Derek Olsen joins us on today's show to discuss his new book The Four Week Financial Turnaround*. We also discuss how he and his wife went through a tough financial storm early on in their marriage when they were forced to do a short sale. Derek shares how stressful that process was in addition to sharing why it took four hours for he and his wife to do their first budget. By reading the book and applying the principals into your life Derek believes that you will be able to save more money at the end of the four weeks.
