It was not easy, nor was it fun, but it was the best thing we've ever done and it feels GREAT to be on the other side!

It CAN be done!

Yes, it can. DW and I paid off almost $90K in debts in two and a half years. We now OWN our home and are within $50K of owning our business and property valued at somewhere in the $500K range.

It takes perserverence. It takes determination. It takes motivation.

Most of all, it takes a change of attitude.

Once you look at yourself in the mirror and say, YOU ARE GETTING OUT OF DEBT, DA*NIT!!! you are more than halfway to becomming debt free.

Good luck and STAY MOTIVATED!!!
