I Met With Casey Graham Yesterday!

I had the privilege to hang out again with Casey Graham yesterday!

Casey Graham wears multiple hats at Mountain Lake Church pastored by Shaun Lovejoy in Cumming, Georgia.  Those hats include Guest Services and CFO, but he really has a heart for helping others with their personal finances!

In fact, he rivals me in his passion for helping people win with their money!

Our meeting started off so right when Casey called me and said, "Joe, I know that you don't have a Starbucks in Anderson so why don't I just meet you at the Starbucks right down the road from our church?"

So good!

From the first minute, we proceeded to rant and rave about helping others win with their personal finances!

Here are some ways that Casey challenged me:

  • Practicality.  He has been teaching a class at his church that is all about practicality.  He urges people to "Talk with your honey about money".  I love that!  I don't ever want to forget that all of the tools that I teach need to be PRACTICAL!
  • His passion for helping others.  There is NOTHING like being able to do exactly what God has called you to do.  I get to do that every single day!!!
  • Networking.  Casey has sought mentoring from great men who have huge talent and are willing to take time in their busy schedule to meet with Casey.  It makes me wonder if Dave Ramsey would be willing to meet with me quarterly!?!
  • Loyalty.  He loves Mountain Lake Church.  He loves Shaun Lovejoy.  He has been willing to do whatever it takes for the team to win.

Folks – I am here to tell you right now that God is using Casey and his skills to help people break free of the bondage of debt and win with money.  We met for 2 hours and 45 minutes, and it truly felt like 5 minutes!

I am PUMPED to know that Casey is part of the crusade to help others win with their finances!  If he keeps this up, he might achieve official www.JosephSangl.com Financial Hero status.

    I work with Casey on a regular basis AND have attended his last two seminars. The things you say about him are dead on!

    He is helping my family to “re-think” money!

    My family are members of Mountain Lake Church. Casey helped my wife and I get out of debt. He talked me out of financing another car in the process. I sure am glad he did, we are debt free now except for our house, which someday… will truly be ours. I believe most people could avoid the financial troubles they are in if they would just be content with what they have already. The pull of our culture though, tells us that what we have is not good enough.

    Casey passion is infectious. My wife and I now work with him in the Re-Think Money course as “table leaders”, helping attendees work through the process of creating a budget, and sharing our story.

    Take care,
