Ep. 62: Why We Should All Want to Work for Someone Like Dave Ramsey

This week’s episode is sponsored by FreshBooks and Slack. Josh and Shelby give listeners an inside look at the June 2017 issue of SUCCESS and get some smart money ideas from this month’s cover man Dave Ramsey. Plus, we talk to our own Managing Editor Jesus Jimenez about his personal experience meeting Ramsey and his team and why he might be jumping ship to work there any day now.

  • In the June cover story of SUCCESS, Ramsey advises against using credit cards—even if they’re used responsibly. Jimenez explains the reason behind this practice, based on his conversation with the financial adviser.
  • Next, Jimenez shares what it was like to have Ramsey analyze his finances. In the end, he has a clear view of where to make some serious budget cuts.
  • Freelance writer Jeff Vrabel shares the outcome of his no-spend challenge, where he attempts to let go of inessential spending for a month.

Favorite quote from this episode:

“I think that a lot of times our finances are basically like our poker chips, right? And how you use them and how you allocate them says a lot about yourself.”
