Full chapter from my book: Optimize Your Credit Cards

When I wrote my first book, we spent about a month trying to convince the publisher to send us a PDF OF OUR OWN BOOK SO WE COULD TRY TO MARKET IT. They were afraid that it would leak and magically kill sales. Are you kidding me?
For my new book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich (coming out in 6 days!!!!!), I asked my publisher once and they sent over ALL the PDFs. God I love them.
However, I don’t think they know what I was planning to do with them. I just kept whispering words like “wikis…Twitter…web 2.0.” They seemed to like that a lot.
So instead of trying to sell you guys on a bunch of promises, I’m figured you’d just want to see a few meaty chapters from the book.
No prob. Today, I’ll show you the FULL Chapter 1, “Optimize Your Credit Cards,” where you’ll see things like:
- Page 24: Call script to use if you miss a payment
- Page 34: People who waste time chasing bank interest rates
- Page 35: Section on student/CC debt
The chapter also includes strategies to beat credit cards by (1) picking the right card and (2) negotiating if they try to screw you, how-to tactics for paying off debt, and my most hated pet peeve of all: Why most people focus on minutiae like saving $3 on lattes, but forget *big wins* like optimizing their credit. (See page 17 for an example of how your credit will save you hundreds of thousands of dollars — more than any amount of lattes.)
I’ll let the work speak for itself. Chapter 1 starts on page 13 of the PDF attachment.
