“JAKE ASKS: I have read your book and love it. Using your formula I have already paid off a long-term debt. Unfortunately, my partner and I have separate finances (her choice) and I recently found out that, in the time I paid off my debt, she racked up another for twice as much. Frustrating! We both earn OK incomes (combined $200,000), but are still renting at age 37. As we have three kids, I really want to get into our own home in the next four years … how do I convince her?” Read More

“The universe is telling a self-employed tradie, caught in a debt trap, to start looking for a regular job, writes Barefoot Investor”

Doug Constable Replies: It is easy to say that, “To start looking for a regular job”, but to me I would think that someone that is self employed, is self employed because they want to be self employed
And maybe they should start learning what really does self-employed means as opposed to looking for another job
The freedom, opportunity and the strain dream of having a growing business is always there,and if I am not making enough money, most probably they need to go out and work out how to make more money as a tradesman as their own business as opposed to just be in a rut to be looking for a job

RE: Exploitative Gouging Stand Over Tactics of Randal Glennon of Three Wise Men, Response to Cameron Houston and Chris Vedelago article SMH Sydney Morning Herald

By | Blog, Response to Media | No Comments

How to Not Pay Your Debts author, Doug Constable, in debt again

 

Response

  • This headline assertion is false and misleading. Doug was not in debt.
  • Randal Glennon and his company Three Wise Men were paid.
  • The title of the book is now “What to do When You Can’t Pay Your Debts”.
  • An invoice issued by Randal Glennon, director at Three Wise Men Communications Pty Ltd, totalled $18,000. See 50% invoice pdf.
  • The Randal Glennon Three Wise Men $18,000 invoice was for a marketing campaign including website and email marketing to generate leads.
  • Randal Glennon’s $18,000 invoice was exploitative and gouging as it failed to deliver on contractual obligations.
  • Randal Glennon’s invoice was extremely overpriced, extremely under-delivered, unreasonable, exploitative, a gouge, unfair and un-Australian.
  • As a result it is Randal Glennon and Three Wise Men Communications Pty Ltd that is in debt for work owed.
  • Randal of Three Wise Men is expected to repay the sum.
