Episode notes

Katy Chen-Mazzara joins us on the show today to help us explain why taking financial advice from privileged white guys is not the move. That’s right- we’re doing a deep dive into the not-so-wise words of Dave Ramsey. Meg and Katy chat about the nuances that folks like Ramsey completely gloss over to create one-size-fits-all programs that really fit nobody. 

Join us as we discuss:

  • The hypocrisy and double standards of “advisors” like Dave Ramsey 

  • Why debt isn’t automatically a dirty word 

  • What is involved in creating generational wealth

  • The worst piece of Dave Ramsey financial “advice” at 30:00

  • Navigating job loss while keeping your finances afloat
