Joe DePaulo, CEO and Co-Founder of College Ave Student Loans

The topic today on the show is affording college. Some of you are about to send your little kiddos off to college… can you believe it? They’re already 18 or 19 years old. Or some of you might have graduated and still are grappling with your student loans from college 10 years ago. We will be talking about all things affordability… How to afford college while you’re in college? How to afford college while you’re done with school because you’ve got student loans?

Joining us for this conversation is a special guest, Joe DePaulo, CEO and co-founder of College Ave Student Loans. They’re currently the leading fin-tech next generation student loan marketplace lender.

More about our guest Joe… he is a financial services veteran having previously worked as CFO and executive vice president of banking and was a member of the board of directors at Sallie Mae. Before Sallie Mae, he was CEO and co-founder of Credit One Financial Solutions, which is a company focused on debt consolidation.

Joe and I talk about how we can better educate students to borrow just enough, not too much but just enough, so that they can instead focus their efforts on finishing school, getting that great job and not making their debt a burden. How do you make sure college is a return on investment?

As a partner and brand collaborator with College Ave Student Loans, I’m really excited to bring you this special episode of So Money.
