Today, as a nation, we collectively  (notice the sly way I imply our Florida Debt Collection Firm there!.. crafty like a Florida debt collector )  celebrate our first Presidents Birthday, and the spirit of all the presidents that have come since him.

As we look back, and finally forward, there are 3 talking points I’d like to put on the table this Presidents day.  Let’s  not let this pass a simply another empty holiday, but focus instead on the impact these great men have had on the state of our union.

To contract new debts is not the way to pay old ones.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to James Welch, Apr. 7, 1799

avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in time of peace to discharge the debts

GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, Sep. 17, 1796

A people… who are possessed of the spirit of commerce, who see and who will pursue their advantages may achieve almost anything.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Benjamin Harrison
  1. For our industry that amounts to simply, don’t incur debt to pay debt.  Manage your debt wisely.
  2. Don’t get into debt, and when times are good, make paying down your obligations your first priority as a hedge against when times may be lean again.
  3. Commerce fuels our economy, for commerce to work, vendors must be paid what they are owed, and it is incumbent on all of us to do our utmost to produce and contribute all we can to make our lives, and this nation great.
I will end this very brief treatise with

At this auspicious period, the United States came into existence as a Nation, and if their Citizens should not be completely free and happy, the fault will be entirely their own.

George Washington Circular to the States
Date: June 8, 1783
 
Such Harsh words in today’s society where government and big business and barking dogs and  bad Justin Beiber press, are blamed for all the ills of today’s hardships  (yes some backhanded humor is intended on that list!).   It is up to us to be completely Free And Happy.  It is up to us to keep our financial house in order.   Pay our debts, contribute to our society, and enjoy the rewards of this magnificent country.
 
Happy Presidents Day to all of our clients around the country, from your Florida Debt Collector, Collectivity, LLC.
