Really, a whole year on that income? That’s very bad advice. If the guy can’t pay off a mere $9k in 2-3 months then something is seriously wrong. He should have that in pocket change or much more in savings. I simply don’t understand people these days. They’re making money hand over fist but can’t make ends meet. It’s all about MEEEEE! I’ve never made anywhere near that and still managed to pay off the mortgage way early and don’t owe anyone.
No, he was talking in general terms for anyone in that situation. Not specifically about that guy’s 9 grand in debt. Perhaps it should have been written more clearly.
I’ve listened to him talk to callers in similar situations dozens of times and, given those numbers, he would tell them to buckle down and pay it off in a few months.
