Canadians are drowning in debt, with 47% struggling to cover the cost of living each month and as a nation, now has the highest debt load per household of all G7 countries.
Guest Melanie Lockert is the founder of the blog and author of the book, Dear Debt, who chronicled her journey out of $81,000 in student loan debt but struggled with her mental health and depression throughout. Her experience led her to launch her new website, MentalHealthandWealth.com, which highlights the intersection of debt and mental health, and provides resources for those struggling.
She shares how your money mindset can make or break your efforts to pay off debt and the most effective strategies to pay off your debt, fast.
