Who Says You Can’t Be Free? Ditch Debt and Build Wealth with ‘Breaking Free From Broke’ 

JANUARY 16, 2024

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In his first book, personal finance expert George Kamel exposes the money traps stealing Americans’ margin, freedom and joy. “Breaking Free From Broke,” published by Ramsey Press, releases today. In it, Kamel draws on his lived experiences to reveal the myths and lies we’ve come to believe about personal finance.  
“America is the land of the free and home of the broke,” said Kamel. “Millions of Americans aren’t where they want to be financially. They weren’t taught this stuff, and now it feels like they’ll never get ahead. I get it. I still remember feeling stressed about money and hopeless about the future. Even though it wasn’t my fault, it was my responsibility to get myself out of this money mess. Now I want to empower others to do the same.” 
Following a proven plan, Kamel went from broke to a millionaire in under 10 years. Pairing pop culture with humor, wit and well-researched data, Kamel breaks down what’s holding Americans back when it comes to: 

  • Credit scores.  

  • Credit cards. 

  • Student loans. 

  • Car loans. 

  • Mortgages. 

  • Marketing and consumerism, and more.  

“Breaking Free From Broke” is available today at
