Dave Ramsey Show Live in Raleigh

Last weekend was a blast! Part of that was getting to hear the Dave Ramsey Show Live here at the RBC! The Dave Ramsey Radio Host was amazing!

Financial Peace

It was a real treat to hear him live and let me tell you - Dave Ramsey is funny! He had us laughing so hard. And he is so practical too. Some things we are right on track for and others we needed to hear it from him.

Loved his Baby Steps:

1) Save $1,000 for an Emergency Fund;

2) Pay off all debt using the Debt Snowball;

3) Have 3 to 6 months Expenses in Savings;

4) Invest 15% of Household Income into Roth IRAs and pre-tax Retirement;

5) College funding for children;

6) Pay off home early; and

7) Build wealth and give.

He has many things to share and a ton of resources to help set and achieve your goals. Look forward to hearing how it is going for you all.

Are you a Financial Peace Graduate? How do you budget?

I loved the Financial Peace class. It's truly been life changing.

We definitely put our own spin on his plan, but our financial situation is a lot better because of the team work we now have after taking the class together.

The first few months were a little tense though while creating a new/better budget!

Love the baby steps... we need to work on this so much now that we have two stable jobs in place.

I would love to take his class.

I've heard good things about him. It's very educational to hear it from expert especially when it comes to financial planning. Was the event only for one day?
