Do you think 18 months is a long time? If you knew you could be debt free in 18 months what would you do to get there?On this episode of the podcast Joanne Maye Wetzel shares how she and her husband paid off over $49,000 of debt in less than 18 months while only making between $50,000 - $60,000.We talked about how and why they chose to get aggressive with their debt (which consisted of student loans, a car note, a personal loan, medical bill and taxes) in order get it out of their lives as quickly as possible. For instance, Joanne donated her eggs (yup!), worked as a waitress and her husband delivered pizza.Joanne is currently a freelance makeup artist and hairstylist and is starting over in her career at the age of thirty.
