We were $10K in debt and we didn’t have any hope for our financial future; we also weren’t on the same page financially as a couple. As we started going through the Financial Fitness Program, we were inspired to start applying the new information into our lives. After going through the ‘Green Box’, we found around $700 extra to invest in ourselves and our business, and have been able to save 10% of our income. Right now we are debt free! Also, by next month we will have our emergency fund complete. Without the information from the Green Box, we would have been trapped in the Financial Matrix forever.

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.
