Who is Dave Ramsey?
Dave Ramsey is a personal-money-management expert and extremely popular national radio personality. By age 26 he had established a $4-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. Using the wisdom he gained, he rebuilt his financial life and now teaches others how to be responsible with their money, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, retire with dignity, and give generously to others.
Dave’s best-selling books include:
Dave also offers his life-changing message as host of a nationally-syndicated radio program, The Dave Ramsey Show, which is heard by 13 million listeners each week, on more than 600 radio stations and online venues throughout the United States.
Entrepreneur & Educator
Dave founded his company in 1992 to provide financial counseling to anyone who wants to better understand the principles of proper money management. Though he runs a multi-million dollar company with a nationally-recognized brand, he defines success by the number of lives that are changed through his message of hope.
Dave is also the creator of Financial Peace University (FPU), a 13-week program that helps people dump their debt, get control of their money, and learn new behaviors around money that are founded on commitment and accountability. To date, around 1 million people have attended one of Dave’s live events, and his high school and college educational materials are offered to help families teach children sound financial principles from an early age.
Dave earned his B.S. degree in Finance and Real Estate from the University of Tennessee.
