2 Part Feature In Forbes (WHAT?!)

Meet the 29-Year-Old Who Paid
Off $113,000 In Student Loans
Well here I am, single on Valentine’s Day for the umpteenth year in a row... However, I am featured in FORBES again today, so I think I’ll be just fine ;)

All joking aside, I wanted to let you all know that I accept these interview requests and post these stories not to toot my own horn, but to help folks. Every time an article comes out in a major publication, I get an influx of emails from you guys. Finances are a very private matter for most, but I am grateful for those of you that have the courage to ask for help. Some of y'all send me emails longer than I know what to do with and some merely ask one simple question; I love both kinds. Some of you I can help, some of you I can’t. It might take a few weeks, but I try and reply to everyone because I know exactly how you feel.

If you would’ve told me in high school that I’d have a 2 part feature in FORBES at the age of 29, I for sure would’ve thought the subject would be around music, not finances. So believe me, I've had my share of humble pie along this journey of mine, but if I can help just one person, it’s worth it. Is this the story I would have written for myself? Uh, no. But I didn’t write it, He did; and for that I choose to be grateful and agree to share my experience with anyone who genuinely wants to know.

Shout-out to Zack Friedman at Forbes for publishing this interview as well as letting me be a part of his podcast on Make Lemonade (coming soon)!

  1. Hi Jessica,

    Don't worry about tooting your own horn. My mom always say "Toot your own horn, no one else is going to do it for you!" Especially for an accomplishment this size.

    After reading your second article, I must say that you do have a financial head on you. I like how you have plans going forward with your money. Roth IRA is totally a good thing. I have not heard of the Robert Kiyosaki’s plan, so that is something I will definitely have a look into.

    Take a bow young lady, you deserve it.

    Applause, applause, applause.

    Regards,
    Pierre

    1. You are ever so kind, Pierre! Thank you yet again for the kind words. I cannot wait to start a Roth! There is a lot of controversy around Robert's plan, but definitely something to at least check into. Taking a bow :) Thanks again!

  4. For a change, the information you have put up are for more detailed and precise. This is will indeed benefit the readers. As far as no guarantor loans are concerned, there are plenty of offers available. However, it is with sites like metroloans.uk that you stand to avail the real deals. I believe the loans have the capacity to improve the financial situation of the individuals who are struggling.
