Do you believe becoming a professional requires getting into debt because of the additional education? Grab your popcorn and listen to this episode where our guest shares her experiences with all of this (and yes there is a reason why I’m saying you should grab your popcorn).
Unfortunately, many of us became aware of the importance of good credit as adults, don’t get me wrong — it’s never too late! We also have beliefs that simply aren’t true, like debt is unavoidable when pursuing a profession needing higher education.

Dr. Flores is a polymer chemist, author of a patent and of more than half a dozen peer-review publications. She became a podcaster with the launch of Latinx Can, a podcast highlighting the stories of Latinx professionals and the tips and tricks that helped them turn their dreams into reality.
