How it started

I have an unusual way of looking at the world. My wife, Sharon, says I'm weird, and, truthfully, I am weird. But there's a reason. Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year. That's more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie. That 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I'm the idiot who signed up for the trip.

The short version of the story is that debt caused us, over the course of two and a half years of fighting it, to lose everything. We didn't tell anyone what was going on, but if we had to do it again, we would learn from the wisdom of others who have been through it. We soon learned that we were not the only ones at the bottom. Barbie and Ken (you know, the couple who appear to be perfect—perfect clothes, perfect car, perfect house) are broke, and I don't take financial advice from broke people anymore.

On the way up

After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works, how I could take control of it, and how I could have confidence in handling it. I read everything I could get my hands on. I interviewed older rich people—people who made money and kept it. That quest led me to a really, really uncomfortable place: my mirror. I came to realize that my money problems, worries and shortages largely began and ended with the person in my mirror. I also realized that if I could learn to manage the character I shaved with every morning, I would win with money. I went back to my first love, real estate, to eat and to get out of debt. Along the way, I began another path—the path of helping others, literally millions of others, take the same quest to the mirror.

Starting Ramsey Solutions

I formed Ramsey Solutions in 1992 to counsel folks hurting from the results of financial stress. I’ve paid the “stupid tax” (mistakes with dollar signs on the end) so hopefully some of you won't have to. I wrote the book Financial Peace based on all that Sharon and I had learned, and I began selling it out of my car. With a friend of mine, I started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show.

Our company history is full of landmarks, including six best-sellers on the New York TimesWall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly lists—and we're not slowing down. Ramsey Solutions now has more than 900 team members and a variety of products and services to help you reach your financial goals.

Many companies define success based on the dollars coming in, but at Ramsey Solutions, we define our success by the number of lives changed: listeners getting out of debt, readers taking their first Baby Step and saving $1,000, Financial Peace University graduates investing for their future. We learned early on that if we help enough people, the money will come. Our mission statement isn't just lip service—it's our mantra:

Ramsey Solutions provides biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment that give HOPE to everyone in every walk of life.

Thank you for visiting our website! Wherever you are in the process—making the quest to your mirror, struggling to get your budget to work, paying off that last debt, or debt free and looking for places to give—let us know how we can help you take that next step in your money makeover.

    Pros

    -The mission: I know the work I'm doing is making a difference in people's lives. What we do has drastically changed my family's lives for the better and it's cool to see everyone around me fighting for the same goal of bringing hope to people... especially during crazy times like this.
    -Competitive salary: I've done a lot of research on this and it would be very difficult for me to make the same salary somewhere else, especially working only 40 hours per week, and not being in leadership.
    -Work-life balance: We rarely work over 40 hours a week and your family is prioritized first. With that said, we work extremely hard when we are in the office, and get a lot done.
    -Devotionals every Wednesday: every week we have a world class speaker come in and pour into the team. It's nice to know the company cares about you as a person and not just what you produce.
    -Christmas party: The most epic event I've ever been to, and it happens every year!
    -Leadership: Our CEO deeply cares, and is present. Our Personalities (speakers) are friendly and down to earth people, and the leadership on my specific team is world class.
    -On-site cafeteria with subsidized pricing: The food is delicious, budget friendly, and a huge time saver.
    -Debt-Free company: I have never once worried about my job security during Covid.

    Cons

    -Processes: This has been my biggest frustration over my time at Ramsey. Although the company has been around for over 25 years, some processes are non-existent or change every week, so it's hard to manage with everything else on your plate, and then some teams have so much process, it's hard to get anything pushed through to completion. With that said, I believe it's improved every year, so I have a positive outlook on that!
    -The company hires for humble, hungry, and smart, but on several occasions, I've seen a few senior leaders within the company not exude these qualities. It can be odd at times.
    -For people who want to work at Ramsey, if you are looking for perfection, you aren't going to find it here. Some days, I get really frustrated, but this place is the best place I've ever worked. At the end of the day, the job is what YOU make it.

    Advice to Management

    -Keep showing care for the team. We don't expect you to be perfect, but knowing you want the best for us makes all the difference.
    -Keep over-communicating
    -Be humble
