The Young Money Podcast is one year old, and the feedback and reviews I’ve received from my listeners have truly been heartwarming. Over the last year, it has been my privilege to help young millionaires-in-the-making demystify personal finance concepts and learn strategies to become financially fit through the stories, insights, and successful entrepreneurs we have featured on the show.


On today’s special episode, I answer some of your most pressing questions on money and finance. I explain the difference between government and non-government student debt, why you should not comingle these types of debt, and strategies you can use to evaluate and consolidate your debt. I explain how university students can still apply for scholarships, even after they’ve started their post-secondary education. I also share what you should consider when taking out a line of credit and how some outstanding lines of credit can impact your ability to qualify for certain loans.


“Certainly, when you graduate school - whether it’s college, university, whatever it may be - you want to do an evaluation of how much debt that you do have.” - Tracey Bissett
