You've heard the old saying,
"If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you have fed him for a lifetime."
At Sheepdog Support Co., we strive to provide life skills that our military and veterans can use to change their future. Financial Peace University has been used all around the world to get families out of debt and winning with money. I’ll be honest - this program is not easy. It involves discipline and hard work. This is not a get rich quick scheme and is definitely not for the lazy.
But it works.
Financial Peace University For Veterans
One of our very first programs we decided to offer was Financial Peace University for Veterans. Financial Peace University is a financial management course that is designed to teach you about money and the human behaviors that can make or break your path to success. Chad and I took this course as a family and we decided to require each person involved in our organization to take this course as well - that's how much we stand by it.
When Chad first was put on LOD, a form of temporary military disability, there were a lot of unknowns. Unfortunately we didn't have a plan for him being out of work and were not able to afford living on my income alone. We quickly went into debt and were close to losing our home. Luckily, we had help from both of our parents, and were able to work with the bank on adjusting our home loan. Coming out of situations like that you have to sit and reflect at what you could have done differently. So when I heard Dave Ramsey's radio show, I knew exactly what we needed to do to make sure this didn't happen again. The rest is hard work and discipline. Within several months we were out of debt on everything except our mortgage and are now putting money away for retirement, kids college funds, and paying off our home early.
So just what exactly is this course and why would I choose it over any other course? In this financial management course, Dave Ramsey shows you the connection between money and human behavior. The behavior we as humans have toward money is the number one reason why so many people fail with money - there is no discipline. In this course you will learn the following important skills:
- Communicating with your spouse
- How to teach your kids about money
- How to attack debt
- Handling collectors
- What types of insurance you need
- How to save
- Planning for retirement and college
- And so much more!
The kit comes with a workbook that has all the lesson notes you need from the videos which you will get on-demand access to. You can choose to take the course online or with a local group. You’ll receive an activation code for a free year trial with their budgeting app, EveryDollar, Dave Ramsey’s book, Complete Guide to Money, and a few other promotional products like stickers and bookmarks.
Lastly, with some discipline, this kit will provide you financial freedom. This course costs the average consumer $149 dollars. Thanks to our generous donors, we provide you with the opportunity of a life free from debt, a chance to build wealth, and a financial life like no one else, at no cost to you.
