***SECOND EDITION***This book IS about negotiating forgiveness for your credit card debt by writing your creditor one simple negotiation letter and what to do if the creditor refuses to negotiate. If you owe money on your credit cards and cannot make payments anymore because of financial difficulty, this book is for you. I owed over $100,000 in credit card debt and the debt was hurting my life. I had trouble sleeping at night thinking how long my ever-increasing debt would continue to gnaw at me. Even if I could afford to make the minimum payments and do not borrow anymore, with interest of 25% APR, I will still owe a lot of money after many years of making only minimum payments. The interest alone would total close to $100,000. It took a year of trial and error, hours on the phone and writing meaningless letters most of which I copied from the internet before I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. None of the free advice and letters in the internet worked because the truth is I was not insolvent. I did not qualify for bankruptcy protection. I could have paid my credit card debt by liquidating my assets, selling my house, but that would have been devastating for my family. I kept on thinking of a way for my creditors to reduce my debt. I finally came up with The Letter that uniformly worked in negotiating down my debt. After mailing The Letter to my creditors, I received a reply from one of them offering to accept 50% of what I owed as full payment of my debt. I countered with 5%. We finally agreed on 10% of the original amount as full and final settlement of my balance. Considering I had not paid them for a year, I accumulated a little cash, so I was happy to grab the offer and pay the 10%. I had five credit cards with large balances and The Letter worked satisfactorily on four of the accounts. I settled the 4 accounts for between 5% and 15%. The last hold-out, surprisingly the account with the smallest balance at $13,000 chose to take me to arbitration. This negotiation-resistant creditor perceived that they might collect more money from me that way but they were wrong. I was surprised that not one of the 4 creditors even referred to the contents of The Letter or attempted to verify what I had written in the letter. The Letter aims to convey this message: "Take my final settlement offer or sue me. But if you sue me, you will lose". Ken Clark, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Out of Debt: "So many people are trying to get their balances reduced, you call and try to negotiate a balance, and it's 'Get in line.'" The card company's attitude may be, "Yeah, you and everybody else"". My Comment – That’s because you called to negotiate instead of sending them The Letter shown towards the end of this book. Trust me there aren’t that many accounts in default as a percentage of the whole or our banking system would collapse. If you write "The Letter", the creditor will put you at the front of the line.Brian Tawney, Director of Clear One Advantage: "Based on experience negotiating with creditors, debt settlement companies know what percentage of debt owed each creditor is likely to agree to. We use an algorithm that considers 140 different variables and tells us the accounts that have the highest opportunity to settle at any given time. We negotiate in bulk. We can negotiate thousands of cases and get a better settlement for everyone". Translation: Debt Settlement Agencies take only the easy cases that's why they "negotiate in bulk". If they have to spend more time on your case because you have wages a creditor can garnish and assets they can put a lien on, they will not take your case. I like my system better. You write "The Letter" which begs creditors to forgive 85% to 95% of your debt. The creditors can take it or leave it. If they take it, you win. If they leave it, they lose.

Here is an excerpt from the About Me section of the book:"In 2010, after two years at the advertising agency, I was thoughtfully living the financial life you are going to learn about if you read through the rest of this book. I decided that I was not going to let my spending increase with my income. I had separated my income from my spending. I was building my credit while reducing my debt. I was getting paid for having money. I was running my personal finances like a small business."In the middle of 2014, I was able to shift my career again. I set up an online business, replaced my main income with my side hustle, and was able to leave the rat race behind. I'm not going to go into how I set up my side hustle in this book. That is a very specific path that is not right for everyone. In this book, I want to focus on financial advice and tools that are right for everyone. I want to share my practical tips to become financially independent. I am going to focus on tips that will work whether you earn a salary, an hourly wage, commissions, or are self-employed."

Bamboo Strong is not a book about leadership theory or philosophy, although it is backed up by proven scholarly research. It is about leadership in action.We are living in an age when our workgroups are more diverse than ever before, and there is an increasing need for flexible global leadership across borders and cultures. This book focuses on you, on what you can do to develop and adapt your behavior for all cross-cultural situations.It provides guidance, insights, and personal examples to motivate, inspire, and reward you by taking specific actions to develop your cultural intelligence. However, this is not a book you can skim through hoping to pick up a few pointers. The perspectives it offers are incremental; the vision it presents grows broader and deeper the more you read.David shows us that to become successful Bamboo Leaders we must develop both resilience and flexibility, just like the bamboo bends with the wind but is rooted in strength. Transformation is achieved through daily practice, discipline, and above all by embracing diversity in our daily actions without losing our authenticity.The book’s theme resonates strongly with me. Cross-cultural confidence sophistication are fast becoming life skills that global CEOs and their senior teams neglect at their peril. Even organizations that don’t operate internationally can benefit from a culturally intelligent strategy for diverse workforces, generations, geographies, and functions. If you want to succeed in the global marketplace, and to lead more effective, high-performing teams at home, this is the book for you. - Marshall Goldsmith, #1 Leadership Thinker in the World
