Better to live one year as a tiger than a hundred as a sheep.
Why is it seemingly “uncool” to call someone out? Maybe because most live like sheep. I’m tired of this attitude…no more. We’re going to be tigers here and actually hope that the “sheep” decide to come after us. Let’s be real clear on the intention of this upcoming series of mortgage blogs.
There are three purposes behind this series:
- Dig into the math behind your primary mortgage options and which one benefits you or the bank the most.
- Teach people the truth about this huge financial transfer, known as the mortgage, in order to challenge the “false teachers” out there today…primarily Dave Ramsey.
- To PROVE with good ‘ol 8th grade math that Dave Ramsey is mathematically challenged. Afterall, one of his very own (and high-up-the-ladder) executives told me personally that “80% of our (Ramsey’s) clients are financial idiots”…that’s a quote folks. So congratulations, they think you’re financial idiots.
This will be fun but frustrating for those who have actually followed his mortgage advice…don’t forget how they defined 80% of you.
A BIGGER BOX
Like Dave, I’m a Christian. Unlike Dave, I was willing to learn. Malcolm Forbes said:
“The dumbest people I know are those who know it all.”
When an idea is presented that is “outside the box” of your belief system about what you know to be true, then you have two choices: you can throw it out or get a “bigger box”.
I’ll be asking you to get a bigger box. Why? Because if what you knew to be true turned out not to be, when would you want to know about it?
Followers of Dave Ramsey will have a choice after math proves him wrong: to keep their box-of-truth the way it is or get a bigger box because they were willing to learn. Your choice. If you want to remain a “sheep” under his protection fine, we’re looking for tigers.
Get ready for some serious Financial Caffeine. Keep reading, we have a quiz for you next.
I’m Kelly O’Connor and as I dig deeper I’d like to get your comments…I’ll post ‘em all.
