Al's Money Story

Al knows what it feels like to make money, spend it, but then become frustrated because your work-life and money-life are out of balance. We’ve all been there at some point, but the question is, “How long do you plan to stay there?” 

Al's turning point came in 2007 when he and Lesia completed the process of buying their lives back for $150,000. This debt was the hill they climbed on their journey to financial freedom.

Meet Al & Lesia Riddick

Al & Lesia come from humble beginnings and were not taught much about personal finance while growing up. After getting married in 2002, they were determined to not let money create problems in their relationship. As a result, they created a simple and easy to follow plan to take control of their financial future. The tipping point came in 2007, at age 33, after paying off $150,000 in debt and setting themselves up for an easier path to building wealth.
