If you’re a first-time visitor here at WSL, welcome! For those of you that have been around awhile, you know that I specifically dedicated the entire month of January to the Debt Movement where we’re working together (and asking you to join in) on paying off $10,000,000 worth of DEBT!!

You may recall in my initial post about paying off your debt that I said January was going to be a month of educating and equipping you with information necessary to pay off your debt as quickly as possible. While the education will continue (that’s what we’re here for), it’s now time to implement everything you’ve learned. Starting RIGHT NOW, and continuing for the next 90 days, we’re going to try and pay off $10,000,000 worth of debt!

In case you’re new or you missed any of the articles that we’ve featured, here is a summary of everything you need to eliminate debt:

Tools to Help Eliminate Debt

Considering ReadyForZero is the official (and best) debt elimination tool for the Debt Movement, I made it a point to give you a detailed review of their site and explain precisely how they help you eliminate debt the fastest (and how they take steps to ensure all of your information is completely safe). With that said, you should have no apprehension in signing up and joining in on this MASSIVE challenge that over 1 THOUSAND people are embarking on.

So, if you haven’t joined, take a moment and click on the “JOIN US” button below, sign up for a FREE account with ReadyForZero and get started!


Still on the Fence?

If you’re still on the fence about joining in on the fun, then I’d encourage you to change your mind.

If you lack the motivation to eliminate your debt (for whatever reason), then check out a few posts I’ve recently written. For most of you, getting out of debt will be a difficult journey which is why you need a compelling reason to tackle the challenge. With that in mind, check out a post I wrote a few weeks back at Canadian Personal Finance about How Big Is Your “Why!”

I also wrote a post for the Debt Movement site about What Does It Mean to Be Debt Free. Considering we’ve been paying off $110,000 worth of debt for 6 years, having a purpose and goals in mind beyond our debt-bound slavery is what’s kept us plugging along.

For those of you that are on board: I SALUTE YOU!
Rock that debt and enjoy the journey!

  1. I love this whole thing. Not sure if my student loans will make the deadline, but here’s to hoping.

  2. Jose says:

    I’m on board and hope to see some debt paid off. I’ve got a long road to go on that but it’s gratifying to see that there are a lot of people out there with the same motivation as me, get rid of the debt!

  3. Once our house sells, we will pay off our mortgage and my wife’s credit cards. Nearly $18,000 worth of debt in under a week!

  4. I have been on board with the Debt Movement since it’s inception and I think it is awesome. I am not sure if we will be able to get to the $10 million, but I am hopeful.

    • Andy says:

      I’m with you on the $10M front. There is still a full 90 days left, so it’s possible. Even if it gets to a couple million, then that’s still great progress!

  5. Savvy Scot says:

    I look at the Debt Movement and think how amazing it could be if it went truly viral! Good work :)

    • Andy says:

      It would be fun to see it go “viral” but I think it’s been a success. While I’m not sure the $10M goal is possible, it’s exciting to see this many people take a step to gain control of their finances.

  6. Eddie says:

    It’s great to see many people on board. As someone who is consumer debt free, I can attest that it’s an amazing feeling.

  7. I think the Debt Movement sounds awesome, Andy. I am on it, kind’ve. We are paying off our house like crazy! Every payment is a huge burden lifted. As we paid off our consumer debt, the feeling was amazing. It’s great that so many people are on board.

    • Andy says:

      It’s nothing short of amazing that over 1800 people have already jumped on board! Good luck knocking out that mortgage; can you imagine being completely DEBT FREE?!
