At the age of 26, Dave Ramsey had created a $4 million real estate portfolio, but by the age of 30, he had lost it. Rather than call it quits, Dave rebuilt his finances and his life thanks to the wisdom gained from his experience, going on to become a best-selling author, entrepreneur and host of his own popular radio show. In 1996, Dave started “The Dave Ramsey Show”, which is now on more than 550 radio stations across the U.S. with more than 8 million people tuning in. Never one to limit his interests, Dave moved into writing books. Dave’s latest best-seller, “Smart Money Smart Kids”, which he co-wrote with his daughter Rachel Cruze, was published in April 2014 and topped the New York Times best-seller list — just the latest hit in a string of successes including “Financial Peace,” “More Than Enough,” “The Total Money Makeover,” and “EntreLeadership”.
