From the time he was young, Rennie Gabriel was struggling with how to handle money effectively. It was definitely not taught in schools and the CPAs he approached certainly did not have personal budgeting information that they could teach. When he got deeper in debt even though he made more money, it finally dawned on him that more money was not going to solve a problem of mismanagement. He began to model what works and started hanging around with people who had the attitudes he needed to adopt. Rennie started copying what the wealthy did and started understanding the attitudes that wealthy people operated by. That’s what led him to start a program called Debtors Anonymous, a twelve-step program for people who can’t handle money to find mental, emotional, and psychological support from other people who’ve been through the same things.
