Student loan debt is real and politicians are fighting about it with no clear answers. Meanwhile, what you really want to know is can you actually pay off your student loans and build your wealth at the same time?

Robert Farrington, the mastermind behind The College Investor who is also America’s Student Loan Debt Expert, is dishing his tips to pay off your debt while balancing the need to grow your wealth.

I get asked this question a lot, “How can I grow wealth and invest when my student loan payment is draining my bank account?” It’s tricky, I know, and it’s emotional and stressful.
