    Default Does Anyone Know of a Canadian Dave Ramsey?

    Hi there!

    Just curious whether anyone can tell me of a "Dave Ramsey" type expert in Canada? I know the basics are the same (don't use credit, pay things on time, etc.) but I am trying to do some research on taxation and Dave doesn't apply up here in Canada...

    I work as a Dave Ramsey trained Financial Coach here in Ontario. Depending on what your question is regarding taxes, I might be able to help. Dave himself will most often direct people to a qualified tax professional rather than try to speak to something he's not an expert at, I do the same.

    Dave only talks taxes on a very limited scale. Even in FPU, his main advice on dealing with taxes (aka lowering them) is "VOTE"
    If you could kick in the pants the person responsible for your problems, you wouldn't be able to sit for a month.

    Did you know that a 4 year student paying $20,000/year who finances their education graduates with over $103,000 in debt to start? But a student who works and pays cash and takes 6 years to graduate ends with $6,300 in their pocket! So much for "getting a head start by financing!"

    I wish my hubby would watch that show with me! Any time I put on one of my "money shows", he can't leave the room fast enough!
