My husband DJ and I really started applying the principles of the Financial Fitness
Program in November of 2014. We started our debt snowball by selling a costly truck
and purchasing an old van for cash and applying that payment to the snowball. Then,
we decided to ramp things up and we sold a rental home and a duplex that we owned.
Using the equity from that, we paid off about $230,000 worth of debt and have the
lowest monthly expenses we have ever had in our marriage. We also have two months
of expenses saved up. Unfortunately, we still have a student loan and a credit card left, but with the
money and knowledge we now have, those debts will be gone before we know it!!
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.
