Everything you know about money is wrong!

In his thirty-year career, bankruptcy trustee Doug Hoyes has watched countless intelligent, well meaning people let their emotions get the better of them as they follow conventional financial wisdom and get into serious money trouble.

Straight Talk On Your Money exposes some of the biggest money myths and traps that we accept as financial truths:
  • why a good credit score may be detrimental to your financial well-being
  • why a house is not an investment
  • why you should never pay a collection agent
  • why budgeting is a waste of time - and much more
Straight Talk On Your Money cuts through the biggest myths about money and the hype of the financial industry to give you a fresh perspective, the facts you need to know, and practical advice to help you prevent financial problems before they happen.

With a seasoned expert to point you in the right direction - someone who's seen thousands of people in financial crisis, and helped them out of it - you can make informed decisions, improve your financial health, and live a debt-free, stress-free life.
