In a society where it is often easier to discuss sex than money, many of us have hidden issues about personal finances. But when fending off bill collectors, begging for salary advances, or borrowing from relatives becomes a way of life, unresolved money problems can lead to enormous stress and destroy relationships, careers, and lives. Do you recognize yourself or someone you love in any of these descriptions?
THE COMPULSIVE SPENDER
Do you buy things and hide them?
THE BIG DEAL CHASER
Do you refuse to watch your money because one big deal is going to make everything all right?
THE MAINTENANCE MONEY DRUNK

Through their highly effective seminars, Mark Bryan and Julia Cameron have helped many people free themselves from the painful cycle of acting out with money.

The program teaches new, more constructive habits to anyone who has ever had a problem with money.
