Howard Dvorkin, CPA, is a wealth of financial knowledge. He built a financial empire out of nothing. He started one of the largest credit counseling firms out of an office roughly the size of a closet. He’s helped thousands of people get out of debt. And he’s even written two books:
This is Howard’s first book, written in 2010 during the recovery after the Great Recession. Howard saw that the crash had left millions of Americans financial vulnerable. Debts from medical bills and credit cards to upside down mortgages had wreaked havoc with consumer credit scores. This book helps you work your way out of debt and achieve the credit you always wanted.
Howard published a follow up to Credit Hell in 2013. This new book focuses on energizing the reader to achieve lasting financial stability. If Credit Hell is a financial cure, Power Up is preventative medicine. It teaches you that with the right financial strategy and mindset, you can maintain a healthy financial life despite what life throws your way.
