Our Timeline


Amanda and Engel are impacted financially when Engel lost his job...

...Engel has a miraculous encounter. He was laying on the living room rug with his 3 year old son, looking at an interview, sad and stressed. After listening to Rabbi Daniel Lapin and Benny Hinn he bought the book which they spoke about,  Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money


After reading Thou Shall Prosper, Engel read another book, The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey

With the help of Dave Ramsey's plan Amanda and Engel applied the baby steps to become debt free of $217,000 in 11 months. In November 2013, Engel attended Entreleadership in Tennessee where he met Dave Ramsey in person

We're Debt Free

Amanda and Engel have told their story on many stages of how challenging it was to become debt free. Initially Amanda was very reluctant. She was working long shifts at the hospital, a high stressed environment. They had been married for five years and in love altogether for 12 years. Within that time Engel was never short of entrepreneurial ideas

Amanda visited the US for the first time with Engel. They became Certified Financial Coaches through Ramsey Solutions. 

Certified Financial Coaches

Wanting to learn more on financial coaching Amanda and Engel attended Financial Coaching Master Series in Tennessee. Interestingly, when it was time to return home, flights were grounded because of a major winter storm. They were determined to get home. Engel decided that he and Amanda would drive to Florida. This would go down as their first road trip adventure, together. Engel drove for 12 hours. The longest he had ever driven in his life.
