1. What the Hell is a Pudgy Gazelle?
And what does it have to do with money? Good question. In the book The Total Money Makeover, Dave Ramsey refers to gazelles running for their lives from the prowling cheetah. Get it? The cheetah is debt. The gazelle is you. And if you want to get out of debt you have to RUN like a crazed gazelle....they call it "Gazelle Intense".
But, you know that pudgy gazelle...the one that's a bit sluggish and slow? The one that may get picked off by the hungry cheetah every once and while?
Yeah, sometimes we are all that pudgy gazelle. Time for that gazelle to get its act together and lose some pounds.
2. What Makes You Qualified to Write a Blog About Money?
I defer to The Wedding Singer: No, sir, I have no experience but I'm a big fan of money.
In reality, I'm not a financial planner (or panther). I am certainly no money expert. But I do know how to pay off debt. I know this because I've DONE it before...in spades. And if our story can help other people rid their world of the debt cheetah (or just maybe make them feel better about themselves), well then I will blog. Because that's a good thing :)
3. Is This Just a Dave Ramsey Fan Blog?
Nope. It's our story. D-Ram just happens to be the plan we use. It is by no means the only plan out there, or the only way. I do like the guy...and our opinions on a lot of things run parallel. But, he's not the be all and end all...and I do disagree with him from time to time : )
