Student Loan Planner started by accident. I wrote an article for Business Insider how my girlfriend and I are paying down $124,000 of student debt using my handy spreadsheet. I mentioned somewhere in the bottom of the piece that I had a part time student loan consulting business. At the time, I just helped out a couple friends who had questions about their student loans. After 300,000 page views on that one article, I decided to start Student Loan Planner on the belief that I could help thousands of people save thousands of dollars on their student loans through low cost consultations and sophisticated financial modeling. Learn what a consultation could do for you.
