Karen Ramsey’s Story
Karen Ramsey, CFP® grew up on a farm in Loveland, Colorado. Her family was poor, and her parent's lifestyle as farmers made a lasting impression . Karen’s dad woke up every morning at 4:30 to milk the cows and worked in the fields all day. He'd fall asleep exhausted every night just after dinner, seven days a week. Work was her parent's whole life. Karen learned as a little girl that "You have to work hard"—and yet, "You never get ahead.” Her lifestyle and view on hard work was about to change. After putting herself through college, she discovered her life's calling—to work with people and their money and treat people the way she wanted to be treated. She opened her financial planning practice on October 1, 1990. Karen’s reputation and customer base grew to the point that Ramsey & Associates soon found it difficult to keep up with demand. To stay ahead, she did what any booming business would do and raised her rates and minimum portfolio sizes. Soon she was managing portfolios for many affluent people in the Seattle area. While it made perfect business sense to work with the wealthy, it conflicted with her personal ethic. Her heart was hurting for all the people who needed assistance with their investments but could no longer afford her. She thought of her parents, and the many good people who helped her grow from a young woman into a business leader, and dedicated herself to find a solution. That solution became RamseyInvesting.com. RamseyInvesting.com provides virtual, high quality, fee-only advice to those that can’t afford the high minimums most financial advisors impose and is often be a barrier to quality financial advice. In addition to her financial planning work, Karen has made it a personal mission to educate people about how to have a positive, stress-free relationship with money, a relationship that supports their quest to pursue whatever their heart and soul desire in this life. Through her workshops and her two books, Think Again: New Money Choices, Old Money Myths and Caring for Your Soul in Money Matters®, she helps people to understand how just a little information and small shifts in thinking can have a profound and lasting impact on their lives.
