Today’s show is all about Bankruptcy. The stats on bankruptcy are pretty scary as the number of personal filings has risen by more than 14 times since 1970! Some of the topics discussed are how to avoid bankruptcy, the difference between a chapter 7 and a chapter 13, why most people who think they are bankrupt are not, and how bankruptcy might not even solve your problem.

We continue in the “My Experience in . . .” series today by discussing how I paid for college.  Thankfully, I was able to go to college and earn a degree in accounting without going into student loan debt!  How did I do that?  Well, I give the four keys that I believe helped me be able to accomplish that feat and hint: it was not playing Madden on the PS3 or watching Real World episodes.  I also tell what I would do differently if I could do it again and how I would be better prepared.

As mentioned in the podcast, Zach Bissonnette’s book Debt-Free U: How I Paid for an Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, or Mooching off My Parents is an outstanding book that all college students and parents of college students should read before going to school.

What are the things that keep holding you back from winning financially? Today’s discussion goes into more detail on the things that are holding us back financially: from car payments, to family dynamics, to poor financial habits. We all have them, but how do we identify them and how much are they hurting us? Can you succeed with money if these stumbling blocks are still in your life?
