Chris Hogan speaks to people all over the nation about how to make better moves with their money. As one of Ramsey Solution’s speakers, he has the opportunity to address thousands of people who are looking for knowledge, solutions, and answers to their money problems.
It’s not about numbers, it’s about stories
One of the ways he gets his message across is by telling stories. Stories, as Joe Saul-Sehy says, is what’s missing in today’s financial media. Chris Hogan agrees that personal testimonies can open the door to learning about money and making changes for our own good.
“A lot of us come to deal with money based on our own preconceived notions, our own failures, and our own knowledge. Much of this was based on how you were raised – how was money talked about and how do you view it. It doesn’t matter where I came from or what I knew…it became a matter of what I’m learning and what am I doing as I move forward.”
Chris says his lightbulb moment was after he went “looking” at an SUV and came home with a $600 vehicle payment. He ran the numbers on how much the money could have become if he’d invested it rather than driving it and it became his wake-up moment.
Becoming an Everyday Millionaire
Chris Hogan and Ramsey Solutions are working with a research firm to study the habits and behaviors of over 10,000 millionaires. What they are finding is that people of all walks of life can become millionaires, and the book offers stories from some of the people in the study.

Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month!
Here’s how it works: First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.
Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
