Here is a photo of my BFF Julie holding Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover << Shameless Amazon affiliate link below>> . This photo was taken in 2011. For those don’t know, I’m not a holiday gift giver. I don’t believe in giving gifts because it’s Christmas or your birthday or whatever but that’s a whole different blog. That year, I asked Julie to give me a gift. I asked her to read this book with an open mind and open heart about her financial situation. Julie is a smart girl with a good job but it never hurts to learn more – especially in regards to your finances, right? I’d say that it impacted her life in a very positive way so I’m a big believer in the teachings and process.
If you haven’t heard of Dave Ramsey, he is a speaker, author, and radio show host that talks about how to manage your money and live a debt free life while still giving generously and stress free. He is Christian and says his principles came from God and grandma. Dave Ramsey’s teachings are simple and are relevant no matter what stage of life you’re living or what religion you are! Now if you’re living off the grid in a society that is all barter and no cash, well then you probably aren’t reading my blog either : )
My latest thing is that I personally have re-read the Total Money Makeover last month and shared it with two girlfriends. We are having our book club of three. As you may have seen in my 2019 goals posting, we are looking to pay off our mortgage in the next five years which is a tenant of Dave Ramsey’s debt free living. Dave rewards those who become debt free with a chance to scream it out on his radio show.
And if my blog inspired you to take control of your finances, feel free to help me out. Here’s a shameless link to buy the book on Amazon. Remember if you buy it through my link, then I get some pennies!
