Listeners loved my previous Chris Hogan interview (listen here). The best-selling author of Everyday Millionaires gained national notoriety as a Ramsey Personality and best-selling author. Some even wondered if he was next in line to take over Ramsey Solutions. But then he simply vanished from the airwaves. His show was removed, and his social media profiles were erased. What happened?
Hogan’s book challenged the common belief millionaires are an elite class. His data showed Americans that most millionaires are self-made and not trust-fund babies. In the largest study of millionaires to date, Hogan showed unequivocally that anyone can be a millionaire.
What happened to Chris Hogan?
Chris Hogan and Ramsey Solutions parted ways in March of 2021. Details of the separation have not been shared by Hogan or Ramsey Solutions outside of a short video from Hogan saying that some of his actions didn’t align with the Ramsey brand. It’s easy to find rumors online, but outside of audio from Dave Ramsey confirming accusations had been made to a prominent employee, neither party has confirmed anything.
Similarly, nothing was confirmed when prominent Ramsey personalities Christy Wright and Anthony O’Neal left the company soon after Hogan’s departure. It’s important to point out both had positive things to say about the company upon their departure.
In early March, Hogan posted an “I’m back” post on LinkedIn and agreed to come back on my show. During our discussion, Hogan informs me his previous role where his previous role focused on retirement and finance, his new brand will be more focused on personal lessons and individual performance.
We discuss how leaders become control freaks, why that’s bad for employees, and how to get through life’s “stuff.” And of course, we touch on inflation, rising interest rates, and why Hogan believes these will calm back down in the near future.
For Chris Hogan fans, you can expect leadership and personal development courses coming to his website in the near future.
