New book features mental and practical strategies for debt elimination

Obioma Anukwuem shares how he completely eliminated debt from his life

SALISBURY, N.C. – According to a report by the Pew Charitable Trusts, eight in 10 Americans are in some form of debt, most often because of a mortgage. Obioma Anukwuem knows how debt and financial struggles can ruin personal lives and relationships. More importantly, he knows that it is possible to break free from financial bondage and live a life of financial independence. He shares how in his new book, “Debt: Slavery in Disguise” (published by Xlibris).

In “Debt: Slavery in Disguise(how I paid a debt of half a million dollars in three and a half years),” Anukwuem shares the travails and triumphs of living the American dream. He had accumulated huge personal debt and realized that his spending habits would make his financial problems worse if he did not make drastic changes. The book not only describes his inspiring story, it shares the personally tried and tested strategies he used for debt elimination.

“I wrote this book to show that nothing is impossible if you dare and that ordinary people can do extraordinary things,” Anukwuem says. “Theoretically eliminating debt in its entirety is possible but it takes actually working on it to achieve any kind of results. That was what I did when I turned a claim on debt freedom into reality in the face of so many odds. That is why I wanted to share my experience.”

Timely and practical, “Debt: Slavery in Disguise” offers a blueprint for building a life of financial freedom and security. Anukwuem’s story will resonate with many who are enduring money problems.

“Debt: Slavery in Disguise”

By Obioma Anukwuem



In Debt: Slavery in Disguise, Obi Anukwuem captures the travails and triumphs of living the American dream. From his experiences, he sheds light on the traps that can ensnare us when we want to live well. He consciously and subconsciously allowed negative influences from people and things around him get him sidetracked, but he knew it was mostly his own doing. He forgot his own life and began to live other people’s lives in an effort to belong. Through poor judgment, indecisiveness, weak principles, and greed, he accumulated huge personal debt. He realized that his spending habits would make his debt matters only worse if he did not do something urgently about his debt. It stole his peace of mind many times. He did not cease until he found a way out of his bondage to debt. Even though he seemed to have stumbled into what promised to help eliminate his debt, he knew that it would take more than just a theory to tackle his problems.

The author believes that to do well in any area of life, we must be true to ourselves, be passionate about what we want, be decisive, and do right all the time. Our dreams, motivations, and aspirations have to always be at the forefront of our thoughts. Unless we change our mentality, life will always seem to be the same.

Through perseverance, huge sacrifice, and a desperate desire for a peace of mind, Obi and his family eliminated approximately $500,000 in personal debt in about three and a half years. He recalled a negative net worth just before this venture. Now, he no longer has to share his wealth with greedy creditors; his net worth is positive, no longer negative, and it continues on a healthy, upward trajectory.

His story can be yours as well.
