Chris is a financial coach for individuals and businesses, event speaker, life coach and motivator for clients across the country. Chris Hogan is an American author, personal finance expert and former radio show host. Hogan began his career as a debt collector, where he frequently encountered people who were struggling financially. He later joined Dave Ramsey's company, Ramsey Solutions, as a financial coach.
Hogan was the host of The Chris Hogan Show, is a public speaker and best-selling author. Chris Hogan is a bestselling author, personal finance expert and a leading voice in retirement, investment and wealth. As part of the Ramsey Solutions team, she helps people of all levels, including people with very high net worth, set meaningful goals and navigate their financial future. Chris has spoken to many people who think Social Security will cover them during retirement.
It is on a mission to help them overcome this misconception, overcome their fears and live lives with purpose and impact. Today, Chris joins the podcast to share the lessons he's learned from working with Dave Ramsey and the happiest (and most unhappy) retirees of the past 15 years, how to define a retirement that works on your own terms, and how to find the right person to help connect the pieces of the puzzle and bring it all together. Ramsey Solutions, owned by Christian financial guru and radio show host Dave Ramsey, has lost one of its best-known personalities. Chris Hogan, who was once seen as a successor to Dave, has announced that he has parted ways with the company.
Ramsey Solutions' website describes its now former employee as “America's leading voice on retirement, investment and wealth creation. Chris, the author of Everyday Millionaires, hosted a popular radio show on Dave's platform and often appeared as a guest host on Dave's show. And too often in this investment world and the financial world, you'll find people who will reject the terms and talk to people. Because a question often for many is: Well, I've already met my financial goals, and, Chris, you're in what I would call an optional work state, so you don't have to keep working to move forward, but you continue to do it and you keep setting goals.
I've been wanting to ask this question to a financial expert for some time and I don't know how to ask it. Working with an advisor who is part of the SmartVestor network cannot guarantee the success of the investment or that financial goals will be achieved. I can't call myself a financial expert, but there are a lot of other people who don't have a license, who don't have the same education. And for me, it's helping people understand these financial things, for people to have clarity in their dreams, but more importantly, to have clarity in their plans.
I read a lot of books, especially financial books, and a lot of them are glorified business cards, I would say, unfortunately. Chris Hogan, once seen as Ramsey's successor, announced in a video on Wednesday (March) that he was no longer with the company. Contrary to what you may have heard, Hogan says wealthy people don't receive financing for their purchases. Formerly a money coach and podcast host at Dave Ramsey's organization, Chris Hogan is now a renowned expert in personal finance with his own following.
And so, for me, part of the reason I made that book was not only to give people a plan, but also to give people permission, permission to dream out loud, permission to clean up any financial mess in front of you. Jim has run his own consulting firm and has taught courses in financial planning at DePaul University and William Rainey Harper Community College. So Dave didn't take action due to the possible financial loss of firing him just before the book came out? .
