nine percent who are unsure when they will be able to pay it off.

ACCC Explains six credit cards tips consumers should follow.

1. Timely Payments Every Month- Consumers who pay credit cards on time can avoid late fees and damage to their credit scores. It is also important to pay these bills in full, as interest rate charges can add up quickly.

2. Track Spending- Consumers who track spending are more likely to stick to their budget while also keeping an eye on possible fraud.

3. Try to Keep Purchases Low- It is suggested that consumers spend 30 percent or less of their credit card limit at any given time.

4. Use Rewards Cards- Consumers should consider getting a rewards credit card so they can get cash back on everyday purchases, such as going to the grocery store or putting gas in the car. Some rewards cards can earn consumers thousands of dollars in cash back or travel points. Though there are advantages of rewards, don’t get fooled into thinking rewards are worth over utilization. If you can’t pay off your charges monthly, then those rewards can add up to the interest you are paying on an outstanding balance.

5. Advance Warning Before Travel- Using a credit card in a new location is a huge red flag for fraud. Consumers who give notice to their bank before travel avoid declined transactions and a call to the issuer.

6. Be Disciplined – It is important for consumers to tell themselves “no” when they want to make a purchase with their credit card that they can’t actually afford. Consumers should start with one credit card at first so they can learn how to manage their payments.

Linda Mack of Mack International participated as a panelist for the Global Family Office Conference held in London, UK, June 12-13, 2019.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 12, 2019

The Global Family Office Conference held its sixth annual summit in London, June 2019. The agenda, set by family offices internationally and the conference’s Advisory Board included topics concerning Global Trends, Investments, Succession Planning, and Next Generation Interviewing. Linda Mack participated as a panelist during a session entitled, “What Factors Make a Family Office Successful?” She was joined by Marta Albert, Principal, RTH Investments and QG Family Office; Patricia Armstrong, Senior Director, Institute for Family Culture, Abbot Downing; Richard Azarnia, Principal, Single Family Office; and Jeremy Green, Team Head, UK, Agreus Group. The panel was chaired by Ian Morley, Chairman, Wentworth Hall Family Office. Topics explored during the session included the Family Office’s Mission, People as a Factor, Emotional Intelligence, Family Dynamics and the Role of Philanthropy.

Linda talked about the importance of a family developing a clearly defined mission, that will act as a living document serving the family through generational transitions. “The decisions made in building a Family Office must be in alignment with the family’s long-term vision. “Their mission is the expression of shared family values and objectives and the legacy they want to create. While the global mission doesn’t change over time, it needs to evolve to engage rising generations,” said Linda.

Key considerations surrounding “the people factor” was an important part of the panel discussion–and a subject upon which Linda speaks internationally. Best practices in recruiting, motivating and retaining leadership, succession and transition, culture fit, and governance were explored. Linda offered the following insight. “You need an effective process to define, identify, recruit and assess the right leadership talent. Defining the position and requisite skills and experience to be successful in the role is only the starting point. Defining the personal characteristics and attributes needed to ensure a good “culture fit” with the family are also essential as part of this process. Since most families hope to retain executive leadership for 15 years or more, getting “culture fit” right is critical for success and effectiveness. Once a hiring decision is made, it is also very important to have a strategy for on-boarding and planning for the individual’s success. Giving the new leader a clearly defined mandate, the resources needed to accomplish it, authority commensurate with accountability, and a competitive compensation package aligned with the family’s goals are critical.”

The importance of emotional intelligence was another interesting part of the panel’s dialogue. Understanding the psychology behind inter-generational relations and its role in sustaining the future of a family office were part of the conversation. Linda described the critical nature of emotional IQ as it pertained to leadership. “A leader in a Family Office must have very high EQ. Empathy, resilience, inclusiveness, collaboration and exceptional communication and facilitation skills are all important in fostering healthy family dynamics. Approachability and strong listening skills help promote harmony and bring people together.”

According to Linda, the panel shared valuable perspectives and the audience was highly engaged. “Learning from the insights and personal experiences of those who have helped families build successful family offices is always a topic of great interest.”
