    Just wondering how many other chicken friends are fans of the debt-free king!?!?!?!!

    I have been a long time fan of Dave Ramsey. We never really had a problem with debt, but listening to him, we have made sure that it would never be a problem in our life. We are debt free including the house and have an emergency fund. How is everyone else doing?

    Well we are not doing so great, BUT our only bills are the rent, food, car payments, utilities, cell phones. We are just starting to pull up out of the water. This month all bills were paid on time. No extra yet due to kids starting college, but I think we are better than most.

    I'm right there with yall!![​IMG] We are doing way better than most couples our age and it's all because we decided to follow Dave's plan. Just the house payment (only 12 more years) and $2,000 on a car!!!! We'll get it done before you know it--and the recession hasn't bothered us yet which is practically a miracle![​IMG]

    Wish I would have known about him 20 years ago....LOL

    I listen to him all the time. Gives good advice and seems like a really nice guy. I am glad he got a show on FOX as well as his radio program.

    He talks the talk and walks the walk. It's tough to break yourself of bad habits, but once you get in the swing of it you become driven.

    I'm a fan. I think he talks straight and his suggestions and ideas are spot on and clear.

    It's really just common sense and once you get rolling with it you realize how silly you've been in the past. At least that's how it was for me.
