I was inspired to post today because my sister is a teacher for a public high school in Central California with a high proportion of minority students in a socially-economically challenged geography. I hold a strong interest in personal finance, and we often talk about cool projects to inspire her students who are college bound.

    I may not follow the sites recommendations to the T, but I’ve picked up a lot of good finance habbits from here, as well as some from Dave Ramsey’s site.

    Thank you and keep it up, Ramit

  95. I’m thoroughly confused – you have all these unrelated statements so that I am having difficulty in understanding what’s going on on your website and the responses don’t make sense.
    Can’t we get better organized? OR – do a better job of explanation!!!
