Use Mutual Funds For Debt?

Suzanne and her husband should cash out out their mutual funds to pay off their debt, as long they're not in retirement savings.

QUESTION: Suzanne asks if she and her husband should cash out mutual funds to pay off their debt.

ANSWER: Look at it this way: if you have consumer or house debt, you’ve borrowed money in order to invest.  That doesn’t make any sense.  If the mutual funds are not in a retirement account, cash some out and pay off your debts.  Then get on a budget and stop over-spending.  You have to change your habits if you’re going to get on a wealth-building course.  When you have changed your habits and don’t have any payments, you’ll be able to invest and build wealth effectively.
