027 Dealing with debt with Debt Camel

If you are a teacher worried about debt, then listen in as Sara, from Debt Camel, gives tips and suggestions for reducing the cost of your debt and paying off your debt. She also talks about hidden pitfalls and how to avoid these costly mistakes.

Having trouble managing your debt or perhaps you want to learn some tips on how to avoid getting into unmanageable debt? I am so happy to have Sara Williams of Debt Camel in this episode to share her wealth of knowledge and experience in all things debt. No wonder she is often quoted in various newspapers and invited to speak on radio as well as television shows because of her expertise on this complicated yet very relatable topic. You can always count on Sara to make complicated things easier to understand, especially when it comes to dealing with debt.
