After listening to my Listener Series episode with Amanda from Ottawa, David from Texas answered my call out to be on my podcast, and I’m so glad he did. I feel like his story is so relatable, and yet I don’t think I’ve ever interviewed anyone who paid off $40,000 in debt in only 14 months, then stuck to a cash-only diet for good after that.
I’m serious in that after listening to our conversation again, I kind of want to try to live off cash only for a month or two to see how many spending and savings are affected. I do try to use debit for all my day-to-day spending, but I do lean on my credit cards from time-to-time.
I hope you find this episode as inspiring as I did, but since David has so many good sound-bites, I’ve included a few gems below. Thanks again David for joining me on the podcast, and I mean it, you should start your own. Your voice and charm are gold!

It is possible, if you believe it’s possible…You have got to be focused and you have got to treat [paying down your debt] like it’s a life and death situation.
