What do you want to be when you grow up?

/ / Finance

How many times have you been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  When I was younger, I just wanted to ride my bike and play tag with my friends. I didn’t want to think that far ahead when I was blowing out 9 candles on my birthday cake.

Now, some of us are blowing out a lot more candles on our cakes, and we’re still asking that question!

Our lives are filled with so many possibilities and I think that is beautiful!  Doesn’t time fly when you’re growing up!

Somewhere in the middle of raising my four children, I realized I could finally answer the big question. I knew what I wanted to be – a teacher. Of course, I couldn’t just go get a job as a teacher… first, I needed to get a college degree. That’s when I realized what so many of you have also realized in your lives — Wow! does college cost a lot!

Are you like the 44.2 million Americans who paid for college by taking out student loans? I bet it feels like most of your income goes to endlessly paying them off. It’s almost like you’re paying for your college degree twice. And you are, thanks to interest. (Sorry, but it’s true!) However, the worst part about having student loan debt is that you can’t truly enjoy the career that you worked so hard to get! How are you supposed to enjoy your career and all your accomplishments when you’re chained to the stress of paying off debt?  What are you missing out on because you’re worried and stressed out about debt?

The honest truth is that having student loan debt has long-term negative consequences on your financial future. But it doesn’t have to. You figured out what you wanted to be when you grew up and you went for it! You have a college degree! You are amazing! And you deserve to balance your level of education and your personal finances. 

There is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to paying off debt. That’s why T&H Financial Coaching meets with you one-to-one to analyze your personal financial situation and rebalance your finances to pay off your student loans.
