My Date With Dave Ramsey

Yesterday was THE DAY.

That's right. Hubster and I saw Dave Ramsey, LIVE, here in Atlanta.

I've been a Dave Ramsey fan for YEARS, so my expectations were high.

And guess what.

He blew me away. He was hilarious! Relevant! Hilarious! With a teacher's heart! And sound, financial planning wisdom! And did I mention how hilarious he was? (As in "Oh-my-gosh-I-may-actually-wet-my-pants" hilarious?)

Seriously, folks. If you have an opportunity to see this man and if you have ANY interest in ever becoming financially independent (or even if you DON'T, and just want to see someone who is practically a STAND UP COMEDIAN), it's well worth your time and money.

The event lasted 5 hours and it flew by. I was never bored or antsy (never!) and it was only $32 per ticket. That translates into a little over $6 per hour for sound financial advice AND comedy. (Where the heck else are you going to get that kind of deal?)


If I weren't already married, I would have proposed to Dave Ramsey. :-)

There were 8,000 people there... plus he sells a LOT of books... plus advertisers LOVE to advertise on his radio show.

He's doing well... no need to worry about little Dave. I think he, Sharon and the kids have quite a nice life. (I'm telling you, girl, if he comes down to South FLA, you and your hubby need to go... you would LOVE him!) :-)

I have never heard of this man. BUT, I love people who give good money advise, so I would probably love him : ). I love hilarious people too.
