The whole "being weird" thing Dave talks about isn't just a marketing line. Sometimes, I really do feel that way when it comes to financial decisions. There are people in my life who don't think seriously about financial decisions from big things to little things and when asked my opinion, I really do feel like I am sitting out in right field by myself. I know the looks I get of "Geez - someone else brainwashed by Dave". Yes, those looks make me feel weird.
So as someone who works for this online community, when I do smart things with money, the people there make me feel normal again. I like that.
Here's a blurb from the site:
What would you call someone who has no car payment, no credit card debt and has a lot of cash saved for emergencies? In today's world, you'd call them weird. And that's exactly what they are! Normal is just another way to say broke; so who wants to be normal? Would you rather be weird and have money and peace of mind, or would you rather be broke and just like everyone else? When you join Dave Ramsey's My Total Money Makeover, you'll learn how to be weird; and how much fun it is too!
