Question:
I already have $30,000 worth of loans from my first degree. Should I keep working minimum wage dead end jobs to pay off this debt or work on getting into a field that will provide financial stability?

My advice:
- Continue working your current job and look for a new opportunity.
- Save money for the next 6 months to a year.
- Go back to school to launch a new career.
