Al & Becki Matthews: DEBT FREE!!!
On February 28, 2016, Al & Becki Matthews paid off the remaining balance of their house mortgage making them COMPLETELY debt free, having escaped the Financial Matrix. Below is their testimony and they give 100% credit to the financial wisdom they learned from the Financial Fitness Program. Really proud of Al & Becki because they APPLIED what they learned and achieved amazing results!!!
After utilizing the finance information and getting some real truth about how things work with the banks and their interest and easy loans that they are so eager to give to people, we had a rude awakening. We started to figure how much we were in debt and what the real cost in the end would be and it made us both sick. No one can get what they put into a house when they sell it later as long as they obtain it with a bank. We wrote down our goals, made several lists of what was making money and what wasn’t and started to focus on the end goal and sell everything not needed, paid off any debt we had and was left with only the house debt. On February 18th we made our last payment to Wells Fargo.
We went from 195,000.00 in debt with cards, farm equipment payments and house payments to 0. The finance pack helped us get things straight and the Life business helped us to communicate so that we were able to be on board together.
The biggest things we have learned is write down your ideas, talk about it, think about it wait and ask for the lord to help us do the right thing. It is amazing how things come together when principals and tools that are taught in Life are utilized. The most important tool we used was, set your end goal, then little goals, make the rewards simple and no matter what, Delay you gratification. In the end it is so worth it. Don’t play if you have to pay interest. If you think it is owed to you, think carefully. Are you debt free first.
Next is financially free with a residual income to get Al home from his job, so we can continue to help others everywhere.
