Investing for the future

Ramsey is a big proponent of the importance of investing for the long term. In a February blog post, he wrote: “A solid investment strategy gives you focus, clarity and direction — and you need all three to become a successful investor.”

But having this clarity and direction is easier said than done, whether you're just starting to build your portfolio or looking ro expand it.

Luckily, there are investing platforms out there that come equipped with expert guidance so you can start building your wealth without having to become an investing savant.

From informational articles and market reports to a community of more than half a million investors and more, Stock Advisor is a one-stop shop for valuable investing tips to help you diversify and improve your portfolio — or your money back.

Grow your money with real estate

Research published by The National Association of Realtors in February found that home prices are on the rise in 85% of U.S. cities, with the median price of a new home sitting at $430,700 in March according to The U.S. Census Bureau. With mortgage rates also still hovering near 7%, it shouldn’t come as a shock that many Gen Zers and millennials aren’t yet able to purchase their first home.

That being said, even if you’re not able to purchase a home, you can still invest in the real estate market in a number of ways.

Ramsey himself is passionate about earning passive income through real estate, and in a March blog post suggested investing in residential and vacation rentals, with the caveat that “renting out a house isn’t for the faint of heart — even if you hire a property manager.”

If you’re looking for an accessible option to invest in vacation and rental properties, Arrived is an online platform that allows you to invest in shares of these types of properties without having to navigate the workload and hassles of property management. — comes into play.

Prioritize planning

Recently, the hashtag #daveramseywouldntapprove on TikTok has appeared across thousands of posts and millions of views. In these videos, millennials and Gen Z are exposing their money habits that the financial guru in question definitely wouldn't approve of — like a Disney World shopping spree on credit or a $16 cocktail.

Creating a budget and overall financial plan can be the exact spark you need to ignite to improve your financial situation. In a video with his daughter Rachel Cruze on her YouTube channel, Ramsey shared that getting on a budget is one of the best things you can do with your money in 2024.

He quipped that “no one accidentally wins the Super Bowl, The World Series or the World Cup.”
