An exclusive interview with authors Daniel and Deborah Minteer by Daniel R. Murphy-

A few days ago we featured my review of a great new book on how ordinary people can eliminate debt and gain financial independence. Now read my exclusive interview with the authors:

Murphy: In your new book, Boiled Down Money Goo, Tips for Propelling Your Financial Future, you describe coming to the realization that continuing to live in debt is not a good idea. What turned that light on in your minds? What motivated you to make this big change?

Dan Minteer: I was a fool with sixty-five thousand dollars racked up on credit cards!  Plus, there were student loans, a car payment, a mortgage, no savings at all and layoffs looming at work.  So I was scared to say the least.  Respect for my upcoming marriage to Deborah was the motivation to rethink my entire outlook with money, which obviously was a disaster.

Deborah Minteer:  We had got engaged five months before we had the “money talk.”  When Dan told me how much debt he had “acquired,” I was stunned and seriously freaked out.  Our philosophies on money were radically different.  I had no debt and Dan was all about debt.   If Dan lost his job, we couldn’t make it on my paycheck.  This scared me enough to start talking about how to fix this problem.  Thankfully Dan was also ready to do the same…..
