Last summer I wrote a post about branching out and doing something that I enjoyed, even though it seemed like a stretch. (You can read that post here: "Start...") Here is an update to what I've been doing:
Shortly after writing about helping people with their finances, I had a few different meetings doing just that. It was great! Like I said before, I am good at this and enjoy helping others, but if I'm honest pretty much everything I know I learned from Dave Ramsey.
I've listened to Dave for about a decade now and I can attribute all of my success with finances to him. So I figured I should take this a step further. For the past few weeks I've been leading a small group in our Financial Peace University class at Rockford First. It is so fun to work with people face to face and to see how big a role finances play in our lives. Like Dave says, finances are 20% head knowledge and 80% behavior. These principles apply to more than just money and they are changing lives. I'm blessed to be a part!
