Helping Families Gain Financial Peace of Mind Is the Most Amazing Feeling
“I joined the 101 Financial Ohana in January 2009. With about $30k of consumer debt, I didn’t consider myself necessarily struggling but I certainly felt like I was fighting a losing battle. Loans and credit card debt, refinancing, making new debt, refinancing again… that endless cycle many of us get caught up in and can’t seem to get out of. I was absolutely sick and tired of living paycheck to paycheck and felt like I wasn’t making any progress, didn’t think I would ever get ahead. I was never able to save any money.
A fellow bible study sister invited me to attend a 101 Financial workshop. I was skeptical but I agreed to go. Prior to attending the workshop, I did all of my research about 101 Financial but I couldn’t find anything negative. I instead found all of the testimonies shared by happy families. I made up my mind at that very moment that this was something I not only really wanted, but needed to do. In four months, I had paid off 3 credit cards totaling close to $15,000 of debt by utilizing the innovative banking strategies that I learned from my personal instructors.
It had always been a dream of ours to take our kids on a vacation to Disneyland. For years we kept putting it off because we never could save up enough money to do so. We decided that it didn’t make sense to make a big loan just to take a vacation. At the beginning of the year before I became a 101 Financial student, we had given up on our dream vacation. We also had a vacant land loan, expecting four more years before we could pay it off. We paid off that loan 4 months after starting the system. Because we had less debt and no longer had that loan hanging over us, that summer our dream became a reality and we were able to take our family vacation to California for 3 weeks. Disneyland, Legoland, Universal studios, Sea World!
In July 2009 I had the honor of joining the 101 Financial Ohana as an instructor. I now had the opportunity to share with others what I was taught. To give my own students the same hope which I felt when I first became a student. For me, the best part of being an instructor is re-living the excitement over again with our students. Knowing that you’ve helped a family gain “financial peace of mind” is the most amazing feeling. No other job would give me so much joy. 101 Financial has been a blessing in my family’s life, and I can only hope to “pay it forward” and share this priceless knowledge with others.”
