Live Richer Podcast, Episode 6: Ramsey Solutions’ George Kamel and Kristina Ellis on Tackling Student Loan Debt

This Episode

It’s quite evident that the student loan crisis has been a big topic of discussion for Americans’ massive pile of educational debt. In this episode, Ramsey Solutions’ personal finance experts George Kamel and Kristina Ellis share with our host how to tackle outstanding student loan debt and their documentary “Borrowed Future.”

Americans owe nearly $1.8 trillion in student loan debt– more than credit and auto loan debt, according to the Federal Reserve. After winning $500K in scholarships to fund her bachelor’s and master’s degree, Ellis gives tips on how to score scholarships and grants to earn a debt-free education. In the meantime, the federal government has put federal student loan payments on pause until December 31, 2022. Now is the perfect time for student loan borrowers to create a game plan for their budgets.
