Forming a healthy relationship to our finances is all about taking small steps towards our ultimate financial goals. No matter your income, I believe you have the capability to find financial freedom. If you are looking for a little financial peace today, then you are going to love my conversation with Rachel Cruz! Rachel has a down-to-earth, practical perspective on finances that comes from an early exposure to money management skills. That’s right, Rachel’s dad is the one and only Dave Ramsey, who revolutionized the world of personal finance for so many of us!

Growing up with Dave Ramsey, you might think that Rachel spent her days filling in spreadsheets and planning mutual funds, but she assures me that isn’t the case. Instead, Rachel grew up with a healthy relationship with her finances and a desire to share that knowledge with others. Rachel has a natural love of public speaking, and even when she was still a child herself, she was sharing what she knew with those around her. Today, Rachel has published not one, but two bestselling finance books. She is teaching women all across the world how to be wise with their money and live financially free. It’s not just about getting out of debt, though that is important! Rachel focuses on easy steps that you can take to make wise decisions with your funds.
