Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Business ethics & social responsibility

The personal finance columnist for The Washington Post shows readers how they can go from being a hot mess to a financial success.

Nancy Trejos was supposed to be an expert on handling her money - after all, she's the personal finance columnist for The Washington Post. But a year ago, she found herself in her own dire financial straits. Faced with a mountain of bills, debt and no way to pay her rent, she was forced to call her parents to ask them for a loan. That night was a wake-up call - she vowed to get herself out of debt and into financial solvency. In this book she takes readers along on her journey. She meets with a financial planner and a therapist to deal with all the issues young people face today - from credit card debt and student loans, to impulse buying and emotional spending, to the cost of a social life, to buying a house with someone during a possibly impermanent relationship and more. She learns what causes these problems in herself, how she can fix them and how she can pass that advice on to other people going through the same thing. She also shows readers how they can address these problems without completely giving up their lives - no 'give up your latte a day' advice here! Her personal voice as well as her experiences that everyone can relate to, will lead readers to relatively painless financial security.
