At first we started going through the Financial Fitness Program principles loosely and we never recorded any of our results. But, eventually we decided to get completely and fully committed to the Financial Fitness Program and we found that we had $426 a month that the ‘Green Box’ saved us from spending. That monthly savings doesn't even include the amount of money that Alicia and I saved when we switched from eating fast food to actually buying groceries and meal planning at home. That number may be close to $700+ saved monthly, but we haven't crunched those numbers yet. Basically that $426 was wasteful spending outside of our meals. Now we have a testimony that we can share with others!
I've owned a traditional business since 2003. In 2014, one of my business partners handed me the Financial Fitness program and I began to listen to the audios in my car. As of 2017, my wife and I have paid off over $175,000 in debt, with the goal of totally paying off our home in the next 18 months. Getting rid of that debt has been great for our peace of mind, as well as our marriage! If you own any type of business, the Financial Fitness concepts will help you reduce costs and build your profit margins, and if you apply those same concepts to your household finances you will double your effectiveness. When your business is debt-free you'll have more options, and if your business volume is volatile you won't have the stress of debt payments if revenues go down. I would encourage anyone with debt to check out the Financial Fitness program. My wife and I will pay off our 4 bedroom home before my 45th birthday, and anyone can do what we did!
