The newly launched guide aims to meet the new demand for in-depth and accurate financial advice in today’s market. It’s the latest in a long range of financial advice pieces focusing on topics covering debt, budgeting, saving, earning, retirement and more.
Readers will discover that Dave Ramsey made his reputation through his Baby Steps and Debt Snowball approaches to finance. However, his techniques have become outdated, and the guide emphasizes that they could be a disservice for those trying to escape debt today.
One of the reasons for this is that his Baby Steps method has remained unchanged for more than 25 years. His financial advice is rooted in the 1990s, and as such isn’t as applicable today as it once was.
Arrest Your Debt highlights that the Dave Ramsey Baby Steps Plan has barely changed despite an increase in median household income and other personal finance changes.
Despite the fact that many of his assertions are still relevant and true today, gross household income has increased over the years, impacting the need for larger, fully-funded emergency funds.
The newly launched guide describes what the Baby Steps method involves and how it can help those who are seeking a route out of debt. It also underscores the issues that people will face as they seek to employ the strategies they learn.
The debt reduction plan consists of seven baby steps with a view to protecting individuals and families. The first step is to create a $1,000 emergency fund. It also covers placing three to six months of expenses in savings, college funding for children, and more.
Readers will discover an updated approach to the system, which includes adapting some of the more outdated elements.
The guide states: “To make Dave’s Baby Step 1 more relevant today, I would advise your emergency fund to be funded at least $1,500. However, most people should strive for an emergency savings fund of $2,000 to account for unexpected expenses and major financial emergencies.”
