Rachel Cruze is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, a financial expert, and the host of the Rachel Cruze Show. Growing up as Dave Ramsey's daughter, Rachel hated budgeting for years until she experienced the freedom of budgeting for herself. 

Now a leader in the space in her own right, she shares fun, practical ways to take control of your money and create a life you love – as a speaker, writer, and popular social media resource. Here are a few of the tips Rachel discusses in today’s episode, drawn from her 7 Baby Steps plan:

  1. Build up $1,000 in savings
  2. Get completely out of debt
  3. Build up an emergency fund (3-6 months of your income)
  4. Start saving for retirement (15% of your income)
  5. Start a college fund (529 plan)
  6. Finish paying off your home
  7. Be generous, and continue building wealth

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with personal finance, the percentages, and different accounts and everything else – but the most important thing is getting that first step of momentum. From there, your money, and confidence with it, only grows. 

You will learn about...

  • Home life and growing up in finance
  • Getting into the industry 
  • Importance of momentum
  • Baby steps we can call take
  • Giving and generosity as part of your financial plan
