One man determined to break free from $155K in student loans through learning from personal finance and money management experts. Why document this process? I'm terrible with money and I figure that I'm not alone. I hope this journey helps those in the hole climb their way out. And I hope we can do it together.
How To Grow Your Income With Home Health Contracting With Bert De Vera, PT
In this episode of The Breaking Student Debt Podcast, Will interviews Physical Therapist and Home Health Contracting business coach, Bert De Vera, PT.
Bert shares his story of moving from the Philippines after passing his Board Exam and starting life in America as PT. After working for someone else for 6 years, he hit a wall and started to wonder if the American dream he came for meant working endless hours for someone else and not having time to spend with his family.
That wondering led him to researching different ways to leverage his knowledge and increase his financial stability. He learned about Home Heath Contracting (the details of which he explains in this episode), started his own business, and has since been able to significantly increase his income and help other rehab professionals do the same, providing them with more time with their families and improving their financial lives.
If you're interested in learning more about Bert or seeing what his Home Health Contracting business program is about, you can connect with Bert at www.rehabpreneur.com / www.bertpt.com /www.homehealthcontract.com or find him on Facebook under Bert De Vera.

I am so glad that I came upon this podcast. I am working on my 3rd degree and my school has been funded by school loans! I have plans to open a business but loans and debt can hinder that.
