Great visual aid, thanks.

Here's some numbers you can trust.

Every twenty seconds we go another million dollars in debt.

Acctually CApitalism works better if you work debt Free..

in 1994 I chose to become debt free I had $25K in Consumer debt

70K in Mortgage debt.

I made 42K/year at that time.

I took on 2 part time jobs. I work in a Clinical Laboratory I took a part time job at another lab. The other part time job I delivered pizzas on Monday and Saturday nights.

in 2 years I was debt free, all except my mortgage.

2 years later I was totally debt free.

Now I did not have a 900 Mortgage and 300 Dollar Car payment and did not have to pay 300 to credit cards every month..

So I started saving.. In 3 months (still working the 2 pt jobs) I saved 10K (which was at worst 6 months living expenses most likley ~10 months)

I began saving for retirment BIG TIME.. I saved an purchased better car paid cash.. Moved into a better home Paid Cash..

Purchased a 5th wheel RV paid Cash..

I go on vacation Pay Cash.. I travel Pay Cash..

I give money to help the poor, I give money to help people that are sick.

I spend 1 day every 2 weeks teaching people how to do what I did..

Dave Ramsey taught me.. you go through 7 steps

1 Establish a $1,000 Emergency Fund for Immediate Emergencies

2 Pay Off all Debt Using the Debt Snowball

3. 3 to 6 Months of Expenses in Savings

4 Invest 15% of Household Income into Roth IRA’s and Pre-Tax Retirement

5 College Funding for Children

6 Pay Off Home Early

7 Build Wealth and Give
