Karen Ramsey's Story

I grew up on a farm in Loveland, Colorado. My family was poor, and my parent's lifestyle as farmers made a lasting impression on me. My 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 my parent's whole life. I learned as a little girl that "You have to work hard"—and yet, "You never get ahead."

After putting myself through college, I discovered my life's calling—to work with people and their money and treat people the way I wanted to be treated. I opened my financial planning practice on October 1, 1990. Over time, my reputation and customer base grew to the point that Ramsey & Associates soon found it difficult to keep up with demand. So, we did what any booming business would do and raised our rates and minimum portfolio size.

While this made perfect business sense, it conflicted with my personal ethic—I couldn't forget the people who needed help but could no longer afford us. I thought of my parents, and the many good people who helped me grow from a young woman into a business leader, and dedicated myself to find a solution.
