Here's What People Are Saying
I wish I would have done this sooner! You can’t do this 50% and expect 100% of the results. [Ramsey+] helped my family see the damage we had done financially over the years and taught us that you are never in too deep to turn it around. These should be things that are taught to us in school, but sadly aren't. I can’t wait to see the change in the next few months. Thank you, Dave, for sharing this life-changing resource with the world!
My daughter and I complete a little [JR1] [of Foundations] each day, and we’ve had some great discussions about money and what we have done right and not so well as adults ourselves. It has been awesome! I feel like I’m really setting her up for success at an early age! I wish my parents had done the same.
When I signed my husband and myself up for [Financial Peace University], he seemed skeptical. But during the course of the class, he agreed that it was worth it. Neither of us had been shown how to budget, save or even balance a checkbook when we were young. This has set us on the right path, now using a number of Ramsey’s tools to help keep us on track and working on paying off our debts. The BabySteps tool helps us visualize how we’re progressing through paying off our debt, which in turn keeps us engaged and helps keep us from being discouraged.
My 16-year-old was kind of "meh" at first because he thought [Foundations in Personal Finance] would be like homework. Then he got to the section on compound interest . . . and now he is on fire!
You are never too old to learn how to properly manage your money. [Financial Peace University] taught us how to work together as a couple and how to be disciplined about our spending. You don’t have to eat bologna sandwiches—just learn how to direct your spending while still enjoying life!
Dan & Elizabeth
I purchased [Foundations in Personal Finance] for my high schooler, and he’s loving the class. It’s engaging and entertaining and he enjoys going through the lessons. He’s learning all the things about finances I wish I learned at his age.
