ELP stands for "Endorsed Local Provider." These are individuals we have thoroughly vetted so that our fans have access to the top professionals who serve in their area.
To become a RamseyTrusted ELP, an individual must be missional. We want to ensure our ELPs are an extension of the Ramsey culture. We look to build relationships with individuals who are fans of The Ramsey Show and promote the financial philosophies that Dave and the other Ramsey Personalities teach on the air. The ELPs should have the “heart of a teacher,” meaning they will not only take the time to explain what to do but also why. We interview each professional and only work with those who commit to serving our fans the way we would if we were in their business.
We require a minimum of 2 years of full-time experience in their field, and they must be either a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) or an EA (Enrolled Agent). Once a CPA or EA becomes a part of the program, they are assigned a personal coach here in our office who provides accountability and mentorship so that the ELP will be successful within our program and continue to serve our fans just as we would!
