“What goes around comes around” best describes Dave Ramsey’s view of life and his approach to personal finance. Cheating on your taxes, lying to your spouse and gossiping about your co-workers will block you from achieving real happiness, even if you get rich. Though some readers may be more comfy with Ramsey’s Christian leanings and scriptural references than others, it’s hard to fault his folksy advice, his formula for success or his financial worksheets. While explaining sound fiscal planning, he also emphasizes the importance of living by an ethical code. He teaches that compromising your integrity sabotages your prosperity. Ramsey believes riches come to moral people who give to others – especially if they also control their budgets and pursue written financial goals. The one misleading element in the book is his subtitle. Ramsey does not identify “10 keys to changing your financial destiny.” In fact, he lists 32 ethical, practical “keys” to the “more-than-enough mansion.” getAbstract recommends his fatherly financial advice.
In this summary, you will learn
- How morals and values affect prosperity;
- How to create financial stability through sensible planning;
- Why money can make or break relationships.
