You went to college. You took out the loans. Now you’re struggling to pay them back.

How are you supposed to build a future when, straight out of the gate, you’re buried in student debt?

Student loans are a trillion-plus dollar problem in the US. But that doesn’t mean you have to have the weight of Fort Knox on your shoulders.

There are options that you may not be aware of when it comes to dealing with your student loan debt. There’s refinancing and consolidation. But what do those terms even mean?

Who do you trust? What does all the fine print mean? And how can we make better financial decisions about our continuing education?

On this week’s episode, Vince Passione, the founder, and CEO of LendKey teaches us all about student loan refinancing.

Send us your questions at [email protected], and we’ll try to answer them on a future episode.
