Category: Culture

Every day, we work together to create something bigger than ourselves. We work to change lives. We work to give hope. And we don’t just pay lip service to these ideals—our values are the DNA of our culture.

And what a culture it is! Our team members are provided the opportunity to attend Financial Peace University from the very first day. Our leadership takes pride in kicking everyone out of the office by 5:30 so we spend our evenings with family instead of hunkered down at our desks, and Dave provides a free catered lunch once a month. Team members enjoy a no-gossip policy, loads of free products, legendary Christmas parties … the list goes on and on. We work hard, but we also play hard.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it! Dave’s company has been recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the BEST places to work in Nashville six times in a row! Our leadership truly believes that when you treat team members with excellence, you get excellent results.

Ninja Turtle DISC

So around here we use a personality assessment called the DISC Profile System. You may have heard us talk about it before. As part of the assessment, they sometimes use animals to represent the categories: Lion for the D Otter for the I Golden Retriever for the S Beaver for the C A true computer […] 

Encouraging Your Teammates

Encouraging Your Teammates

A few weeks ago, I gave a presentation on a script I wrote to simplify my workflow with some automation.  I shared it with the hope that some of my teammates could utilize it, and if not,  then at the very least, inspire them to look for ways to automate and simplify. The following week, […] 

Merry Christmas!!

On behalf of us, from Chuck Norris…    

Dare to Disagree

Dare to Disagree

In today’s environment of political correctness, people have become timid and maybe even a bit scared to speak their mind and convey their point of view out of fear of offending someone. While there is an appropriate level of respect and professionalism when having a conversation, you should not abandon your thoughts and principles simply […] 

Emotional Emergency Fund

Emotional Emergency Fund

Here at Dave Ramsey’s company, we are all pretty familiar with the Baby Steps. Tried, true and time-proven, we know they work. I found myself thinking recently that they might just expand beyond the realm of finance . . . maybe they can help in my day-to-day interactions? What is Baby Step 1? Say it […] 

Living Through the Week

Living Through the Week

I’m generally an easily excitable person. I mean, my son being born, I’m excited. First day of school. I’m excited. New app update to Angry Birds on my iPad? Yup, I’m excited. That’s just how I’m wired. I remember a few years back getting hired on at a place and was absolutely on top of […] 

Roadblock

Roadblock

Ever get into those situations where things are moving along nice and easy for a while, then out of nowhere, bam! You hit a roadblock. When we hit walls like that around here, we call on our good friend Marvin F. Hinton, also known as Roadblock from the G.I. Joe cartoon. Whenever someone on our […] 

No Talk Thursday

No Talk Thursday

While on a recent trip to visit family and friends, I had the opportunity to catch up with some former co-workers. In speaking with several of them, I realized how truly blessed I am and how truly “weird” this company is. Every person I spoke with bemoaned the day-to-day corporate drudgery; the summary of which […] 

Work you love at a place you love

Work you love at a place you love

The last several days have been, well, sudden. On Thursday last week, my dad went from living life as a normal, carefree person to having quintuple bypass surgery. He is 53, and he thought he was in relatively good health. He even passed his physical four months ago with flying colors. It was definitely out […] 

The Blessing of Variety

The Blessing of Variety

This past weekend I was reminded of what a blessing it is to live in a world full of such variety. I was at the grocery store after church and ready to check out. I didn’t have a lot of groceries, but unfortunately I had too many items to zip through the quick checkout lane. […]
