Bankrupt Commerical Agent Makes Good!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Financial Sanity!


Dave Ramsey has it going on and he will be discussing the current economy in a free event called Town Hall for Hope.  Dave Ramsey is an author of books on personal finance and host of a radio program.  Dave was a commercial Realtor who bankrupted himself, almost destroying his marriage in the process.  However, he decided to learn from successful millionaires and billionaires about financial success.  He discovered that most of them built and kept their wealth gradually, working regular jobs or careers.  Nothing spectacular.

 Dave developed a course, called Financial Peace University, which is offered at churches around the country.  My husband and I have enrolled in Financial Peace University.  We are taking the course at the Dexter United Methodist Church.  Though taught at a church, there has been no churchiness or proselytizing, which we appreciate. The course is a 13 week study of personal finances aimed at getting participants out of debt, onto a cash purchase basis, and then building wealth.

My husband and I have completed through week nine.  We and the facilitators of the class were laughing together about how we wished we had done this class when we were in our twenties (as has one of my nieces).  Well, better late than never.

As I said, Dave Ramsey will be discussing (via live video) the current economic crisis.  Join hundreds of thousands of people for a nationwide town hall meeting. Dave will discuss today's economy, how we got here, and where we're going. Plus, Dave will field questions. This will be Thursday, April 23, at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.   Locations on the west coast have the option of either a 5 or (delayed) 7 p.m. Pacific Time Start.  Check Dave’s website for a location near you.    


Locally, Town Hall for Hope will be hosted in the sanctuary of Dexter United Methodist Church.  The church is at 7643 W. Huron Drive, Dexter, Michigan.  They have two huge screens for video displays.  This event is open to everyone and is free.  I do encourage you to attend.

Sometimes I wish there really was a time machine so I could go back and put into practice what I know now. LOL
