65% of college students graduate with student loan debt and more than 63% of those students have no idea what type of debt they have and how they are going to go about repaying it.
Attendees will learn: We'll detail all of the types of student loan debt and how you should prioritize repaying it. We'll discuss when it makes sense to refinance and why you shouldn't even if you do get lower rates. We'll share our favorite sites and resources for managing through your student loan debt.
About This Speaker: This workshop is provided by the Financial Gym. After years of working for a big bank including working as a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch, Shannon was inspired to create The Financial Gym, a financial services company that actually cared for its clients and provided them the services they needed. Most financial services companies only care about you as far as they can sell you products like investments, bank accounts, credit cards, loans and insurance policies. They also want to give you technology and apps to solve your financial problems; however, something we know at the Financial Gym is that money is personal and people aren’t algorithms. Technology is great for the DIY’er, but most of us need a human to turn to for financial guidance: Should I pay off my student loans or invest? How do I pay down my credit card debt? What should I do with my tax refund? How do I stop living paycheck to paycheck?
