Welcome new readers from the , and article. yes, my family was $50,000 in debt and we paid it off in less than 3 years. Check out this television segment for a few pointers on how you can get started yourself.
If you’ve been here long you know that my family was $50,000 in debt (actually it was closer to $60,000, but you get the idea) and paid it all off in 30 months, which is 2 1/2 years. When we committed to get out of debt in June 2006, we also committed to stay out of debt for the rest of our lives. Pretty radical, huh?
I get asked a lot of questions about how we did it and how others can get started. I hope to write a book at some point, but until then I will share what I can with you here on Watean. I’ve written some articles about it, and you can look through them here, but did a nice piece summarizing our story and pointing out some clear action items for you to get started.
Watch the that tells our story. Not only does this piece highlight our story and words of advice, but it is my husband Marco’s television debut and Victoria’s most prominent appearance, of which she’s quick to remind you.
If this piques your interest to hear the nuts and bolts of what to-do, stay tuned because I’m going to post a list of the trainings I am doing this spring through a variety of Community Ed programs. Be sure to sign up for one, because it will change your financial destiny. I am also available to speak to your organization, congregation or staff on how-to get out and stay out of debt forever. Email me to schedule a speaking engagement.
Your turn: After watching the video, what is one thing you are going to do right now to start getting out of debt?
