When we first figured out that we were scores of thousands of dollars poorer than the homeless man down the street, we had some generous friends who loaned us a CD set that would change the course of our financial lives. This was the set of lectures that comes with Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course.
Dave Ramsey has a great way of explaining the process of getting out of debt, making it simple, and motivating you to just do it already. His compassionate yet hard hitting, and smart yet funny lectures were just the tools we needed to get on the right track. After listening to them, we went from a trajectory of going $20,000 further into debt every year, to actually paying off about $20,000 a year (a $40,000 position change the first year) just by having a plan, being careful, and having our stewardship blessed abundantly by God. Thousands of other Ramsey fans have experienced the same.
We have long said that as soon as we were out of debt, we would love to help someone else as our friends helped us. So Dave (my husband) and I are hosting a giveaway to my blog readers of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University Online PLUS the 13-CD set (a $138.95 value.)* Scroll all the way down for the product description.
Whether you are way over your head in debt like we were, or you are a high school or college student who never wants to get there, or a couple starting out your marriage, or even if you have no debt at all and you know exactly how to handle your money, but you just know someone who could benefit from this, you are eligible to enter.
