In the past, Americans were taught to avoid debt. Now, we are persuaded to embrace it. The process starts early--high school students receive credit card solicitations although their only income may be from babysitting or mowing the neighbor's lawn. We take on debt without realizing that doing so subjects us to financial servitude--a form of slavery--in which our bills determine when and how much we work, often at jobs we don't even like.
The result? U.S. consumer debt recently hit an all-time high of $2.35 trillion and millions of Americans are struggling to make ends meet.
Debt is Slavery offers hope. The book takes a unique approach to personal finance by focusing on changing the way people think about money. The author uses his personal triumph over paralyzing debt to illustrate 10 lessons that will transform the reader's relationship with money so they too can pay off their debt, reclaim their freedom, and lead more fulfilling and prosperous lives.
Michael Mihalik accumulated a huge amount of debt by using credit cards to finance a lifestyle he couldn't afford. He struggled with debt for years before discovering that before he could change how he handled his finances, he had to change the way he thought about money.
He created 10 ideas and techniques that literally transformed his life. Today, he is debt-free and financially secure. His book, Debt is Slavery, teaches others how to use the same ideas and methods to gain control of their finances, pay off their debt, and experience more fulfilling lives free from the shackles of debt.
