I am far from the first to try to get out of debt by 30. In fact, as I was trying to get the blog name, I was shocked at the number of people who have tried something similar.
As so often happens with the good names, the people that get them never use them. Or they have stopped using them. Regardless, there is no shortage of advice out there for 20 somethings who are looking to build a future on solid financial footing.
There is a book
There is a website
There is another website
There is an eHow article
Even Fox Business has advice
I can't really offer much in the way of advice that would add anything to the mix. So you won't find that here.
What you will find here is a story that is happening now. A story of one 28-year-old's mission to become debt free by his 30th Birthday, 80 weeks from today.
To do that, I will have to pay Citibank an average of $875 each week. And at the moment, I don't have a job. I have a bunch of random skills and talents, I have dedication and passion to spare, and I have zero money in savings.
So with that, I invite you to join me, as I beg, barter, and create financial freedom in any way I can.
