In the context of his monthly commentary on the Argent channel, Trustee Partner and Financial Recovery Advisor Eric Lebel emphasizes the importance of breaking taboos when you have financial problems.
The CROP survey on Quebecers and personal finances, Les Québécois et les finances personnelles, commissioned by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton for the awareness campaign “Ne perdez pas vos moyens”, shows that one out of two Quebecers is living with a difficult financial situation and that the same proportion say they are uncomfortable talking about it to the people around them. One out of ten would even be afraid to discuss it with his or her spouse.
But according to Eric Lebel, daring to talk about the situation is the first step for getting out of it. The expert recommends, above all, that people not isolate themselves and that they seek help. He also offers other advice, which you can find in the May 8, 2015 interview with host Pierre Paquin.
