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!!
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.
