Do you Know Who Dave Ramsey is and What the SmartVestor™ program may do for You?

Dave Ramsey is a financial author, radio host, television personality, and motivational speaker. His shows and writings strongly focus on encouraging people to get out of debt. Dave began his career in real estate and by the time he was 26, he had a net worth of a little over a million dollars and was earning $250,000 a year. However, he was also heavily in debt and was eventually forced to declare bankruptcy. Over the next few years, he developed a simple set of financial lessons and materials based on his own experiences and on the works and teachings of others. Ramsey Solutions was formed in 1992 to counsel others hurting from the results of financial stress. The mission statement of Ramsey Solutions is to “provide biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment that give HOPE to everyone in every walk of life”.

The SmartVestor program is an extension of that mission to help others. SmartVestor Pros are financial professionals dedicated to helping people in all stages of life to make wiser and more informed financial decisions.
