Drawing on his years of experience as a pastor, public policy maker, and community leader, DeForest ‘Buster’ Soaries, Jr. shares the four vital keys to debt-free living in this groundbreaking, life-changing new approach.
‘The idea that we would be voluntary slaves is offensive to all of our sensibilities,’ says Soaries, ‘But when we continue to spend what we don’t have, charge what we don’t need, and borrow more than we can repay, then we must call the problem what it is: slavery.’
This is not another financial literacy program assuming that all people need is information. Soaries believes living in debt is an emotional, spiritual, and psychological problem as much as it is an educational and informational one.
