126. Total Money Makeover - Pay It Forward



One of the keys to financial success is giving. Dave Ramsey talks a lot about giving. Baby Step 7 is focused on it. However, you don't have to be debt free to give. In this group we want to win with money and part of that means creating a culture of giving as well.

Dave says: “Giving to those in need will bring more joy than money could ever buy.”

So what does it mean to Pay It Forward? Paying it forward can be defined as "responding to another person's kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else."

We have experienced this joy. Would you like to experience it to? The challenge is for you to do one of two things:

Challenge 1:
1a. If you don't own a copy of TMM buy a copy for yourself and your family. If you don’t have money to do so, sell some stuff or work overtime so you can buy a total of 3 copies.
1b. Give a copy of the book to someone in this group.
1c. Give a copy of the book to a friend, family member, or acquaintance with a personalized note stating how the book has impacted your life.
1d. Pass the TMM Pay It Forward Challenge on to someone else by sharing this post! Use the hashtag #TMMPayItForward

Challenge 2:
2a. If you already own a copy of TMM, buy and give away 3 copies of TMM to three people. If you don’t have money to do so, sell some stuff so you can buy the 3 copies.
2b. Give a copy of the book to someone in this group. (See the list pictured below)
2c. Give a copy of the book to a friend, family member, or acquaintance with a personalized note stating how the book has impacted your life.
2d. Give a copy of the book to a complete stranger.
2e. Pass the TMM Pay It Forward Challenge on to someone else by sharing this post! Use the hashtag #TMMPayItForward

Note1: You can buy and mail a good used copy of TMM through Amazon for about $10 shipping included! Dave’s website www.daveramsey.com also usually has some good deals as well. This challenge is absolutely optional. Participate at your own risk. :-)

Note 2: If you are doing The No Spend Challenge you wouldn’t be “breaking” your rules by raising your income (making money by selling some stuff, working overtime, etc.) .
