The 5 essential rules for managing debt

The last story I had published in 2015 appeared on the website of a big ass American bank: JPMorgan Chase (oooh, fancy). The story is a collaboration with Vox Creative and pegged to the spending season. It breaks down the basics of how to manage debt, from budgeting to picking up a side hustle. Seems easy enough to do, until one of my sources told me about his Halloween night working as a Lyft driver so he could make some extra cash to pay down his debt. He picked up some privileged white kids and endured as they complained about how boring their costumes were because they weren't allowed to be racist. Debt is rough.
