The Secret Society of Happy People hosts the national Hunt for Happiness week happening January 17-23, 2010.
While the SSOHPs suggest ways to celebrate that include passing out I Spy Happiness coupons and recapturing happy moments from childhood, what could make a happier new year than making a pledge and getting out of debt.
Dave Ramsey, financial guru and get out of debt champion, can be found promoting his seven baby steps for getting out of debt from Good Morning America to Fox News to his daily three hour radio program (which can be heard from 10am to 2pm on WIBA 1310 here in Madison).
If getting out of debt and learning to manage your finances more effectively is on your to-do list this year, you can attend one of Dave's 13 week Financial Peace University at one of these locations around the Madison area beginning in February.
