After graduating from college with a master’s degree at the age of 25, I started life with a clean slate.
I had managed to save a few thousand dollars more over the years from my job, waiting tables and bartending in college. So at age 25, I had no debt and a decent amount of money to start my life.
At that moment in the bank lobby back in 2011, we decided enough was enough.
The church I go to has a saying. “It’s okay not to be okay; it’s just not okay to stay that way.” My view on debt is similar.
