David, first I want to say thank you for the inspiration you give through your books. I am a truly a huge fan. I am a 32 year old single mom of an 11-year old son who was diagnosed last year with Progressive Hearing Loss and suffers from asthma in addition to being allergic to everything under the sun.
I read your book, Smart Women Finish Rich a few years ago and got really inspired to start taking control of my spending. I had a credit card for every store in the mall along with karate tuition and hospital bills just piling up. After really applying your DOLP system, I started feeling really good. I recently read The Automatic Millionaire and decided that it was time to really start making moves.
In May 2006, I decided to move in with my parents and start making my dreams reality. I attended the learning annex in NYC where you spoke and I was inspired even more to started writing everything down with a goal to buy my house by the end of this summer. I managed to pay off $45,000 in credit card debt, paid off my son\’s karate tuition and even saved for a down payment. I just closed on my first condo August 8th and cannot begin to tell you how excited I feel.
Thank you for the inspiration and guidance you provide.
