Judy Thought Financial Freedom Was Impossible. She Was Wrong.

Unsuccessful small business owners know all too well the feeling of disillusionment and the continual drudgery of pouring money into a never-ending stack of debts.

Fifty-three-year-old Judy McFarlen, a veterinarian based in Alberta, has a work ethic rivaling an athlete’s. But she counted herself among the unsuccessful not too long ago, as she attempted to pick up the pieces from a failed business venture. While Judy’s commitment to paying debts was noble, she was down in the dumps about where her financial life was heading.

“You just get tired of struggling and trying to find ways to find ways to put money aside for you because you’re trying to pay back debt that it gets quite discouraging,” says Judy.

Judy paid back $100,000 over the course of six years, but it still wasn’t enough. Her motivation was waning, more and more, year after year. Finally, about a year ago, she hit a financial low and depression ensued.

Oddly, the timing couldn’t have been more serendipitous.

Discovering MindShift.money

While looking for some kind of financial solution to her debt, Judy discovered Mindshift.money’s Financially Fit Bootcamp program. She’d heard about similar “debt-free” programs, but something about the promise of a life of freedom gave her unexpected hope—without over promising anything.

Erin Martell is the Managing Editor of MindShift.money. She is the owner of Lane Change Media and a graduate of St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
