As a long-time veteran of the mortgage and real estate industries, Doug is focused on consumer advocacy. He believes that every consumer should take charge of their financial future, and the path to getting there is through education.
Doug and his co-host, Tammie, talk about money and fundamental financial principles on the show. Doug, Tammie, the team, and his expert contributors put together ever-growing educational content on this site to give consumers a reliable resource to educate themselves.
On the the Doug Haldeman Show, Doug and Tammie and their guests talk about a wide variety of money topics, including:
- Responsible debt and standard of living management
- Planning for the unexpected life events that create credit card debt
- Proper mortgage selection
- How to become financially free and debt free
Each topic is part of the larger picture of the mission Doug and his team are on.
