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.
postive attitude towards looking at things. Message given in books is like hard to releate
using different tone
I was disappointed by the fact that Dave Ramsey's business was debt counseling. He then packaged his debt counseling program and sold it to the congregations of churches by giving it a religious spin. I'm not a religious person but I sometimes attend church with my wife and they have peddled his program on several occasions. It must be a way for the church to make extra money. Now his business is telling us about how successful he was in selling these programs. I have never had a high opinion of businesses in this arena as I feel like they often prey on the weak and unfortunate and don't provide any real value to their customers. They often just leave them in a worse place. The book and his philosophies are also often based on his religion. He often quotes passages in the bible. That isn't something I'm looking for in a business book.
No, I read a lot of books in the genre. I just wouldn't read another Dave Ramsey book.
I'm not surprised that he read it himself. It seems like his ego is enormous. I don't think he has a very good narrating style as he is almost shouting most of what he reads.
I'm sure some of his advice is illegal. The book does not have a good flow to it. It is littered with christian reifications and beliefs.
I liked when he talked about business morality while leaving out his personal discriminations.
I'm new to audiobooks but it was a great first pick.
There was something in every chapter that I can and need to apply.
He was obviously passionate about the material.
Dave Ramsey is giving you a metric ton of great advice in this book. As a small business owner, I was happy to nod my head listening in affirmation and confirmation while getting a ton of new education too.
Dave Ramsey reads his work like he runs his financial talk show, conversationally and real. The common sense advice about business and leadership adds a few noteworthy twists, but even the advice heard before sounds fresh with Dave's presentation.
Dave Ramsey is a character. He never soft petals his advice.
Self-made hard-punching businessman gives grandmotherly advice to young self-starters and manages to keep his teeth in.
I listened to this book and have now purchased the hard copy to keep as a reference guide. Dave as the narrator was great and kept me entertained.
DAVE RAMSEY and his team have done it again this is going to be a huge title.
