Debt-Free Forever

Introduction—Get Ready to Change

Imagine waking up in the morning and knowing that no matter what happens today, you can cope. Imagine that you've got enough money to take care of the expenses that need to be paid regularly and to have some fun too. Imagine the sense of peace that comes from knowing you're in control of your life.

If you've been frantically trying to cover your butt because there just never seems to be enough money, I can help you. If you're up to your eyeballs in debt and can't even imagine being debt-free, I can help you. If you're at your wits' end because you've made a huge mess and don't have a clue how to fix it, I can help you.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that if you're reading this book, you've made a mess of your money. Hey, it happens. Staying mired in misery is one option. Pulling up your socks, dusting off your britches, and getting to work to dig yourself out is another. You can wallow or you can work hard. You can whine or you can make your life what you really want it to be. You're the person who gets to decide whether you're happy listening to Mother Regret whispering about all the mistakes you've made or whether you're done with the past and are ready to focus on creating the life you want today!

I've been working with people for years, showing them how to fix what's broke and have a life too. I believe you can have anything you want if you're willing to do what it takes to create it-and I can help you figure out exactly what you want and how to get it!
