  1. Push the button “sell the car”. Standard issue. Standard response. People get so trapped with car payments. It’s too easy to buy a car way out of your league.

  2. Praying for this family that they can make the right decision and have a peace of mind! Great advice Dave! 👍

  3. She doesn't have to wait. If they have to, a little debt won't kill them. The sooner she starts, the sooner she makes good money.

  4. I need help plz , so I Make 33K year in retail customer service , I work full time and school full time , however I MAY have the opportunity to be a probation officer making 50K a year , should I accept that or stay till graduation (3.5 years) and make 55K starting salary ?? I love both careers but not sure

  5. Sounded good up until the Pell Grant comment. Dave just remined us that he is a baby boomer with that comment. I know people who have used that grant to complete school and are know working in their career of choice making way more money than they did before. Everyone starts somewhere. This caller is a prime example of that. In 6 months he will graduate with NO loans because of that Pell Grant. Time is of the essence, why put off school when you can qualify for a grant that will help you finish and obtain your degree of choice without debt? I usually agree with the advice Dave gives but that comment came off too judgemental.

  6. I've been married and I tell everyone I know to implement and develop a financial plan for your household, especially if you have a wife and children. Its one of the most important things you could ever do for your marriage. And if you happen to come into relationship with someone that doesn't want to abide by a budget and financial plan, let them go and avoid a life long headache and pain.

  7. Sounds like a good kid….

    To be fair, he has no experience in the world of savings and debt – he's just lived in school and had his Love fall ill.

    Praying for this kid and his scene….

    Yours Truly,


  8. Dave Ramsey. Taking Financial Peace University changed my life. It changed my way of thinking about life and money. Because of all the garbage on Youtube about fancy cars and real estate, I've started a channel. I hope I can keep it real and something you would approve. "Credit cards are slavery." "Debt is dumb" Thank you so very much for changing my life and the destination of my family.

  9. money is so important. my parents were broke so i never knew about money management. now i do thanks to dave.

  10. He could probably do some side jobs once he finishes school and knows what he's doing.. backyard mechanics tend to make decent money on the side if they know what they're doing.

  11. This is a very simple and easy straight forward situation to get out of. Dave laid it out perfectly and it makes perfect sense.
    I hope they listen and things will turn out well

  12. I pay my mom's car payment for almost 6 years now i have $3000 left if i can do it with a $280 income min wage job you can do it takes planning and hard work and determination to get it done.

  13. If I had an extra vehicle I would give it to this young couple. Dave, do you share testimonials like this on your podcast?

  14. They're young it's good he is seeking help, if you don't know what to do seek help. No one ever made it own their own 💪

  15. Wait a minute. I thought $15 an hour was supposed to fix everything? According to our friends on the left that’s a living wage!

  16. He does realize that every single college student qualifies for at least a grant of some type: Federal or state. Yes lower income people get more, but I don't see why he has to shame people for getting a Pell Grant to go to school. He's an old baby boomer and out of touch with reality.

  17. Always makes me wonder how employed Dave's followers are when all these views pop-up in the first 13 minutes after publication in the middle of the afternoon.

  18. That's a great advice. It is really great to have a lot of experience on life. I hope they can sell the car on a good price and start working on their finance.

  19. It’s painful to say no to my parents they always borrow money from me . I have this problem

  20. This is why it's nice to have money. You don't want to be worried about bills during health issues 💵
