My goal at StudentDebtSurvivor.com is to provide helpful tips, information and tools to friends and readers who are trying to become and remain debt-free. I’m not a personal finance expert, but I did pay off $30K in student debt, and hope to provide encouragement to others who wish to do the same. Information found on this site is just that, informational. If you need financial assistance or advice you should seek the help of a qualified financial professional.
Because I put a great deal of time, energy and money into the site, I think it’s acceptable that I receive compensation (small as it may be) to help pay blog expenses and keep the site free to the public. To make income from this blog, I do accept advertising and I do participate in affiliate programs.
