Student loan debt can create anxiety and depression for young lawyers. Some lawyers choose to bury their head in the sand, while others just buckle down and make their payments on time, but on today’s show I chat with Kevin from the Financial Panther about how he accelerated his repayments. After realizing how much he disliked having student loans, he put a plan into place that allowed him to pay his loans off in just 2.5 years!  

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Things to consider when picking a law school and taking on debt
  • The key to avoiding lifestyle inflation
  • How Kevin paid off his student loans in 2.5 years
  • The meaning of financial independence
