From Dr. McClure: Spoiler alert: The Joneses are broke. That means keeping up with them will only get you into MORE debt!

It’s time to run fast and hard in the other direction, and Financial Peace University will show you how.

With Financial Peace University, you and your spouse will learn how to create (and stick to) a budget, save for emergencies, and make a plan for the future. Doesn’t that sound peaceful?
