Exciting news from a coworker

Hi all, I at the beginning of the year, I had a new person from work ride along with me for some training. I had one of my financial books in the front seat, so she would have to move it to sit down. She asked me about it and I shared with her about FI. A couple of months later she told me that thanks to me she was getting out of debt and wanted to thank me.

TODAY SHE TOLD ME SHE PAID OFF 36K IN 6 MONTHS!

Must make you feel good to know you helped her, although clearly she was ready to learn. Good work!

Great job spreading the news! I have a couple of co-workers I have converted too -- helps to have folks around you who have the same vision.
