Purpose of the Website
Specifically, this web-site is designed for professionals like my wife and I, who have bought into the system, spent many years of our lives and have accrued massive amounts of student loan debt only to find that the payout is, in the end, perhaps not worth the effort and time/money put in.
You may be employed but find your work disinteresting, mentally-taxing, or worst of all, morally bankrupting.
Alternatively you may love your job but worry about the continued delay of starting a family, buying a house, etc. because of a high student loan debt load.
For many professionals, the “pot of gold” at the end of the tunnel may not be there, or might not be at all what you expected.
This site will explore these thoughts and hopefully allow us to work towards solutions.
The blog/website will cover areas such as personal finance, self-improvement, time-management, employment, and managing/reducing loans. The content of this site is centered around the unique world of professional employment. Many topics will center on the challenges of being a professional as it relates to personal finance, employability or managing a career. However, the blog will also address personal development in all contexts, including areas such as eating healthy and trying to be a better person personally and professionally. Again, these issues will be discussed through the viewpoint of how they relate to being a professional/maintaining a career.
My Wife and I are two mid to late (ok my wife is mid, I am late) twenties professionals who live and work in New Jersey and have reached a degree of professional and personal success, yet still feel constrained by our large sum of student loans, societies/our expectations, and the burdens real or perceived which are tangentially related to overachievers such as ourselves. We welcome all comments/criticisms and hope everyone enjoys the site….or at least find it more enjoyable then their cubicle/boss.
