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.

It teaches you that with the right financial strategy and mindset, you can maintain a healthy financial life despite what life throws your way.
