You don't have to be a twenty-three year old dancer with no savings to end up with the excruciating debts young Iris is confronted with in this latest work by financial and legal advisor Tad Crawford. Every year, thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds overtax their bank accounts and credit cards and are left with the tricky task of pulling themselves out of their financial chaos. Rarely can they receive such high-quality financial and moral support as the The Money Mentor providesand certainly not in the guise of an entertaining, up-beat novel!
As the author tells the story of the recovering debtor Iris, he walks his readers through all the stages of money management, from the painful assessment of assets and debts to increasing one's income and starting to save. Choosing a sympathetic "girl-from-next-door" as protagonist, The Money Mentor offers people in financial trouble what they lack most of all: the ability to look at themselves from a healthy distance and realize that there is a way out of their trouble.
