My first favorite influencer is Dave Ramsey. Dave Ramsey has a blog, books, and he has a youtube channel. By following his baby steps system, I have learned the importance of not only paying off debt quickly, and staying out of it, but also the importance of investing and starting at a young age. He provides all the tools to learn how to do these things very easily. My second favorite influencer is Graham Stephan. Graham Stephan is an influencer and a very successful YouTuber. He publishes daily content by updating his viewers on what is going on with the market, and economy. He is also very big on staying out of debt, but by also maximizing the rewards and free money, that credit cards have to offer. He is very inspiring with his personal story of utilizing the internet to make millions of dollars. My third favorite influencer is Dani Johnson. She is an author, YouTuber, and life coach. She teaches people the importance of being frugal, attacking debt, and she also backs it up with spiritual laws and scripture. She and her team put on huge seminars across the country every year and they have a cool culture.
