With the advent of social media and digital marketing, a lot of people these days are calling themselves experts. Even a no-name brand can appear genuine and reputed. With so many personal finance gurus claiming to be the best in the business, it has become imperative to stick to the ones who have already proved their worth. In this post, I have talked about five such personal finance gurus.
Here Are the Best Personal Finance Public Speakers to Learn From in 2020
1) Dave Ramsey
Currently, Dave Ramsey is popular for his YouTube channel, The Dave Ramsey Show. On his show, Dave answers questions sent by his fans from all across the country. Unlike other personal finance gurus who start public speaking or coaching from a young age, Dave began his journey quite late.
He used to be a real estate investor making a whopping $250,000 a year. Unfortunately, he had to see some bad days due to the market crash of 2008. This is where he learned the personal finance coaching trade. Subscribe to his YouTube channel to learn more about him.
2) Ramit Sethi
Ramit Sethi is an Indian-Canadian Personal Finance guru who teaches people how to win big instead of saving $3-$4 each day– by not having your favorite coffee drink. His approach to making money is a bit out there. He came to the limelight with his New York Times bestselling book I Will Teach You To Be Rich. Ramit gives away 98 percent of his best material for free.
3) Grant Cardone

Just like Dave Ramsey, Grant Cardone started his money-making journey by investing in real estate. Currently, Grant has published more than 10 bestselling books and also flies around in private jet to give lectures across the nation.
4) Robert Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki is a Japanese-American real estate investor, best selling author, and personal finance consultant. He is a big proponent of using money to make more money. He is also quite against the idea of working for someone else or being self-employed.
