How I Paid Off $53,000 to Become Debt Free

Having to worry about finances is hard enough as it is, but having to worry about them as a business owner is another story. We tend to graduate college already in debt, and then add on business expenses and before you know it…you don’t know how to get out of it.

After college, my husband and I found ourselves in debt, but with my determination, I knew we could pay it off. After many side jobs, and hustling, we ended up paying off $53,000 worth of debt in one year, and I want to share our story with you.

In this episode I walk you through our journey of how we accumulated that debt, and how we went about paying (and keeping) it off.

In this episode I share:

  • Our journey to becoming debt-free
  • From not being happy in the classroom to becoming a business owner
  • How we were able to pay off our debt
