“The word debt does not have a positive connotation and hence does not carry positive energy. To change debt energy into abundance, you must surround it with strong positive energy.
Generate positive energy, and abundance is yours.
In the realm of thought energy, positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative.”

Like most people, I worked hard all my life. At the age of 58, I found myself facing bankruptcy. In my case, improper handling of finances had become a habit that moved in and stayed with me for a long time. A certain sense of helplessness and inadequacy came over me when I realized that I lacked knowledge of financial management. I was not exposed to it at any of the schools and institutions where I had studied. I started traveling around the world at a very tender age of 17. Therefore, parental guidance in this area was also not available.
I soon found that information on the subject was sporadic and just not readily available. Much of the information was not clear enough for the average person to make an informed decision. Some of the local consultants and advisers did not have complete or up-to-date information. Some of them were unable to speak proper English, making me question their knowledge of the law and their ability to read it, follow it, and communicate it effectively.
I started a long journey of studying the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (BIA), the federal law that governs consumer debt in Canada. Many so-called consultants had not read the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (BIA) in depth in this area, let alone understand its intent. They simply collect clients’ pertinent data and pass it on to a trustee for processing. The trustee does all the work. For this they charge a fee with an intent to make a quick buck. Some consultants aggressively promote bankruptcy because it is the easiest route and the fastest way for them to make money. They have no problem in modifying the client’s financial records to meet this end. Leaving the client in a very vulnerable position with his/her creditors. Looking back at my own case, I realize that if I had received the appropriate advice, my bankruptcy would have easily been avoided.
The debt consulting industry is not regulated and therefore attracts many unqualified individuals. Whereas an unscrupulous Licensed Insolvency Trustee can lose his or her license under the BIA (Section S 13.2 ), consultants are not licensed, nor is there a governing body or accreditation process. Federal regulations governing this are being considered. In the meantime I recommend that you do your research and obtain referrals before engaging with a consultant you may or may not know.
Having spent many years studying the Act and working closely with Licensed Insolvency Trustees to build a strong knowledge base, I have developed a deep understanding of the intent of the Act. This book is compiled with information, together with my own insights, to help you make a decision on how to manage your debt load. I sincerely hope that this will guide you through your difficult times.
I have long believed that managing finances should be a mandatory subject starting in high school, if not lower grades. Coincidentally, while I was finalizing this book in 2017, the Ontario Government announced a grade ten pilot project to teach students financial management. I am not aware of any other such programs in other provinces; I strongly believe that they’re necessary for the future of this country.
This book helps readers to determine the nature and severity of their debt issues and offers suggestions for both solving them, and avoiding them in the future. Covering areas such as “the danger signs,” student loans, and the distinction between proposals and bankruptcies, Art of Debt Management provides practical, intuitive advice for individuals suffering financial difficulties.

Liv Babra covers topics and information that you don't find anywhere else, and makes the world of finance a lot easier to understand. Well researched, pleasant to read, and empowers readers. A generous contribution by Liv Babra!

This book is very well written and easy to read and understand. There are worksheets and excellent support spreadsheets to help the reader assess their financial situation, make a budget, and includes other relevant worksheets. This book would be an excellent primer for Grade 12 students about to enter the world of adult responsibility for their money. Even if the parents are paying the bills, this will help explain the consequences of debt. Plenty of references to online sources as well. Social service organizations should offer this as well, to help those in financial constraints. Well done, Liv.
