DALLAS, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dave Ramsey is an expert on helping people overcome bad financial situations because he's been there himself. In his mid-20s, Ramsey found himself going from making $250,000 in taxable income one year to making $6,000 and being forced to file for bankruptcy because of loans he couldn't pay back. From that day on, he made a promise to himself that he would never borrow money again.
Fast forward two decades and Ramsey is one of the top personal finance voices in the country. His well-known radio show gets over 12 million listeners per week on over 575 affiliates and other channels. He has seven best-selling books and has sold more than 10 million total copies. He also puts on numerous live events and conferences each year to teach people about how to have good money habits.
For those in the YouEconomy, Ramsey advises avoiding debt, learning to prioritize one's expenses, being intentional with one's spending and taking pride in running a business.
"The people who are winning financially. Is it because they had inordinately large incomes? Most, never. Less than 1 percent of millionaires were rock stars or athletes. Most of them just worked, put money in their 401(k), did not live with debt, didn't tinker with debt products and didn't play around with this stuff."
