 Stair Story: Patrick Dichter Pays off $32,000, Dave Ramsey shouts out to Southwestern and Take the Stairs! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

One of the blessings of my life recently is that on a fairly regular basis people say “reading Take the Stairs changed my life!” I often wonder what, if any, specific changes they made in their life and if it really (hopefully) made a difference but for Patrick Dichter it definitely did! Patrick was a teenager when I first met him. He’s been a winner as long as I’ve known him and so it was only natural that I played a small role in recruiting him to spend his summers in college working for Southwestern Advantage. After a successful career selling books with Southwestern while he was a student at the University of Denver (my alma matter), Patrick decided to move onto some other things. Imagine my shock and surprise when Patrick sent me an email yesterday telling me this awesome story… Patrick explained that after reading a blog I wrote highlighting Dave Ramsey’s plan for getting out of personal debt Patrick bought Dave’s book, The Total Money Makeover, and began following the principles. Like so many thousands of people (including myself) who have followed Dave Ramsey’s advice and started listening to his show, Patrick paid off over $32,000 in debt in just 11 months!!!! Patrick then called into the Dave Ramsey show yesterday and did the famous “Debt Free Scream”! During his conversation with Dave he told the whole story about the principles he learned from Southwestern about taking action and focusing on the things he could control. That also gave Dave a chance to share some of his thoughts about the Southwestern program and also Dave was nice enough to give us a little plug for the Take the Stairs book. Dave was one of the authors whose endorsement is on the back cover of “Take the Stairs” but you can listen to the his whole conversation with Patrick here: Listen to the full conversation here! http://roryvaden.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/DebtFree-Patrick.mp3 CONGRATULATIONS to PATRICK DICHTER for taking action and getting debt free! Yours is a great real life “Stair Story” and we’re so proud of you! For everyone in debt, make sure you check out and start following Dave Ramsey as he has a proven non-scam system for getting out of debt the right way. And may all of you take significant action like Patrick on all good things you learn from what you read! See you in the stairwell, Rory Vaden, MBA is Cofounder of Southwestern Consulting, Self-Discipline Strategist and Speaker, and New York Times bestselling author of Take the Stairs.
