Are your student loans a pain in the a$$?
Trying to figure out how to maintain a good GPA but worrying about undergrad loans?
Saving up for the vacation but Sally Mae just gave you a call?
If you have answered YES to these questions, you aren’t the only one. We have seen the numbers on how student loan debt is HIGHER than credit cards debt. (In a Wall Street Journal article it said, “Americans now owe more on their student loans ($830B) than their credit cards ($827B)…Mark Kantrowitz (publisher of FinAid.org and FastWeb.com) estimates that $300 billion in federal student loan debts have been incurred in the last four years.”) It’s difficult to break the code and actually leave with cash at graduation, outside of what grandma gave you. I’m sure it sounds impossible but it’s not at ALL. As a current undergrad student I have learned some tricks that I would LOVE to share, the stuff they don’t teach you in school. I have realized that best way to stop the problem is to share potential solutions. Drum roll pleaseeeeeeeeeee…….
Syreeta Gates is teaching a Skillshare class called: Leave College With Cash not Debt: The Fundoughmentals on Wed July 18th from 7-8:30pm … and YES! You, too, can make it rain while IN college!!!!!
ABOUT THIS CLASS
How many times has someone told you to go to college so you can get a great paying job at the end? SIKE! Let’s talk about student loan debt or Harvard graduates working at Starbucks! In a Wall Street Journal article it said, “Americans now owe more on their student loans ($830B) than their credit cards ($827B)…Mark Kantrowitz (publisher of FinAid.org and FastWeb.com) estimates that $300 billion in federal student loan debts have been incurred in the last four years.” We need to be learning skills about how to make, leverage, save and manage our dolla dolla bills yaul. This class is for Current College Students, Parents of College Students, Seniors in HS, and Grad Students that are tired of acquiring debt but not pulling in any income, while in college.

In the 90-minute class, participants will:
- Leverage college to get resources to do what they love
- Walk away with at least 1-3 ways to make money in school
