37: Paying Off Student Loan Debt with a Median Income and Two Kids in Northern California with Kyle Renke
09.10.2018 - By BiggerPockets Money Podcast
Kyle Renke graduated from college and hopped right on the American dream bandwagon. He started off with a starter house, added a couple of kids and moved onto a bigger, better house—one that he could barely afford. He then went back to grad school, tacking on another $40k in student loans. Kyle and his wife spent money left and right, never seeming to be able to get ahead. Finally, he got sick and tired of being sick and tired. Kyle read books and connected with friends in a better financial position. He sold the big house, threw everything at the student loans, and rented a smaller, MUCH less expensive place. Kyle’s story shows that you CAN make big financial mistakes, change your course, and work toward financial freedom—even with children.
