    About the Author:

    REVIEW, June 2015, in “Professionally Speaking”, the magazine of the Ontario Teachers’ Association - “This hard hitting self-help book offers straight advice to young adults as they begin their journey into the world of work, finance and survival. Written in an easy-to-follow format, its practical advice allows the reader to pick up and put down as needed—giving just enough information to help navigate a variety of real life situations and challenges. Written in a witty tone, "Someone Really Oughta Tell You" is ideal for high school or university students who are starting to set both short- and long-term life goals. Full of real world examples of what not to do with your time and money, it touches on subjects such as common-law relationships, wills, and when to claim on your insurance. Students will learn about taxes, rental agreements, insurance, mortgages, and credit cards—all of those real world responsibilities that aren’t taught in school and can land young adults into years of financial trouble. Each chapter also offers a list of further resources to supplement the strategies offered. The author is very clear that learning about these skills in a book is no substitute for actually applying them. An in-depth budgeting guide that encompasses everything from discretionary spending and paying down debt to banking fees is designed to help students track how much money they make and spend. Help your students prepare for the real world by arming them with this reality check before they venture out into the great unknown. Maybe then they won’t come back to tell you that someone really ought to have told them."
