A former Wall Street Journal reporter for CNBC, Lynnette has interviewed thousands of financial experts, and personally paid off more than $100,000 in credit card debt. Now she shares the secrets to wealth in her new book, ZERO DEBT. ItÂs based not just on LynnetteÂs professional knowledge, but also on her first-hand experience.
ÂUnfortunately, neither of the candidates is making consumer debt a top priority in their campaigns Â even though Americans are deep in debt and filing for bankruptcy at record levels,Â Lynnette says. ÂMr. Kerry, however, has made some interesting proposals to help consumers in debt. One of them would require greater disclosure by credit card companies, forcing them to reveal the true cost of credit in bold type by stating how long it would take a person to pay off his or her debts if only minimum payments were made.Â
Lynnette, a veteran financial news journalist, currently writes a weekly newspaper column called ÂFinancially Fit.Â Lynnette is also the author of Investing Success: How to Conquer 30 Costly Mistakes and Multiply Your Wealth! (Advantage World Press; $24.95).
A frequent guest on TV and radio shows across the country, Lynnette is a popular national speaker on money management, debt elimination, financial planning and investing. She has also been the Personal Finance Editor for Dow Jones Newswires, a correspondent for The Philadelphia Inquirer, a writer for FOX-TV in Philadelphia, and a reporter for the Associated Press in Los Angeles.
