NOT ANOTHER MONEY STATISTICLessons We Wish We Learned in High School
In November 2017, the US consumer debt total rose to $3.927 trillion
73% of Americans will die with consumer debt
Yes, these statistics are TERRIFYING. We don’t want YOU to become another money statistic. Did you know most high schools do not teach personal finance? We learn calculus and the periodic table but do not learn how to stay out of debt and how to create a budget.
You might be thinking, if I am in high school I don’t need to worry about money yet. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The earlier you start thinking about your finances and preparing, the better off you will be. It doesn’t matter if you were prom king/queen or if you were the most popular guy/girl in school, that won’t help you stay out of debt.
There are a million money books out there so why did we write one? Well many of them are geared toward fixing your money mistakes. We don’t want to just help fix your money mistakes, we want to prevent them.
What Topics Are Covered?
This book has 12 chapters filled with information, personal stories, and resources to help you stay out of debt, build wealth, and prepare for your future. At the end of the book there is a resource section that compiles all of the resources we mentioned in the book.
We promise we kept each chapter short, sweet, and to the point.

Who Is This Book For?
Who Are The Authors?
We met at the University of South Carolina in 2009 and instantly became BFF. Shelly is the adventurous one and Alli is more Type A, but we complement each other pretty well. We have traveled the world together, started blogs together, and wrote our first book together.
Alli works for a Fortune 500 company and is pursuing her MBA in Finance. She runs the blog financiALLI focused and absolutely loves everything personal finance related. She is obsessed with the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) and studied abroad in China and Europe.
Shelly is a school social worker and has her Masters in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. She runs the blog The Eclectic Voyager and has been to 5 continents and over 15 countries. She is a certified scuba diver and has swam with 5 types of sharks.
We wrote this book together because we have different stories and opinions but the one thing we have in common is we want YOU to stay out of debt and understand your finances.
