First things first, if you live in Nashville and haven’t hear of Dave Ramsey then its probably about time you did. Here is an excerpt from Dave’s about page:
“Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year—that’s more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie, and that 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I’m the idiot who signed up for the trip.
The short version of the story is that debt caused us, over the course of two and a half years of fighting it, to lose everything. We didn’t tell anyone what was going on or look into getting personal loans to help out, but if we had to do it again, we would learn from the wisdom of others who have been through it. We soon learned that we were not the only ones at the bottom. Barbie and Ken (you know, the couple who appear to be perfect—perfect clothes, perfect car, perfect house) are broke, and I don’t take financial advice from broke people anymore.”You can listen to Dave’s show everyday from 1 to 4 on Nashville’s local station 99.7 or go here to find where to listen in your area.
So why am I telling you all about Dave? Ryan Sweeney of Ryan Sweeney Photography will be teaching the Financial Peace University right here at Wedding 101 beginning September 9th. The class will run for 13 weeks and teach you everything you need to know how to pay down your debt.
On average, people who attend FPU pay off $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 in just 90 days. Seriously, that is amazing. Obviously this will all depend on your individual situation but I cannot think of a better way to start off a marriage then to be united when it comes to money.
If you are not sure that this is for you, then come out and meet Ryan on August 26th or September 2nd for a quick informational meeting.
The price for the FPU 13 week program is $99 plus tax per couple.
