This week I will check off another item from my “to do” list. Over the next week 85 good-hearted folks from all over the United States, Canada, and even Australia are gathering for long days of training for financial counseling. Day 01 consisted of travel, introductions, two lessons, and one case study. Oh, and there is homework when we got back to our hotel. We have been told more than a few times that we should leave here exhausted but energized at the same time. If this course is anything like the Financial Peace @ Work training course then we definitely will be.
Two years ago I volunteered at one of Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover Live Events. That evening I had the pleasure of meeting Russ Carroll, Lead Counselor for the Lampo Group, LLC (Dave Ramsey’s company). I was honored when he invited me to sit and eat dinner with him and spent about 30 minutes asking a bunch of questions. I learned how he and Dave started the company, got a general idea of what he currently did for the Lampo Group, and realized that I wanted to do what he did – HELP PEOPLE THROUGH THEIR FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES.
I promised that I would see him again when I made it down to Brentwood, TN for his Certified Counselor Training. So HERE WE ARE!
