I did a video interview with Ken who blogs at The Humble Penny. He came round to chat about the role that fear can play in motivating you to take action and other stuff related to financial independence, blogging and life in general.
I also did an interview with Araminta, who blogs at Financially Mint.
As well as being a student, Araminta is a bit of a personal finance whizz. She manages to combine her studies in Edinburgh with working, blogging and side hustles.
When you’re in debt, your compounding machine is stuck in reverse gear. So paying for college without taking on a crippling amount of student debt is a big issue. I was lucky to go to university before tuition fees…today’s students definitely have it harder on that front. This means that frugality, part time / holiday jobs and fresh thinking are more important than ever.
Araminta is a great example of what’s possible and has some interesting thoughts on getting through college with as little debt as possible…which you can check out over at Financially Mint.
Here’s a recording of our chat:
If you’d like more, I recently pulled together various interviews (TV, podcasts, press) and put them all in one place….see the Interview Page here.
