When I started my college journey, a year early I might add. The picture of the photo finish was different from the way it all played out. I know, that’s probably everyone’s story. You hit the ground running and the motivation, excitement and dreams of what’s to come help you float through your task. Then life happens and you fumble your way though the new edited version.
Have you heard of a phone alp called Givling? It’s a pretty fun idea, playing a trivia game that in turn help winners in a big way. The pay out can be used towards your student loans, your mortgage, or an approved investment account. There are also additional in game ways to win more. If you decide to check it out, my invite code is below!
Did you Finish?
I did complete my bachelors, and I’ve worked hard over the past 11 years to continue to grow my career. The downside is the loans continue to grow. Between two lenders, the payoff balance is $242,241.00. It’s overwhelming to look at sometimes because, fighting to finish was really just the beginning of a new journey. The fight to pay off this monster loan.
There were lots of situations that happen in-between my start and finish. Two marriages, four beautiful children, the Marines and a lifetime of memories. Oh I kept the 2nd hubby. Looking for new ways to chip away at the loan over time. The next step is putting the family on a no spend diet so we can grow our credit score and look at lenders with lower interest. Like college it’s going to take hard work.
This is the beginning and the hope is to continue to find creative ways to knock this loan out ! Your not alone in this process, we just have to do a little digging. I’ll continue to link great processes as I find them, but check out Givling and their great cause.
