Joe Mihalic was heading for lifestyle inflation after graduating from Harvard Business School with $101,000 in student loans. He found a great job and bought a home in Austin along with a couple of cars, a motorcycle, and a few other toys.

He was living the life!

He was also paying $1100 a month toward student loans.

One evening, Joe wrestled with that age-old question: is this really the life I want to live? What emerged was a new found sense of purpose, a blog highlighting his experience, and one mind-blowing challenge to dump $80,000 in less than 1 year.

Shayla Price talks about earning over $100,000 in scholarships by her junior year in high school. One way to avoid large student loans is to start early and aggressively seek free money.

I laughed (more like cringed) as I listened to this early recording in the Midday Money Show history. We've come a long way since chatting with Shayla. However the information is still relevant. Just have a little patience with the rough edges (and poor sound quality)!

An unintended consequence of the Meals @ Home challenge is I’m making better food choices.  I enjoyed the conversation with the ladies of Two Healthy Kitchens because they shared how to spice up mealtime without spending your life in the kitchen. Tune in and be inspired!
