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!
I’m so excited! About 12-24 months ago, I had put a $500 car repair on a credit card,
started paying it down a little bit, then graduation rolled around and I didn’t save up
for graduation so I had to put those expenses on a credit card. The balance had been
plaguing me month after month after month. Well—NOT ANYMORE! A couple of days
ago, I paid off this credit card and I just feel so FREE! That’s another Harvey coming
out of the Financial Matrix. We’re doing it as a family. It is difficult to be different and
to be disciplined, but it is TOTALLY worth it to be chipping away at my debt. I have a plan to be out of the
Financial Matrix within the next couple of years (before I’m 30) and I am so excited!! I don’t even know
how to express this because it is not the norm for my family.
