Getting out of debt is hard. Getting out of debt with 3 kids under the age of 5 felt impossible.
Using a pencil and paper hasn’t helped. I can miss payments because I forget about them. I sometimes can’t read my own writing. Ah :(
I mean, it’s hard enough to be gazelle-intense to get out of debt. Why do I need the added frustration of making mistakes using a pencil and paper (and I make a lot) or using an excel spreadsheet?
Let's 1) Dive Into the 8 Reasons. 2) Go Through What We Did About It.
I am not sure if any of these resonated with you, but for me, if I was going to ditch pencil and paper or spreadsheet, I needed to find or help build something that is MUCH BETTER than these.
You could call me needy (when it comes to my debt payoff plan), but I really wanted to have something better than a pencil/paper and excel spreadsheet. Our lives are too short for bad products.
We are really working hard to encourage people through 1) Showing how their debt moves down in real-time. 2) Showing how their debt payoff date can get closer with extra payments. 3) Congradulating you when you finish all the action items!
I’ll be honest. It has thus far met my own criteria and expectations, although I will say that we still have a lot to build. Here’s what I am excited about next.
I am really excited to build out more features that are encouraging and help get you and me out of debt cheaper and faster.
The next thing on our docket is to allow you to view how far you’ve come. We built the app to show you how paying extra will move up your debt payoff date. We want you to be able to view more and see your progress.
We want it to be fun to share your progress with others, but some people may not like our color palettes, so we may try to allow you to edit your own images to post on your Instagram showing your progress. More to come on that.
