Hey Destroyers, happy Friday!!!!
If you haven't seen it yet, Business Insider picked up my story of paying off $40,000 of student loans on a teacher's salary. 🙂 That was honestly one of the biggest news outlets that I hadn't had the chance to be on yet, so I'm super excited about it!!!
They asked me to give my best tips on tackling debt, and the article went up this week. Give it a read below (but come back). I'm really interested to hear what you all think about it:
You guys know me – I think the biggest part of paying off debt early is the mindset. I see so many people that have decided they'll never get ahead before they even start (ahem comment sections of every article I've been featured on).
Too many people spend time looking for a freaking blueprint to debt-freedom. There isn't one, especially when it comes to timelines and payoff amounts. There are SO many stories like mine out there, and none of them are one size fits all.
The most successful people that I've met in life don't look to replicate success. Period. They try to find strategies, and then look at the individual circumstances available to them and see what they can do. Please please please don't get caught up in trying to get rid of your debt like me or anyone else.
Find your own way, and make your own story.
Have a great weekend everyone, let me know what you think of the feature!
Question for you:
