Anthony ONeal dug himself into $35,000 of debt by the time he turned 19.
His debt was unnecessary. He didn’t need this money to cover tuition or books; his father’s military GI Bill covered his college expenses.
Anthony took out discretionary loans — mostly in the form of credit card debt — to buy luxuries like furniture. Yes, furniture.
When he couldn’t keep up with the payment, lenders repossessed his couch.
He repaid his debt, vowed never to spend beyond his means, and became a crusader for a debt-free lifestyle. Today he’s the bestselling author of Debt-Free Degree, a book that teaches parents how to help their children graduate from college debt-free. He’s also the author of Graduate Survival Guide, along with Rachel Cruze.
Anthony joins us on the show to discuss how parents and students can defray or eliminate the cost of a college education.
