The Financial Foundations Series – a series of four courses based on Dave Ramsey’s “The Seven Baby Steps for Financial Success” – coaches practical and relevant financial skills that empower participants toward a solid financial foundation. The author of Financial Peace, Ramsey is also the financial commentator on the nationally syndicated “The Dave Ramsey Show.”
Led by Instructor Jeanine O’Brien, a certified debt elimination specialist, this series spans four courses. Part 1 covers savings, budgets and debt; Part 2 overviews college student essentials, family friends, philanthropy and consumer awareness; Part 3 teaches bargains, credit bureaus and insurance; and Part 4 discusses investments, retirement and savings plans. “We teach common sense, real-life financial principles that work,” O’Brien said. Each course in the series builds on the skills and knowledge learned during the preceding courses.
