Deep Dive on Dave Ramsey's Investment Advice! (Financial Advisors React)

"Yeah Brian. So this what is going to be kind of interesting? We sort of asked the audience out there. Hey, you know we've talked about Dave's investment advice in the past. Would you be interested if we did a bit of a deeper dive? What are some things that are good where some things that maybe aren't so good what's our take on it and there? Was a resounding yes. From the audits that they wanted to hear it. So here we are to share our thoughts I feel like we need to lay out some ground rules though I mean we do live in Franklin Tennessee and we're kind of in the backyard of the big dog himself Dave Ramsey, and here's the thing you can't live in our parts and not have. Neighbors, people you go to church with you know there's a lot of you know of Ramsey solutions that are all in the community, and by the way if you were here thinking you see a show were Ramsey solutions are Dave Ramsey is trashed. You're in the wrong place. We have tremendous respect for Dave and I think if you even as we poke holes in some things that I think Dave is going to astray on and you can improve upon there is no doubt that Dave has done more good to the financial world than anything else if we just wanted to kind of look at some of this quick accomplishments, he has over fourteen million listeners to his weekly radio show he sold over eleven million bucks. He has this says, this is from the website over eight hundred team members I know that just because some friends whether it's like nine hundred and fifty employees think about like how many lives is impact in this? Is just absolutely remarkable more than five million folks have gone through financial peace. University. So if you do this exercise awhile backbone I can't remember you saw speaker somebody in you named out some big brands you'd come up with one word to describe them, and so if you throw out Ramsey solutions, what's the one word that that comes up in my mind? It's debt. Think Dave there is nobody that gets you out of debt better than Dave Ramsey. So what I'm trying to figure out those we know Dave, does so much good with getting people out of debt he talks about the eighty percent that's behavior that yet twenty percent that's in your head. What does that mean towards investments because is, is there space to know that there may be some additional things that you ought to consider? Yeah. So one of the things that I think is amazing I will have a family members or relatives who I tell them all the time about, hey, here are the things that you want to do to like get a credit card debt or pay this off in no matter what. I say how communicate somehow it doesn't doesn't sit with them but in all of the sudden church offers like financial peace university, go through it and they come tell me how you will believe what I just learn their own far for the concept. I've been telling you this for like months and years but what ends up happening is they kind of get through that interational and they do say okay now I'm ready to. Start Building Wealth, and this is what Dave said about investing, and that's where I always have to kind of say. Oh, well, maybe that's not exactly perfect. So let's I. Want to go a little deeper because Dave does talk about the eighty percent. This behavior twenty percents head space will there's also I think it goes beyond that is that we know that the lion's share of Americans struggle with basic things what I consider. Commonsense of they can't get out of debt. They don't have the disciplined understand it, and we've often said there is and you just mentioned it. There will come a graduation or a jump off point where you need to go beyond common. That's right. So I, think that's where we fit in. We are not the eighty percent or the portion of the public that struggles with basic behavioral stuff we know that our audience are maximized. Money Masters we know that if this doesn't hit you, it's just you're not there yet we are focusing on the twenty percent that wants to make sure every dollar in your army of dollars has a purpose and knows what they're doing and you WANNA maximize it. So that's what we're going to focus on, and that's what we're going to look at it through that lens to see how does Dave's investment strategies? How do they fit in what we know is financial advisers about wealth creation. So if we're GONNA talk about areas where possible he misses it a pasta hits at one of the questions you might be asking what is Dave Ramsey's investment advice so we actually went. Out to Ramsey solutions and I think this is on Chris Hogan's website, and he basically lays out how to diversify your portfolio. If you're structuring investment portfolio, Dave likes using mutual funds, he likes using active mutual funds and he thinks that an investment strategy should look something like this twenty, five percent and international twenty, five percent growth and income twenty five percent aggressive growth in twenty-five percent and growth that certainly sounds easy. Doesn't sound like that's a hard thing to put together. Well, it sounds very broad and it sounds very growth oriented but I do like I think this is something that got fine tuned Chris came in as part of Ramsey solutions is he goes a step further. Tells you what are those broad descriptions like aggressive growth growth and income? Is there a large cap mid category international? So what's what's the deeper dive on that? So if you look at the details growth and income, these are the big companies is the ones that have a market cap of ten billion. Well, if you were to ask us the money got show rebound wealth what that is that's really large-cap. Holdings large cap US companies well, then they said there's this growth asset class naturally tends to be companies that are somewhere between two billion to ten billion dollars. Well, we would just call those mid sized or mid cap companies, and then there's this aggressive growth high risk high returns. These are companies that are smaller they're less than two billion. So we just call that small-cap now, all three of these are us. US large cap us mid cap small cap, and then lastly there's this international bucket companies that are outside of the United

"TIFFANY'S IN DALLAS. Hi tiffany. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Hi? How are you? Right? How can we help? I was calling because I I recently got married. Well, not recently, it'll be a year November and my husband and I. We were why thought we were on board to? follow that the plan I actually went year class a couple of years ago when I was telling my husband about it in. SHANECO excited initially but I guess maybe after a few months of the A we we had joint bank accounts and then he decided he wanted to have separate bank account and in that time and we have joint bank accounts we did pay off. credit card that we had differently and student loans, and so now the haven't had that conversation one or it was just kind of like. I'm not sure kind of like an abrupt decision. He had the conversation. He just went and did it. Why haven't you said? That's not okay. Well I I did and He just kind of implied that he didn't. WanNa have separate or he just said he didn't want to have separate account. He wanted to have separate accounts one. Well, he said he didn't like the way I was spending money, and when I brought attention that you know we pay off student loans paid off credit cards. For the two of you working together on a budget now you weren't. I'm not. We did a couple of times. You were spending money and hand like how you're spending money because you guys didn't have a plan where you're working together. Hey tiffany. This doesn't feel like a big deal, but I want you to sound every alarm. You have. This is a big deal. The number one cause of divorce in north, America days, money fights, and money problems. Jesus said your treasures where your heart is. He just took his treasure and took it away from you and set it over to the side and cut you out. Right. This is danger US relationship ground. This is stopped the presses. Get somebody that you trust in your life that can sit down with both of you, and you had this conversation like today Gore toward pastor marriage counselor, somebody to walk you guys through this, and you combine your lives for richer for poorer in sickness and in health unto the all my worldly goods I pledge. This the old-fashioned marriage vows that no one says anymore. Because it caught the combining of your lives in the combining of your assets in the combining of your spending decisions causes the combining of your values and forces detailed in-depth communication. And there's a lot of thrashing around going on at your house where he just jerk stuff away, and then you stand there looking like a deer in the headlights going what happened 'cause you were over here overspending or you're spending money and he couldn't control you or some kind of crap is going on here. I, don't know what it is, but I smell stink Something's not right. Somebody's hearts settled a year end with her cheers or his or both. But this is a giant red neon flashing light saying Danger Danger, and you've got address it soon in dress it with a good heart. If you come in and say, Hey, these two knuckleheads on the radio said that you survived out a divorce yet, don't do that. Let's see what we're saying. If you don't fix this. When you're thirty is you know ten years from now, this will have gotten much worse. It's not going to naturally get better. Systems left to themselves deteriorate unless you put pressure on them to Polish and to become an marriage is a system in that regard. So. We've I've seen this for Thirty Years Coaching couples. It's a very, very dangerous sign. So yeah, you guys need to get on the same page. He is either controlling or ultimately disgusted with you or both over the handling money, and you guys need to get on the same page. So we'll help you guys sit down with a good marriage counselor, get some coaching before this gets worse. It's not a lightweight thing and then I'll give you Ramsey plush and you guys get in there and go through. go through Financial Peace University, get on the everydollar budget together. And Combine your finances income into agreement every month before the month begins as to where are spending is going to occur and you both have a vote. He doesn't have the only vote and neither do you and neither do you. This is called marriage. We're going to work together. We're GONNA compromise for the good of the couple. And die you've you surrender yourself, he surrenders himself himself for the good of the pair. And so what I do in our looking at this. Okay. What's good for the two of us? Not, what's not what do I want and double out? Don't double up my fish and have A. Fit like a four year old kid on the cereal. It happened yesterday in my house. I said Hey. Let's let's. Start putting some money savings here instead of. Put money over here. My Wife said, I, don't feel comfortable with that. What if we split the difference and I, trust her and she trust me and she was wise and I wasn't being unwise I just had an idea in my head together a good decision.

Should I move out of my parents' house with $55K in student debt?

"A few months ago I turned twenty five and I finally started. You're listening to everyone. Who's been telling me about the Dave Ramsey guy? All right great. Let me listen and so I started listening to him in your show and then I just started doing financial peace university in December. My predicament is so I still live at home with my family. They allowed me live here. Why would you want With great but I'm now in a position where I went to move out on my own. Have my own space all of that. So my question is do I pause my debt snowball and saved to be able to move or should I just stay put or should i. I put a rent in my budget and then do it that way. So I'm not quite sure how to do both because I really chomping at the bit and move and on my own then you all that fun stuff but I also want to set myself up financially so I like you. I like you because no oh I'm serious because a lot of people in your position would be so excited about the possibility of moving out. They wouldn't even think right they would just be spreading out the door. And you know what you'd it'd be yelling you'd be saying freedom as you run out and then you get there and you have all the bills and reality come in and then you go not freedom so so you need to be clear all right so first and foremost are you working right now. Yes sir. Okay how much is your how your income each year. Oh this year I will be around thirty thousand right around thirty thousand and talk to me about the debt. You have left them really. What do you have Sherri I so I have about fifty five thousand and student loan and then I have about twenty five hundred and like consumer debt and then I have? I have a elite and I'm really get rid of now that I know what I know you we we got a little fuzzy right there. What was the last thing you said you have elise? Emily Carr leave. I know what they are. I'm just not a happy all right. This is how much are you on the hook for with this Fleece Oh my monthly payment is three twenty seven. What kind of car is it? It's a jeep compass. Okay all right what else you have outside this lease so my student loans and then a little bit of consumer debt. That's not the twenty five hundred. I mentioned all right and And the least so nothing else. No okay now how is it. That's the money side so you're making around thirty eight. You've got this debt. How our things living at home? They're not bad at all on the scale of one to ten one being absolutely unbearable. Ten being it's Shangri la GimMe a number I'M GONNA five okay all right so it's right in the middle. There's nobody else listeners. Just me and you're talking So okay so that's the deal. Are you currently contributing anything to the household income right now right now the with your parents now I am not. I Live rent-free okay. And how have you saved any money I did but then when I started financial peace you know I put it all towards my corral. Emergency funds a trick question. I was trying to see you do know I was going to get my information one way or the other But I like that. And here's what I do. I love the idea of you being more intentional and I hope to goodness you are throwing money at this debt. Like you know like on fire because what I would say say in looking at this as a getting rid of this lease do you know how much longer you have on it so I will have. I would have it until the summer of Twenty Twenty One I. I know. That's what they're saying. I want to say here's what you're going to do. You get some information about how to get out from under this thing. Okay Because I'd much rather you you buy a vehicle for cash that you know that. Hey this is going to be a car that you're gonNA have not one you're going to have to turn in and I don't like leases because they can give you a total amount of miles els per year and if you go over that they can charge you a dollar more per mile so this can you dangerous dangerous setup for you And so getting that consumer data tacked tacked on your life. You really looking at the student. Loan debt. I like the idea of building a budget and going ahead and looking at some rent amounts in your area and go ahead and build your budget based off that and start to look at this now. I'm saying this because as you're setting money aside you're going to have to get ready to start paying this so it's not only just where you're looking to read. It might be the rent you need to understand as my rent covers certain utilities or not and so I want you to be mindful of this You I need to think about. Are you taking on a roommate or not Are you getting a small apartment. Don't try to get the place. You're just trying to get a place when the time comes but I would also talk to your parents about this. Let them know your mindset and timeframe And really start to really look at this and get ready find out what what their average water bill is. That's going to be different on the home for sent apartment but again some apartments will pay utilities or majority of them. You just need to be mindful of where this is so I like where you are. I'm proud of you. I'm proud of you that you not only have listened to this. You've started to apply in your life and that means you're setting yourself up for success. Excess and emily. You're filling full well. The pain of debt it's frustrating and it's irritating 'cause it steals from you right. It's taking your money instead of you being able to build for you so I'd like your mindset. I like where your head is. Stay focused young

"Hey, Andrew, welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Mr ramsey. Thank you for taking my call. I just wanted to say real quick. Thank you for all your financial peace university. You my wife and family and myself out of dark place. Wow. Well done, sir. How can I help today? We've kind of. We got it to our our family and. Wearing a medical issue. There. Sunday has a congenital heart. So we run into some medical issues. Slots, we weren't expecting obviously. And. I wouldn't say we're h paycheck. But we're pretty close to it with all these. My wife's student loans are gets point where they're getting. They're getting a little out of control in terms of interest rates every piling up on that. So. When started a few years ago until now using the. Steph sworn in t-, we've gotten ourselves paid off twenty eight thousand. And we still have another forty six to go. Could you my wife's student loan? So I'm just trying to figure out what we can do to get ourselves out of this. This whole. What's your household income? We have a single intone gross sixty three net forty eight. Okay. All right. What do you do? IT manager. Good goodness. Okay. Good. And. You did you adopt a child that had a defect or have a child. I had a defector what we her son has. Called transition. Yeah. But how how old is gold? He's he's nine months. Okay. Okay. She had a baby that had a heart issue. Okay. I got you. I'm catching up so. That is a. You've had an open heart surgery already. Yeah. Wow. Okay. So you've had. If that's me. He's nine months old. If that's me. I'm just now starting to breathe. I I got a buddy of mine who's got a baby in us in Nikki right now, and we went up and sat with him the other night, and it just takes your breath away, all those tubes and things and how it's just amazing what the nurses and doctors are able to do. But it just make sure it makes your stomach hurt. Just standing there feeling for this little baby. And if it's your own at just it makes it ten X. And so. Unless you're a psychopath. You've not been able to keep your eye on the ball on anything for nine months except just walking with your baby. Right. It's all you've done. And so I wouldn't expect you to make financial traction or even good financial decisions during this nine months. So let let's just stipulate or put on the table that this is a highly emotional situation because you're human, and I'm human, and it's not even my baby. And I'm hurting with you right now. So let's just put that on the table. Now. Then let's step to the side of that first second and look at the math because that's what you called me about and say are what is the heart issue actually going to cost you going forward? Your monthly medication that insurance isn't covering or are you expecting a five hundred dollars a month and doctor bills that insurance isn't gonna cover what going forward, mathematically, are you anticipated? I know you got a lot of emotion. And I know we're going to have a lot of prayer. And I got all of that. I'm talking about the math of your sixty three thousand dollar income. That there there is a doctor bills. We. Quite a bit almost monthly cardiologists trip traffic surgeon checkups EKG. Echocardiogram? I mean, there's there's a lot. Yup. How much does insurance not cover on all that? I'd say our last Bill we just got for last month right around two thousand dollars that insurance did not cover correct? Okay. And so you see a thousand dollars a month in ongoing doctor bills for at least probably another year, right? Right. Okay. All right. And hopefully, as he has your son heels and moves on that's not going to be until he's eighteen we're going to see progress, and hopefully that will begin to go away over time that would be reasonable to expect wouldn't it? Great. All right. So here's what I want you to I want you to do your budget and not get further into debt, but pay the monthly bills pay minimum payments on the student loans. If you can't pay minimum payments on the student loans. Call them up and put them in hardship deferral for twelve months, and let's get twelve months the other side of this baby situation, then twelve months from today. I think you're world's financially gonna look different. Would you agree? Yes. The doctor bills are going to start to subside at some point. I don't know what that is. I'm not a doctor. But I mean, this is not going to go on for ten years. This is going to go on for ten or twenty months or something. Right. And so let's tread water. And concentrate on what's important, baby. Our son at health is the most important thing. Keep those doctors current pay their bills be on a budget and don't make any other financial progress. Don't be on your baby steps don't worry about it. Take care of your baby. Okay. And I mean, we've got all that money set aside or the doctor bills from where this year. Like, I said we've been using those baby steps so we've been pocketing money as things have gone. We we've maximum out of pocket for the last four years. They said that. With my medical issues. This year. You have how much in savings. Right now at say. Six thousand dollars Mark, which is what our out of pocket maximum. And after that the thousand dollars a month goes away. Yes. Okay. Then that changes the equation. And that's that's why. So here's here's here's what I want you to do. Let's just stop saying. Here's what I want you to run the mouth out because I'm the stories changing as we're talking because I'm getting more information. I want you to run the math out in such a way with you. And your wife that you say are priority number one is take care of baby and pay those bills period. Priority number two is food shelter clothing. Transportation and utilities. You have enough to do all of that. Apparently for the next twelve months. And then we begin to work on with any of the money. We can squeeze out of the budget and work on a budget. Now, we're beginning to work on paying extra on these are the bills and begin to get out of bed. Again, if you can do that past having taken care of your son, but emotionally you have to know that your family is.

"Ramsey solutions. Ronnie envel- are where the guys, how are you. Were you? What city do you guys live in? Houston. Texas, welcome. Very cool. Welcome to Nashville and all the way here to do debt for each. Yes, sir. How much of your paid off seventy five thousand. About seventeen months. Good for you where we go ahead. We were doing the pay the bare minimum up until we took the financial peace university and then that kicked it into overdrive. Yes, very cool. And your range of income during the seventeen months hundred ten up two hundred and thirty white ago. And what do you guys do for a living? Where in sales, he's in in the dental industry and I'm in the oil and gas industry. Oh, great. Very cool. Good for you guys. What kind of debt was the seventy? Five k? It was a combination maybe all student student debt student loan debt. And then we also had a car now that we, we had one year left and we paid it off in three months. All right, knocked it out. Okay, so you're going along and paying on debt and just kinda living life normal. It sounds like and then seventeen months ago you got into financial patient versity in that caused you to push the pedal on down to the floor and get going, is there. So what started that? How did you end up in class? Well, her her uncle actually was hosting financial. Peace university class, and he tried to get us over to his, but they were about forty five minutes from us. And we decided, well, we'll just look for one locally, and we found one at our local parish which was a mile down the road. So we couldn't say no to that and basically had to track him to class session the truth. Okay. Who's your uncle and it's my uncle, he got you started, but then found one close by. So he's got no excuse and yet. And my brother and sister in law also went through the course so that kind of motivate us, meditated us as well. They go through at the same parachute or different one. Okay. All right. So everybody's in different places, but going through the same time. All right, very, very cool. We're on. I'll be like you. I'd be like you wanna. Do. So how did you talk around into going? It is like, I think I really thought we needed a third party because all he wanted to talk about was paying off her school debt. But I, he thought he knew how to do it, but it was hard to hear what he had to say about it in. So I felt like we needed a third party just to get to get him to class with me. I just needed to hear let you speak to him. He'll plan that you both could agree on and you're in both in sales, and I've been sales my whole life, and one thing about those people is we always think we cannot earn our stupidity think we just make a little more. It'll be. Okay. 'cause you know, you can make a little more when you're selling. I just gotta make a little more do for years. My income will go up. My debt would go up and if I had to change something so so Ronnie, what did she say the talk show into going? The one thing she said, hey, we've got to get on the right page where we were both on opposite ends of the spectrum. You know, she was the spender. I was the nerd. I knew how to develop spreadsheets, but I didn't really know how to go about paying this all off some strategies. And that's what something you could buy into and be on the same page. Being on the same page as a big deal. I got married day we, we were all about buying a house and we got married in two thousand sixteen and we were looking at houses. We're ready to buy. And then we realize we're up to our eyeballs..

"But I'm wondering if it's was to stop all payments temporarily and attack this modest one paying minimums each month. I'm always being put further behind. The minimums seem to be where I'm being buried. No, you're not either. If you're minimums aren't even covering the interest on something, then you could be getting behind, but your minimum payments not getting you further behind unless that's the case. If that's the case, you're slightly slipping back there, but the extra cash that you would have put on that it's being put on the smallest debts, the small steps going away faster and you're gonna catch up. You're not gonna have a problem at all. But I will say in what I'm reading between the lines on this Jonathan is you've probably need some more income and you probably need to cut your budget steeper. I don't think you're throwing enough at the smallest one yet and the only way you get more to throw it. The smallest one is cut the expenses down further and raise the income further. And when you do that, you're ready to rock and roll. I think that's what's going on because I think you're looking at little tiny little bits of math here instead of big chunks of math where you're throwing big chunks on this. Hey, thank you for your question, going back to our debt free call the guy with a bottle study with a bunch of guys and they went through financial peace university with bunch of guys. None. The guys ended up doing it, but he did it. Now that's really it's a good end of the story for him, but let me go ahead and tell you something out here. Financial peace university is not.

"Not we don't pay off debt. So we save money. That is that's not obviously not what you were supposed to have learned in financial peace university. So. Yeah. You do not add to the thousand dollar count until you get the car paid off Brad's with us in Midland, Texas hybrid. How are you? Hey, dave. I'm doing great. How are you doing today better than I deserve? What's up? Hey, just wanted to. Thank you, first of all on baby step, seven one hundred seventy six k and eighteen months. And my question today is I took a new new job and looking at their their plan. The investments that I have available to me are pretty much underperforming. The market except for one right? We already we already max out our Ross 4._0._1._K's through a back door Ross and company provides a five percent match. So my question is I need to take advantage of that five percent match. But should I go ahead and throw the rest in an after in after-tax mutual fund? We're getting ready to to start doing that. Anyway, your federal employees. No, I'm not it's a it also services company. It's a what an oilfield services company. Oh, so it's not the federal government TSP. No, no, no. It's not. It's a company thrift plan. Okay. And your options are bad. Yeah. What is the one option? One option is is an equity fund, and it's actually performed about thirteen percent over the life of the fund which the the in the international fund is is is not terrible as as a confirmed or goes with international fund your about seven and a half percent of the life of the. But even even the aggressive is only performing at about a seven percent. I would avoid that. Now. What's your income? My wife together, we're about four hundred thousand this year hall talk about eighteen grand here. Aren't you maximum eighteen grand on the thrift savings? I had been at my previous companies. Yes. And we're we're also likes it max out the Ross, but I'm saying my maximum you're allowed to put into this TSB with questionable options is eighteen grand. Great eighteen and a half. Yeah. Out of eighteen eighteen thousand five hundred out of four hundred grand it doesn't matter. Yeah. Max that thing out if you need to be doing more investing than that. Anyway. So yeah, you do. Yeah. You're doing your back door roths on a double dip you and for your wife imacs this out, and then you're going to do a whole bunch more investing. In addition to that, we're going to put about ten to eleven K a month into mutual funds. Yeah. Yeah. So even if these do underperform, they're not going to underperform so dramatically that they pull your whole life apart given that you're not putting that much money in there. Relative to your income and relative to your other savings. You see what I'm saying? Yes, sir. If they all make five percent and all your other stuff makes ten to fifteen percent over the years.

So work your debt snowball and if you put one hundred thirty, six thousand dollars in that debt snowball put thirty five thousand dollars on that. That's a four year plan. And you got four years. Nothing while you clean this mess up maybe three. And of course, as your income comes up, it's gonna shorten that and your income probably will come up as you do this. I take it. You're single.

Ago that I started listening to you and learned about FDU You had a special one year for veterans and military, retirees Veterans Day and I took advantage of that special and I took the class and loved it so much in my church leadership Yeah, so that's. Something we need to bring to our people and. The pastor and the, other people? On the financial team agree then so about six years ago I left, my first class wow very cool it is truly a front row seat to watching people changed their lives isn't it Oh certainly it's it's it's. A blessing to see the, light come on in somebody's. Is, hope restored. Yeah so what are some of the best stories you've seen in the.

"For leading financial peace university six years how many people have, gone through your your group where over five hundred now wow. That's impactful you have, seen, it, all hadn't you I've seen a lot that's for sure? So how does having that? Many, people go. Through a class a group. Affect you Oh In so many. Ways I I'm able to tie in some of my experiences in the. Past I've been watching British credit union for thirty years and I've been CEO for eighteen, years and I've seen a whole lot of struggles with. Money So I'm, able to to pass on some of that but as, far as it's how how it's impacted me it's impacting. Me as a, leader of this credit union so that I. Could bring this information right. Here, to our. Staff and our frontlines folks who have now become. Experts with their own money so they can help to members of our credit union and. You, know you're much better credit union as a result I'm sure that's. Pretty cool very very cool so have you talked you've been doing this long you must've talked to other people in the band coordinator by now Absolutely we have about four others now, that has regular classes going on so very proud of. That all different, religions all different areas of of our community. And it's exciting it's exciting. To, just see. It grow in the impact this class has so. What got them to do it what made them passionate about it I guess because it changed their life individually and. He was all about giving back for them they just wanted to give back what they had learned so that they can teach and have an impact and, of course the teachers great blessing is that we learn learn every time we teach a class oh yeah I learned in. In our class and ended in March I earned about immigration? Process. And how difficulty citizenship and how much money it costs and how. They sometimes throwing away money. At attorneys that, don't do anything but I've found what, the solutions are. Still that the next time on facing that particular problem on the way. To go so you had someone in? The class trying to immigrate legally Yes With four children and she just in, tears kept, saying I can't send them. Back they're going to die if they go back to can't go. Back Yeah one of those future concessions now so what you did just boots on the, ground you, walk them through it and. Help them get were. They able to get it worked out well Well actually we. Had already worked it out I just. Learned from damn what. The, process, is light. And how to in the end how to be? Successful and it not caught the whole lot, of money what avenues and, what resources taking you that's a big deal okay very very cool so what's simple steps to like this particular class I hate to interrupt you, Mr. Dave Ramsey but in this particular class. We're learning about? WalMart, pickup and how not only save. You money because you're not walking around the store. And you can stay within your budget but you. Also lose weight in the process how about? That Very good very cool yeah there's, tons of tons of studies, Rachel Cruze talked about this other day one of her videos that every minute you're in the store you spend an average of what a two, dollars and forty seven cents or something I. Mean it's crazy So the impulse. Buying in grocery stores just destroys budgets. So you're right that's good that's good ground good information again, very cool stuff so what's one of the coolest stories you've had an out of. Those five, hundred people I didn't have, one that comes to mind right away. Is the family of three children a family of five living paycheck to paycheck really depressed when they got to the. Less than and they knew that they would love to dump that but. There's no way they could do and so they will get the storage until they got to the insurance. Lesson. Learned that they can buy term insurance they could cash, in their whole. Life policy..
