So Money - Episode 114

Beverly Harzog

Author of "The Debt Escape Plan"

I’m excited to welcome today’s guest. Beverly Harzog is a nationally recognized credit card expert, consumer advocate and former CPA. She is also the author of The Debt Escape Plan and three other highly-acclaimed books. She has extensive media experience and is frequently invited to speak at major events and conferences. In addition, she creates custom content for credit-related websites, serves as an expert witness for legal firms, and assists marketing research firms looking for insights about consumer behavior. More importantly, she knows what it’s like being in thousand dollars’ worth of debt and what it takes to get out of it!

Three takeaways from our interview:

— How Beverly racked up $20,000 in credit card debt and escaped it herself in just 2 years

— How she scored her first publishing deal.

— How a lack of self-confidence at one point in her life led her to irrational spending.
