From ELP to El Machete, Andres Gutierrez is the voice of Financial Peace for the Hispanic community. Andres has been helping people with their finances for the past decade but it wasn’t until 2009 that he became “The Hispanic Dave Ramsey” with his own syndicated radio show and a 6 DVD series that teaches Financial Peace principles in Spanish.
I had the rare pleasure of sitting down with Andres Gutierrez
While speaking in the St. Louis area, Andres Gutierrez sat down with me and talked about
- How the Hispanic community views money differently
- How to reach the community with a message of Financial Peace
- How Andres became known as “El Machete pa tu Billete”
Andres is the right guy for this job – reaching out to the Hispanic community. He has a heart to help others, the ability to speak their language (both figuratively and literally), and the talent to perform in front of groups. His DVD series called Paz Financiera is being taught in seven Latin American countries and he is featured on a weekly segment of CVC La Voz that is broadcast to over 400 radio stations.

The first step to getting out of debt and on the road to saving money is to save $1,000 in an emergency fund. This does two things for you: It gives you confidence and it keeps you from going back into debt when an unexpected expense occurs.
