So, how are your New Year’s resolutions to get happy and healthy coming along? For Gary Ryan Blair—aka the GoalsGuy—your resolutions are really working out.

Blair is the mastermind behind GotResolutions.com, which encourages people to make every choice count. (And to make one of those choices buying a GoalsGuy video seminar, of course.)

Of the site’s 38,000 visitors in 2009, debt relief is one of the trendiest resolutions. Blair says that for the first time in his self-help career, he’s guiding more people trying to lose debt than lose weight.

Blair’s advice? Don’t be afraid to confront the “good, bad, and ugly truths” of these tough times. Such counsel may seem crucial for some. But be forewarned—the program costs $59.95.
