Meeting Dave Ramsey


posted by | on News | Comments Off on Meeting Dave Ramsey

At Smart Work U, we help students navigate their way through college in order to graduate early, debt-free. We are always looking for people that share a similar mission. So, when I had the opportunity to meet financial expert, Dave Ramsey, I jumped on it!  It was an honor to meet Dave Ramsey and some of his staff this week.  We were able to see how he does his weekly radio show, which was live while we were there! He was interviewing a couple on the radio live from the lobby and we got to hear their “debt-free scream.”  He has truly impacted the way people view money and has changed peoples’ lives. I am continually inspired by his message. Considering the debt problems in this nation, his mission to help people get out of debt is practical, realistic, and doable. Also, I had the opportunity to meet his daughter, Rachel Cruz, who is equally as passionate about helping the younger generations live debt-free lives.  We were on a tour of the building, and she was getting off of the elevator. She was so wonderful to stop and chat with us!  It was an honor to share Smart Work U with them. The staff were so friendly and hospitable. Enjoy the pictures and make sure to watch the video at the bottom of the post!
