Dave Ramsey = My Hero.

The past couple of weeks I’ve been working on new services to offer as a life coach. What I’m most excited about is the idea of online seminars. Currently, I’m working on a 4 week seminar series. It will consist of a weekly webinar along with at home assignments. It will be the perfect opportunity for anyone looking for some information and motivation to start changing their life, but may feel too intimidated talking one-on-one with a life coach. It’s still early on in the development stage, but the plan is to host the first series in September. Stay tuned for updates.

In other news, I am a huge fan of Dave Ramsey. If you’ve never heard of him, you should take a look around Dave has taught me everything I know about being at peace with financial issues. His main crusade is to get people out of debt. If you’re bogged down and feel like you’ll never pay off student loans, car loans, credit cards, etc… you need to check out He teaches that getting out of debt is 99% behavior and only 1% math. Sure, consolidating debts to a lower interest rate can help, but the real momentum comes from changing your habits and living within your means. It’s all about delaying the purchase of your dream car until you have the money to pay for it, or working three jobs during the summers to pay for school instead of accepting debt as your only option. He’s also big on building wealth after you get out of debt. If you want to retire a multi-millionaire, you need to check out Seriously! Do it! I aspire to take his financial counselor course, but I don’t think he would approve of going into debt to do it. So, I’ll be saving my pennies.
