Dave Ramsey Adventure

I have been fascinated with Dave Ramsey for over a year now, and frankly, too chicken to try his recommendations...until NOW. Dave Ramsey is an incredible motivational speaker who gives regular people, sensible advice on their finances. It's not rocket science, but it does require a lifestyle change....err, ummm, quite a painful lifestyle change! I'm not sure I can hang with Dave or his crowd, but I am determined to try! His advice moves me.

Last year, I read over 30 books on finances. I will probably be reviewing some of them on my blog in the future. One of those books was Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. He also does a 13 week class called Financial Peace University that I am taking right now. I am in week 2, so I will document my progress here!

If you're American and you have any sort of debt, read this book! It's a quick read and I highly recommend it!

Oh Lisa, My husband and I went through FPU last Jan/Feb and it changed our life. It is a miracle - we are debt free! We had had credit card debt our whole marriage and now we have even paid off our mortgage. I'm older than you (44) and wish we would have started this years ago. It's still a little hard to stay on budget, because for 20 years we never had one, but I'll have to share with you some time about how $$$ just poured in from very unexpected places - very exciting. I wish you the best.
