If you think you’re the only person who has ever messed up with credit cards, you can now let out a big sigh of relief. In my new book, I reveal the sordid details of my credit card addiction, my plunge into credit card debt, and how I finally came out on top.
But it’s not just a tell-all about the dumb things I did. Oh, I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy some of my stories, and maybe you’ll even identify with a few of the situations I got myself into. There’s greed, expensive shoes, power suits, an unpleasant encounter with a mailman, a cruise to Mexico, and debt collectors.
What’s not to love about all that? Oh, and there’s also a fun Credit Card Personality Quiz, which will help you pick out the type of credit card that suits your lifestyle. One of the keys to profiting from credit cards is to make the right choice.
Aside from the entertainment factor, I also give you easy-to-follow advice so you never have to make the same mistakes I did. And if you’ve already made a lot of mistakes, you can recover. You really can. It isn’t easy, but with the knowledge you’ll gain from my book, you’ll be able to boost your credit score and rebuild your credit.
I offer seven ways to use a credit card to rebuild your credit. If you aren’t able to qualify for a credit card, I’ve got some helpful–and most importantly, actionable–advice for that, too.
And for those of you who are in good shape with your credit cards, but you want to take it to a higher level, I’ve got you covered. You’ll learn how to save big bucks on everyday expenses and travel for free. I’ll also show you how to do what I call “Extreme Credit,” which involves credit card arbitrage and earning bundles from sign-up bonuses.
Confessions of a Credit Junkie is available on Amazon and in major bookstores. Here’s the Amazon link because I know you can’t wait to buy it: Confessions of a Credit Junkie: Everything You Need to Know to Avoid the Mistakes I Made.
By the way, I’m very honored to say that the Foreword is written by Liz Weston, the renowned best-selling author of many personal finance books, including The 10 Commandments of Money.
I’ve also written two other books:
I’m the co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Person-to-Person Lending (Alpha Books/Penguin) and you can find it at major bookstores and on Amazon. This book helps you figure out the ever-evolving social lending industry.
Having problems getting a loan in this economy? Then social lending might be an option for you. If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and you’re looking for an investment, then consider becoming a lender. It’s really a good feeling to invest your money and know you’re helping someone in a big way.
I’ll be the first to admit, though, that a lot has changed since I wrote the book. But you’ll still find some useful tips that will help you market yourself (if you’re a borrower) and make smart choices (if you’re a lender).
Hey, you’ll find that I’m always honest with consumers. Even when it affects my bottom line!
