Bankruptcy can be a great tool to help give someone a fresh start and relief from overwhelming debt. However, it is very often misunderstood - I have numerous shows dealing with the topic, including debunking myths surrounding bankruptcy.
Today's show is an interview I did with Credit Kristi, who you can hear on my previous episode 247. Kristi started her own podcast called Credit Coaching by Kristi, and you can find it wherever you are listening to this show. Kristi interviews me for her show about the basics of bankruptcy and was so generous to allow me to use the audio for this episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast.
If you have questions about credit, definitely check out Kristi's show - Credit Coaching by Kristi.

Do you have a student loan owned by the Department of Education (rather than a private student loan) AND a finding of disability by the Social Security Administration? There's been a change in the law to link those two things to provide a disability discharge of your student loan!
On this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, we are happy to have returning guest Christie Arkovich to talk about discharging student loans for people with disabilities. Under the new law, a finding of total permanent disability (TPD) by the Social Security Administration or the Department of Education can lead to a discharge of your student loan debt.
Christie has been helping people eliminate or negotiate student loans for years and has become one of the top attorneys in this area. You can hear Christie on previous Crushing Debt episodes:

How would you react if you were car-jacked and kidnapped for three hours?
What lessons can you take from such an extremely stressful situation? And how can you apply those lessons to other stressful situations, especially financial stress?
How do you react when someone is suing you for money? When you are fearful of eviction, foreclosure or bankruptcy?
Today's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Lee Roebeck from Johannesburg, South Africa. Lee is a mindset coach who focuses on human potential and success.
You'll hear Lee tell his story and how he used his training and knowledge to help himself, and how he helps his clients, to deal with amazing stress events in their lives.
Lee and I talk about:
Certainly a carjacking or kidnapping is more life threatening than a foreclosure or eviction, but both are high-stress events that will impact you and your family. Lee provides some great information on dealing with high-stress situations, in the moment, to help you overcome any obstacle that you might face.
