  1. That is so impressive! Just think about the impact that has on the economy and will have on charity. Think of the impact it has on large monster banks and credit card companies! Think of the impact it will have on their kids and THEIR kids. This makes me so hopeful. I found your blog a year ago in February and, although I didn’t actually sign up for the challenge, we have paid off $27,000 so far. Less than a year to go. It works and life is good!

  2. This is incredible and I am so proud to be part of this group who have worked incredibly hard to make 2016 a success for their financial health.
    Congrats to Jen on your Amazon Gift card win and a huge thank you Nichole for encouraging, motivating and leading this challenge – it really shows the value of accountability, focus and prioritisation on achieving financial goals. Bring on 2017!!

  3. YEAH we accomplished over a million dollars!!!

    Thank you again Nicole for organizing the challenge two years in a row. It has made a huge impact on my life and I’m guessing on the lives of all of the challengers.

    Congrats to Jen on winning the Amazon GC – the cherry on top!
