I Paid Off $40,000 of Debt and Am Now Free to Serve

Listen To The Full Interview:


Life doesn’t give you a pass on challenges when paying off debt.

I’ve said it once and it’ll be true 1000 times.

Actually, that’s exactly why dumping debt should be a priority. Because debt free or not, you will have trials in this life. It’s a sad commentary on life, but true.

Dealing with challenges without the burden of debt is huge! It really is.

Take this week’s guest on the Midday Money Show. He and his wife were going through life, doing what normal people do, until they hit a financial setback.

However, because they had made dumping debt a priority, that setback became a minor footnote in their debt free story. One that we can chuckle about whimsically because debt freedom gave them options.

You can have those options too.
