GREAT SHOW!

I really enjoy your show, after listening to a few episodes I was totally hooked, it has great direction, it deals with very instructive and interesting topics. I really love this program!

barbs88312 ,

This is the show that finally got me hooked on podcasts

I recently graduated with 260,000 in student loan debt. I was feeling panicked about the amount of debt that I am in…how am I going to do the things I want to do in life when my student loan payments take an entire paycheck to pay?? Well, this podcast will tell you how, empower you to start your journey to a debt free or smart debt life and more. I’ve been binging episodes, taking notes, creating a budget, and setting up a 5 year student loan repayment plan all from what I learned on this podcast. It feels like we should be paying for this content!!

Cannot recommend it enough.
