I am so excited about the Financial Fitness Program! We just wrote the final check
for one of our loans and so far in this process, that makes it over $24,000 worth of
consumer debt that we’ve been able to pay off just by applying the principles we’ve
learned. We still have a ways to go, but this has made such a dent in our debtreduction
program! I just want to encourage everybody to stick with it! Even if it’s
inch-by-inch, just by applying these principles, we’re beginning to see that the power
of compounding is working in our favor.
My wife and I started the Financial Fitness Program in January of 2014. At the time,
our debt totaled roughly $163,000 to include our home. Student loans, personal loans,
auto loans, mortgage, medical bills, credit cards, energy efficient windows, you name
it, we financed it! Fast forward to today, we have one medical bill and our mortgage
left. In two years, with the income we were already making and going through a job lay
off, we still managed to pay off $43,000 of debt!!! The principles work if you work them!
We have set a goal of being completely out of debt by August 10th, 2018! I LOVE telling people this story
to help them start their journey towards financial freedom!
