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!!
In the last 15 months, my wife Christina and I have been able to knock out $50,000 of debt, $40K of which came within the first year after going through the Financial Fitness Program. While we still have a ways to go with some student loans and our mortgage, it's reassuring to see the results and we have a plan be debt free in 5 years, compared to the 30 year plan we were on. The information we've learned has truly been life changing, and has had an impact far greater than anything else we could imagine. Between the information and the community of people we are involved with, we know we will be out of the Financial Matrix by the time we are 31 years old!
