Dave Ramsey knows first-hand what it is like be broke and hopeless. Because of his experiences, he decided to help other people change the way they handle their money. More than one million families have taken the course and learned how to gain control of their finances and have hope for their financial future, since Ramsey began teaching FPU in 1994.
“Because of the lessons we learned in FPU, we have been able to pay off $36,000 in just 17 months!” says Christine Cohn, a former FPU participant. “Debt had caused us to stop dreaming because we couldn’t look into the future without feeling stressed. Now we have a plan for our money and working together for our future.”
The course is made up of 13 lessons taught on DVD by Dave Ramsey that will change the way you handle your money. “FPU is a fun and easy to understand program. Whether you are deeply in debt or financially secure, FPU will help you gain a new perspective on how to handle your money,” comments Ramsey. After each lesson there is a small group discussion that provides accountability and encouragement. Topics include saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationships and money, and getting out debt.
Each participant needs a kit. Special rates are regularly available on daveramsey.com or by calling 888-227-3223. Included in the cost of the kit is a lifetime family membership to FPU, allowing the participant to return to any class at anytime for a refresher course. The kit also includes an FPU workbook, an FPU envelope system, 13 audio lessons, bonus CD, budgeting forms, debit card holders, and Ramsey’s best-selling book – Financial Peace.
