Check out this amazing success story I received from Julian Smith who decided to take action and apply the strategies in Debt Free For Life to change his life forever. It’s stories like this that keep me doing what I do and I hope inspire you to better your own financial life.

“Two years ago while flying from California to Charleston, S. C.  I purchased David’s book Debt free for Life. This book ended up an epiphany for me. I had been sick with thyroid cancer for years undiagnosed and done a flip house and had charged up to $75,000 in debt. Spending thousand of dollars trying to find a cure for my illness and charging all this debt on a flip house in a bad economy. I was lost on how to get out of debt. After finding out what was wrong with me and getting the proper medical attention I was back on the track. Finding David’s book truly helped me get back in financial order.

I gathered all my credit cards and did a spread sheet and began paying off my debt using your DOLP system. This strategy paid off!  Now two year’s have passed and all my credit card debt is paid off ($75,000!!). This was a very difficult time in my life and I did not want my family to know the situation with my debt. The stress of all that debt is gone.
 
My next goal is to pay off all my mortgage debt. I plan on using David’s strategies on paying down the debt and get free of all that debt and enjoy the rest of my life. I would recommend that all college students read this book or anyone having financial problems. It is truly life changing. Last week I read the book for a third time and went to the chapter on web-sites and free money. Well! I found an old insurance policy that was not returned to me and found money for 14 friends and family members. I have told many friends and business associates about the book.  I look forward to meeting David in person one day to personally thank him for his help!

Thank you!

Julian Smith”

Farren’s Success Story….

I received an email from a reader named Farren. Farren was in the middle of taking my FinishRich Coaching Program, and he was writing to let me know that even though he hadn’t yet finished the course, his entire life had already completely changed. In less than eight months, he had gone from being stressed out over his finances to being out of credit card debt and on his way to a dream trip—seven weeks in Australia with his wife and two young sons.

As I read his email, it really hit me—it’s all about mindset and action. Farren’s mindset had changed, and as a result so had his actions.

Here’s the original email Farren sent me. I want you to read it because there’s so much in it to learn from. The fact is, you too can enjoy this type of success.

David, I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you once again for providing a great product/service and resource. I have listened to the CDs, watched the DVDs, read your book “Start Over, Finish Rich,” implemented the strategies, and changed my mindset! My wife, Amelia, implemented our latte factor and started looking at our overall expenses or consumables.  Things we could really get out of our life and stop spending money on right away and then… how can we also look at our different bills and cut them out.  The TV, the direct TV.  Things that are small, but as you add them up with the whole, it’s really a lot of money.

In less than a year, we’ve paid off $12,000 in American Express credit card debt, drastically reduced our monthly expenses, created a financial future with less stress, and – drum roll, please – the most exciting thing is that we are taking 7 weeks off for a family trip to Australia! (And I was able to pay cash for the $6k airfare!)  My wife and two boys age 5 and 8 years old are so excited.

 I took a picture of our little home savings jar that we used as a visual reminder for our kids and ourselves to see what we were saving for and how much we were saving. My kids are now excited to save. When they find a nickel or a penny – even change in my car – they run to the kitchen to put money into our “Australia Fund.”

Really life-changing stuff… so thanks to you and your team for their financial wisdom. These are troubled times for some, but with a plan and a coach, there’s nothing stopping you from the greatest life change you can do … understanding how to be financially free!

Cheers to you guys and “hi 5”! Thanks again!
Live your dream,
Farren W.

I wrote back to Farren immediately, telling him how amazing I thought his email was. “I love how you changed your mindset, took action and involved your family!” I wrote him. “You are an amazing example of how quickly you can get out of debt and start LIVING YOUR DREAMS. Nearly two months in Australia—sounds incredible!”

Farren’s response was as inspiring as his first note

We have just barely implemented your systems and still have made significant changes and progress. But it’s really like you said—it’s all about mindset and action. If you are married, you really have to have a “come to Jesus” meeting with your significant other. Look at ways you are both wasting money, create a goal, and go after it. A visual reminder like the jar in our kitchen also really helps. And if you can get the kids involved and excited, that can make all of the difference.

Farren’s story touches me for many reasons—and maybe it touches you, too.

Even though Farren was in debt, he was still willing to invest in himself to learn more about handling money and building wealth. With the benefit of what he learned, he changed his mindset and he took action. He’d didn’t over-think it—he just got going. He also involved his whole family in his dream of being debt free. He sat down with his wife and had the hard talk about looking for ways to cut back on spending. Then they created a visual aid (the money jar) to help them save money—and they got their kids to participate. As a result of all this, in just eight months, Farren was able to pay off a $12,000 credit card debt—and on top of that save enough to be able to pay cash for $6,000 in plane tickets and take his family on a two-month dream trip to Australia.

I mean, really—it’s a story that can make you jealous. Here’s a couple in debt, struggling to keep their heads above water, and in less than a year their whole life is turned around—simply as a result of changing their mindset and taking action (plus a little bit of coaching and education).

 IF FARREN CAN DO IT, WHY CAN’T YOU?
