Becoming a Dave Ramsey Financial Coach

4 Minute Read

You’ve seen what happens when you take control of your money. Or maybe you’ve watched someone else do it. Either way, financial peace is a game changer. It’s exciting, and it’s contagious.

So contagious in fact, you want everyone to experience that same weird combination of outward celebration and inner peace that you felt when you finally began winning with money. What’s the best way to do that? Becoming a financial coach.

Who Should Become a Financial Coach?

Financial coaches are sometimes Financial Peace University coordinators who want to take their church or stewardship ministry to the next level. Other times they’re regular people who’ve been through FPU and taken control of their own finances—and they want others to experience that amazing feeling too. Or maybe they’re looking to supplement their income by starting a coaching side business or create an additional income stream during retirement.

Proven Financial Coach Training

We’ve offered financial coach training for more than two decades, but it’s never been as engaging, educational or exciting as Financial Coach Master Training (FCMT). FCMT is the most comprehensive personal finance coach training we’ve ever offered, and it’s taught by Dave Ramsey’s team of coaches who’ve successfully run a coaching business for 23 years.

FCMT includes three components: online classes, on-site training in Nashville, Tennessee, and a three-month ongoing mentorship. Those who successfully complete all three parts of the experience will earn the designation of Ramsey Solutions Master Financial Coach . They’ll also have the opportunity to be listed on

Why Become a Financial Coach?

Financial coaching:

  • Takes your church’s financial ministry to the next level
  • Helps people who want ongoing support after FPU
  • Can be a great income-earning side business
  • Inspires other people with your story
  • Builds relationships with other local experts

If your church already has a financial or stewardship ministry, adding financial coaching will strengthen the other components. It’s a great option for people who want continued support after FPU ends. Often they’re overwhelmed and don’t know how to start, they have specific questions that require an expert, or they just need accountability and motivation.

By offering knee-to-knee coaching, you’re making this extra support available to people in your area who might not have anywhere else to turn. And a financial coach who provides ongoing guidance improves the likelihood that people who need help make a plan and stick to it.

It’ll also give you another platform to inspire others with your own story. If your heart is to serve others, that should fill you with joy!

Financial coaching often includes another bonus for clients: a great network of other local experts. Most financial coaches aren’t experts in everything, but they’re pretty knowledgeable about a lot of things. When they don’t have an answer, they refer their clients to trusted local experts in specific fields, like real estate, tax law or investing. The more you do this, the more you build relationships with other professionals—which adds to the resources available to you, your clients and your ministry.

As a financial coach, you’re a valued asset to your community. For that reason, many coaches choose to earn an income through their business. And that’s okay! There’s nothing wrong with earning money when you help people transform their lives. The marketplace is driven by service, and when you serve well, you’re rewarded with pay.

Whether your plan is to make your coaching a ministry or a business, we teach you how. You’ll get our forms, our process and our playbook from more than 20 years of coaching tens of thousands of people.
