In 2007, when I retired from the navy, my wife and I were $483,000 in debt. We knew
that once I retired we had to do something, so we started chipping away at it, but
it was like chopping down an oak tree with a baseball bat! We really didn’t have
any direction, we just had a goal. Then we were introduced to all of this amazing
information in the Financial Fitness Program, and we just started getting to work. In
fact, just last week, we wrote our last check for $1,800 which eliminated the very last
bit of that $483,000. It’s all gone!! We are so excited! It’s like having a new lease on life, and we cannot
wait to see how far we can go and how many people we can help with all of this wonderful information
that we have. God bless!
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!
