With our country currently drowning in $1.5 Trillion of student debt, it’s fair to say we have a big problem on our hands. This problem is hitting home as well. Couples are delaying marriage, delaying having a baby and even strategically getting divorced to lessen the burden of their student loans.
If you’re listening to this, you may just be one of the many Americans that’s feeling like they are completely under water with these loans.
Well today, I have a very special guest who’s going to talk with us about our options for getting rid of these loans the right way. Travis Hornsby from Student Loan Planner shares how refinancing and student loan forgiveness may be our tickets to student debt freedom.
What are we covering?
Travis and I chat about:
- How he helped his wife pay off over $124,000 in student loans in 15 months
- Why couples are delaying marriage and parenthood
- How refinancing and student loan forgiveness will help us become student debt free
This student debt crisis is not going away so we need to educate ourselves on how to survive and thrive. Travis is an expert who will support you on your journey to student debt freedom.

Money Master of the Week
Mr. Apathy Ends recently paid off $85,000 of student loans!
On his path to paying off his student debt, he refinanced his loans from 6.38% to 3.85%. This helped him save around $3,000 in interest charges.
That extra boost helped him to say bye-bye to his student debt for good. His only regret was that he didn’t refinance sooner. He used SoFi for his refinance.
If you want to learn more his student debt elimination and his path to financial independence, check out him out at Apathy Ends. (By the way, I LOVE his writing. I share every article he writes on Twitter.)
