A Bodey in Motion

Building momentum, one step at a time

Nashville is a Groovy Little Town

I’m spending this week away from home, soaking up some of the lovely Tennessee atmosphere and charm.

Before we go any further, though, I’d like everyone to take a moment and say a quick prayer for my family. I don’t like spending so much time away from them. I know they’ll be fine. I also know that they mean the world to me and that prayer works.

So, what’s so important that I’d fly over halfway across the country and separate myself from those that I am so blessed to be loved by?

This guy.

Specifically, I’m going to spend a week going through Dave Ramsey’s Counselor Training. I wanted to become better at helping people who are having money troubles, and the pieces all neatly fell into place for me to attend, so here I am. Based on all of the introductory material, they’re going to cover a lot of information, which means it will be a bit like taking a sip from a fire hose. At least it won’t be boring.

I don’t think there is going to be any sight-seeing this time around. I would love to see more of Nashville, but I need to take the time to rest so I can absorb what I’m here to learn. I’m hoping to briefly see Dave doing his radio show, since I’ll be right there. (No ‘Debt-Free Scream’ for me, though. The house isn’t paid off yet.) I’m sure that we’ll bring the family back to Nashville another time.

I am sure that I’ll have more to share once the week is over, but right now. I need to get a little more rest before the first day of training. A late night flight plus a touch of jet lag is making for a rough morning.

If you could have the answer to one money question, what would it be?
