As an accidental "mompreneur", this book was exactly what I needed. I help lead a team of 9 women and learned that what I wasn't doing, was actually hurting my team! I also loved that so much of the book could be applied to my family... if the family and household organization followed these tips and points, I wonder how much better our communities would be. Everyone should read this book.
This book is amazing. Another great read by Dave Ramsey and his team.
I am amazed by the simple do's and don'ts on business that we all miss.
And you do not have to be self employed to read this. It is a read for everyone.
I listened to this book, all the way through, while on a road trip. It was so great! Dave is enthusiastic and a pleasure to listen to. I am going to listen again soon and take notes. This is a fantastic reference book for all things business and leadership. Job well done Dave!
This was an incredible book. Very inspiring and challenging.
Dave's delivery is funny and raw - he does not deliver in a sophisticated manner - he is real and honest.
This is the best business leadership book I have ever read - and I have read quite a few.
I highly recommend this book if you are unhappy with your current employment condition, looking to start your own business or own your business already.
An audio book loving Aucklander.
Thought this was a good listen. I think there were some good points to go back to (down the track), when we get actually our business more up and running. Some good points to be included in the business plan too. However, in the beginning of the book I would have liked to have heard more about Dave's financial problems when he was younger and how he got there exactly, aside from the fact he over extended himself finanically. He mentions at the beginning he has a strong Christian faith, however, he didn't drone on too much on this particular point which I appreciated. It comes up throughout, but more as an aside thankfully. Well done Dave and family on your success in helping others be more financially successful and secure.
This is a great book for new business owners, existing business owners as well as folks you are developing to run your business. Some great insights. Great to hear how Dave runs his company. Also, anytime you can have a book read by an excited author is worth it!
OK that might be an exaggeration but had I read this book 25 years ago before starting my first business, I could have avoided dozens of problems, saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and pushed up growth by at least a decade.....assuming I was wise enough as a 24 year old skull of mush to put the wisdom into practice. I learned many of these lessons the hard way. If you're starting a company, you must start here.
No - While there is some good advice from Dave's experience, I was happy when it ended. Dave's style is very loud and out there and full of references to his evangelical Christian beliefs. If you're not into hearing references to the Bible etc. every 5 to 10 minutes then look elsewhere.
This is not a book for entrepreneurs that want to have staff that can innovate. This book is more about how to motivate and control staff, not inspire them to innovate new products or product features.
