How much do you need to live on? How much income is coming into the house? How much do you owe? Jason Hartman and lead financial counselor for Dave Ramsey, Chris Hogan, discuss Dave Ramsey’s philosophy on managing your personal finances. Chris brings up important points, such as sacrificing for the good of the family, being in control of your finances, and he lists the Seven Baby Steps to financial peace. Chris drills down on some of those steps, explaining how they work, the goal of the step, and the end result. For more details, listen at: http://www.SolomonSuccess.com. Chris talks about how people resort to tools of debt and how to get away from the clutches of credit. The Bible contains 750 references on how to deal with money, a few of which Chris expounds on. In the Book of Luke, one reference basically refers to money as a tool, and Chris explains the various ways it is to be a tool to help others. Money is amoral, not inherently good or evil.
Chris also tells the Dave Ramsey story, detailing how Dave went from bankruptcy at a young age with a young family, to a successful financial educator, the founder of DaveRamsey.com and host of The Dave Ramsey Show. Jason also asks Chris to expound on the ideals of Dave’s “EntreLeadership,” a combination of entrepreneurism and leadership, which helps leaders win in business, based on sound principles. Chris Hogan stirs audiences to action wherever he speaks. Whether Chris is delivering a keynote on personal money management or teaching an all-day leadership training for business owners and professionals, the audience will be entertained and challenged. Chris Hogan is a sought-after, diverse speaker who loves to challenge, motivate and encourage business leaders, real estate professionals, military personnel and students to be their very best—no matter what! Chris Hogan might have been the most unlikely person to wind up working as a financial speaker. Why? Years ago, Chris was an All-American college football player who pushed future NFL players all over the field—far removed from the world of helping others find Financial Peace.
For Chris, the path from football to where he is today was a long, but meaningful, journey. While he was a vice president of a well-respected company, helping clients manage all phases of their businesses, he realized how so many families, marriages and children were being affected by money issues. He felt powerless as he sat behind his desk and watched his clients throw away their financial futures. Chris knew things needed to change. That’s when he met Dave Ramsey, and his career found a new direction. Today, he helps spread Dave’s message of financial hope to audiences everywhere. An engaging and humorous speaker, Chris is an expert on subjects like mortgages, healthcare and investing. To promote financial education, he speaks at colleges and businesses, and conducts on-site training sessions at companies. Chris also works with high-profile clients, such as athletes, entertainers and businessmen, to help them develop a financial strategy to protect their wealth and secure their future. Chris has had insurance licensure and banking certifications in three states. He holds an undergraduate degree from Georgetown College and a master’s degree from California University of Pennsylvania.
