On Tuesday, Carol and I were able to write our last check to a personal loan that we
had with a credit union. We are so excited about that because now all we have left
is our home mortgage. That means in the past 2.5 years we have eliminated $57,000
in credit card debt, 2 car loans, and the $15,000 personal loan. That’s the Financial
Fitness Program working at its best right there!
On August 24, 2016, we paid off our last debt. We are completely and totally debt
free! Three years ago, we were $5,281,000 in debt and facing bankruptcy. Then, two
weeks later, September 2013, Financial Fitness came into our lives. We’ve applied
what we’ve learned through the principles of the Financial Fitness Program - we
budgeted our money, we saved, and we paid off the loans with the income we made
through Tom’s regular work. All the while, we were reading, listening and associating
with precious people like our mentors and friends and as a result, we own everything--we don’t owe a
bank anything, so we are ecstatic!
