“In Financial Fitness, playing Defense means looking down and making sure you have the details of your current life right…” –Orrin Woodward
The steady flow of Financial Fitness success stories has been picking up speed lately. Thousands of families from across the globe have bought in to the idea that they, too, can free themselves from the Financial Matrix; and our hope is to be able to feature as many of these stories as we possibly can. The interesting thing about testimonies is that they are not just a theory or an opinion…they are real, live results happening in the lives of real, live people. Read on to capture the belief that can only be created through raw experience.
“After a little over a year and a half of applying the Financial Fitness principles in our lives, we have paid off over $70,000 in debt, reduced our monthly expenses by $1,000, and put 4 months of living expenses in the bank. This information hasn’t only changed our finances; it has changed every aspect of our lives for the better and will continue to do so. We are so thankful and blessed to have Financial Fitness in our lives.” -Christina Kelso
“We just sent the last payment on our mortgage and we are officially debt-free! We’re all really excited. Zach and Xander got to come to the bank with me and they were so excited to tell everyone what we were doing. I’m really glad that they get to learn the importance of Financial Fitness at the ages of 7 and 6. I would like to say ‘Thank you’ to our mentors for all of the help over the years, as well to all of the content creators for putting together a program that can help me and Brett–who, in college, thought that we would be in debt forever…and that we would both be working–and you helped us to change our path. Not only have we paid off our debt, but I get to stay at home with our four kids…I know we have many more dreams to reach, but we are excited to hit one of our goals!” -Jennifer Birschbach
“Just checked my mail and got a letter thanking me for paying off my student loan in full. So that’s one student loan paid off and one more to go. I’m excited about chasing down my debt and escaping the Financial Matrix. Fired up!” -Jessica Harvey
“So far, since we started using the Financial Fitness Program in November of 2014, we have decreased our total debt load by approximately $27,000 and that’s including the fact that we’ve been living on one salary since September of 2015. So we are very glad about that, and we keep our focus on clearing everything off. By building our Offense, we are confident that things will keep getting better.” -Charles & Cynthia LeBlanc
“I am so excited about the results occurring in my life because of the Financial Fitness Program. It helped me plan my attack against the Financial Matrix that I had fallen in to. In March of 2015, I realized that I needed to stop using my credit card for my life purchases, because sometimes–as much as I tried–there was still interest and late fees. Then I paid off my $6,000 mortgage and $15,000 auto loan balances. The only debt I had left was a $4,000 home equity loan, and I wanted to start saving money and eventually put 10% of my monthly income in savings. Then the company that I worked for the last 16 years decided to restructure the office–forcing us to learn a whole new type of work that we had only touched on about 5% of the time in our present workload…This stress started causing health issues for me, so in October of 2015, with much prayer, I handed in resignation and retirement papers, and by the beginning of 2016, paid off the home equity loan, added $5,000 and 10% of my income to savings. As of January 26, 2016, I was able to retire debt free. I’m now financially free, debt free, and on the Offense! Thank you!” -Elaine Stanisch
“For anybody that’s going through the Financial Fitness Program or for those who are just getting started, it’s going to take time…it’s going to take effort…but it’s fun! Going through the Financial Fitness Program is worth it. It took 2 years, but me and Jordan–going through the Financial Fitness Program and listening to our mentors–we were able to eliminate $191,000 of debt in the last 2 years. We are super excited about that. You may say, ‘That’s a long time’, but man it is worth it! And for the rest of our lives, those principles that we’ve learned are things that we won’t forget, and we definitely won’t be getting back into debt. Anything that has the results that you want is going to take a little bit of time, but it’s WORTH IT!” -Jeremy Louder
“I was able to buy my van in cash. I’m so super pumped! This is the first vehicle that I’ve actually done this–where it’s completely paid off right off the bat. The Financial Fitness Program is really working and I can’t wait to see where it’s going to take me from here!” -Olivia Simon
“Through the information that we’ve learned from the Financial Fitness Program, we were able to pay off 4 student loans and 2 car loans equalling $18,874, leaving us with our mortgage and 2 credit cards at 0% interest. Financial Freedom, here we come!” -Ben Grabill
“I’m super excited because the Financial Fitness principles have helped my husband and I. We applied the principles of the Defense and we were able to buy 12 acres of land, build a house–completely debt free with no loans and no mortgage. We moved in last year right before finalizing the adoption of 4 kids. Then we continued to apply the principles of the Offense over the course of the year. I had a baby two days before my 40th birthday and a grandson just two months later. My oldest daughter is also using the Offense principles and through that, yesterday I was able to pay off $17,000 of consumer debt. We are so totally blessed by this program. The Financial Fitness Program is for everyone and it has totally changed our lives and the lives of our children. It’s worth it! It’s life-changing!” -Jessica Teague
“We have been applying some of the Financial Fitness principles. Actually, we are currently listening to the Financial Fitness Audio Book; and within the last 2 months, my wife has paid off $12,000 in credit cards. She knocked off two credit cards and has one more to go. We’re also attacking our student loan debt, as well, so we’re extremely excited. This program is awesome. We’re on the path to being debt-free. Fired up!” -Antonio Jackson
“The Financial Fitness Program is amazing! We’ve always heard, ‘Dig your well before you get thirsty.’ and my goodness, we are so excited and grateful that we did do that. Over a year and a half ago, we put our noses to the grindstone and we really got competitive and sharpened our pencil on our spreadsheet for a tight budget. Within a year and a half, we were able to erase $60,000 of consumer debt, and since then, it’s been such a relief. We actually finished it up this month…and we just love it! We are never ever going to get back into debt. Praise God for this! It’s time to share this with everyone. The feeling we get from being debt-free is amazing!” -Chris & Aisha Gillette
“We just finished paying off thousands of dollars of debt because of what we’ve learned with the Financial Fitness class. And, as you know, I’ve been laid off for 4 weeks, so paying off a big debt like that was really fun. It was almost all of our non-mortgage debt, and we’re so excited!” -Ken Chase
“I am so excited for Michael Nasche. This guy is runnin’ and gunnin’ for the Financial Fitness Sales Contest, and he is a veteran of the US Army. I’m just so proud of this guy. He went out today and met with the Board of Directors of a Veterans Outreach program, where they provide financial aid and assistance to veterans in need…to help them get back on their feet when they’re coming back from being in the conflict of serving our country. And it’s just really awesome to watch what he’s done with this group. The thing that I’m really excited about is that these guys are all going to be getting the Financial Fitness Program. Michael was able to get this organization to put in their bylaws that any veteran coming to solicit financial aid has to take the Financial Fitness Program. That’s just their policy now…effective today!” -Micah Kramer
“The year before we started a business, we paid the IRS about $2,000. Last year–our first year filing taxes as small business owners–we were able to get a $3,000 and some change return on our taxes. This year we filed our taxes with our financial advisor and we will receive a $14,200 check back from the government because of our business. We were able to use the Financial Fitness Track and Save and plug in our numbers for the year, and our advisor told us that it is his most favorite program of all. In addition to that, we were able to trade a Financial Fitness Pack for our fees for our tax preparation last year. Now our advisor has gone through it and is putting together a meeting for us with some of his other clients so that we can walk them through the Financial Fitness Program and show them what it has done for us.” -Shayna Sunderland
From every background imaginable, people are experiencing what a shift in their thinking can really do when it comes to their personal finances. The Financial Fitness Program is a light of direction in a darkening world for anyone that would reach out and grab it and apply its principles. We are so proud of each of the above individuals and families that have had the courage to go against the status quo and escape the Financial Matrix!
