I want to meet with Dave Ramsey

Dave Ramsey is one of my financial heroes!

It was a book that Dave Ramsey wrote that helped position me to truly pursue financial freedom.

The name of the book?  Financial Peace, Revisited

Jenn and I became debt-free in 14 months by learning the most powerful word in the English language – NO!  The experience birthed a passion in me to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances!  So much so that I left corporate America and negotiated myself a massive pay cut to do so.  Don't feel sorry for me!!! I LOVE what I do and I no longer have to work for a living!  I am on a CRUSADE!

Part of this CRUSADE must be to meet with Dave Ramsey.  I would love to be able to meet one-on-one with Dave Ramsey to obtain mentoring and to be able to learn from him!

Some questions I will ask Dave when I meet with him are:

  • How do you balance family with your work?  The opportunities are endless at this point to do something other than go home to your family – what helps keep your family the highest priority?
  • You wrote your first book, type-set it yourself, and had it self-published.  What did you learn from that process?
  • You are in a field that can be emotionally draining.  What keeps the passion high for what you do?
  • What do you look for when hiring a new employee?  What are the absolute MUST-HAVES?
  • Has your mission/vision changed since you started?  How has it changed and what helped you figure this out?

Dave – I want to meet with you!  Tell me when and where.  I'll be there, buy the lunch and ask all the questions!

    Are you debt free? or debt free but the house?

    How did you and Jenn do it in 14 months? did you pay extra on each bill? How much debt were you in? Did you sell any cars or deliver pizza at night?

    Joe is still laid up with his life experience so I thought I would answer your questions. We are debt free except our house and are working on that. What we did was read Dave’s book, cut up the credit card and do a budget. We drew a line and said no more debt. We are tired of paying off credit cards. We paid off ove $15,000. The real key was to do a budget together EVERY month and any extra money we could find we put it on debt. We started with the smallest bill and worked our way down. We celebrated our victories. We did not sell anything or do extra jobs. We just made our money behave. What an awesome feeling to be on this side of that debt. I can’t wait to pay off our house. It will feel even more awesome!

    Hope this helps! You can do it!

    Yes! I still have student loans to pay off. I’ve been left credit cards alone. They are so deceptive. I hope by Dec. 2008 We will be debt free but the house. And we will never go that route of debt again !!

    Joe and Dave are both my heros! They are both on the same crusade. I hope that you and Dave both meet on a caffeine free day because the energy will explode with you both in the room!
