We started to implement the principles we were learning from the Financial Fitness Program and we are super excited to announce that we just wrote our last check that eliminated $55K of consumer debt in 9 months. We didn’t gain any additional income, we just gained a different way of thinking, prioritizing, and living. This debt elimination has decreased our outflow each month by 25%. We also (for the first time ever in our 16 yrs of marriage) have an emergency fund with 7 months preparation. Thank you so much to Financial Fitness for completely changing the course of our family’s future. We are looking forward to changing more family legacies with the Financial Fitness Program.

We love Financial Fitness! We came up with a mortgage pay-off challenge by coming up with a few steps. 1) The burning desire to become debt-free. We were sitting at $110K of debt (we’ve been able to cut that down to less than half now) and we are now within 12 months of being debt free! 2) Communication with your spouse. 3) Developing a budget and following the budget 4) We use a cash envelop system that helps us stick to our budget. 5) Patience. By following these steps we’ve been able to make a significant difference in both our relationship and our debt reduction.
