 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Slay the Dragon of Debt

With The Debt Shredder Team

by Gisele Rinaldi Siebold

From Old Order Amish farmers to professionals with advanced degrees, Paul Fisher and Harold Walters, The Debt Shredder Team, are changing lives in Central Pennsylvania. Since 2017, they’ve saved their clients more than $21 million in canceled interest.

Friends for more than 14 years, Fisher, who is Old Order Amish, noted the success that Walters was having with Debt Shredder in the “English” world. He approached him in 2017 and asked,“Would you help me get my people out of debt?”

“I told him, sure,” says Walters. “Honestly, I expected that there would be a couple of [Amish and Old Order Mennonite] “Plain” people interested and that would be the end of it. I never expected that our partnership would lead to us becoming the number one representative of the Debt Shredder in the U.S. for two consecutive years.”

The common thread they found amongst their clients from all walks of life was the lack of financial education in the United States. “The solution we offer using an award-winning, proven system is the world’s only financial GPS that teaches how to bank like a bank,” explains Fisher. “The concept of strategic payoff rather than merely paying extra to debt each month is profoundly shifting the way people move their money and cancel debt.”

A lifelong Lancaster resident, Fisher has watched family farms sold at auction for developments as well as the whole landscape of the Plain Community change. His sincere desire to help get his people out of debt reinforced Walters’ long-term goal of making a difference in people’s lives.

Originally from New York City, Walters has lived in Lancaster for more than 30 years. His financial services career began on Wall Street. He left Merrill Lynch in the early 2000s and recently closed his insurance agency. “We’ve changed more lives with the Debt Shredder than every other endeavor in which I’ve been engaged,” says Walters.

“Paul and I bring a rather unique perspective to our clients. We’ve lived most of the scenarios our clients live. Paul grew up on a farm, I grew up in the city. He knows the struggles of being “Plain” in the 21st Century, I know what it’s like to be an employee, self-employed and a business owner, which affords us the perspective of relating to almost any situation we encounter.”

“Call for your free financial analysis. We’ll show you how to reach your financial destination of zero debt, build true wealth and why it’s important to your mental, emotional and physical health as well as your financial health,” shares Fisher. 

“We believe that everyone deserves to live the life they dream,” avows Walters.
