Making big changes, like getting out of massive amounts of debt can be challenging. Many of our financial habits are deeply ingrained and they require us to see how and why they came about and then develop better money habits.
It can a matter of working together slowly using the resources around us and online. For many couples, however, it takes something more structured and formal to reach their goals.
Today we’re going to look at a popular option – Financial Peace University.
It’s a course designed by Dave Ramsey and his team about 20 years ago to guide others in managing their finances. According to Dave, the average family taking the course gets rid of over $5,000 of debt in the first 90 days- impressive numbers.
In this episode we’re:
- getting an overview of what FPU covers
- looking at some of the results students have achieved
- how you two can get started if that’s the path you want to take
Chris from Money Peach will be sharing his thoughts and experiences as a FPU coordinator.
