It Was Hard for Us to Get Out of Debt
Are you buried in debt searching for ways to get out of debt? This was us once. Are you concerned this year’s resolution will end up like last year’s? This was us year after year. Have you struggled and failed before to get out of debt? Us, too, and that’s why we wrote this book!
We know how you feel. We understand the frustration and anger that debt causes. John was buried in $30,000 of credit card debt for seven years. David had $21,000 of debt for 17 years. We were as angry and frustrated as anyone.
Looking at our credit card statements upset us. Making minimum payments made us feel like cheaters. Receiving late fees and insufficient funds fees made us feel like failures. Wondering why we couldn’t achieve our financial goals despite our income confused us.
Our Commitment to Get Out of Debt
It was 11 years ago when we were living as a couple in a basement apartment that we finally said, “Enough is enough!” We said, “We must change our circumstances. We can change our circumstances.” We made the commitment to get out of debt.
We repeated what worked and learned from our mistakes. We analyzed and re-analyzed our finances. We applied all the practical and theoretical knowledge we had from our combined tenure of 21 years in financial services. We documented everything we did and put what we learned into a book.

A Glimpse Inside 4
Since we published 4, we’ve done several interviews, including Build a Bigger Life with Adam Carroll. Adam has spoken all over the world about money, including TedX in London.
Adam asked us to share the four principles. We said:
- Be Money Conscious: Understanding where, why and how you’re spending is critical to controlling your finances.
- Cash Is King: Credit cards too often let us live beyond our means and be unconscious of our spending.
- Have a Financial Plan: This is critical to staying on track.
- Live Below Your Means: Doing otherwise always leads to financial failure.
