This post is part of a two-part series:
- My take on Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps (Part 1, Baby Steps 1-3b)
- My take on Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps (Part 2, Baby Steps 4-7)
At this year’s FinCon, both Rachel Cruze and Chris Hogan were giving keynotes. They are both part of Dave Ramsey‘s “Ramsey Personalities” team, bringing his message, or some part of it, to more people.
For those who don’t know, Dave Ramsey is a personal finance author and radio host (and some would say “guru”). He is best known for his aggressive stance on debt, and for his “7 Baby Steps”, a plan to financial freedom.
It occurred to me that I have never actually talked much about the 7 Baby Steps, so I figured I’d give each one of them my take. To make this not too much a giant screed (too late), I want to just focus on the steps, and not on Dave Ramsey himself, or anything else about his work.
So here goes: What are the 7 Baby Steps and how could they work for you?
