Success Stories

Here is a success story from a reader of who has completed the Financial Freedom Experience.  She provided this update the other day.

Just paid off CC #1.  Capital One no longer has any chains on me!!! Chase and Citi will be gone in less than 6 months now.  They are combined at $591.70 still over my head. One more credit card to pay off and then my car is on its way to being owned by me and not someone else!!! I'm so jacked up right now.  I can't even say thanks enough for what you have done through your classes.  I was once defined by my debt, and I didn't know what it would ever be like to have none of it.  I'm so excited that I'm getting one step closer to finding out.  Thanks again!

Here is another success story from a reader of

Just saying a BIG THANK YOU to you for giving me the courage and imparting wisdom to allow me to declare today as the first day that I am completely debt-free from all credit cards!  I managed, by the grace of God, to  pay off over $6,000 in debt in only 6 months. I cut out so much in order to accomplish this,realizing along the way that "stuff" is not even important!  Jesus is thedeal!  Thank you! Your life passion has given me a debt-free future!

If you were wondering …  You CAN do this!  Even if you are just embarking on your Debt Freedom March, keep reading this and other personal finance websites.  Read some great books on personal finances.  In I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. I share my family's Debt Freedom March story and then teach the exact tools that we used to achieve financial freedom.

    Joe, I think it is great what you are doing. Last year I had my IHHE moment when my car died and had “no way” (so I thought) of getting another. I had a friend “show me a way” … and now I’m on my way to debt freedom. I have a long way to go (May 2011) but I do have a car, my credit cards are being paid down.. I have had no new debt in 1 year and 2 months… wow… never thought that would happen! All because I opened up to somebody (like you) who could show me a way of getting out of the debt mess I was in. I would encourage anybody to just open up and let somebody help. I enjoy reading personal finance blogs (esp this one!) it helps keep me motivated. I read several PF books from the library (Joe yours isn’t there yet sorry!) a lot are basically the same but they didn’t cost me anything so if I just skimmed them it was ok. I was more open with my family and found out that my sister was also starting on a budget (from a church program!) and that my mother was close to loosing her house. (I hooked mother up with my friend so she’s now on her way as well) Wow.. didn’t intend for this to be so long. I just want to say … YOU CAN DO IT ! IT IS POSSIBLE! PLEASE REACH OUT AND LET SOMEBODY SHOW YOU THE WAY! IT IS EASIER THAN ONE MIGHT THINK!
