I graduated college in 2010 with $95,000 in student loan debt and did the smartest thing I could think of at the time. I bought a brand new car.

Back then I was living in my parent's basement in New Jersey while trying to make it as a filmmaker. At my lowest point I had $13 in the bank. Then I plugged my finances into a net-worth calculator online and realized I actually had negative money. I was worse than "worthless".
