trying to help parents

Anybody on here had experience with this?


Mine is simple but I thought maybe it would be interesting to here other stories you guys have had before.


So, my situation, my mom has a card with a 10k limit and $2,600 usage

basically she hates it and the interest is hurting her as she can only afford to pay a little above minimum

What can I do to talk her into a good BT card, Ive explained all the benefits but need to choose "the right one" so to speak.

Chase Slate is the best BT card out there.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
