interactive lesson is taught by Ramsey through age-specific questions. The
curriculum is aligned with national and state standards with an emphasis on

About Dave Ramsey
America’s trusted voice on money and business, Dave Ramsey is a personal money-management expert and extremely popular national radio personality. Four of his New York Times best-selling books –Financial Peace, More Than Enough, The Total Money Makeover and EntreLeadership – have sold more than 7 million copies combined.
In 1992, Ramsey founded The Lampo Group, Inc. to provide financial counseling, through various means, to anyone who wants to better understand the principles of proper money management. Twenty years later, the company has grown from a card table in his living room to more than 300 team members and has been voted one of the Best Places to Work in Nashville five times in a row. He runs a multi-million dollar company with a nationally recognized brand, but he defines success by the number of lives changed through his message of hope.
