Jillian Johnsrud – Writer, Speaker, Coach

Fifteen years ago when Adam and I were married, we had $55,000 in debt (credit card, student loans, and medical debt). We also had big dreams. We wanted to take mini-retirements. We wanted to travel the world. And we wanted to adopt. We wanted financial freedom: to never worry about having the money to put food on the table or pay the bills again. I grew up poor, and never ever wanted to feel that way again. In the last 15 years, we paid off all our debt, traveled to 27 counties, lived abroad for 4 years, took 5 mini-retirements, adopted 4 kids (plus had 2 biological kids!). We paid cash for our very first home and bought 2 rental properties that we fixed up ourselves. We have served on boards of nonprofits, mentored kids from tough situations, and volunteered in all sorts of roles. At 32, I became financially independent. Now it’s my mission to help others build a life that perfectly lines up with their values, passion and purpose.
