Dave Ramsey Interview

There will be no Menu Plan Monday this week as I am unable to return home due to the Blizzard of 2010.

This week I had the privilege of touring Financial Peace University and meeting (including interviewing) Dave Ramsey. I cannot tell you how excited I was to have this opportunity. Dave’s books inspired our family to start living like no one else and if it wasn’t for our debt free journey I wouldn’t have started this blog.

Instead of the usual office artwork, the walls of Dave Ramsey’s studio are filled with credit card art.

I also loved the wall of inspirational quotes.

Then my friend Fish Mama was able to do a live “We’re Debt FREE!” with Dave.

We watched him work.

He spent about 8 minutes chatting and talking about finances, which is what he does best! You can find my interview with Dave on the Savvy Blogging website.

I have never considered myself to be someone who gets “star struck” but meeting the person who has had such a big influence on our family’s life was definitely awesome!

    When I saw your update on Twitter that you were standing next to Dave Ramsey I was so excited for you (& the rest of the girls with you!) and now reading this post and seeing that one of you got to do a live “We’re Debt Free” it had me tearing up. Dave changes lives in a way I don’t think anyone else can…he shows you how to lift the burden that debt brings and then instead of stopping there he continues showing you how to grow your money so you can “live like no one else” AND encourages giving the whole way through. He is just amazing! I am anxiously waiting the day I can call in and scream “We’re Debt Free!!!!” or better yet- I want to do it in person so I can hug him! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Bree says:

  14. Melissa says:

    We so love DR at our house and I have to confess, I would be starstruck to meet him. We watch him on TV all the time. We are debt free trying to pass along the lessons to our children. You are so lucky!

  15. Cherrill Hartsfield says:

    Toni, You inspired me to get the book (Total Money Makeover) and I am still in the process of reading it. I have already made several changes to become debt free.

  16. Bree says:

    We got to wave at Blake, he was busy working when we were in the studio. :)

  20. Wendy says:

    I am so jealous!!! I am going through the Finacial Peace Online University and reading both the books and blogging about it. We have done baby step 1 and have pd off all credit cards, now to work on cars and house! Off to read your interview! Lucky gal!!!

  21. Amber says:

    WOW! I’m not that into celebrities either, but I think I’d be totally star struck by Dave as well! We started on our own money makeover and 2007 and we’ll be on Step 6 by spring!!

  22. Allison says:

    That is very neat that you got to meet Dave! I would love to meet him too! We just finished FPU online and it was tremendous. Hope you get back home soon! :)

  25. That’s awesome! My husband and I just started the program in January and we are so excited about being on the right track! His books and program are a blessing to many people all around the world.

  26. Tonya says:

    Wow! You got to hear him in person! I’ve read two of his books. They have helped me with our family finances as well.

  27. Stephanie says:

    Someday I want to have a wall of inspirational quotes in my house/office just like that. It’s such a great concept, don’t you think?

  28. Elizabeth says:

    I am trying to start a group on facebook kinda like a support group about dave ramseys TMMO would you let me use some of the photos you have here of the credit card art to add to an album on my page?

  29. TheHappyHousewife says:

    Sure.
