Imagine a day when a college degree takes just one year to complete. Tuition is free and, upon graduation, companies like Spotify and Lyft want to hire you. Discussing alternative ways to pay for college over on the Mint blog.
Mint user Aaron Hahn vividly remembers the moment he decided to crush his debt. Now he’s on track to pay off $11K of debt in one year. I’m checking in with him every few months to see how he’s doing and share more about his journey to financial independence.
Back in December, I had the opportunity to review Ken’s financial profile. He’s an airline pilot who earns about $100,000 a year. At 36 years old, his main financial gripe is that he’s tired of carrying around his $45,000 student loan debt. (Can you blame him?) I followed up with him to see how he’s doing six months after we last connected.
