I picked today’s quote – not because I am a big fan of budgeting – but because I am a big fan of Dave Ramsey. I wrote about my reluctance to spend my time budgeting a few weeks ago, but I realize it is an important bridge to financial independence for many people.
These are the folks that Dave Ramsey focuses on in his daily three hour radio broadcast (podcast also available daily). Many of the callers are just beginning their journey out of debt and budgeting is a key tool for them to take control of their finances. While I consider myself pretty on top of my finances, I still enjoy listening to the show and the simple, spot-on advice that Dave gives out.
The Ramsey show has partly inspired others to put on debt & saving workshops, like Brian at DebtDiscipline.com. Like Dave Ramsey, he shares his plans for digging his way out of a six-figure hole of debt. No matter where you are on your financial journey, I find it motivating to listen to others get the help they need. Even if it is just budgeting help!
