On December 21, 2016, I was honored to be a guest on The Money Champ Podcast with Nick Blair.
Nick created “The Money Champ” to help millennials win with money. He had me on to offer a sage perspective.
Nick also wrote a cool book called The Money Champ’s Guide to Getting a College Degree Debt Free. Nick says his goal in writing the book was to educate every parent and student on the potential dangers of irresponsibly taking out student loans. He feels insights from his book can help minimize or, even, eliminate the need for student loans.
My interview with Nick (as well as my recent relaunch series of videos) serves as a cautionary tale for young adults (ages 18-21) on what NOT to do when entering college.
It’s a cautionary tale on what going into the “real world,” (fresh out of high school into college) looks like when you’ve had no guidance on personal finance or the dangers of excessive student loan borrowing.
It’s a cautionary tale of how important it is to find mentors or positive role models, early, to help you identify the career path best suited to your unique strengths and personality.
It’s a candid and vulnerable conservation. If you feel the interview helpful or inspirational, then please hit me back here in the comments or on social media @goodbyebrokegirl with your thoughts. Also, please share it with your social network or those with whom you know it would resonate.
