    We took a Dave Ramsey “Baby Steps” class about 12 years ago. The class met once a week for 10 weeks at a church. Within 30 months of the end of the class, we were debt free. It was trying, but not that difficult. Willpower and achievement was our driving force and it was worth every minute of it. Watching these videos again are now entertaining because I know it works. Thank you Dave Ramsey for these videos. If you want to learn, you can accomplish anything.

    Investing done right has changed my perspective on how one can succeed in life. I’ve been able to clear my debt and go on to have surplus to take care of my family. Working multiple jobs for money isn’t the optimal way to attain financial freedom. Unfortunately, we find this out later in life. Great video.

    Almost debt free! 87k down to 27k in 2.5 years following Dave's plan! We get antsy wanting to move straight through to wealth building and we work this plan hard so it gets tough at times, but it really has relieved our stress with each passing month.

      Keep it up, don't know your age, but I was a mess in my twenties and got it all straightened out between 29-35. Now life is heaven, getting income up is the best option, it takes a little work but now is the time to job shop, even if it isn't your dream job....take that income and payoff your debt! Then you can go find your dream job, and pay won't have to be the deciding factor.

      @Joe Ward The biggest game changer for me was doing a budget to allocate my paycheck and stopped eating out and buying Starbucks. I was spending at least $100 per month on coffee and $260 on lunch per month. Another $100 every weekend for eating out.

    I was young but I remember the Carter days. Waiting in long lines for over two hours to fill up the car, eating too much Mac & Cheese and hot dogs and the like because that's all my parents could afford. I'm so grateful for Dave & Crew and all that they do to try and help change the narrative of people's lives. I'm hopeful that this country can once again be strong and self-sufficient.

    I am from India and agree with almost everything said here.I retired recently at 58 and have zero debt and a net worth of just under 2 M USD.Currently I save almost 60 percent of my after tax income and need only about 15 percent for a comfortable existence. I am a CPA by training and have a good understanding of how money works.And the icing on the cake is that in India almost everything is atleast two thirds less expensive than in the US.

      @rimmel10 I guess it is equivalent to about 8 M in the USA if PPP is the yardstick. More than enough for this lifetime , especially because I may have about 15 more years left at best. Hope to leave a sizeable chunk to my only daughter who is now 30 years old.

      Sounds good as a start. But owning different kinds of stocks is not enough for true diversification.
      Real estate and foreign currencies, are at least as important. In particular, owning most of one's net worth in the US -- including stocks and bonds denominated in the dying US dollar -- is a recipe for disaster.
      Get most of your savings out of the USD and out of the US if you don't want to go down with the ship. The US is finished.
      Russian Rubles, Chinese Yuan, and lesser-known currencices like Georgian Lari are prudent places to stow a bit of your savings instead of keeping them all in dollars. (Imagine if you had bought rubles when the US and its lackeys first imposed the "Big scary sanctions" (LOL) against Russia and the ruble briefly plummeted, as my wife and I did. You'd be sitting on a nice pile of dollars now if you bought at 130-plus rubles to the dollar and then converted those rubles back at 60-70/dollar.
      Better yet, keep the rubles and buy more, given the likely divergent trajectories of the two countries: Russia surviving and the US deteriorating badly until its collapse.

    individual stocks have been what has generated a good part of profits to my portfolio, I invested 50K in a diverse portfolio of stocks, ETFs, grade bonds through an investment advisor & made about 260k in a couple of months, but guess what? I re-invested and it compounded even more, hopefully I get to a million soon.

    The best way to find that balance between saving and living is by investing, This way you get
    to have your saving intact and then live comfortably off the revenue coming in from
    your investments. Financial freedom is possible, you just need to know
    what to do and when to do it. I am a living testimony.

By that time, we will also have around $30k in savings and are also 30 and 31yrs old. Next, we are going to tackle student loans. It will take a while, debt free is achievable if your disciplined.

  • Shane Davison

    Real life throws all sorts of complications into this simple math. Marriage for instance will totally destroy any chance of saving money. Also, most people don't find jobs that pay as much as the math requires. Then emotions kick in and you buy and sell at the wrong times in your stock accounts. It's not easy. I have heard people say you need a side job. Those side jobs rarely go well. You wear yourself out for minimum wage or worse and just can't make enough to make a difference. At least I never made much from various side jobs.

    When he said MATH is NOT RACIST I wanted to throw a table in celebration of this fact! We cannot be victimized if we have knowledge and owernership of our gifts to build a life worth living. It matters where we start and who we are, but we can still find a way to win even while this system is stacked against us in various ways!

    First let me say that I am a fan and I live a debt free life. To use wealth being built in agriculture for 200 years as an example of people working hard is perspective I suppose. HOWEVER, it would have been important to also note that the people getting wealthy were not actually doing the hard work. Unless this is an example of letting your money work for you. I mean slaves were considered property. That portion of the introduction should've been removed.

      @Ellen Mehlomakulu list your debts smallest to largest, continue paying your minimum payments to everything else and with any extra cash you have put it to the smallest debt. Do that until it’s paid off, then with the money you were paying the smallest debt, take it to the next smallest debt and tackle that. It’s the debt snowball. It organizes your life a little easier and you see results.

    • Joey Dziedzic
      Joey Dziedzic 2 months ago

      @Ellen Mehlomakulu the biggest thing is being committed to the process, doing the budget every month, only using cash, really tracking what you spend, etc. All the stuff that Dave preaches. You can do this!

      I’d suggest picking up some financial books if you haven’t already. People hate to read but books have the ability to explain in much better ways than someone explaining in a video. Theres just something different about them. Never stop learning. Knowledge is power.

      You looking to gamble? Go play with cryptocurrency and find a blackjack table. Sure, it's possible to win at both. But that's not a long-term investment strategy. It's called gambling.

      Find ways to increase your pay and increase your savings rate. The savings rate will dictate how long it takes for different financial independence wickets.
      The process is still the same but it will go into overdrive with a higher savings rate

      Barna Bucks Trust the PROCESS and use wisdom in developing wealth. When I was your age I sought out the get rich quick schemes. Trust me it’s a bad idea. Taking your time, getting wise council from others who have successfully created wealth and walking out the PROCESS one day at a time. Who you become in the process of creating wealth is of value you can’t put a dollar value on.

      Good, but you could earn 8-9% interest now on insured US Dollar Certificates of Deposit in other countries, including Ecuador, which has the USD as its currency.
      You could earn much higher interest than that in CDs in other currencies in other countries.
      You should be focusing on getting more than half your net worth out of USD and out of the USA. Don't go down with the sinking ship.
