Who says student loans have to be your new normal?

It’s easy to sweep your student loans under the rug after spending hours trying to figure out how you can accelerate repayment while still enjoying life.

You’re not alone.

Countless Black women are dreaming of how life could be if their 5 or 6-figure student loan debt disappeared.
Maybe you’ve gone from excitement about getting ahead of your payments, only to end up giving up after biting off more than you can chew.
OR You’re completely overwhelmed, trying to narrow down the BEST repayment options for yourself. Instead of settling on the right option, you pay the minimum, say a prayer, and hope your mountain of debt gets smaller, sooner rather than later.
No worries! The Frugal Feminista’s 5-Day Slay Sallie Mae Challenge was created to help you fearlessly slash every cent of your student loan debt.

What Others Are Saying about Kara’s Unique System for Accelerating Student Loan Repayment

Loved the community and accountability. The experience definitely heightened my awareness and confidence.

Britni L

I am no longer fearful nor embarrassed by my student loan debt. I am happy to have met people who experienced the same fears and I am now part of a slaying sisterhood where we all win.

Tiffany D.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how valuable and productive the program has been for my mind, money and emotions. For example, there Day 2 retirement breakdown was eye-opening. Then, the day 3 video about different ways to sell/market oneself with resources were huge game changers. Kara’s willing openness was refreshing. If I applied everything in this $197 course, I’d make over $1 Million - other programs do not deliver so much in so little time.

Alexis R.

I've gone through and started to make payments to other important parts of my debt as well. I've started a side gig that can assist me with putting more money to the side to assist with putting money to the side for my student loans.
