Life & Debt: A Fresh Approach to Achieving Financial Wellness

Adult; Business & Personal Finance; (Market)

LIFE & DEBT is not your typical “get debt free” book. It’s a fun, easy to read guide filled with useful tips about managing debt, confronting the fear of budgeting, and the importance of knowing your credit history and score. LIFE & DEBT also provides true stories of people from different socioeconomic backgrounds, who for one reason or another found themselves deep in debt and without a clue on how to remedy their situation. After meeting Tayne, she assured them they were not unique. She tells her clients there is no embarrassment to being in debt, and teaches them how to learn to love and embrace their debt because, in today’s world, it’s practically impossible to be debt free. LIFE & DEBT is groundbreaking in that it teaches people – young, old, retired, divorced, college students, grads, and parents – to live with and take on debt that makes sense for your life. The key lesson from the book is that the first steps of being able to properly manage your debt is to learn to love it.
Reviews
This helpful debut by debt-resolution attorney Tayne, written in a straightforward, easily understandable, and nonjudgmental style, is a must-read for anyone struggling with debt or financial management. Using accessible language and a no-nonsense approach, Tayne starts by defining good and bad debt, differentiating between various types of debt, and demystifing terms such as secured and unsecured. She then provides a clear explanation of how to make a budget and why debt must fit into it. Throughout the text, Tayne emphasizes that there is no shame in finding oneself in a difficult situation, providing reassuring, factual tips on reducing expenses, getting back on track, and restoring good credit. She punctuates her advice with short “Life and Debt” tips (“All debt is good debt until it becomes unmanageable”; “Your life goals and finances must run on parallel tracks”) and personal stories of individuals she has guided through debt reduction, from a woman who had 10 store credit cards to a man who treated his 401(k) “like an ATM.” This is a useful, nonthreatening guide for anyone needing assistance with overall financial management.
