Success Story of the Week – The Keahi’s
“In January 2009 a friend of ours posted on Facebook. She asked if we wanted to be debt-free, and shared that she was hosting a 101 Financial presentation at her home. She said if we were interested we were invited to her home to listen. There we were introduced to 101 Financial.
I had never heard of 101 Financial or knew anything about what I was getting into. We sat down and listened to what the 101 Financial System had to offer, and decided that night to get on.
I was a bit scared not knowing what the future held for us, but I left it all in God’s hands. We started the 101 Financial System soon after.
By the next month, Michael was let go from his full time job. We were then left with only 1 income. That was also the time that there were absolutely no jobs available on Maui.
Michael was able to collect unemployment, but as we all know that lasts only so long. While collecting unemployment, we still had 2 car payments and a mortgage to pay. I paid off our 2 cars and continued to pay our mortgage. It was a bit of a struggle, but I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for 101, Michael & I would be house-less, homeless, divorced, and the list goes on.
In late 2010, I was involved with the American Heart Association where I met a wonderful person, Louise Auwae. We talked and within our conversation 101 Financial came up. I told her I was also on the 101 Financial System, but I was struggling a bit with it and did not know who to turn to.
I told Louise I was ashamed, and she replied “Don’t be ashamed.” She quickly introduced me to Rochelle who invited me to a 101 refresher. I was still ashamed when I went to the refresher, not knowing Rochelle, but I let my pride go. I was relieved to know that there was hope and what Louise told me; “don’t be ashamed.” She was really talking from the heart.
In August 2011, I took over my mom’s business of 30 years so she could retire, and enjoy her passion of raising her horses in the country. It’s been a busy year but I have a plan. And that plan is to pay of my mortgage in the next 2 years.
I can’t thank Alan, Rochelle and Earl enough for the time and dedication they have put into making our lives better, and helping us find Financial Peace of Mind in our lives. We are truly blessed to have them and the rest of the 101 Ohana in our lives.”
