As I launch this new blog I wanted to share some of the knowledge I’ve gained from listening to and reading Dave Ramsey. That is why I started out with my series on his Baby Steps:
Step 1: $1000 Emergency Fund
Step 2: Get out of Debt
Step 3: 3-6 Months Emergency Fund
Step 4: Start Saving 15% for Retirement
Step 5: Save for Kid’s College
Step 6: Pay off the Mortgage as Fast as You Can
Step 7: Give, Save, Spend!
To take it a step farther, I’ve decided to give away 3 copies of Dave’s The Total Money Makeover. If you haven’t read it you should, and if you already have it makes a great gift. I wish I would have read it sooner. There are two ways to enter:
1. Subscribe to our RSS feed. At the bottom of each post there is a link to a special page on this website. Follow it and leave a comment on that page. That’s all there is to it.
2. Alternately you can subscribe by email using the form in the sidebar to the right. Once your subscription is activated you will be entered in the contest.
The contest will end on Friday, March 26th at midnight. I will contact the winners by email.
I plan having other contests periodically and if you sign up now you will already be set up to enter them.
This giveaway has now been completed. The winners have been notified by email. Thanks to everyone who entered.
