“Dave Ramsey’s “ Total Money Makeover “ single handedly changed the course of my life. Not exaggerating at all, I believe without financial literacy and being suffocated by debt will not allow a fulfilled life. I’ve gifted this hardback book at least 20 times to loved ones almost BEGGING them to read it and follow the steps exactly. After our first read of the book my wife and I went on path to be DEBT FREE. Happy to say after two years of following the teachings in the book,  we were able to pay off ALL of our 5 figure financial debt outside of a home and are now DEBT FREE. We owe it all to the book Total Money Makeover.”
