I am working with Marcus by Goldman Sachs™ to help spread the word about Marcus loans.
Debt can happen to anyone. I’m living proof.
My debt story began when I got my first credit card.
For various reasons, including fluctuating interest rates following the interest-free introductory period and multiple late payments that incurred fees and penalty interest, I’d racked up $30,000 in credit card debt within three years. I also owed another $10,000 to my parents, who generously paid for my college education. That’s right: within three years of getting my first credit card, I was $40,000 in debt.
