Coach Cliff’s main concerns, in his words

I graduated college three years ago with over 50k in student loans. I’m a teacher, and gross close to 40k a year and net just shy of 2k a month. I pay over a 1/4 of my net monthly income on student loan payments. I’m trying to figure out the best way to manage my finances. I don’t have the money to avalanche my student loans while maintaining my lifestyle. I am also debating getting my masters to increase my net income. It’s a constant concern for me.
