Bringing in as much income as possible in order to reach your financial goals is key but that doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead if you don’t make a lot of money. Kara Perez, the creator of Bravely Go, is living proof that is living proof that as long as you’re willing to put the work in, achieving your financial goals with a low income is completely possible. After taking on more than $25,000 in student loan debt, Kara, extremely unhappy with her situation, started to research ways to quickly pay off her debt.

After becoming inspired by personal finance blogs such as Frugalwoods, Kara paid off $25,302 in loans on a salary of less than $30,000, the final $18,000 in just ten months. After becoming debt free in June 2015, Kara created Bravely to help other women take control of their financial lives.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How a simple Google search inspired her to pay off $18,000 in student loan debt in 10 months
  • How paying off her debt deepened her relationship with others
  • How her personal finance blog, Bravely Go, came to fruition
  • Why women have become her target audience
  • Kara’s 10 financial commandments for women
  • The significance of value-based spending and spending on the things that you love
  • Kara’s next financial and life goals
