Getting out of debt is not just about spending less and saving more. For many, there are many emotional and psychological factors that affect their ability to move forward toward being debt-free.
Chris Browning talks with Melanie Lockert about her own journey to deal with the mental and practical aspects of dealing with debt and how her voice resonates with many others who have similar struggles.
Melanie Lockert is the founder of the blog and author of the book, Dear Debt. Through her blog, she chronicled her journey out of $81,000 in student loan debt. She is also the co-founder of the Lola Retreat, which helps bold women face their fears, own their dreams and figure out a plan to be in control of their finances. She is passionate about empowering women, helping others get out of debt, and focuses on the intersection of debt and mental health. Every September she organizes a Suicide Prevention Awareness Blog Tour, to help share resources for those struggling with debt and suicide.
