Keeping climbing y'all!
Often times we feel alone when we start thinking about our financial situations, especially students faced with the overwhelming burden of massive student loan debt. A friend of mine, Ryan Bourdo, a Student Physical Therapist at Regis University, recently wrote a wonderful blog post about his experience handling his student loans. You can read the full article here or by clicking the button above!
Here's a brief snippet of Ryan's blog post, "My Student Financial Situation".
"Perhaps having a vague goal of the future is what is keeping from you from really planning your money out. Or maybe you feel that your debt is scary and ignore it. Or just simply think, “That’s future *your name here*’s problem.” However, what I, and almost everyone who touches finances, believe is that the time is now to work on your own debt and finances. Really, the time was yesterday but you’re here now and that is what matters."

This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Professor of Economics at Temple University, Dr. Doug Webber, Ph.D about student loan debt from a macro level. Doug is one of the nicest and brightest people I have had the pleasure of talking with. He has been published in FiveThirtyEight.com and has such an incredible perspective about higher education policy.
Have you ever wondered where all of that tuition money goes to? Are colleges and universities just pocketing huge sums of money? How can we curb the amount of student loan debt from an institutional level? I ask Doug all of these questions and more in this episode.
