By show of hands… how many of you reading this have student loans? *My hand is up!*
Today, Housing Counselor and Financial Coach Mansa Musa talks about building a strategy before you get a student loan, what to do if you have a hefty loan now and a quick lesson on “compound interest.”
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.” ~ Albert Einstein
For Take Control Tuesday’s Mr. Musa is giving away free admission to their next moneysmartlife.org event ($25 value.) This event is for anybody that wants to achieve a goal.
