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!
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!!
