Today, we're chatting about Mortgage Freedom.

Eliminating the largest debt in your life … Owning your home outright.

If you’re reading this and you’re thinking, “Well … you always have a mortgage. That’s just something you need to pay forever. No one pays off their mortgage.”

Well, I have a guest today that completely disagrees with that statement.

Talaat McNeely joins me today on the show to discuss how he and his wife, Tai, paid off their $330,000 mortgage in just 5 years. Not only did they complete this impressive feat incredibly fast, but they did it on a single income.

What are we covering?

Talaat and I chat about:

  • How they paid off such a large amount in a short period of time
  • What mortgage freedom means for the McNeely family
  • How they are celebrating their mortgage freedom with the whole family

Tai and Talaat's story and their award-winning personal finance wisdom has been featured in major media outlets like MSN, USA Today and Business Insider. I'm honored to feature their success on the show today.

I hope it inspires you to win as well!


Marriage, Kids and Money, Andy Hill

Money Master of the Week

Jude from Connecticut just paid off $35,000 of debt in 11 months!

Jude African Style FI

When Jude learned he was going to become a father, he immediately started thinking about the future and how he could best protect his new child. Becoming debt free was at the top of his list!

His gazelle-like intensity was inspired by The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey (me too Jude!). Now that he's debt free, he's got his sights set on buying a home for his young family.
