We are starting our 4th year of offering Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University to the Columbus (Ohio) area. Dave is a best selling author, nationally syndicated radio financial expert, motivational speaker, and creator of Financial Peace University financial education class.
Dave Ramsey created his common sense financial education class 20 years ago, now he serves millions of people in businesses, churches, community centers, military, schools and prisons worldwide. Dave’s system of financial education really works at helping people manage money, become debt free, relate with spouses better about money, and build wealth for emergencies, college education and retirement. Someone asked me once if I agree with everything Dave says, my answer to that is I don’t agree with everything I say- but I do believe in about 95% of what he teaches, because I have studied his concepts and they work.
Why does Dave’s system work so well? It works great because he has researched, refined and improved his program to find out the best way to be financially healthy. His system is proven, and I have seen it work with the classes we have led. Each class that we have led reported that it helped most people. In addition we have seen about $1.5 – $2 million dollars of debt reduction of class attendees. Some people have written to me of their testimonies and I have posted them here.
Dave has recently updated his course and we rolled it out last Fall, and our next class starts February 7th at 7pm. To find out more about this upcoming class go to the link at Vineyard Community Center. I’m glad the new course was shortened from 13 weeks to 9 weeks, it makes it a lot easier for people to commit to.
The format for the class is to watch a professional, informative, educational teaching by Dave Ramsey on DVD, jam-packed full of information. Small groups are assembled following the DVD to discuss the lesson and provide accountability for those that want it. Dave not only teaches information well, but talks from the heart from his own deep failures and successes. He motivates, gives sample cases so that you can identify with, and is generally funny and entertaining to listen to, what I call ‘Edu-tainment.’
If you or someone you know would like to be more financially smart, and improve their financial future, they should attend a class near them, and hundreds of classes with the new materials are scheduled to start nationwide: to find a class near you go to www.daveramsey.com.
Get Ready For Class
If you have signed up for a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University (FPU) class starting this Winter, congratulations. Your life will change for the better very soon. I am excited for you. Be sure to arrive on time, since class starts promptly. Plan to come early to drop children off at childcare (if offered), or obtain your Membership Kit, if you are buying it or have pre-purchased it from from the class coordinator. In addition, be sure to bring your Member Workbook from your kit and a pencil each week, as well as any homework assignments. Doing this as well as coming with a positive attitude will prepare you to get the most out of each lesson. For a class that I am coordinating I have prepared a short Power Point Presentation. If you were unable to come to the orientation/preview January 31st, you might want to review it. Click the link to view this saved at Slidshare.
