If you’re losing sleep over money matters, being blinded by stress can sometimes mean you miss the most obvious solutions to your troubles. If you’re worried you might be that person, then take our advice and double-check you’re not missing out on implementing a simple solution to your financial problems.

My House Won’t Sell

So, your house has been on the market for months, maybe even years, and it’s stressing you out to no end. Your estate agent is ‘doing their best’, but you’re not seeing results. Have you considered taking matters into your own hands? Try using your own social media channels to market your property, and ask friends to share the link to your home’s online listing with their friends and followers. If you don’t know where to start, check out this guide to marketing your property via social media.

Another option is to go for a quick sell, but only consider this if you’re really desperate, as you might end up getting less cash for your home than if you were to persevere with selling through an estate agent.

I Can’t Secure a Job Interview

Unemployment can be one of the most depressing and demoralizing things you can go through. If you have the right skills and are going for the right jobs, there’s nothing worse than never hearing back from a position you spent hours applying for. A simple solution is to make your CV stand out. It’s a risk, as some employers don’t favor unusual layouts and color schemes, but it’s worth a shot if you never normally get a response anyway. Experiment with color and design, but keep things professional looking. Check out these amazing examples for some inspiration.

My Debts are Crushing Me

Everybody falls into debt at some point in their lifetime, but if yours is keeping you up at night, then you need to take action. If you think you’ve tried everything, how about the simplest, most obvious solution? Pay it off fair and square. Cut back on everything; no eating out, no new clothes and no unnecessary expenditure until it’s gone. You might think that sounds like a miserable existence, but if your debts are really crushing you, the chances are you won’t feel any worse than you do currently.
