I have two main goals with this blog. The first is to inspire those who have student loans or other forms of debt to live below their means so that they can pay off their debt as quickly as possible.
The second goal is to reach those who are currently in college or will be heading to college soon. Many young people believe that attending college immediately after high school is the only path to success. If their parents can’t afford to help them pay for college, they often think student loans are their only option.

Winter has arrived here in Minnesota…I spent 20 minutes digging my car out of the snow this morning and it’s going to be -4 for the high one day next week! Brrr!

Studies show that about 40% of millennials don’t have a retirement plan in place. This doesn’t necessarily add up to laziness or a lack of care for the future. Many of us are just doing what we can, in the moment.
When things are going well, it’s easy to feel gratitude. But when things are kind of lousy, it’s a lot more difficult to feel thankful. I’m writing this post not just because of Thanksgiving, but because I need to make more of an effort to be grateful.
