In 2008 I walked across the graduation stage and into a mountain of student debt. With my spending habits, and lack of a well paying job, there was no way I could cover the bills that were piling up at my apartment. I was also receiving collection letter after collection letter for the thousands I had put on credit and never paid. I thought everyone had to get into debt to make any sort of money! So I spent like crazy… sadly most of it went to the bar!
I was dodging phone calls left and right from debt collectors. At that point in my life I was sure I would never be debt free. I never thought I would be able to grow the life that I have always wanted while having to pay the mountains of debt I was in.
When Eric and I decided to get married I searched and searched for a way to tell him that he was about to marry into piles of debt. Luckily he loved me enough to say “we will work on this together.”
Cut to 2017, 4.5 years in as a Beachbody Coach and as of January 1st I am 100% Debt Free (with the exception of our house).
On January 1st I paid my very last installment to my student debt!!!
I AM FREEEEEEEE from the collections calls, the endless collection letters! This is debt my family will never have to see again! The feeling is absolutely surreal. When we made the final payment I wiped tears from my eyes. That debt haunted me for 8 years! It brought me so much turmoil and panic.
In the process I was able to improve my credit to a point where we were able to buy a new home (last year) with an amazing interest rate!
It is an incredible feeling to be debt free, and it is even more incredible to teach my daughter about the importance of staying away from spending more than she can afford. To be able to look at my daughter when she is older and tell her “I paid that all off” is a dream come true!
Because we work so hard!
