I’m Going to See Dave

I dig Dave Ramsey, and I think you should, too.  That’s not a broadly-painted statement like “I think you should try the new $1 chocolate turnover from Arby’s because it tastes like it’s made of chopped up baby angels.”  I understand that not everybody likes the taste of chopped up baby angels, and just because I could sit down and eat an Arby’s chocolate turnover the size of my car (hint: that’s quite large), I don’t necessarily think that you should feel the same way.  (Although you should.  You really should.)

But I digress.  As I was saying…I dig Dave Ramsey, and I think you should, too.  Because Dave Ramsey is a common-sense guy who has helped millions of people get out of debt.  Merriem and I are two of those people.  We never had a ton of consumer debt…a car payment here, a credit card there.  But a couple of years ago we decided to get serious, and in March of this year we plunked down the last payment on our last debt.  (We’re still paying for a house, because although we’re gazelle intense, our ability to pay off our house has been greatly slowed down by the aforementioned $1 Arby’s chocolate turnovers.  Which you should try.  Like right now.)

I digress again.  Dave is a good guy who says good stuff, and he’s coming to Raleigh on October 16th for the Total Money Makeover LIVE event.  Merriem and I will be there, and I want you to join us.  The Summit has purchased some tickets, and regardless of whether you call the Summit “home,” I want to cut you in on this deal.  You can pick up $43 tickets for $25.  The event will likely be a sellout, so pick ’em up from us.  You can order them online and I’ll drop them in the mail to you.

So let’s review: $25 will buy you 25 morsels of delectable angel baby goodness from Arby’s, or it will help you get out of debt…and stay out.  Yes, that’s a toss up, but as Dave says, “Live like no one else so later you can eat chopped up baby angels like no one else.”

Or something like that.  Order now.

    jealous. I love me some Dave Ramsey. Just another reason why I dig talking with you. Seems like Dave shows up somewhere I’ve just been. So, he’ll show up in Louisville after I graduate from Seminary (in 15 years…). Enjoy the awesomeness!

    heading to Arby’s… oh wait that WASN’T the point of this post…

    Hey- just a sidebar, but we didn’t happen to get on asking him to come to church Sunday, did we? I think he does that on occasion…

    Danny, you are one funny guy. Dave is smart; especially in the financial realm. But you, my friend, are funny. And funny beats out smart. mostly. But good looking beats out funny. And Jason Gaston is really good looking. But yesterday I was up on a ladder reaching up high and he told me I have a good looking belly button. What this has to do with baby angel poop I have no idea. oh i remember – my good looking belly button beats out your funniness and Dave’s smarts. But he is a smart guy, in the financial realm. He is smart enough to convince people who are trying to get out of debt to pay him money. Smart guy. Good looking belly button. ‘Nuf said.

      B the Builder, just as you didn’t fully appreciate the point of my post (it’s about Dave, not my humor), I can’t fully appreciate your comment because I’m VERY concerned that Jason Gaston was looking at (and admiring) your belly button. Scandalous. Gross. Puke-worthy.

      Summit elders will be investigating the matter.

    your post was/is good. terrific, in fact. And D.R. is worthy of listening too. In fact, we just finished reading one of his books. Good stuff in there. We’ve made changes. But if I paid $25 to hear him, that would be $25 less I would have to put towards something else, like waxing my stomach (I don’t really do that). Never mind. But really, I’ll back you on this. People should go hear Dave. He’s not just a financially smart guy. He’s a godly, financially smart guy who wants people to be better stewards of what God has given them. And then maybe people will give more $ to your employer, Danny, and you can get a raise and get rid of Hooptie Deux.

    This has nothing to do with your post but I thought you’d get a kick out of this website. Actually, I’m not really sure why me and Marty thought of you when we saw this. Anyways….check it out… (no www.)
