Personal finance expert Kendall Berry paid off over $50,000 in debt in one year and managed to save over $25,000 in that same year. Yeah, she’s basically a get out of debt hero, which is why we recently sat down with her on Instagram Live to talk about all things debt and money.

Interestingly, we found that she doesn’t regret any of her past personal finance mistakes. In fact, we found that she actually considers her past personal finance mistakes to be some of the best things that ever happened to her.

“If I hadn’t made mistakes with money, then I never would have been on a journey to pay off my mistakes and I never would have become a financial coach which is something that I am so incredibly passionate about,” Berry told us. “Sometimes the bad things that happen in our life can lead to something wonderful…. You’ll never hear me say ‘everything happens for a reason.’ I think crappy things happen for no reason at all but I do think that good can come from them.”

Watch Berry talk about this and so much more including which bills to prioritize, when to consider bankruptcy, and Suze Orman below. You aren’t going to want to miss her advice.
