Since December of 2016, I have been following the Green Box principles and I’ve been on a strict budget as well as investing in my business and I have saved about 20% of my monthly income. I went from broke to tightwad and now I’m on my way to financial freedom!
I've owned a traditional business since 2003. In 2014, one of my business partners handed me the Financial Fitness program and I began to listen to the audios in my car. As of 2017, my wife and I have paid off over $175,000 in debt, with the goal of totally paying off our home in the next 18 months. Getting rid of that debt has been great for our peace of mind, as well as our marriage! If you own any type of business, the Financial Fitness concepts will help you reduce costs and build your profit margins, and if you apply those same concepts to your household finances you will double your effectiveness. When your business is debt-free you'll have more options, and if your business volume is volatile you won't have the stress of debt payments if revenues go down. I would encourage anyone with debt to check out the Financial Fitness program. My wife and I will pay off our 4 bedroom home before my 45th birthday, and anyone can do what we did!
