This blog is based around one of my favorite radio talk show hosts, Dave Ramsey. Dave has taught many of us to live below our means, spend less than we make, and to delay pleasure until we can actually afford it. Dave has helped many people across this country get back up on their feet after they have made bad financial decisions with their money. His ministry is to pass along advice and council to people who find themselves in a financially hard situation. By changing your habits, relying on the Lord, and using some simple common sense, we can get ourselves back up on our feet. If only our government would listen to his advice!
“Work - get paid; don't work - don't get paid. Everybody is on commission, ... Try not coming to work for six weeks. Work gets paid; don't work, don't get paid. When they earn those dollars, and when you're 4, and you clean up your room, it really means mom cleaned up the room and you did two toys. When you're 14, it means you cleaned up your room. But still, we got the money caused by work, and then, we have teachable moments on how to handle the money they earn.”
