A few years ago, J.D. Roth was overextended on a mortgage he couldn’t afford.
He was unhappy. He was overweight. And he had $35,000 in consumer debt.
Then he turned his life around. He paid off every penny of his consumer debt. He began exercising and eating healthier foods. And he detailed all of this in a blog called Get Rich Slowly, which quickly became one of the largest personal finance websites in the world.
J.D. sold Get Rich Slowly for an undisclosed sum. (You’ll hear hints in the podcast that he sold it for millions). He walked away with enough money to be financially independent for the rest of his life.
How does transitioning from debt to financial independence change someone? What lessons can we learn from his experience?
In today’s episode, J.D. shares that journey.
