PERSONAL FINANCE COACH
Start your debt free journey today
Hi, my name is Carissa! It's so nice to meet you and I am excited that you are here! My journey started a couple of years after I graduated college. Much like many college graduates I was sent off campus with a few handshakes, many "congratulations!", and $62,000 of student loan debt. I wasn't given any real guidance on how to deal with the debt that I racked up in five years. I spent the first two years making the minimum payments, but not really seeing the balance budge much. That's when I pulled up my handy dandy search engine and typed this exact phrase, "How to get rid of student loans fast?" I suddenly saw just how quickly my debt could be paid off.
One year later and now I'm becoming a success story. In just 12 months I have paid off $40,000 of student loan debt. I have paid off my private student loan that totaled $31,000 and I am about a third of the way through paying off my federal student loans.
Through this process, Excel and I have become best buds...to the point where I get true excitement over learning a new formula.
I'm passionate about personal finance and it saddens me that schools have not made it a core subject. I want to give people the guidance that I needed the day I graduated. So please know that I am here, always in your corner rooting for you! We can all conquer our debt.
