Shred Method for Getting Out of Debt (with Adam Carroll)

Shred Method for Getting Out of Debt (with Adam Carroll)

Mortgages have become a part of American life as much as the American dream. For most people, homeownership comes with 15 to 30 years of monthly payments and thousands of dollars of interest paid to banks. My guest is here to share some ideas for other ways to get out of debt. Using the Shred Method, Adam Carroll paid off his home in record time saving over $180,000 in interest in the process. Adam Carroll has published four books, produced an award-winning documentary on student loan debt, has a TED talk with over 5 million views and helps people achieve true financial freedom in their lives. More than financial freedom, Adam is all about helping people achieve time freedom, relationship freedom, and service freedom.
