How We Became Debt-free by Paying $99,102 in 5 Years as a Family of 4 in Southern California

by Sahirenys Pierce

In this conversation, my husband and I go over the large hurdles we had to confront during our debt-free journey. We paid off over $99,000 of debt over 5 years, but it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies. As a family of 4 living in expensive San Diego, California meant picking up a lot of side hustles. Our journey has many ups and downs, from family health problems to the struggles of entrepreneurship. This conversation is a true testament of God’s grace and our constant commitment to our family’s future. I hope this conversation helps you see the bigger value of being debt-free.

Now, I know this conversation is a lot longer than our previous conversations. But, we didn’t want to give you a watered-down version of our experiences during our debt-free journey. So we wanted to break down our life-changing journey to make it easier to follow.
