Dave Ramsey: Put your education first, not retirement

Dear Dave: I’m 19, and I’m about to finish up my first year of community college. I have enough money through scholarships and help from my family to get a bachelor’s degree. After that, I plan on going to law school and cash flowing that part of my education. I’ve already started a Roth IRA with money I’ve made working, but I’m wondering if I should continue contributing to retirement when I will have to pay for law school out-of-pocket. — Jonathan.

Dave Ramsey: Stay focused on becoming debt free

Dear Dave: I’m on Baby Step 2, and I’m working hard to get out of debt. My last two debts are $6,000 on a credit card and $10,000 on a car loan. I’ll be receiving a $6,000 bonus at work in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering what to do with the money. I’m single, and I make about $45,000 a year, so should I sell the car and get rid of some debt that way, or use the extra money to completely pay off the credit card debt?

How a Dave Ramsey financial program has sparked outrage at UNT

A financial literacy tool proposed earlier this year by the University of North Texas is drawing flak from some employees who question the university’s motives. SmartDollar, a workplace financial wellness program, caught some of the criticism, but the bulk of faculty members’ concerns have been pointed instead at the company that produces the tool — Ramsey Solutions.

Dave Ramsey says: Finding true calling can take time

When it comes to your career and profession, how can you tell if you’ve truly found your calling in life?. I don’t think it’s common for most folks to feel like they’ve experienced some kind of grand revelation, and suddenly they know what they’re supposed to do with their lives.

Dave Ramsey: Pay off debts smallest to largest

Dave Ramsey: Is it a calling or a job?

Dear Dave: When it comes to your career and profession, how can you tell if you’ve truly found your calling in life? — Tony. Dear Tony: I don’t think it’s common for most folks to feel like they’ve experienced some kind of grand revelation, and suddenly they know what they’re supposed to do with their lives. Personally, I believe this kind of thing usually starts out as an activity or idea connected to something they enjoy and want others to experience. Often, that can grow into a job, and then maybe into a career—or even a business.

Dave Ramsey says: Be smarter with your money, especially with baby on way

My wife and I are in our 20s, and together we make about $80,000 a year. Our first baby is due in early 2022, so being debt-free has become a top priority in my mind. Right now, we have two cars. The one I drive is paid off and has a lot of miles on it, but it’s in really good shape. We still owe $30,000 on the other one, and the rest of our debt is about $90,000 in student loans.

Dave Ramsey: Good news and bad news about living near tenants

Dear Dave: My wife and I are in our late twenties, we have no debt, and our household income is about $180,000 year. We’re thinking about building a home, but we’re not sure whether to build just for us, or maybe building a multi-family place so we could live upstairs, rent the rest, and make some money. Your advice would be appreciated. — Joel.

Dave Ramsey: Being on the same page is vital to your family's future

Dear Dave: My wife and I are in our 20s, and together we make about $80,000 a year. Our first baby is due in early 2022, so being debt-free has become a top priority in my mind. Right now, we have two cars. The one I drive is paid off and has a lot of miles on it, but it’s in really good shape. We still owe $30,000 on the other one, and the rest of our debt is about $90,000 in student loans. My wife puts 40,000 miles a year on the other car traveling for work. I talked to her the other day about us moving down a little in car, but she’s particular about what she drives. I even found out she has her eye on a newer vehicle that costs about $48,000. I don’t know what to do. Can you help? — Zach.
