"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

"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..

"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. You know, you're going to kill it. And you're not even gonna notice, and I think they'll bake more than five 'cause you're gonna go real heavy into that that index fund. It sounds like it is roughly thirteen thirteen percent one. And I might put a little bit in the international. They're probably not probably wouldn't I probably just put it all in that thirteen okay in this situation. And then get some of your diversification in your after tax stuff that you're doing. Okay, we can do that. That's that's that's not a problem. But I was just wondering what do you do for a living? I'm an operation manager in the oilfield or something. Yes. Oh, yes. For the services company, and my wife said director at a school district. Okay. Well, you guys are doing beautiful way to go, man. Congratulations dang thing. Yeah. But 'cause eighteen thousand is such a small percentage will allow that much to over perform to get the tax deferred growth on that much of it. The rest of us just you're gonna be taxed out your eyeballs on anyway, because you're evil you make too much money, and you must be punished according to the government. And so yeah, that that's your in a crate shape man way to go very very well done, man. Oh, man, boom, boom, boom Lubbock Sandra's on YouTube and says only start investing, but I can only start with five hundred dollars. I don't know what to do or who I can talk to about it. Can you help? Yes. Can if you only a five hundred dollars. It means you're not out of debt. You don't have your emergency fund. And you're not following the baby steps..
