Many times, a debtor is not able to pay the complete amount because of one reason or another. There might be some unseen circumstances such as illness, loss of job, or death of loved ones. No one can predict these circumstances and face hard times. The banks and lending companies want their payments on time and do not spare their lenders. Various debt settlement companies assist people who cannot pay the full amount. They assess your financial standing and work with the lending company to settle an amount, which you can easily pay. 

When You Need to Contact Debt Settlement Companies

You might feel stressed because creditors are calling you for payments on a regular basis and you are getting calls from the recovery agents. Sometimes, these people knock at your doors at odd hours asking for money. It will leave you embarrassed in front of your family and neighborhood. To deal with such a situation, it is strongly recommended to get in touch with a debt settlement company that can help you get out of this situation.

Affecting the Credit Scores 

Not many people are aware of the fact that debt settlement may leave a black dot on their credit score. When you pay off to your lending bank, it will be written as settled and the information can be shared with other financial bodies. Next time, when you apply for any type of loan, your application will straightaway be rejected.  There is no way that you can get any financial assistance from banks and lending institutions.

You may have to work hard for improving your credit scores and it will take years to do so. Moreover, if you apply for a credit card, you will not get it because no bank offers these cards to people with a bad credit score. That’s why it is suggested to keep all these factors in mind before you think about debt settlement. You should be familiar with the dangers of debt settlement in Orlando before making the final decision.

If you are in need, it is suggested to seek financial help from friends and relatives who can lend you money to pay off your debt rather than getting in touch with debt settlement. This way, you will not have any financial obligations and your credit score would be unaffected. You should assess all your options and make the right step to get rid of financial difficulties.

This Canadian Entrepreneur Tells Us The Highs and Lows of Running A Successful Hemp Company

East of Toronto lies a Canadian hemp company called The Hemp Spot which offers over fifty plus products.

CEO and founder, Jacob Moore started the company in 2018. Moore’s interest in hemp began when he was looking for a healthier protein product that would help with recovery and pain remedy. Moore has an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis, which can cause some of the small bones in someone’s spine (vertebrae) to fuse. This can cause less flexibility and can result in someone having a hunched posture.

His discovery of hemp protein helped with the pain however, he realized there were not a lot of Canadian hemp products readily available. Knowing there might be others who were also suffering from joint pains or who were looking for safer, healthier options to help with recovery, Moore created The Hemp Spot.

“We are your local one-stop-shop for all things Canadian hemp. We have a variety of Canadian hemp products supplied by various Canadian hemp farmers and small Canadian hemp businesses,” said Moore.

Even though Moore found a natural product that would help many Canadians, he faced

numerous obstacles to get his business started. Banks gave Moore a hard time because of the misconceptions and stigmas surrounding hemp. Banks deemed hemp as marijuana. Although growing industrial hemp has been legal since 1998.

“When hemp was grouped in with marijuana it was declared an illegal substance. Slowly people began to ignore the benefits for the environment and for themselves. Till this day many people believe hemp is marijuana and has a high amount of THC,” said Moore.

To clarify, hemp comes from the same species of plant as cannabis however, it has lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compared to cannabis. The first license to grow industrial hemp for commercial purposes in Canada was issued in May 1998. Unlike its sister plant (cannabis) hemp takes around 90-120 days to grow, compared to four to eight months growth time for cannabis.

Moore continues to have problems advertising his company online because social media platforms such as Facebook bundle hemp with marijuana under their advertising regulations. As of 2019, Facebook has made some adjustments to their advertisement laws, which allows hemp companies in the U.S. to promote their businesses, as long as they’re promoting non-ingestible hemp.

“It may say hemp companies can advertise on Facebook/social media but hemp companies (in Canada) like myself are not allowed to promote, even when we try to promote our Hemp Face cloths. I’ve been flagged for selling illegal substances. I wish we were allowed to advertise however, we’re not able to,” said Moore.

Similar to advertising companies, Moore had to prove to banks that hemp was not a marijuana product. Nonetheless, Moore’s resilient spirit has allowed him to mount a thriving business and also to educate the public.

His company has helped many Canadian hemp farmers. Hemp expels four times more carbon dioxide than trees, and helps reduce greenhouse gases in the air. “We want everyone to experience hemp for all that it is; to utilize it as a food supplement, to clothe ourselves, to help transportation grow, and to help shelter families,” said Moore.
