We were $10K in debt and we didn’t have any hope for our financial future; we also weren’t on the same page financially as a couple. As we started going through the Financial Fitness Program, we were inspired to start applying the new information into our lives. After going through the ‘Green Box’, we found around $700 extra to invest in ourselves and our business, and have been able to save 10% of our income. Right now we are debt free! Also, by next month we will have our emergency fund complete. Without the information from the Green Box, we would have been trapped in the Financial Matrix forever.

My husband DJ and I really started applying the principles of the Financial Fitness
Program in November of 2014. We started our debt snowball by selling a costly truck
and purchasing an old van for cash and applying that payment to the snowball. Then,
we decided to ramp things up and we sold a rental home and a duplex that we owned.
Using the equity from that, we paid off about $230,000 worth of debt and have the
lowest monthly expenses we have ever had in our marriage. We also have two months
of expenses saved up. Unfortunately, we still have a student loan and a credit card left, but with the
money and knowledge we now have, those debts will be gone before we know it!!
