I have some big news, 3 years to the date I am able to say that I am 100% student debt free. I have finally scheduled my last student loan debt payment and can say that I have paid off over $33,555 in student loan and credit card debt and now i’m student loan and credit card debt free! Whew, it feels good to finally say that.
Trust me when I say that it wasn’t easy, but now that I’m completely free of that dead weight I can save as much as $1000 a month just from my linear income, not to mention any other income from passive assets like stocks and bonds, real estate, or income received from partnerships or affiliate relationships.
I will say that along the way I have made a lot of mistakes and I could have gotten there a lot faster if I had followed the framework that so many others outlined.
I didn’t adhere 100% to the Financial Peace University program, and I ended up incurring an additional -$12,000 in my business, which slowed me down, but I was still able to do it and get it done. Now, the efforts and energy will be focused on doubling the income and working half the time I was at my corporate gig.
