The His and Her Money Show

On today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, we talk about a big issue that is affecting our entire country, student loan debt. It is one of the biggest hurdles of anyone trying to get financially free. 

As our guest Ryan Craig points out, the U.S. student loan debt total is at $1.5 TRILLION dollars.

This debt was incurred mostly by students who believed the dream that college would help them get a “good job”, only to find that the “good jobs” wanted employees with a different set of skills.

How do we fix this problem and how do we prevent the next generation of college-bound students from falling into the trap?

Give them alternatives.

That’s what Ryan Craig is all about. Ryan argues that now is the time to give cheaper and more targeted options for people, throughout their careers, whether they are high school students or experienced workers looking to advance their career.
