A little more about Greg
Wholeness and balance. I teach people money doesn’t have to be a mystery. Most people can be totally debt free in 5 to 7 years on average using just 10% of their net income. They just don’t know it yet.

Our online podcast: The main purpose is to educate folks on the basics of money, how the financial system really works, and how to get started on their road to financial freedom. Sometimes I interview people to bring variety and other points of view to listeners.

After 8 years in residential mortgage lending I took a break, drove as a courier, then returned to mortgage banking 3 years later. Debt isn’t a bad thing. I try to help people make informed choices and understand the long term impact of their financial decisions.

I’m a husband and my wife and I live with Gabby our cocker spaniel.  My wife is a retired banker with over 35 yrs. experience. Her mom was a  banking veteran and her grandfather owned a small town bank in the 1960’s.

Three of my family members own their homes free & clear.  You can too.

Mission Statement
We teach financial wellness and are untiring ambassadors for financial literacy. Empowering people by reminding them of their potential and greatness is our soul purpose.

Money doesn’t have to be a mystery. We exist to bring this message to all willing to learn. By integrating the worldly and spiritual perceptions of money, we suggest that balance between the two can be a key to wholeness.

Working with me

1. One one one coaching with people to get their finances in order and under control quickly.
2. Public speaking for businesses & organizations.
3. Being a guest for internet radio show interviews.

“I was introduced to Debt Shepherd via Robert Wesley Branch’s appearance on Debt Shepherd Radio (DSR). I found the show truly inspiring so I checked out DSR’s archives and discovered I, too, can begin the journey of getting out of debt. Wallowing in a mire of fear and worry wasn’t going to help my situation. I reached out to Greg and during the time between our consultation and coaching session, I eliminated not only three loans from friends, but even got rid of the payday loan.

I was very afraid to see the actual numbers but working with Greg is helping me to see the bigger picture and that I will be debt-free much sooner than my fears convinced me to believe. In a few days I will have eliminated another debt! I’m incredibly grateful to Greg for his wisdom, availability, and humor. This journey to becoming debt-free is teaching me so much about myself and it’s my belief money has a spiritual aspect. Do this for yourself…let Debt Shepherd start you on your journey.”

“Hi, Greg, I’ve been listening to your podcast for about the past year and the teachings you have taught me have awakened me. I discovered you when i was getting into debt. I had accumulated about 12k by the age of 22, (24 now), with about 4 years of establish credit. And then I took a hard look at things I had bought amounting to clothes, eating out, and buying items that did not better me.

Long story short I realized I needed change. I started researching and learning how to take care of myself financially and started making moves. As of right now my revolving balance is at $500 dollars. After paying my debt off I started to question my actions, my motives, my decision making, and just overall how I think.

Don’t mean to rant Greg, but I feel like you’re one of the only ones I can relate to now being that the majority of mid 20 year olds are caught up in living for the now.

Just want to thank you Greg. You reconfirmed by beliefs and values. I now better myself everyday. I read and question everything. Upon buying something I now ask myself, “By buying this does this better me?” I now understand.”

“I am 38 yrs. old, from Germany and have started listening to money advice since last autumn. Due to this advice I am working on getting debt free by the end of 2013, which is pretty much likely to happen if I continue like I do currently.

I am really thankful for the free advice that I get from my US resources. We don’t really have anything compatible in Germany and I am currently working on an e-book to get these tips out on the German market for the average consumer. So I give my thanks to you for your podcasts that I listen to when I commute to work or clean my apartment.”
Rebecca from Germany

“I Highly Recommend Greg if you’re serious about getting your financial life on track and need someone with Integrity that you can trust to guide you and your family to Debt Freedom! He has become a close personal friend and I reach out to him when I have a client who needs guidance in financial areas of their lives. His expertise on Rapid Debt Elimination is second to none! I would add him as a contact or reach out to him for more information on his Financial Freedom seminars which is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Here is an actual quote from one of my clients the day after I had Greg sit in with me to go over his financial situation: “I feel so different today, I am on such a high! I’m telling ya! I just lowered my car payment, upping my exemptions, and closed out my high yield account! Freedom here I come!” After our session my client told me he had a list of questions written down for Greg and never had to use them! Greg answered all of his questions and more. Greg gave him the clarity he needed to make a solid informed decision on the next step to his financial independence! You owe it to yourself to connect with Greg and see how he may be able to serve you!”
