Student loans have been heavy on my mind lately. My oldest daughter will graduate from high school this year and is headed to college in the fall.
On this week’s A Prioritized Life podcast, Jenn and I interview Jay Fleischman of Consumer Help Central and the Student Loan Show. A consumer protection lawyer by trade, Jay shares the knowledge he’s gained helping people deal with their student loan debt.
Interviewing Jay was an eye opening experience. I learned the difference between federal and private loans, different ways to repay loans, and things to consider before taking out any loans in the first place.
I’m fortunate in that my daughter has opted to go to community college, so she won’t have to take out loans while she’s still trying to figure out what to do with her life. If you have a child near graduation, I encourage you to listen to this show! And if you’re in student loan debt, this show will also be beneficial for you.
Listen right here or in iTunes. And be sure to head over to A Prioritized Life if you want the complete student loan debt show notes!
