On today’s show, we have a truly inspiring story to share. Leo and Faith were about to get married when they attended pre-marital counseling at their church. It was then that they were encouraged to sit down and get honest about their finances and their goals as they started a family together. In total, they realized they carried over $211,000 worth of debt — a combination of both student loans and credit card debt.

Rather than give up, they rallied and made a plan to aggressively tackle their debt in the summer of 2017. Faith, a nurse practitioner, took on a part-time job working overnight 5 or 6 days a week. Leo, an occupational therapist, also worked a part-time job in addition to his 9 to 5.

As of May 2018, they successfully paid down $100,000.

They shared their story on today’s show. Tune in and hit us up on Twitter or Instagram let us know what you think about their story!
