Tracy and I have been married for 20 years, and during that time, we have always
carried some form of debt. At one point in our marriage, we found ourselves being
obligated to 20+ creditors and about $40,000+ in debt outside of our mortgage. But
because we decided to utilize the Financial Fitness Program and apply its principles,
we have been able to eliminate seven of the last eight creditors and the $25,000 that
we still had remaining from the original $40,000. However, we didn’t do that without
challenges; we had to buy a new car, we had to pay over $1,000 in home repairs, Tracy and I both had
medical outpatient surgeries that we had to pay as well. But if it were not for our coaches and mentors,
Tracy and I would have probably spent our entire life carrying that debt. We would have been stuck
square in the Financial Matrix; but now because of the Financial Fitness Program, we are able to spend
the rest of our lives chasing our dreams!
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!
