We’re excited to invite all our friends and clients to the Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University class we will be hosting soon, and ask you to share this post with anyone you think might be interested.
As you may know, Paul used to have a “paycheck job” – he would work at Southeast LA Hospital all day and join Julie at the studio evenings and weekends. In November 2011, a client told us we should consider taking FPU to help us get our finances in shape to someday have Paul at the studio full time. We signed up to be emailed when a class started in Slidell, but since the class was being revamped it was July 2012 before we were notified.
On a Wednesday, we got the email that a class would be starting in August. On Thursday, we signed up for the class. Friday afternoon, we found out that Southeast Hospital would be closing by the end of the year and that Paul would be laid off during the Christmas holiday. “Full time at the studio” was suddenly no longer a dream but a scary reality. Getting our finances in order was no longer an interesting concept but a vital necessity.
FPU taught us how to tell our money where to go instead of wondering where it went. Knowing that millions of people have used Dave’s methods successfully, we were able to accept that we did not have to reinvent the wheel. It was nerve-wracking at first to realize how much trouble we could be in once there was no regular paycheck, but a huge relief to have a plan to avoid that trouble before it could happen.
We talk often about how amazing the timing was for the universe to hit us over the head and say “pay attention to your money right now.” We believe that if we had not taken the class when we did, PWP would no longer be in business. After the first couple months, we would have had to close and go back to the “paycheck” world. Instead, we approach the Fall having made it through our two “low” months with savings to spare. We are here for the long haul, and Dave Ramsey is to thank for it.
We are so excited to host a Financial Peace University class and have the opportunity to share something that has truly changed our lives. The nine-week class will run Monday evenings at 6:30 from August 11th through October 6th. You can visit foamcoreprint.com for more information. There will also be a preview class on July 28th at 6:30 pm. Sign up for the class here: http://www.daveramsey.com/fpu/
We hosted this class last year, and 12 people together eliminated over $45,000 worth of debt during the nine week class!
Registration is $93 (which goes to Dave, not us), and includes a membership for you and your spouse, access to the online resources and tools, a copy of Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money book, FPU Class workbook, FPU Envelope System, FPU Progress Chart and more.
We hope to see you there.
