It was all very Daddy Warbucks from Annie in my mind. Now, I suppose there are billionaires like that but the ones I’m going to focus on today are the ones we should be looking up to.

When you read about Dave Ramsey’s baby steps, the one thing you won’t often read is that Dave encourages people to give while they pay off debt. This can contradict every single thought that our brains tell us is rational. I get it. If you want to get out of debt and have more money, why would you give some away? There are a thousand different debatable reasons as to why someone might do this. Our reasoning is probably different than you think.

Considering that 71% of all workers in the United States say they are in debt, it’s no surprise that one income families are seen less and less.
