Black Enterprise Online Love & Money Columnist Issues Debt Challenge to Americans

Share Article’s Love & Money Columnist Kenny Pugh Launches $250MM Debt Challenge

Love and Money Coach Kenny Pugh (, HLN) is embarking upon the most rewarding time in his career as a financial services executive touting over 16 years of experience serving Fortune 100 companies as well as being a highly sought-after relationship strategist by way of his debut title. A true believer that it’s possible to have it all, as long as your house is in order, Pugh is launching the $250MM Debt Challenge that will mobilize thousands of people in an effort to pay off $250 Million in consumer debt beginning on January 1, 2014.

A huge proponent of marriage and monogamy, Pugh suggests one of the main reasons marriage is on the decline and divorce on the rise is because people lack the skills necessary to build a foundation conducive to creating a successful partnership and one of the key areas affecting this is money - or lack thereof. Debt, it turns out, is a leading cause of family strife during the first few years of marriage, according to Creighton University's Center for Marriage and Family.

With the economy in a perpetual fits-and-starts mode the past 7 years, Pugh has seen his share of financial trainwrecks wreaking many a marriage and way too many singles who actually desire partnership in a bleak but sure future. He is committed to helping his clients not only achieve the American dream but build a legacy, strong families and relationships all with a smile on their faces, “Because they are enjoying life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!”, says Pugh.

Overcoming his own personal financial crisis when he lost over $100k in investments during the real estate market crash, he was faced with the daunting task of rebuilding his own personal credit and savings. Kenny was able to reduce more than $80k in debt in less than 3 years using tried and true methods such as changing his mindset, creating a strict budget, eliminating loose spending habits and applying the financial management principles he acquired over the past 16 years as a financial service executive - the same tools he will teach each participant in the $250MM Debt Challenge.

As a consultant, Kenny has worked with companies such as Accenture, Chase Bank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, SunTrust Bank,, Microsoft HomeAdvisor, Wachovia, Washington Mutual & AT&T managing operational budgets over $200MM and helping individuals re-establish their credit and build wealth.
