    His tips for others who are working to pay off big debt are:

    • Be aggressive. Paying just the minimum won’t do the job, he says. “If people can pay off a $35,000 car loan in five years, why do they just pay minimums on student loans? If you just pay the minimum, it will never go away.”
    • Automate it. Don’t give yourself the opportunity to spend money that is earmarked for debt. (Also don’t risk a late payment or oversight.)
    • Use windfalls. A birthday check, a bonus or a tax refund can help you reach your goals faster, he said.
