From this parable of the prodigal debtor come lessons of financial transformation and salvation. By turns serious and spunky, the versatile actress Leslie Bellair gives a spirited performance in financial writer and publisher Tad Crawford’s tale of Iris Cassidy, a girl next door - if she happened to have worked herself into an impoverished state at the age of 23. Cassidy is fortunate to gain the acquaintance of Saidah Samuels, a financial sage who shares with her - and through her all of us - the steps needed to secure financial independence for the remainder of what can be a prosperous and unencumbered-by-debt happy life.
The Money Mentor provides debtors and those with risky financial habits with both a first-aid kit and long-term therapy to achieve financial freedom.
You don't have to be a 23-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 Money Mentor provides - and 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 listeners 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.
I do not believe I am unique when I admit that the story has resonated several times in my life. I kinda that it ended with a work in process at the end of the book instead of showing what for many would unrealistic expectations
I am really grateful for this novel. I listened to it at a crucial point in my life. It helped me so much! I recommend it to anyone in debt or wanting to learn about finances more. It's a novel, just so you know.
