My wife and I have been applying the Financial Fitness Program for a while now and we just had a major victory. We were able to pay off a $12K student loan. By paying off that student loan, it saved us $11,466 in interest!! That loan would have taken 172 more months to pay off if we were just making the minimum payment. By applying the principles of the Financial Fitness Program, we were able to save up enough money to write a check and pay it off completely and save ourselves all of that interest. Fired up!

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!!
