Justin Lukasavige from CoachRadio.tv joins us today to share how his family paid off $90,000 in debt in about 5 years. The $90,000 was paid off in two parts, the first $45,000 was over four years and the second $45,000 was paid off in just one year. The difference between the first $45K and the second $45K was having a plan to pay off the debt as soon as possible. It was hard work but both he and wife agree that it was worth it.
After paying off the debt, Justin was able to quit his high paying job as an airplane pilot and start Lukas Coaching where he was a financial coach. The business grew quickly and he then transitioned to being a small business coach. Getting up and working a job that you love and have a passion for is, “everything. If you don’t love what you are doing, you will never do it well enough to impact the world.” Justin now lives in Colorado with his family where he has built his own studio and now has a 45 foot commute to the office each day.
Justin does a few podcasts each week on his website and his “Your Story” episodes where he interviews other entrepreneurs are some of the inspiration behind the Debt Free Living Podcast. He does them because he likes to share others’ stories but he also does them to learn something new for himself.
Now that they are debt free, the long-term goals are to work with companies that are impacting the world as well as give to missions around the globe. Doing all of this while still having the debt would have been possible . . . but a lot more difficult and a lot more scary!
