Total money makeover | Dave Ramsey


Dave Ramseys Total Money Makeover teaches you through seven steps how to build a strong financial future. Ramsey is the most popular personal finance book of all time, with millions of copies sold globally. Dave Ramsey is on a mission for the world to stop accepting debt as normal!

Ramsey presents the challenge of creating wealth through seven ‘baby steps’, which are;

  • Baby step 1. Creating an an emergency or ‘breathing space’ fund
  • Baby step 2. Incrementally paying of all your debts (snowballing from smallest to largest)
  • Baby step 3. Boosting your emergency fund to 3-6 months living expenses
  • Baby step 4. Begin investing 15% of your income for retirement [INDEX FUNDS!]
  • Baby step 5. Save for your children college expense
  • Baby step 6. Pay off your home
  • Baby step 7. Build wealth and give

The Total Money Makeover has common grounds with many personal finance books, such as Scott Pape’s Barefoot Investor. Nevertheless, it is still a good read and presents many unique aspects and practical tips which you can take away and implement. Although I prefer not to discuss the topic of religion, Ramsey often combines biblical references and preaching into his book which can be confronting for some.
