This site hopes to answer some questions we face as young professionals with a ton of student loan debt.  What can we do to fight back and take our destiny into our own hands?  How do we increase income and income streams and cut down on expenses?  Should you follow your entrepreneurial spirit or follow your passions or stick with what is comfortable and gets you through another week?  From one broke professional to another, we hope this site will start some dialogue and be a great sounding board for improvement in all of our lives.

Most other people who blog in the field of Personal Finance discuss their “Goal of obtaining one million dollars” or their “journey to financial independence and freedom”, here at www.brokeprofessionals.com, we have a net worth of NEGATIVE $110,000.00, (thanks to our student loans), so our goal is simple: just to make it back to broke ($0.00 net worth).

BROKEPROFESSIONALS.COM is created/run by a Husband/Wife team.  We are young professionals and we have no children  (other than our dog Sophie!).

Both of us live and work in New Jersey. We plan on having a new post just about every day of the year, and will be focusing on personal finance and personal/professional development.  We are simply trying to figure our way in the world, pay down student loans, and develop into hardworking assets to society who can give a little back.  

Thanks for joining us on our journey to broke.

I like the concept of the blog – making it back to zero net worth! Enjoying the writing – Kudos to you both! :)

Thank goodness I’m not the only one in 6 figures worth of debt!

student debt is an investment which yields a higher salary. investments pay off, just takes time. good luck to you both.

I really like your blog. If makes you feel better, my husband and I have a combined net worth of negative $233,414.91 which equals 4 college degrees, 2 cars, 1 house, and 1 wedding. Funny, huh?

I love the tag line of your blog-”overeducated and underpaid”, such a true story for too many people! I’m not looking to make millions either, just want my school debt GONE!
