Dump It! 52 Easy Ways You Can Dump a Lifetime of Credit Card Debt and Grow Your Wealth Instead
By Randall Blaum and David Scotland (2008)
The average American family has close to $10,000 of credit card debt; according to financial experts, many of them are in a revolving debt cycle from which they will never escape. Thats why Randall Blaum set out to create Dump It!, a complete do-it-yourself debt-reduction program that includes DVD, audios, book and workbook.
The program begins by helping you understand why credit card debt is rampant (its not all your fault) and what the credit card companies dont want you to know. Next, it teaches you about validating your debt, minimum debt load, fair debt collection, credit counseling and debt managing plans. The final chapters warn against common credit myths, fraud and scams, and explain how to shop for a loan, lower your interest rates and raise your credit score.
Randall Blaum has been called the peoples teacher of credit card debt reduction and financial literacy. Having been in over $50,000 of credit card debt himself, he lays out the methods that helped him get off the debt-repayment treadmill for good. Dump It! is also based on his three years of in-depth research into the murky world of credit card companies and credit card debt during the production of the movie U R Pre-Approved (see article p. 42).

Do you own a bible? Most families in the Western world do. Does anyone read it cover to cover? Most people dont.

The Prosperity Bible features nineteen classics by leading teachers and thinkers from a variety of backgrounds, covering a vast range of topics from religion, philosophy and politics to finance and self-help. These are the writers who created the idea of a mental formula for success in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and they have one key thing in common: a commitment to helping others understand the universal laws of money and how to let it flow. This 1,280-page volume is a resource to treasure and return to again and again for reminders, advice, know-how and inspiration.
