Paying off Debt Through Side Hustling Replay
While I am enjoying a few weeks of vacation, I hope you enjoy this replay of one of my favorite podcasts with one of my favorite people, Melanie from Dear Debt.
We begin the podcast with a discussion of the martini that we are drinking which is the Chai Martini. I had never even heard of it, but it’s modeled after a drink that Melanie had a while back. If you would like to make one yourself, here is the recipe:
What are we drinking?
- 2 oz of Vodka (I prefer vanilla vodka for this recipe)
- 2 oz of Chai Tea Mix (You can find this in a box at most stores or Starbucks)
- 1 oz of Almond Milk
Melanie shared her debt repayment journey, which is as unique as she is. In total, she racked up $81,000 in debt and is now down to $35,000. She has paid all of this off while earning very meager incomes and at one point, she was even making so little that she qualified for food stamps.
Melanie has been able to make her debt repayment goals because she is a big fan of side hustling. She discussed what side hustling is for those who may not be aware and share some really funny stories about some of the wackier things she has done like working an overnight rave.
Melanie answered my random three questions which were:
- What movie makes you cry every time you watch it?
- If you got a plane ticket anywhere, where would you go?
- Are you a dessert or an appetizer person?
