Who is Dave Ramsey?
Dave Ramsey’s story began when he started his first business at age 12. His dad understood the importance of working hard and earning money, so he encouraged Dave to do just that. Through his lawn mowing business, Ramsey learned the importance of having good customer service and staying true to your word.
After graduating high school, Dave sat for and passed his Real Estate exam. Not long after, Dave married his wife, Sharon. They started out their lives together with nothing. The Ramseys started buying and selling real estate when Dave was in his early 20s, and before long they became millionaires.
Just a few years later, the banks that held the Ramsey’s notes were sold, and the new banks decided to call the notes. Although Dave and Sharon did all they could to pay back the notes, they weren’t able to come up with the total amount in time, and ended up having to file bankruptcy.
Soon after that, Dave and Sharon began finding out that God had something to say about managing money. They then started applying basic principles to their life like a budget, having an emergency fund, and living debt free. Dave now focuses his time on helping people win with money, which all begins with having hope. Through books like Finding Peace, The Total Money Makeover and his radio show, The Dave Ramsey Show, he’s able to answer questions and give encouragement to people in all different financial situations.
Ramsey started with nothing, became a millionaire, then lost it all. He unashamedly uses his story to help people believe that they can win.
