So it has begun. I am officially done with my academic coursework as well my clinical rotations. I graduate in one week from tomorrow and reality is setting in. I OWE A LOT OF F****** MONEY. Over $155,000 to be exact. Apparently Doctorate degrees aren't cheap. Who would have thought? ;)
What is this podcast/blog/project? It's my attempt to learn from people who have successfully overcome their student and personal debts through interviews, blogs, and videos. As the journey progresses, I will continue to document and synthesize the lessons learned along the way.
Why not just do this for myself? Why start a podcast? Well, I like people. I like helping people. That's probably the reason 99% of people get into Physical Therapy as a profession and I'm no different. I've also seen so many of my friends be forced into making undesirable job, personal, and financial decisions due to the weight of their student loans hanging over them.
My hope is that we can all learn together and break ourselves free from debt. Thank you for taking time to stop here and I hope that you find a little bit of value during your stay.
