A Review of EntreLeadership, a New Book by Dave Ramsey

I first met Dave Ramsey in the early 1990s. At the time, he was the co-host of a local radio show called, The Money Game. He had also self-published a book called Financial Peace, which was later picked up by Viking and became a New York Times bestseller.

I had the privilege of working with Dave on the launch of his book, The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness. It become a mega-bestseller, selling over four million copies since it first came out in 2003. In fact, month after month, it is still one of Thomas Nelson’s top ten bestsellers. It is the first book that I recommend to couple’s wanting to get control of their finances and improve their marriage.

Today, Dave is the host of his own nationally-syndicated radio program, The Dave Ramsey Show, which is heard by 4.5 million listeners each week, on more than five hundred radio stations throughout the United States. In addition, his company is a veritable army of entrepreneurs. I have witnessed first-hand, how he has developed his leaders to become leaders of leaders.

That’s why I am particularly excited about his newest book, EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches. It is full of practical wisdom, battle-tested by a real leader who has built a dynamic company from the ground up.

What’s “EntreLeadership,” you ask? Dave defines it this way: “[It is] the process of leading to cause a venture to grow and prosper.” He says that he arrived at this term because,

… growing leaders was too refunded and calm for me, but growing entrepreneurs was too wild and chaotic for me. So I decided we needed to grow a combination of the two … and thus the EntreLeader was born.”

Here are three reasons why I think you should read this important book:

  1. It is like having Dave as your personal business coach. As the old saying goes, you can learn from your own mistakes or someone else’s. Dave graduated from the University of Hard Knocks. He knows first-hand what it’s like meet a weekly payroll, lose money on some ventures, and win big on others. In short, EntreLeadership is everything Dave has learned in twenty years of slugging it out on the business battlefield.
  2. It contains Dave’s practical, proven leadership advice. If you are looking for the next big leadership fad, this book is not for you. It’s not a book of clever theories or armchair speculation. Instead, EntreLeadership is Dave’s playbook—a collection of the strategies and tactics he has used for the last twenty years to create a powerful media empire.
  3. It covers everything you will likely face as a business leader. Dave covers such things as:
    • Living your dreams, visions, mission statements, and goals
    • Making the most of time management and organization
    • Making the hard decisions
    • Understanding the truth about great marketing
    • Hiring, firing, and personality styles
    • Practicing the art of selling by serving
    • Money, debt, and funding your future
    • Grasping the importance of great communication
    • Amplifying your success through recognition and inspiration
    • Dealing with contracts, vendors, and collections
    • Creating compensation plans that fire people up
    • Mastering the art of delegation

If you own a business, are thinking about starting a business, or just want to lead well in the business you’re in, this book is for you. I also think leaders in churches and non-profits would do well to read it, since Dave’s entire philosophy is build on a solid biblical foundation.

    Entrepreneurs are actually leaders in their own right. They usually lead the way in innovation and ultimately provide a platform and take on responsibility for the lives and dreams of  men and women who join them on the quest. I believe this book will aid me as i embark on my journey into entrepreneurship as well as help me in my ministry commitments (i have responsibility for a team of young volunteers).

  • http://www.christianfaithatwork.com Chris Patton

    I am a third generation family business owner that is trying to run my automobile business as a “vehicle” for ministry.  I write a blog called Christian Faith At Work in an effort to teach and encourage others how to run their business in the same way, from an eternal perspective.

    I think this book by Dave Ramsey is a perfect fit for where I am today.  I am a learner and a teacher.  I will take this book, study it, and use the material to (1) Become a better EntreLeader myself, (2) Run a more successful business by developing other EntreLeaders within our organization, and (3) Reach out to other like-minded business owners and leaders in an effort to teach them how to do the same thing (and likely create more sales for the book!).

    Thank you for the opportunity to have this book!

  • http://www.sundijo.com Sundi Jo Graham

    I love the topics it covers on being a business leader. This certainly goes beyond business, but everything. I’m learning about personality styles and conflicts right now. Would love to dig into his wisdom and learn more. 

  • Timothy Fish

    Wow! Dave Ramsey sounds angry. It makes me want to ask him, “Are you saying this isn’t just ‘another leadership theory book’?”

    • http://brevis.me Robert Ewoldt

      Huh? If you’ve ever listened to Dave or read any of his other books, you’d know that he’s anything but angry. Also, this book is not a “theory” book; it’s a practical book built from years of experience.

    • http://www.needleforthechristianbubble.com Joe Lalonde

      I watched the video and Dave did not come across angry to me. However, I wouldn’t blame him if he was angry. There’s reason to be angry when you’ve got poor leadership running a company into the ground, teachers teaching incorrect leadership, and more. I think Dave’s book is going to be a runaway hit due to his down to earth and easy to follow principles.

    • Stanley Schubert

      I don’t think he is angry…what he is we call passionate and that is part of being successful. 

    • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

      I use the word “aggressive truth” to describe Dave’s writing style. He’s passionate about business and finances. Interesting to get another take on how he sounds.

  • Alan Kay

    Entrepreneurs are often exceptionally good a few things, but miss what they need to do better (usually, through other people). Dave’s book will open them up to the parts they miss, some of which they can do themselves and some of which they can learn to get done by others.   

  • Fr. Peter Preble

    Dave Ramsey changed my life!  It is becasue of him I can live like no ones else!  If this book is half the book the total money makeover was it will be a smash hit.

    My hope is that this book will do for leaders what Total Money Makeover has done for people who are in debit.  We need long term solutions not quick fix quipy remarks and I am sure Dave Ramsey is just the guy to make that happen!

    • http://www.facebook.com/carina.brunson Carina A. Wyant Brunson

      It’s nice when that freedom comes. Friends of mine had a car accident recently and were glad they have been doing the Money Makeover and the totaled car was paid off. Now they won’t have as much trouble finding a replacement vehicle once they get finished jumping through insurance hoops. My husband and I have a couple more years, but we will get there soon as well.

      Long term solutions are definitely needed more in this society. Short term solutions/fixes just don’t last long enough and don’t really fix the problem.

    • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

      Ditto on your thoughts–TMM was a great book, helped a lot of folks including my wife and me, and EntreLeadership will most likely make a life-changing impact on many lives.

      I read Carina’s example about a car accident and am reminded of how prepared we were financially when a deer decided to play chicken with our car. We didn’t have to wait for the insurance to pay up to replace our vehicle. Though we don’t make the big bucks, we live with financial freedom.

      • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.wax Kevin Wax

        You may not make the big “bucks” (God actually makes the big “bucks”) but thank the Lord that He saved you from one big “buck”. But it could have been some doe (dough). Oh deer!

        • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

          Hilarious play on words and wonderful expression of the truth. And, although I wrote “deer,” you’re right. I hit the big buck God made.

  • megan strange

    I’m very interested in a copy of EntreLeadership and would love a free copy!  We are huge Dave Ramsey fans in our house.  My husband and I completely changed our lifestyle a few years ago after attending a Live Total Money Makeover Event.  We didn’t have far to go to be debt-free, but what changed the most about our lives was realizing that God was calling us to help people gain victory in the area of their finances.  We currently teach Financial Peace University at our church as a Sunday School class and love every minute of it!

    EntreLeadership is intriguing to me because Dave’s principles for finances hold true for every area of leadership.  If you are not intentional about planning, you will lose the opportunity to leverage your influence for the glory of God and the good of others.  As a high school principal, I look forward to incorporating Dave’s principles with my staff and with our students.

    • http://www.facebook.com/carina.brunson Carina A. Wyant Brunson

      I would only think that good things will come out from Dave Ramsey. He has been able to change so many lives already with Money Makeover, this book, I am sure, will continue to change even more lives.

      Congrats on being able to teach Financial Peace University at your church. There are so many couples at my church doing the Money Makeover program I would love to get Dave Ramsey down here for something but it would be nice to just get a group together and talk about how we are doing this in our own lives and share success stories, and downs, with each other as well in our church atmosphere… may bring that up at church some time.

      The influence of our Heavenly Father in everything we do can only strengthen us and our actions.

  • Kary Oberbrunner

    I would like this book because I believe it will help me in the current context I find myself in. I am a leader and an entrepreneur. It seems like David hits both roles with both barrels. And I’d like to be shot with his wisdom. 

  • http://successbeginstoday.org/wordpress John Richardson

    Michael, if there is one thing I need in my life right now, it’s a personal business coach. Dave Ramsey offers the “tough love,” that so many people need. I went through a pre-cursor to Dave’s money makeover program in the late 80’s which totally changed my marriage, my business outlook, and my life. When you can get a handle on finances, you can then focus on expanding your opportunities.

    I like Dave’s “entre-leadership” concept. So many of us in this economy are looking for ways to build a business, communicate with a platform, and take on the new decade with a powerful new vision. This book sounds like the handbook we all need.

    Thanks for making resources like this available to so many people. I can’t wait to put this into action!

  • http://twitter.com/TheGreatDanaJ Dana J.

    I would love a copy of this book because I recently parted ways with my last job and entrepreneurship is my heart’s true desire!

    • http://www.needleforthechristianbubble.com Joe Lalonde

      Dana, congrats on heading out on the new road. You’ll do great!

  • Alex Hyman

    I currently operate two small business’ one of which is a family business and I’m looking forward to diving into Dave’s new book.  I feel like this is a book everyone that owns a business or thinking about starting a business should read.

  • http://dmbaldwin.wordpress.com/ Dave Baldwin

    First, thank you Michael for reviewing this book. I trust your point of view and after reading the reviews on Amazon I was a bit conflicted.
    There are two areas in my life where I could use a book like this one written by Dave Ramsey. 
    First, I am an Executive Pastor in a church that averages 2,500 in attendance on the weekends and I am always looking for leadership books that will help me grow in my role at our church. It sounds like this book will be a great resource.
    Second, we have a daughter who has Down Syndrome. She’s 37 years old. Last year she came home to live with us. Erin had been living in a residential facility in the Midwest. She was put on a waiting list for state funding to find jobs, etc. I felt like having her sit at home not doing anything for several years was unacceptable. So we started a coffee roasting business for her. It started out quite small. We thought roasting 20 pounds a week was a big deal. And Erin loves her job and work. Well it has grown and grown. We’ve had to hire staff and ship coffee all over the country and have a number of accounts here in Maryland. I’m new at this business stuff and a book like Dave’s will help me be a good steward of this idea of coffee roasting God has given us.
    Thanks so much. I read your blog everyday. It has helped me and others on our church staff in a huge way.

    • http://brevis.me Robert Ewoldt

      Dave, it sounds like you have a nice little business going on there.

    • http://www.needleforthechristianbubble.com Joe Lalonde

      Dave, that’s amazing! Great to hear that your coffee business is growing. Do you have a website for it and would you be willing to share it?

  • http://lancemorgan.me Lance Morgan

    My wife and I have read both Financial Peace, and The Total Money Makeover. We’ve been through the Financial Peace course study and applied Dave’s teachings to our finances.

    WOW! is all I can say about the out come. We became debt free at age 25, and after only a year of being married.

    If Dave’s financial books could have that big of an impact on us, I can only imagine what a leadership book will do.

    Thanks for this opportunity.

  • http://jasonfountain.blogspot.com Jason Fountain

    This looks like a great book, Michael. I just started my blog back in April and it has been hugely challenging and fulfilling. I am very interested in becoming an entrepreneur as I move forward with my blog. I have huge respect for the business that Dave has built and for the foundation that he has built it upon. I know I could learn a ton from this book. 

    If I get this book, I’ll stand outside my front door with a huge Michael Hyatt poster and shout, “Freeeeeeeedddddddddooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmm!”

  • Charlie Pharis

    I’ve been looking forward to this book since I heard Dave talk about it at the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast back in May. I don’t consider myself to be an entrepreneur, but I do have leadership responsibilities as a pastor. I hope to discover some practical strategies, but most importantly, I hope to further develop the attitudes and aptitudes to become a more effective leader. Thanks!

  • http://twitter.com/mikhailbaynes Mikhail Baynes

    I’m a young entrepreneur and it’s always great to learn from those that have walked the path that you want to walk. Thanks Michael for this opportunity with EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches. Keep leading and inspiring!

  • Asa Veek

    Over the years, I’ve been impressed with Ramsey’s straight-forward, practical advice. As someone facing an impending career change, I value input from wherever I can get it. This book would be valuable in my next role.

  • Tommy McMahan

    I have just started my own non-profit organization coming from the pastoral world. If there is one type of coach that I personally need, it is one that teaches financial foundations to entrepreneurs. Trusted coaches are very hard to come by, especially those who understand the mindset of those who launch in faith. Thank you for considering those of us who are starting out and, if I am selected or not, thanks for creating this opportunity to invest in the lives of others.

  • Brett Gorney

    Thank you for all you do Michael and the great insights to leadership you offer up daily! I would love a copy of this book Michael!  20 months ago, I made the best decision of my life to accept Christ as my savior.  I was baptized at Buckhead Church in Atlanta and have been learning and absorbing bits of wisdom from great leaders like Andy Stanley, John Maxwell, Rick Warren…and not to leave out yourself and your blog!  Dave’s “Total Money Makeover” was pivotal in leading me out of debt and I would love to read his thoughts & insights on leadership! 

  • http://twitter.com/paulchapmantn01 Paul Chapman

    I am in the process of starting a new business and want to do it right. I don’t think there is a better example in America for Christian business and leadership advice than Dave Ramsey.

  • Holly Moore

    As a leader of a growing non-profit organization, my primary goal over the next 12-18 months is to develop a strategic plan for scaling the work we do.  I am making decisions about team members, service models, budgets, etc. that will impact us for years ahead.  I’m excited to learn from Dave and implement the practices he put in place to build a business that God is using to impact so many people…and he did it in a practical, healthy, and life-giving way. 

  • Perry Holley

    Great review Michael. I have always used Dave Ramsey concepts when coaching and mentoring my younger friends about their finances and their marriages. This book sounds like another great Dave Ramsey teaching that I can apply to my own life and business. I would love to have a copy of the book.

  • Chad3041

    I have read about Dave Ramsey and I am currently on a journey to take my passion and make it my full time job. In order to do this, I have spent hours learning about internet marketing and working on getting my debt wiped out. In order to be a leader and become “unemployable” I have had to honestly answer very hard questions. This has allowed me to become a better person and a better communicator with my wife. I feel a book like this would help be a road map on my journey to finding my primary color in life.

  • http://www.briandavidokeefe.com Brian David O’Keefe

    Listening to Dave Ramsey is what encouraged us to go whole hog toward paying off our house. Once we did that, it opened up possibilities that I hadn’t considered before. Namely, I was able to leave the corporate world (and huge salary and benefits) a year ago to start my own business, funding it and living off our savings. I’m good with money management, but now I need Dave’s entrepreneurship coaching to help my business become sustainable.

  • Lize Wordsworth

    I need this book to add to my toolkit as I am
    new at being a business leader, and need all the help I can get to achieve success
    in this endeavour. I would like to learn the lessons my predecessors have
    learnt the hard way quicker. People are most important asset and I would like
    to learn how to lead and manage them and myself in the most effective and
    efficient way possible.

  • Mike

    I have sadly experienced a divorce almost a year ago.  Since then, my financial situation has been a tick below luke warm.  I am not progressing.   Though my spiritual life is much better than it was a year ago, my financial path
    (for myself and my son-single dad) needs to be honed as well. I dont find myself spending in unenecessary areas but I am certain that Dave Ramsey’s book can shed some light on that. I have always heard good things about Dave Ramsey and I cannot get enough of your blog.  I will probably never meet Dave Ramsey in person so I figure this would be the closest I can get to his personal business coach bus.

    I am new to the business world having no extensive background in business. I’m presently studying for the GMAT in hopes of getting an MBA in international business. I hope to start a business overseas in order to improve the living conditions of those less fortunate than me and to give them the good news about Jesus. I would love to read this book in order to jumpstart my business career and help me avoid some common business mistakes.

  • Kylepierpont

    I would love to have a copy of this book. I am a Youth Pastor with a heart for leading the Church. Not just a local church but the church as a people. I would love to have Dave’s thoughts on leadership in my hands! I love your blog and the daily emails!

    I’m in the middle of reading Entreleadership right now, and I too would highly recommend it to anyone. It’s a great mix of Dave’s folksy style, great stories, and rock-solid business advice.

  • Lmarshall

    As a leader and “closet” entreprenuer I need coaching. I listen to guys like you and Ramsey and wish I had you on speed dial. This book sounds like just the encouragement and motivation I need.

  • Julie S.

    Great post, Mike. I would benefit form reading Dave’s new book because as a newly appointed church elder, I have been assigned to the Staff Relations Committee in a church that has 40+ employees. I have not read Dave’s previous works and feel this would be a great place to begin.

  • @IdeaCay

    Dave has been a humble servant, teaching people about seizing their own financial freedom, one baby-step at a time. He cares about your future, and has become a breakthrough leader of future leaders, and can help you find your way in a distracted world.

    I saw this video the other day and thought this was going to be a great new book. I’m even more intrigued after reading your review of it. I work in a ministry organization that causes us on the administrative team to think like leaders and also like entrepreneurs. I can only imagine this book would be a huge help and would love to snag a copy from you!

    Thanks so much for providing great resources or at least the information about great resources at your blog!

  • Ronnie

    Good morning, my name is Ronnie. I am very interested in what Dave’s new book is about. I am 32 years old and I am in the process of returning to school to get my degree in business management and information systems. I have tried unsuccessfully to start a business in this field for several years. I am currently employee’d in a dead end job. When I finish my degree and I am planning on approaching the self employment field again as a consultant. Dave’s books on leadership, along with material from Andy Stanley and Criag Grochel are what we all as Christians should use to approach any business. Thanks for the opportunity to receive a copy of this new book.

  • Swershing

    I have run two companies and am in the middle of my second start-up.  The biggest lesson I have taken from these experiences is how much I DON’T know.  Michael, you have pointed me to some wonderful resources to help me do things better already.  I look forward to the benefit of Dave’s wisdom through this book!

  • http://toppup.com Russ Pond

    I can’t begin to express how much I appreciate Dave’s ministry and financial wisdom. Because of his financial freedom principals, my wife and I have been completely out of debt since 2004. Since then, both my wife and I have launched our own businesses, each one birthed from our passions. In short, we love what we do everyday! 

    I’m very excited about Dave’s new book, EntreLeadership. From Michael’s description above, it sounds like it’s packed full of business and leadership wisdom that we can apply to our businesses. I look forward to reading it!

  • Pspengler2

    I have been a follower of good leadership principle for a long time.
    I try to place Godly teaching into my daily work. When I teach on marriage or how life should be in your home, I often time work in Godly leadership items.
    This book would help add to my ability to help other gain there potential and move forward in there life.

    What I like about Dave is his ability to distill advice into manageable chunks.  His five basic principles of money management are an example.  I’m interested to see how he does this with leadership.

  • Michael

    This week I’m attending the Global Leadership Summit and I’m not much of a leader. I’m sure I’ll be asked what my leadership role is or in what way to I lead in my life. As I consider that question it occurs to me that we are all leaders in some capacity. I lead as a father – sometimes. I lead as an employee – sometimes. I lead as I serve in my church – sometimes. But I strongly sense that leadership is in my future – all the time. I don’t know what the future will bring but I’m certain leadership will play a major role and I want to remove the ‘sometimes’ and better understand what leadership really is. People like Dave Ramsey know what it is. I’ve been listening to him for several years and know you can’t separate the man from the leadership. His radio show is about financial peace and yet foundational to all he advises is leadership. He’s managed to lead in his career and his life in many capacities. And as much as he is a strong personality he has learned to lead as one who helps other and who serves. Even the title suggests leadership as he finds a balance between two words he found inadequate in communicating his message. I look forward to seeing how he strikes that balance and how I can find such a balance in my own life as well.
    Thank you.

    I would undoubtably benefit from Dave’s new book, EntreLeadership. 3 years ago Dave’s teachings saved me from financial ruin, inspired me to start my own personal development business, and to write my first book, Graduated and Clueless. I am in the process now of starting my second business in health and wellness that will be based on an Internet radio show. I could surely use as much advice as possible to build a strong foundation in an area Dave knows so much about while simultaneously spreading knowledge that I believe everyone needs to hear. 

    Thanks for all the great blog posts Michael! I have been a fan of your work since I discovered your blog after changing jobs two years ago. I actually work across the street from Thomas Nelson at Anthem Career College. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/bvalca Bledi Valca

    Hi, I have read both the “Financial Peace University – Revisited” and “The Total Money Makeover”. I like Dave’s humor and the way he goes to the core of things. Having built his way out of dept and a large successful organization to help others live dept free, I would expect Dave to have some advise on staff management, working on purposes, etc.

  • Sue

    I have attended Dave Ramsey’s classes 3 times, (Slow learner or just wanting to make sure I got it). The truth is I loved the small group discussions and the encouragement from others as I heard their success stories. Being a single mom of 6 I needed that extra support of real people sitting next to me,  the accountability each week, and the helpful advice on making a dollar stretch.

     The first time I took it I was attending night school and balancing the budget was a dream. After finishing school I was able to quite my other job and get a career job. Two years ago I lost my job and at 60 I have been going from part-time job, temp job, and substitute teaching unable to get back in my field. 

    For years I have been encouraged to write and speak and have done some on the side. I keep saying once I get a REAL job I will get at it. Discouraged  and now my savings is gone and I am starting all over again. I am ready to take the plunge and start a business on the side as I continue to work where ever I can.

    Michael, you have helped me clear through the fear and anxiety to see what my dream truly is and now with the help of Dave’s book I hope to attain it. It is time I step up and go for it.

    When I clicked on the Twitter link, it only partially filled out the Twitter line for me.  (i.e., it didn’t provide all the information it normally does.)  I don’t know if the problem is on my end or yours, but thought you might want to check it out.

      Thanks, Karl. I fixed it. I thought I would be clever and turn the title into a hashtag (i.e., #EntreLeadership). Evidently, the program deleted everything following the pound sign! Oh well. Live and learn.
      It should be working now. Thanks for reporting this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/garrenkelly Garren Gaz Kelly

    The reason why Dave Ramsey’s book is so important to me is not because I want it, but more of a need due to the fact that I am 23 years old who has been in the financial planning industry for just under two years now, and in my role it is so important to incorporate integrity, respect and correct planning heading into the future in my own regard and for the clients sake.  I truly believe that no business can run effectively without courageous Christian principles such as being humble and giving in the same sentence.  Dave Ramsey’s books will be a new book for my desk at work as I will always try retain something from his wisdom as I read it daily.  Nothing better that the University of hard-knocks to help us out!!  Thanks once again Michael Hyatt for the blessings

  • Salena Lee

    I have heard many wonderful reviews from fellow bloggers and have been interested to learn more about what he offers.

    Dave Ramsey’s financial principles have changed the way my wife and I live. We’d love to read “EntreLeadership”, especially since I’ve been contemplating starting a small business myself. Thanks for the chance. And can’t wait to hear you speak at the ACFW Conference next Sept in Dallas! 

  • Blaforce

    I really need a copy of this book. I am just begiining (in my retirement) a new ministry called, “Declare His Glory Among The Nations”. It is an evangelistic ministry that allows me to proclaim the Gospel around the world. Frankly, I may be a good speaker, but I’m a lousy administrator. I can’t afford the kind of staff I worked with for forty years in the church. This is me and Jesus! (Can you relate??) I need the kind of help that Dave offers in this book and I need your help, too!! Thanks, Bob

  • Andy Jackson

    Thanks for sharing this insight, Michael!  Like you, I am a huge fan of Seth Godin and find his writing both thought-provoking and entertaining… However, Dave Ramsey is by nature a teacher of the tangible.  I know that this book is full of practical wisdom that have immediate take-aways for the Entrepeneur-Leader.  Can’t wait to dig in.

    I Actually found Dave Ramsey at the beginning of this year. It is because of Dave Ramsey I found many awesome people to follow to learn how to be successful in managing finances, relationships and of course leadership. 

    As I followed Dave Ramsey on Twitter I was able to find other awesome leaders like Michael Hyatt , Dan Cathay, Chris LoCurto and many many others. I now am learning from the masters of leadership.

    I want a free copy of this book for unselfish reasons, because I actually already bought it and read it on Kindle. I want to gift this book to the owner of my company, where I am a Project Manager. My reasoning is that after he reads it, He will want other leaders in this company to read it. Yes, our owner is an EntreLeader, he just doesn’t realize it, as well as myself being an EntreLeader.

    I will pass on the blessing of this book if I receive it Michael!

    I’ve got a business that I started in January 2010 after I got laid off.   I never expected I’d be starting a business at this stage of my life and the weight of responsibility for employee’s salaries has been tough but good.  It’s been an exciting ride and I’d very much like to get the wisdom and insights from Mr. Ramsey’s book.  I’ll put the insights to work quickly in this business.

    • Kwblock

      Michael, I have just begun reading your blog and am soaking it up eagerly. In fact, I am soaking up everything I can on the topics of leadership, marketing, and yes, even entrpreneurship. I have just published my first book and am eager to see God use it in whatever amazing ways He has in mind. My job is to do the footwork here on earth, and that is why I am educating myself about all these topics. I know I have leadership qualities, but they are relatively nascent still, as I am just emerging from the role of the stay at home mom of six children. I have seen the lives of some of those children revolutionized by Dave Ramsey and my husband and I attended FPU about a year ago.
      I would love a copy of Dave’ s new book. Thanks for reviewing it and offering it.

  • Bill Dodge

    It turns out that while I am already a leader in a great organization, that I want the legacy of that leadership to outlast me for many years after I am gone and forgotten.  That does not happen automatically.  I want to use Dave’s book to help me create a lasting legacy of service to the homeless and needy.  I want to leave them a place to go and get help that will be there regardless of what is going on around us in society.  Only a strong organization can stand the test of time, and only leadership led by God’s spirit will make sure it stays on course.  I think Dave gets that and I think this book will help me with the nuts and bolts to help install that culture in my organization. 

  • http://twitter.com/jimmyproulx jimmyproulx

    I believe that this book would be a huge benefit to me and my staff right now. I am a new church planter and based on your review, Dave’s book has a lot more in it that other leadership books do not. I would love to have a copy so that I can start being an EntreLeader.

  • http://www.crossfocusedmedia.com Shaun Tabatt

    In my daytime job, I’m a manager and this past year I launched a consulting business that helps publishers and authors with social media.  Dave’s new book would be a huge blessing to me as I continue to grow in both of these roles.

    Michael – thank you for the consistant insight and offers that you provide.
    Lord willing, I will be retiring from the Navy within the next 12 months after 20 years of service. As I prepare for my second career, I am confident EntreLeadership will provide some great feedback on how I can better prepare for this transition.

  • Johnson Rn

    I would like to take our team through this book.

  • Raquel Cohen

    I just love Dave Ramsey! Would love this book because I think Dave gives great, sound advice and does it because he loves people and wants them to succeed! The book covers a lot of what I am learning currently about owning a business and making it last.

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.vandergalien Michael Van Der Galien

    Hi Michael,

    I’d love to win a copy of this book. I’m a 27-year old Dutch problogger and Internet entrepreneur. It’s of vital importance for my professional success to become a great _leader_; it’s something I’m working on day in, day out. 

    After reading your review, there’s no doubt in my mind about the question whether this will help me become a better leader and, as a result, a better entrepreneur and managing editor. I’m confident that this can help me take my (professional) life to the next level.

  • Jimfitz2

    Dave Ramsey using a straight forward, common sense and Biblical approach to so many issues.  My guess is that EntreLeadership will use the same type of formula, making it a great lesson for any and all leaders.  I look forward to reading it, learning from it, and sharing the knowledge and wisdom it contains.

  • Ronz

    I am helping leaders in a practical way to act a an Entrapreneur  and to be ahead of their competitors in a fast changing world!

  • http://thehjellejar.com David Alan Hjelle

    While I’m not an entrepreneur, exactly, I work at a small enough company that everyone is a bit of an entrepreneur: we all daily make decisions that affect the whole company to some degree or another. I deeply want to make decisions that glorify Christ, even as I write software. I can already see how something as simple as “Love your neighbor [customer/competitor] as yourself.” can dramatically change the way I think about various business decisions, and I’d love to learn more Biblical principles for making these daily decisions.

  • http://www.wmarkthompson.com W. Mark Thompson

    So excited about this opportunity to get Dave’s new book. He’s been in my family’s life for about a decade now. We’ve gone through Financial Peace and paid off $61,000+ of debt in just over 24 months. His radio show has been a wealth of financial information for us. We’ve called in to his show and screamed the debt-free mantra!

    When I saw he was coming out with a leadership book for entrepreneurs, I literally fist-pumped from excitement. I would like this book because I am praying that the guidance and lessons in Entreleadership can do for me and my family (and business now) what Financial Peace & Total Money Makeover has done for us.

    Can’t wait to dive into this book. Thanks for setting up this opportunity to win Entreleadership, Michael. What a blessing!


  • http://www.blindroosterseasonings.com Brian Richardson

    I have to admit, I have never read any Dave Ramsey books. Based on your description of the book, I am looking forward to many of the topics. I am an owner in a loss prevention services company that has operations in the US and India. The section on communications will be incredibly helpful. As a matter of fact, I can’t find a single topic that would not be interesting to apply. Besides my day job, I have a hobby BBQ website and help manage our church website. I’m curious to see how this book’s topics will overlap all three areas of job/hobby/church. Thank you for bringing this book to my attention.

  • http://davidsantistevan.com David Santistevan

    I love Dave’s books. The Total Money Makeover has changed my family’s life. I have dreams of running my own business and I think this book would help prepare me for that and build on a solid foundation.

  • http://www.facebook.com/denniswells Dennis Wells

    Hey Michael:

    When I was in graduate school, I learned the most from professors who shared their real world experience, rather than just theory.  I am just starting my counseling practice (LPC) and forming a couple of books to publish.  This is just the guidance I could use to see both of these ventures develop into tools to assist others.  I respect Dave’s experience and have recommended his resources to others many times.

  • http://twitter.com/GraceHouse Sharon Poarch

    Love Dave’s simple approach to Godly financial management!  It just works!  Imagine that.  As an entrepreneur in small business and part of the core group in our first year of a new church plant, I can envision the potential impact of Dave’s new book on my little patch of the planet.  Thanks for the opportunity to get it free, Michael!

  • Bradley Adamson

    I will soon be taking over my family’s business. I wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to complete a business degree when I was a young man. My dad has taught me much about the business, but he is ‘old school’ to say the least. I hope to learn from this book the ends and outs of running a business and being an effective leader so I can prosper this forty year old company rather than running it into the ground.

  • Jeremysecrest

    I’m in the process of designing and creating a business and think this book would give some really practical and helpful insight into doing this in the best way possible – avoiding unnecessary pitfalls and moving forward where possible.

  • Steve Creech

    Leadership seems to be a hot topic today for so many reasons. This book comes from from an individual who writes from one who has served oin the trenches.  I serve as a pastor  and leading a church I think is more important than leading a business.  The reason is because what we do or don’t do can last for all of eternity.  I strive to grow myself as a leader by reading every day and strving to be a life-long learner.   Looking forward to reading this book. Thank You

  • S Radosevich

    I have read other great Dave Ramsey book sand expect this one to be no different.

    I am in the process of starting a new business. I can’t think of a better example of Christian leadership in the business world tha Dave Ramsey. Thanks for making this information available.

  • Archie

    Mike, I NEED one of Dave’s new books, because I NEED to read and put into action anything Dave recommends, and I don’t have Entreleadership yet! SO.. as you can see, owning all of Dave’s books, IS a need for me. Thx, -Archie

  • http://bloggingwithamy.com Amy Lynn Andrews

    Oh, I would love a copy of EntreLeadership! (We have been working through Dave’s Baby Steps since 2006 and have experienced amazing financial freedom through it. We highly recommend it. We’re definite Dave fans here!) 

    I’m excited about EntreLeadership because after meandering through life, doing the “right” things (getting good grades in K-12, going to college, getting a degree, going to grad school, etc.), I still felt like I never found anything that was a true “fit.” In the last 3 years, though, I have started and grown an online business which has become our family’s main source of income. As goofy as it sounds, in my first 33 years of life, not one time did I ever think of myself as an entrepreneur. Now I’m beginning to think otherwise…and I’m also grieving for the time I “lost” not having known I’d love this so much! I hope EntreLeadership will give me a jump start. 

    Thanks for the opportunity, Michael!

    Would love to get this book from you michael as always for the motivational posts you blog and also inspire us,i’m sure i will expand my knowledge from this book.

  • http://tarheel810.wordpress.com/ Brian Payne

    I have been listening to Dave for years and have heard him speak frequently about his EntrLeadership conferences so I was very excited to hear that he had this book coming out.  As a leader in my company I am always looking for ways to enhance my knowledge and performance and think this book would be a great tool toward that purpose.

  • http://twitter.com/ALifeSanctified Felecia Clarke

    As a leader employed in someone else’s business I’ve always worked hard and provided much blood, sweat and tears for the company.  Now I find I’m an entrepreneur and would love to be able to use Dave’s principles and wisdom as a guidebook for my new life!  Thanks for the opportunity!

  • http://twitter.com/revitup Roger Vest

    I would love a copy. This type of advice would be helpful as we strive to move our comfortable church in new directions

  • Rmls01

    I would use this book to become a better leader within my church. It’s my desire to be an example of leadership. Also, it would be very beneficial in my real estate business. I know times are hard right now but my God is bigger than a recession. I believe that with the right tools, i.e. EntreLeadership, I can take my business and my leadership skills within my church to another level.

    My name Earline means Noble Leader I’ve been told,  I have been leading others as I follow Jesus. I am about to embark on my lifelong dream of establishing a Retreat Centre, Farm and Transition House for women and children coming out of domestic violence situations. This vision is so much bigger than I am and from what I’ve read of this book it would be another blessing from God to enable me to walk with Him through this journey efficiently and effectively so that He could receive His glory.  I believe that it would provide me with more to teach others about business God’s way. Thank you for the opportunity to receive this book.

  • Mriekena

    I am so strongly wired for entrepreneurial ventures (as opposed to employee status), that I am looking forward to reading this book largely due to one particular thing said about Dave Ramsey, namely that his company is a “veritable army of entrepreneurs”. This intrigues and encourages me because so many leadership books seem to come from a point of view where human “resources” are simply human “cogs”; i.e. units with which to build one’s company.  I struggle with the belief that there are ANY human cogs at all, though I am keenly aware that we are all products of systems that wish us to become cog-like. I don’t want any organization of mine to be another such system.  So the idea of building an organization, while simultaneously assisting others to enter into their full potential gives me personally a lot of hope. Thanks for the tip!

  • http://twitter.com/jtblaylock Joe Blaylock

    I lived in Nashville for seven years and always enjoyed listening to the passion that Dave would show every day during his talk show. I have a few friends that work for Dave and speak about his leadership ability. I have not met a person who works for him that ultimately doesn’t enjoy working for his company. Is he tough? Yes. Does he expect a lot? Yes and why not? He is a leader on air and at his company, so I figure that I could learn a thing or two from this guy through his book.

  • http://www.brianhagman.com Brian Hagman

    I am a huge fan of Dave Ramsey and can’t wait to read this one.  I am an avid reader and student of personal & leadership development so this material will have to be added to my library.

  • Byron Underwood

    My wife, who ia a fervent Dave Ramsey listener and an insistantFPU follower, will have our family out of debt in June 2012. She homeschools our children working hard to provide a quality education. Lisa is constantly listening to Dan Miller learning how to start her own business. When I changed jobs, Lisa was not only supportive but extremely helpful using her knowledge gleaned from these two men. If there is anyone who will be appreciative of a book like this, Lisa will. She will realize the value of reading Dave Ramsey’s new book.

  • Jake

    I’m in my second year of Making a living as an independent singer-songwriter. It has been a Do-it-yourself approach from the beginning. I’m constantly balancing the creative and business sides. Maybe, juggling is a better word. That would put more emphasis on the simultaneous part. Annndddd…getting to the point. I’ve rubbed up against financial peace as much as someone can with out actually reading the book cover to cover. I’m in to Dave. I’m a fan. I’d love to read this book as a means to get a few NEXT STEPS figured out in business.

  • http://wesbleed.com Wes

    I consider Dave a new breed of faithpreneurs who run their lives and businesses by sound Biblical principles. This book appears to be the total package of how one can succeed and prosper while bolstering the Kingdom.

  • StrengtheningUS

    The way to change this country is to change us.  Entrepreneurs are the backbone of this nation and it is here where our economy will change.  Dave Ramsey has taught thousands of people to handle money God’s way.  Now I am excited to see what advice he has for the business community.

  • http://twitter.com/Juanbg Juan

    Great post Mike,
    I personally think responsibility starts we each one of us being financially accountable. This is a lesson I learned from my parents that did not have much money but also they did not have debt. Money is one of those topics that most people don’t talk about, even couples hardly speak, with my wife we do talk, we put plans short term, medium and long term, we make adjustments accordingly and then set it up and monitor. However this world is changing constantly, there is always something new to learn, I would love to read this book I am also fan of Dave’s material.

    Thanks for the Twitter alert about this this morning, Mr. Hyatt. As a side-note, if anyone is not currently following @mhyatt:disqus , Dave Ramsey, or John Maxwell on Twitter, you should. You receive valuable insights throughout the day.

    I’m a young entrepreneur working on rebuilding a small company, the Varsity Internship Program. Through my time so far with the company, I have been very grateful for the incredible opportunity to practice “the art of selling by serving,” and improving my communication and time management skills.

    Last summer, I was blessed to take on more of a mentor leadership role with the students. I loved it, but realize how much I also need to grow to help them even more. 

    This year, I am moving into the roles of a marketing director with the company. Currently, I am working with a video team to produce a new promo, a graphic design team for a new logo and other marketing materials, and consulting a few programmers for a new website. (Which will be a customized WordPress theme, by the way.) : ) 

    I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to glean entreleadership insights from Dave Ramsey’s new book to help me better serve my company and the students and customers we serve.

  • http://twitter.com/DaphneDelay Daphne Delay

    Like Dave Ramsey, I have learned everything through the school of hard knocks – which is why I (and most of America) can relate to his method of teaching. I am a speaker and writer, “Spreading the Good News of God’s Righteousness to this Generation.” My best teachers have been those like Dave Ramsey, and Michael Hyatt, who have graciously shared of themselves to teach others how to reach their dreams and fulfill their purposes. I am very excited to get Dave’s new book! I am at a place where my ministry is growing and it’s time to hire some help, but it’s a cautious (yet very necessary) step for me. I know this book will help me maneuver wisely as I continue onward!

  • David Southern

    Hello Michael, I have owned my company since 1993. I simply worked harder than anyone else for the first 10 years and had business success but suffered in my family relationships. I was forced to recognize my out of whack lifestyle. By God’s Provence, I have been given another chance with the most important relationships in my life. In the past five years, I have began following you, Dave Ramsey and others to do life intentionally. This book is on my wish list. I will be attending Catalyst in less than two weeks and look forward to seeing you and Dave. I am planning on purchasing EntreLeaderahip at Catalyst but would enjoy the copy you are offering even more. thank you for your review!


  • http://intentionalbygrace.com Leigh Ann

    I would love win a copy of Dave’s book because I think this description of an EntreLeader is exactly what my husband is. Not to mention, he’s incredibly passionate about the topic of leadership and business, and I thoroughly enjoy learning along with him. We’ve enjoyed Dave’s books in the past, and I am certain this book would be no different. We always enjoy Dave’s no nonsense teaching. :)

  • Kathynelson

    I enjoy reading Dav Ramseys books and my husband listens to him everyday andeven stood in line at the book store for a hr just to get his book signed. My husband would never stand in line for nothing but since he enjoys listening and getting some pointers about money issues he thought he was worth it. He tells me all the time what he has learned from Dave Rampsey.

  • Ron Snyder

    I have been in business for 20 years, 6 of which have been as a Christian.  I hope to gain a new perspective to continue to grow the business or decide if now is the time to step out and do something different.  The last couple of years have been difficult to keep the business moving forward.  In the future my hope is to lead a church, either a church plant or a small growing church.  With a church having many of the same issues as businesses I hope the book would provide some new insights into keeping the church running successfully as well!  Thanks, Dave is an awesome teacher and love listening to his radio show!

  • Mmodesti

    Dave Ramsey is a much needed voice in this day and age. He cuts through the clutter and the lies we tell ourselves about money. I expect this book will be the same – grounded in reality.

    I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I am a *reluctant* leader. This book will help me by providing some reality-grounded perspective.

  • Murphytm

    The most frequent command God gave to his people is “do not
    fear”.  Dave Ramsey is a magnificent vessel
    of this command.  He has an incredible gift
    to help people face their fears, and then he feeds us the love and direction
    needed to have the courage to live.  I
    would love to read his new book so that I can better serve those in my
    life.  To help my boys, my family,
    friends, and co-workers take one step closer to living life to the fullest.

  • Jeff Dimock

    Dave is so down-to-earth practical in his money management topics, that I expect his business building and leadership concepts will be more immediately practical than most on these topics.  As an entrepreneur trying to figure out how to get my business off the ground, I look forward to reading Dave’s insights from doing the same.

  • Tammy

    It would be wonderful to have Dave as a personal business coach. I appreciate the fact that he’s writing this book after 20 years of experience in business which means I can learn from his successes and failures and benefit from his vast experience. I’m in a leadership role for a non-profit and my husband is overseeing a small business we opened 4 years ago with the purpose of Business as Mission in an overseas country– I think Dave’s insight on living our dreams, having a vision/clear mission statement, making hard decisions, communicating, funding the future PLUS all his wise financial advice in the midst of it would be very helpful for both of us in our endeavors.

  • Kathy

    My husband and I really enjoy Dave Ramseys money programs that he talks bout on the radio and we are learning to pay off bills and also to save fo college for my daughter. My husband even bought a book and stood in line atthe bookstore for a hr to get it signed and tell him personaly that he was doing a good job and keep up wth the good work. My husband goes to a juvenille prison and teaches bible study. We have learned so much.

  • Rabrooks1

    I would love to find out what Dave is saying relative to the practical aspects of entrepreneurs and leadership. Due to job layoff two years ago, I have found myself having to blaze a new trail as the normal routes of earning a living were no longer open to me. I was 63 and found that corporations had no desire to hire me at my age and former salary.I would love to have a book to help me shorten the learning curve of blazing a new career in unknown territory. 

  • Christopher a

    It sounds like a good book for the small company I am a part of. Management could learn a lot from this book.

  • Drew_page

    I have read several of Dave Ramsey’s books and love to listen to his radio show.  He is full of practical everyday wisdom that the world certainly lacks in these times. 

  • http://www.siteorganic.com Brad Hill

    I’ve always wanted to attend Dave’s EntreLeadership seminars but couldn’t find the time, money or both. Now I’m both a leader in Financial Peace University, as well as a guest speaker at a local church’s program, “The Entrepreneur’s Journey”.  I’d actually love to get a copy of this book to give away to a young entrepreneur, especially someone who is perhaps getting past the point of “just starting” and is ready to hire their first employee, launch their first product, or expand into a new market.

    Thanks for making people aware of this!

    I am a pastor who oversees our Mission and Outreach ministries for our church. I have a Business Admin. degree and have experience owning my own business. There are so many principles that overlap between church, business, and non-profit. I am always looking for ways to learn how to apply these principles to our mission and outreach initiatives – whether it is teaching business principles at our sister church in Bulgaria or opening a store front office in our local community to assist our county residence in receiving help. I look forward to reading, learning, and applying this book to our ministry.

    Learning how to be a good biblical Leader in my business, yes in my industry from Dave Ramsey is the “shot in the arm” I need.  I am currently a Director in our Realtor Association, and I know I will lead better by using Dave’s principles. I’m almost debt free with his help and I know that he has good sound advice that works, because he uses it himself. 
    I own a small residential real estate brokerage, and I need the help and advice that Dave offers. My nitche is listing foreclosures for Asset Management companies and some of the Big Banks and God has helped to expand my contacts in this field recently.   
    My husband and I are buying a home (closing in 2 weeks) and moving my Mom & Dad in with us to help take care of them. Dad was re-diagnosed with Lymphoma & is going through Chemo, again. He’s 84 & Mom is 76. 
    I need Dave’s help to get my business running and growing so that will be one less stress.  I’m attending the simulcast this Friday at my church (FBC Georgetown, TX), and with the book to go back to as I’m working in my business, and knowing that God is in total control, how could I not succeed? Thanks for the opportunity.

    I am currently in the beginning stages of starting a fitness ministry that uses the funds spent by those who trying to lose weight, to help the poor learn more about fitness and nutrition.
    As a first time entrepeneur, I have no clye where to begin. Dave’s book would allow me to gain valuable knowledge from his mistakes, so I don’t make the same mistakes. Inevetibly, I will encounter failures along the way, and Dave’s book will also teach me how to handle those. Most importantlt Dave’s book will teach me how to sray grounded on a biblical foundation while running a business.

    My wife and I along with our four children have always lived paycheck to paycheck. I recently took a new job in sales as a Territory Business Manager with a large manufacturer. I believe this is our opportunity to see the kind of income that we have desired. What I need though are the tools and expertise that Dave offers to help me learn and achieve the business and leadership practices that will help me excell in this new career. I believe Dave’s new book EntreLeadership will be just what I need.

    Honestly, I am struggling and I need help.  I pastor a small church plant that is trying to grow in the midst of weeds.  I do part time work as a disc jockey as well as trying to enable a writing career.  I have used Financial Peace in the past, which was very helpful, but now I am in a new place and know I could benefit from Dave Ramsey’s new book.

  • Deb

    I would love a copy of this for my husband who works so hard to support our home schooling family, selling things he doesn’t want to sell because it pays for us to live. Every morning he gets up wishing he were on his own in business again, but every morning he gets in his car and does what works for us  now. I’d like to help give him renewed vision and remind him that he’s worth so much more.

  • http://www.needleforthechristianbubble.com Joe Lalonde

    I’m hoping to improve my goal setting skills, communication skills, and delegation skills.

    This book has me very excited as Dave has been a huge encouragement in my life. His desire to help people get out of and avoid debt is an inspiration. This book looks to be that inspiration but for leadership.

  • http://twitter.com/amythewright Amy Wright

    Maxwell said it best: “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” As an MBA student, I am up to my eyeballs in strategies, analyses and methods to business efficiency. However, I am well aware that none of it can be effective without quality leadership. I want to read Ramsey’s book because wisdom from one who has integrated good business practice with excellent leadership can be truly invaluable to me as I seek to apply what I learn in the classroom. Thank you!

  • Nathan Hickox

    I would love a copy of “Entreleadership” that I might use it to become a more effective leader in ministry. I am a freshly graduated, first-time youth pastor. I could really use any help and tips on leading that I can get. I would use the book to increase my impact and help my team grow. -Nate Hickox

    Thanks for the opportunity to own this book. I guess my reason is similar to everyone else’s. I lead a small struggling church, and I need help in developing my leadership capacity. I’ve listened to Dave for about 2 years now, have read both FPU and TMM, and am currently getting my finances in order (Yay Baby Steps!). I believe that this book has the ability to change my leadership style in such a way that I’m a better pastor.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • David

    I am currently thinking about starting a business with my brother-in-law and think that this book would benefit both of us to make sure that we get off on the right foot and that our relationship doesn’t suffer at the expense of business. I would like a copy for that reason and will pass it along as soon as I am done reading it.

  • Mitch

    I am a young preacher for a small church in Texas. We have no elder or deacons or anyone else in “official” leadership. Although I feel like we are on a good track, I believe that my leadership alone can only take us so far. I am trying to build a team, but continue to have plenty of questions of how to do this effectively. I appreciate this blog for helping in this venture. I would love to get a copy of Dave Ramsey’s book.
    Thank you for all you do to help out leaders and people in general.

    As an entrpreneur and leader, I continually search, and reflect.  It will be a year of owning a 501 c 3 Non-profit, in January, and even though I have been in the business world for twenty years, there is much to learn in the world of ministry business.  Dave Ramsey’s topics are exactly what I need.  As we are going through growing pains as a ministry, I am trying to head every challange head on. I am hoping Dave Ramsey’s book will bring me much insight.

    My husband and I both come from a family of entrepreneurs, some extremely successful.  We are also entrepreneurs and currently own and operate a benefit auction business.  We have recently been asked to contribute our knowledge and our time to a growing ministry.  I would love to read Dave’s book….plain and simple.  After all, knowledge is power.  Thank you for this opportunity and for your daily blog, it has certainly been inspirational.

  • Jeff G

    Getting ready to begin a new chapter of life at age 47 and need all the help I can get to avoid some of the hard knocks of leadership myself. I am enjoying Dave with my wife as we go through Financial Peace for the first time and look forward to his learning on leadership. 

  • Daniel Pineda

    As a leader in Church and a company I’ve seen how many people lead and follow directions, but they lacked the spirit of entrepreneurship. This book combines what a leader  and a person with an entrepreneurial mindset are to accomplish when working together, and Dave teaches how to do both with his biblical and common sense principles.  I love to read books that enhance personal growth and I am committed to do so. I would love to have this book in my hands and read and apply the principles this book teaches. In the last 10 years I’ve been developing leaders, but I want to combine the leadership and entrepreneurship in the people I lead.  I cant wait to get a copy of it, and THANK YOU Michael for this opportunity.

    Dave Ramsey has earned his place as a trusted voice in the world of financial management. As a not-for-profit manager, I’m anxious to see his common-sense approach to the financial world applied more globally to entrepreneurship and leadership. I’m certain that my organization could benefit from his perspective as portrayed in this new book.

  • http://twitter.com/redhedrev Mike Rowell

    I’m preparing to establish a faith community here in Indy, and would love the practical insights of Dave’s book! 

    Also: thanks Mike, for all you’re doing! You’re a great example for us.

  • Dbyrd

    I am a life long learner. I believe this book will advance my knowledge of the entire business process. Knowing it was written from a faith based perspective also helps. Integrity, character and trust are important to me. Thanks in advance

  • Yahya Bakkar

    I am 23 years old and just starting my speaking career. I am extremely interested in applying the principles that are being shared in EntreLeadership not only in my work life but my personal life as well. Leadership is an area that I believe can reshape our future. EntreLeadership sounds like it definitely has that capacity. My main intention with this book is to LIVE it and help others LIVE it as well. Thank you Michael.


  • Seth Edden

    Mr. Hyatt, Thanks for sharing your review of EntreLeadership! I was already planning on reading it and your review only makes me more excited to get my hands on a copy. I look forward to applying as many of the principles as possible to develop my influence as well as the way I go about my job and ministry. Thanks again for sharing!

  • http://www.about.me/christopherwparks Christopher W. Parks

    My wife and I have been following Dave for about the last 7 years. After going through the FPU class at church, then facilitating the class for several churches and other non-profits, my wife and I took the plunge to become financial coaches, coaching folks to handle money God’s way. Through learning God’s way through Dave, it truly changed our heart and spirit about money, stewardship, and generosity. EntreLeadership will help give me a framework for building our coaching ministry. It is our mission to teach folks the “why” and the “how” of dealing with money God’s way

  • http://www.CFinancialFreedom.com Dr. Jason Cabler

    Dave Ramsey is my hero.  I have patterned much of what I do after him.  He keeps me inspired daily while producing my Celebrating Financial Freedom blog and home study course.  When people ask me “How do I get out of debt?’ my first thought is “What would Dave do?’  

    Dave’s organization is consistently rated as the best place to work in Nashville for a reason, and I want to learn how it’s being done the right way, so I can succeed in an even bigger way.

  • Kevin Gullickson

    Thanks for offering a chance for a free copy. My wife and I were recently approved to begin the process of planting a church. At the same time, I am serving in a new role as Operations Manager of an e-book publishing company. At this point, I could use all the wisdom I could get to pull both of those off! And I can honestly say that you and Dave Ramsey have been two of the most influential people in my life.

    Thanks again,

    Hi, Michael.  For the last 10 years my business was a hobby – a side business comprised of one full-time mega client.  When the current economic climate impacted that client, I lost the contract, and in essence, my job.  I’ve had to suddenly rethink my business and rebuild it from the ground up.  It’s time for me to lead and to build something of lasting value.  I have benefited from Dave’s previous work, but this one in particular is exactly what I need at this exact moment in time.  Thanks for your consideration.

  • Www.Twitter.com/JennyLynnSEM

    I am very excited to get my hands on his new book. I’ve followed him for years and had many “wake up” moments thanks to his wisdom. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  • Corey Towe

    I feel like this book speaks right to where I am right now. My passion is to build leaders who actually lead. I’ve seen the impact bad leadership can have on non-profits and for profits and think this is the first and most important part of any organization. I’m currently working my “day job” but also working on a few startup companies. I want to do this right! I want to start by having a foundation of bringing in leaders and building a culture of building “entreleaders”. I pray for wisdom daily as I attempt this and would love to glean wisdom from Dave Ramsey, who’s been where I want to go. 

  • Roger

    I am going to a national viewing of Dave Ramsey talking about “EntreLeadership” this Friday. Look forward to hearing from Dave. R.I. Willroth @loveabsolute.

  • http://brettcohrs.com Brett

    There are three reasons I’d love to read this book:
    1. I’m a sales professional and am learning the importance of running not only my personal book of business as my own small business, but also the importance of growing my niche within my organization to it’s own small org within an org–leadership is vital.
    2. I’m in the unique position of working with many startups and any information that I have that I can pass on to them only makes my relationship with my clients more valuable and helpful to them.
    3. Whenever I read his stuff, I can almost hear him speaking the words off the page. It’s like a built in workout partner–I could use that with this type of info!

    Thanks for continually bringing new tools and resources to our attention!

  • http://www.twelvebasketsfull.com A’Dream Ash

    I am a fairly new subscriber, this is my first comment. I enjoy your daily emails and enjoyed creating my life plan (I am also a fairly newlywed and suggest your ebook to every engaged couple I meet). Both my husband and myself are small business owners and I expect Dave’s book to be similarly as effective in planning how to run our businesses and lead in a way that edifies our customers and our staff, as well as builds our community.  We both consider our work to be our ministry (he a fitness consultant, I a personal chef) and want to do our part to help end childhood obesity. I think Dave’s book would be beneficial in laying the groundwork.

  • http://twitter.com/SeekOutWisdom Joseph Iliff

    I want to learn about how Dave grew his business with the limited resources he had and without compromising that which meant most to him.  I know he started off just him and his wife on a card table in their living room.  And, everyone knows Dave doesn’t do debt.  So, he had to grow his business with what he had, the money his real estate deals brought in, a wife, and a house full of kids.  He had to sell his book out of the back of his car and speak before any audience that would have him.

    And, he didn’t compromise.  He could have moved to New York or Los Angeles and sold his radio show to a big broadcasting system.  But he didn’t want to relocate his family from his hometown of Nashville, and didn’t want to give up control of his radio show.

    It is a story of a guy who grew his business, without losing his family or selling out his larger purpose, to change lives.  That’s a story worth reading.

  • pastorglenn

    I would benefit greatly from Dave Ramsey’s newest book! As a pastor, business partner, and someone keenly interested in building a legacy of leadership with integrity and ingenuity, I am sure that Dave’s insights would be significant in my personal growth. In turn, I would pass those insights along to others in my sphere of influence. Congratulations, Dave, on another successful project!

  • Michelle Sarabia

    I am ready to learn on not how to be a leader but how I  can the best leader possible with the tools written in this book.

  • Lee Smith

    I’d love to have a copy of this book because mine is filled with highlighted sections and I can’t/won’t share it with anyone.  Dave Ramsey is more than a financial educator, he is an example.

    EntreLeadership represents Dave’s next level of influence on the schools of business and finance, and he’s going to make a big splash in the pond!

  • Tracy Suter

    I want a copy of Dave’s new book, Entreleadership, because Dave is a guy who walks the walk, not just talks the talk.  Dave has been there and done that.  Not everyone can be a radio host, but everyone can follow Dave’s advice in entrepreneurship and leadership.

  • JaimeB

    I would love this book as my husband has owned his own business and is looking to start his own, once again.   We started a non-profit coffee shop in South America and it would have been useful for us to have this book at that time.  We are missionaries looking to rejoin ministry in leadership stateside or overseas.  I feel we could learn a lot from reading this book.

  • Lbateman1

    Dave’s career speaks for itself. He knows how to lose and how to win. Love his no-nonsense approach.

  • Kenny

    You learn from the best, and Dave Ramsey is the best.  It would be beneficial reading for anyone, and I would very much like to read this book.

  • Tphogg

    I believe that that entrepreneurs are the secret to economic recovery and that the upcoming young adults are filled with entrepreneurs.Therefore, my wife and I are working feverishly to invest in this generation via coaching and leadership as a pastor. Looking forward to this resource! TIM

  • Edi Balian

    At first I couldn’t figure out what the name meant but appreciate the thought behind it.

    It makes sense to define what kind of leadership he is talking about.
    Since each type is different and by defining it such it gives it clarity and direction.

    It would interesting to read how he shares the role, development
    and sound biblical principles he uses to raise entreleaders.

    I have seen leaders who are entrepreneurial and cannot deny that
    I am interested to see how he was able to build such a team and be one himself.

  • Janenefaye

    I am a young leader and have been trying to read and surround myself with leaders who are wise and following biblical principles. I would love to read this book!!

  • Promobrain

    I have listened to Dave for years and have also participated in his programs.  Have I succeeded fully? No! But in trying to continue to build our current business as well as develop a new start-up I know that the only advice I truly trust is his advice.  I have anticipated this book for a long time and hope that I am a winner.  We want to leave a legacy for our family and build businesses that operate on proper Biblical and ethical standards, provide for others and be a blessing to others.  

  • D. Merricks

    I am in ministry, but I often feel like an entrepreneur. I think I could get a lot from Dave in that his advice and wisdom is always practical and realistic. 

  • Anonymous

    I would love a copy of the book. I am an entrepreneur and the big thing I would like to learn is when it is acceptable to take risks and when I should be cautious.  

  • Danielday

    My dad has really struggled in much more than just finances, as the owner/operator of several family businesses, especially over the last several years. As a company, we were not ready for the massive downturn in the economy, but now that the outlook for us is becoming more positive we are looking for wisdom to help us re-establish these businesses on the right foundation. Entre-Leadership would be a great tool to helping us get control of our company, and honor God and our employees through sound business practices. We would love a copy of Entre-Leadership!

  • Bill Seashols

    Should read a good book every week or two based on schedule, getting a solid 8 hours of sleep a day, and eating healthy.  I need good solid information and inspiration to put into my mind, heart and soul to make the best decisions possible every day.  Thanks for the opportunity to read Dave’s new book.

  • William Wilson

    I ventured into realm of enterprise, part-time, five years ago and found success. I’m interested in Dave’s book for two reasons. 1) I am now a full-time self-employed business owner. 2) I am eager to see how the skills of someone with the giftedness of Dave Ramsey can transfer to a regular schmo like me. I know he works hard, but I can’t resist idea that he has inb0rn personality and pizzazz that gives him a leg up. I am hoping the book will change my mind!

  • Laurapolk

    FINALLY! A book about owning a business that will tell it like it is. I’m a FPU graduate and know the value of Dave Ramsey’s well thought out plans. We’ve owned businesses in the past that struggled to make a go of it because of all the unforeseen things that we didn’t know to expect or plan for. Getting advice from anyone was nearly impossible because people seemed to think we were encroaching on their businesses by asking for advice. I would LOVE to get a copy of Dave’s new book as I branch out and start another small business in the next few months. Thanks for the opportunity, Michael!

  • Mike Collins

    Dave’s plans work.  I’ve seen them work in my own life and in the lives of many others through my involvement with Dave’s Financial Peace University.  Ever since I came across Dave Ramsey, I’ve been looking for more information about how he runs his businesses.  I’m still attending the School of Hard Knocks at my own company – it seems that I’ve survived undergrad and now I’m working my way through grad school.  I’m interested in this book because it can help me learn from a master about how to make my company more successful.  But I’m also interested in Dave’s new book because, one day, like Dave, I want to teach and inspire others who are working their way through the School of Hard Knocks.  Dave is a mentor on many levels for me, and I will be especially thankful for the lessons in EntreLeadership. 

  • Dean Deguara

    If you’ve ever listened to Dave Ramsey’s podcast when he is hosting his business school you would know why I want this book so bad! This book has to be loaded with practical wisdom that would not only benefit me but the people I rub shoulders with! Would be honored to read it and review it on my blog as I do all my books!

  • Maggie Mielke

    After spending 21 years in the military, a few of which I taught leadership skills to Officer Trainees, I am shifting gears.  The other side of me is extremely entreprenurial and I am opening up a small (but growing!) alterations and custom tailoring business next month.  I have used Dave’s books and advice personally and would like to translate his lessons along with my military background into the business launch of the year in Fort Atkinson, WI!  Dave’s new book has been on my list of “must haves” since I read the preview information months ago.  Start up budgets are tight right now however as I am building this business “debt free” – the Dave Ramsey way! I would so appreciate a free copy – thank you so much for your consideration.

  • http://twitter.com/lettner Michael Lettner

    I would love to read EntreLeadership. I am sure that soon I will get the book even if I don’t win. I have been a Dave Ramsey fan for about 4 years. With going through Financial Peace University it helped us get a handle on our money and get out of debt & stay out of debt. If we didn’t go through it, we wouldn’t have been able to move to OKC two years ago and handle the hit of losing 20% of our house value when we sold it. It has been a blessing to have been in a position to take a better job and grow greatly through my work and also friends at LifeChurch. I would love to win the book for I am about to turn 30 in a couple months and I think the advice in this book will help me avoid mistakes made by others and help be develop more into a leader that God wants. I am on the leadership team at my church for local missions and we are in the planning part about about to set the vision and cast it to the church to get them to serve so this would be great. Thanks for giving away the books!

  • http://www.ousleyresourcescenter.com Dianaousley

    Just started working on a non-profit foundation still in the works but feel this book could help me get better organized and possible gain more supporters toward my cause.  I have read that most non-profit do not receive a lot of funding because of the organizational factor.  My goal is to establish an organization to assist with resources for unemployed and underemployed individuals.  I am a administrative professional who along with her friends are looking to share some of the information we’ve gained in working for the people who actual do the hiring.  It is our hopes to help prepare individuals to return to the workforce.  However, it is our goal to document our process in setting up our organization to use as an example and this book would be a wonderful addition to our library resource.  DAO

    I have been wishing I could attend the simulcast this Friday that Dave is hosting around the country.  But I am a caregiver for my 78 yr old dad and my 10 month old granddaughter.  Now I have renewed hope that I could glean from the principles he will share, by finding them in his book!
    I could learn:
    – how to step up my online leadership by serving with my ebook on planning retreats.
    – how to better market my retreat ebook.
    – how to nurture the leaders in our women’s ministry to find ways to fund activities without raising the cost to individuals.
    – how to find creative ways to do fundraising for our Uganda Missions Team.
    – how to manage my dad’s finances and debt.
    – how to market my book on a life story of crisis and hope.
    – how to manage publishing contracts.
    – how to better utilize my blog for communicating.
    – how to be a functioning entrepreneuer who is responsible with finances and time management.
    Thank you!

  • Matthew J Daniel

    We already consider Dave our financial advisor…

    The time is soon coming for me to leave my comfy full-time position to start my own business consulting on learning and performance. I’m working now on positioning myself for the transition and I know the wisdom Dave offers in this area – I’m looking for practical principles I can continue to build on as I prepare for the future and I’m hoping to add this book to my library!

  • John T

    Love Dave. Want the book but ultimately want to lead well!!

  • Regina

    Flirted with the idea of entrepreneurship for a while – between excuses and dealing in a comfort zone of letting organizational noise take over – needed to know it was the “one.”     Since Dave Ramsey has helped me makeover my financial “relationship” – i know this book will help ignite my vision and help me commit already to doing business right while leading others with vision & value.   What a cool opportunity to change my life!  Thanks @michaelhyatt !

  • http://www.twitter.com/nowgen T Rumler

    I would like to learn how to manage the tension of wanting to be a dreaming, innovating, entrepreneur and the daily leadership maintenance and challenges that can fill my time. I would also like to soak up any of Dave’s wisdom to young leaders.

  • Yannick Post

    I teach business classes in High School and I use Dave’s concepts in two of my classes – “Personal Finance” and “Leading and Managing in the Global Economy”.  I love using Dave’s resources because he provides a very practical and useful approach to the concepts he teaches.  I work for a Christian school, and it is especially refreshing to be able to work with Dave Ramsey’s resources knowing that he himself in a Christian and uses Biblical references to reinforce his beliefs. 

  • BainterJr ?=^)

    As mentioned when I shared your G+ post, I have listened to Dave Ramsey for years and continue to work the financial steps before they were called “Baby Steps” (ok, originally I didn’t follow them all that well, but my family is now debt free except our house and have paid cash for our most recent car.)

    I would like the new book so I can grow as a leader. When TMMO-Live used to come to my town, I would show up before the trucks arrived and would watch them pull away, helping the staff throughout the entire day. It is a joy to temporarily work with such an amazing team.  The book will teach me how to take our current organization, mold and adapt what we currently do and become the same great staff that Dave has around him. 

  • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

    I am just expecting to grow myself by learning to motivate my team to take ownership and love their tasks rather than resigning to fate and grinning all the way. I hope that some of the takeaways will be the know-hows of handling a divergent team in a complex and challenging environment, and the secrets to efficient and effective management of resources.

  • http://twitter.com/gljones01 Greg Jones


    Whether you are the head of a major corporation, or a domestic engineer, to be effective, you must exhibit some form of leadership. The more effective you are relates to your ability to lead. Like John Maxwell, I believe this can, or in many instances, IS learned. It is my goal to someday lead a Christian non-profit that helps the poor. Dave Ramsey is a great teacher for those of us who desire to lead!!

  • Gordon

    My career go is to into children ministry.  The problem is every church needs children ministry especially medium to smaller churches. However, those churches cannot provide a salary income most of the time or if they do it is  part-time.  Therefore, to reach those churches I need to come up with income apart from ministry. I believe Dave’s book will help me on my entrepreneurship quest so eventually I can devote my more of my time sowing Gospel seeds into the lives of children. I will  taking both the principals of leadership not only to the market place but to church settings as well.

    I am not an entrepreneur, but I have many friends who are. My friends always come to me for advice, and I do my best to help them. I think reading this book (and being able to recommend it in the future) will be a valuable tool for me as a mentor and for my friends as entrepreneurs.

    As a small business owner, I often find myself wearing hip waders, in chest deep water.  You take steps to prepare yourself, but the depth of the water is unknown and I find myself facing issues that I have not been aware of, or prepared for.

    My goal in business is not to just be financially successful, but to teach and lead my employee’s so that they can one day take my place, or if God wills, start their own business.  I would appreciate a copy of this book to help me to that end, to be the leader that doesn’t just float, but leads and trains!

    I’ve appreciated reading your postings here and on Google+ and am challenged by many things you write. God Bless you in your ministry there!

    I think this book would be an incredible tool, not only for me, but for the leadership team that works with me. For a while I´d followed the material suggested by Michael, from apps and software, to books, interviews and conferences. All your suggestions have been wonderful. I’m sure this will be too. I hope to get my copy.

  • David Kalu

    As a student studying Leadership at Wilfrid Laurier University and very passionate about business, EntreLeadership is one of the resources that will equip me with what I need so I dont go off trying to reinvent the wheel. I watched Dave Ramsey at the Chik-fil-A leadercast and I froze after his presentation. I had never seen a business leader so passionate about the things of God and has used that passion as a sure foundation for his business. Leadership  from my understanding in a biblical perspective is about faithfulness and ability (2 Tim 2:2) and getting that “mentorship” from Dave’s book will increase the value in me. 

  • http://davidlarteyblog.wordpress.com David Lartey

    I think that I want the book because I am currently working on a project that I am expecting will require a great time and leadership skills and this I think is one book that will help me achieve this goal.

    EnrtreLeadership sounds like a good book to read. If you can take the time and learn from someone else’s mistakes then you do not have to go through all the trouble. I am a youth pastor  and I want to be a better leader and Dave would be a good guy to learn from 

  • http://DaddyLife.net Hank Osborne

    I am working a plan to exit my current employment to become a full-time entrepreneur. Dave Ramsey is largely responsible for where I am today. I am a frequent listener to his radio show and have read “The Total Money Makeover”. My wife and I share it as a gift to family and friends. A while back I followed his recommendation to read Dan Miller’s “48 Days to the Work You Love”. Between these Dave and Dan my life has changed forever.

    I have heard Dave talk about his EntreLeadership events. I plan to attend one at some point in the future. In the meantime I am very excited to see this book released. I expect this book will be a great reference to help me avoid some painful mistakes.

    Thanks for the “heads up” about this book.  I’ll be sure to check it out!  As a senior leader in municipal government I find we face the same issues as those in business.  I’m sure Dave’s wisdom could be put to good use where I work as well.

    I’ve read Dave’s first two books and am thrilled to say my life was tremendously impacted as a result.  We’re now living debt free except for our home.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13730721 Dave Jones

    I like Dave’s common sense approach to finances.  I look forward to reading the same approach to leadership.  I believe part of “common sense” is that you do not gain knowledge for the sake of knowledge.  You learn to act and pass it on. This is what I would hope to do after reading Dave’s new book.  Glean the knowledge, act on it, and pass it on in my sphere of influence.  Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Rkponder

    Total Money Makeover and FPU was for me and my family a top 3 major life change and continues to be so today. I look forward to reading his new book, and if by chance I get it free…. well that’s even better.

    I am looking forward to hearing what Dave has to say. As a new Sr. Minister who has transistioned out of Student Minstry there are a lot of leadership lessons that I have been able to transfer. However, I am always interested in those who have proven themselves and what they can teach me.

    I’ve been blessed by Dave Ramsey’s other books and have a lot to learn about leadership.

    As a bi-vocational church planter (debt-free), I am always looking for effective strategies that help improve my skill set as a leader in the business world, as well as ministry. EntreLeadership sound like a refreshing and interesting take on the subject—one I am very excited about reading.

  • Csmanagement

    I’m interested in the book not only for the business that I manage, but for my own personal life as well.  I’m on the leadership team at my local church and I would take Dave’s advice on a spiritual level as well as we lead and train the church.  I’m always interested in Dave’s approach of walking the line between business and faith which can typically between a tough and confusing matter to some people. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/JobCoachHQ Doug Andrews

    First, I read Financial Peace and found it very enlightening.  So much is common sense yet Dave explanations seem to motivate me even more.
    Second, I manage a business and am beginning to start my own business, this book would be perfect for what I need.
    I am excited to use this book as a resource for both businesses.

    I am a 24 year old entrepreneur who is eagerly seeking to learn from experienced leaders. Dave Ramsey is a man I highly respect and I would love to read his new book. I strongly believe in mentorship and learning at the feet of great leaders, and I hope that reading his book will help advance my understanding and practice of leadership.

  • Joe Santamarina

    Dave Ramsey’s book the Total Money Makeover has absolutely transformed our life. As broke college  students my wife and I were recommended his book and had already racked up close to $100,ooo in total debt between school loans, car loans, and credit cards. After following Dave’s plan our financial situation has completely turned around as has our relationship. Having a plan for your finances changes so much of the relationship dynamic. As young business owners we are inspired by Dave’s writing and if his new book EntreLeadership has one-tenth the impact that the Total Money Makeover had on us, it is well worth the read. Very much looking forward to diving into this new book.

  • Lance harris

    As of August 31 I am now an entrepreneur!  Not by my own choosing of course.  But rather through answer to many months . . . I guess, in reality, years . . . of prayer.  Our God knew I’d never release the death-grip on my security (aka: salary) so he took it away.  I have prayed for courage to seek a more significant life by losing my place in the corporate line, rejecting the false security of the paycheck  and stepping into community, trusting fully in Him.  As Phillips Brooks said, “When you discover you’ve been leading only half a life, the other half is going to haunt you until you develop it. You were made by God and for God. Until you understand that, your life won’t make sense.”   Dave Ramsey has lead he way for personal journeys just like this for many years and is always a refreshing voice of encouragement.  I’d really enjoy sharing in more of his wisdom through this book.  (. . . not to mention the budget is a little tight right now . . . ) Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Lee George

    I love what Dave Ramsey has to say about small business owners and entrepreneurs being the backbone of this country and we have to lead well. I am helping start a nonprofit business incubator called The Work Space (www.thework-space.org) and I would love to apply the knowledge in Ramsey’s book to the small buisnesses and entrepreneurs in Minnesota.


    I recently left a position in public education to start an educational consulting firm specializing in school finance. Education has always been a place where leadership was discussed and theories of effectiveness were presented. There have also been conversations and work around the entrepreneurial aspects of education for both the professional and students. However, the two have never been combined in any reasonable conversation or work that can be distilled into the professional development of staff or the learning of students. Addressing this condition is a goal of my work; and I have been looking for helpful resources in this area. 

    The real life experiences and lessons learned of Mr. Ramsey will be invaluable in working with school staff and could be used to develop a program for students. This book would enable me to be of assistance to school personnel and ultimately students in an effort to faciliate a more effective educational systems in school districts.

    I find myself hitting obstacles everywhere I turn in staring my small business. I am very interested in hearing practical, real advice from experiences in how Dave and the team got the organization to where it is today. It looks like nothing to this caliber has ever been published! Thank you

    I would love to read this book because I am a bi-vocational pastor trying to make ends meet in a rural environment. It is not easy balancing ministry, work, and a young family to the glory of God. Any help I can get my hands on would be great. Thanks for the consideration!

    I work for a Baptist college that trains leaders for full-time ministry, as well as developing websites and graphic materials for missionaries, churches, and other ministries. I believe this book will help me develop my own leadership so I can more effectively influence those around me.

    As a small business owner myself, I know firsthand how Dave Ramsey can change a business… and a marriage! We’ve operated the business debt free since the beginning and have been personally debt free for over a year. This book would benefit not only us, but our clients too. If we can become better we can provide better products and services. This book will be one of my must reads. 

  • Jason

    I have always kept up with Dave Ramsey and would love a look into his leadership style. I definitely going to purchase this book but would love a free copy.

  • Keith Green

    I’m very excited about Dave’s new book, EntreLeadership. In his previous works, Dave skillfully unpacks eternal biblical truths that when practiced guarantees true prosperity and successful living.  I’m sure this book is a must-read, so I look forward to reading it!

  • Caleb

    As a new staff member of a growing church in Wentzville, MO, I’m anxious to see how and why God wants us to grow in our community.  This church body has seen great growth over the last 5 years, but is currently in more of a plateau…We want to see God lead us to the next level in growth and know that there are very specific methods and strategies that we need to put in place to get back on the trail following His leadership.  Part of growing Christ’s Kingdom in our culture is knowing the economy, business trends, and being able to speak the heart language of those working in our community.  Being able to come along side them and pray, minister and show them a great example of Biblical leadership.  Having gone through Dave’s FPU course, I know the leadership principles that Dave speaks/leads from and I feel like this book could be a great resource as we seek to get in the middle of our community and serve with God’s purpose!

  • Paulvhopp

    I love all things Dave Ramsey.  I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Entreleadership for months.    I have been helped tremendously by Dave’s first two books and look forward to the musings of his third, sure to be best seller.  I would love a free copy, but am sure to buy a copy either way.   Michael, your blog has turned into my reading list.  I’m nearly finished with Marcus Buckingham’s book Stand Out, which was also great. 

  • http://daredreamermag.com Ron Dawson

    We’ve been one of Dave’s fans since going through his FPU about six years ago. I used to listen to his show frequently (until it was moved to pat midnite in my area. That was a bummer). We’re looking forward to reading his new book.

  • Steve Schenewerk

    As a pastor and community leader (involved in city, county, and state initiatives) I am looking for help in developing others into leadership roles. Our church just hired an associate pastor and part of my task is to help he and his wife develop into the kind of Christian leaders our congregation, community , and denomination can rely on for the next forty years. HAving read Dave’s “The Total Money Make-Over” and having heard numerous folks change their lives because of his advice, this resource will be a trusted resource for years to come.

  • http://twitter.com/andybondurant Andy Bondurant

    Common sense. It’s funny that we need a book to read what we probably already know. But we do. We need a book about what we should already know.

    I actually have the book, and I’m a few chapters in. It’s a lot like listening to Dave on the radio, but it’s all about business and leadership.

    Great stuff so far!

  • Duane Nisly

    I follow Dave Ramsey on twitter, have been watching his #elbook posts and therefore I have been expecting this book for months! I love the practical teachings I perceive he has brought to the table in the book and look forward to learning more about his business and leadership principles!

  • Christopher Shawn Shaw

    I was interested in what Dave’s new book has to say upon reading a summary of it.  I’ve been curious to know how it can help my small business, G.R.A.T.S. Productions (Gotta Rap About This Stuff).  Thank you for doing this.  God bless you.

    Hey Mr. Hyatt, I am in Seminary right now and I am planning on planting a church in Miami, Florida when I am finished with my degree.

    I currently lead a parts distribution center (PDC) for a Fortune 200 Company.  The PDC employs approx 100 people.  In addition, I am pursuing a new real estate LLC with a couple of business associates.   This venture is new for us, but one in which we feel each of the principals will contribute unique strengths.  We also intend for the entity to focus on “others first”, and give a portion of any proceeds to address needs in our community.I have been a follower of Dave Ramsey for a year or so, and have just recently gone through his Financial Peace University.  I feel this book can provide me with the wisdom I need, both as a leader of an existing concern, and as a partner in a new venture.  Dave has experienced an incredible amount of knowledge over the years, and I would look forward to learning from him, so I can help change and impact the lives of those around me.Thank you very much for this opportunity !

  • Steve Berry

    This book by Dave Ramsey intrigues me for several reasons:

    1. I am student of leadership and am constantly looking for means to apply effective leadership skills in my business, with my family, and with non-profit and community service responsibilities.2. I am forming a new private equity investment business and would appreciate any tips on successes and pitfalls in launching your own company – particularly as it relates to managing cash flow. 

    3. I have read Dave Ramsey’s The Money Answer Book and have downloaded several of his podcasts. I relate to his no-nonsense approach to financial management and find his advice to be very practical and applicable to everyday life.

  • Kylejohnson20

    As a young leader, I am doing everything I can and reading everything I can to make myself better.  To learn and to grow.  This book will be a welcome addition to my library to help me achieve my goals.

    Thanks Michael for featuring it!

    I would really like to get a copy of this book for my Dad.  He is a big supporter of Dave Ramsey and has been “in the trenches” lately with his business.  If I win a copy of this book, it will be a gift for him and I will pray that God will use it, in some way, in his life.

  • Nate Champion

    Hi Michael, I would like a copy of Dave’s new book because there is a lot I could learn from his wisdom. I am a small business owner and I would like to learn more of Dave’s time tested strategies and tactics in order to further develop my leadership skills, run my business more effectively, and help me better serve those around me. Dave’s financial peace class and his other books have completely turned around our family finances and got us on the right track. I’m sure his new book EntreLeadership could do the same for my business! Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Aaron Lage

    I am 24 years old and earlier this summer discovered your blog through my pastor – I have been reading it daily ever since. I would like to receive the book on EntreLeadership because this summer I joined a team that networks with pastors and ministry leaders around the world to support and encourage them. The need is great at this hour.

    I realize I am not necessarily starting my own business, but I am aspiring to be a leader to leaders and with all the nuances this ministry involves and the creative edge I will need I feel it is entrepreneurial in nature as well. Many pastors will benefit from the financial wisdom I gain and share… Thank you for your consideration.

    I want to change my mindset that has always thought I don’t have the ability to create my own and work for myself. I am a fan of Dave Ramsey because he is honest, he is a believer, and his goal is to empower and free others from financial debt and create financial liberty. This book would help me as I read and love to learn from others who are successful.

  • Dave

    Having owned multiple businesses and run divisions and regions for larger companies, I have been fairly successful, however I have also had my failures and I think there must have been some things out there that I certainly didn’t know. I am a fan of Dave and I am always trying to learning because the minute you stop growing, you are dieing! I want to grow and learn the things I don’t know from Dave and continue on my journey to financial freedom and and being an entrepreneurial leader!

  • Dan1john2 6

    As a Pastor I find it helpful to be up to speed on topics such as this.  I have many small- business owners in my congregation and am always looking for great resources to pass on to them.  We also began Financial Peace University at our church on Sept. 18.  There is a lot of excitment and Dave is well respected here.  I know that this latest book will be a great benefit for many, many people!  This book could also give me great insight for the many leadership positions I hold.

    I think understanding Entreleadership will make me a better employee. And set the foundation for the day I can quit my “job” (web analytics) and commit to my passion (crocheting) for profit full time. 

  • Aurora

    I’ve been a marketing communications consultant for over 15 years and realize that there is much I need to learn about managing my business better.  I’m also in the process of building a ministry that will serve believers beyond the walls of my local church.  I have moments when I’m “frozen” by what I don’t know how to do on both fronts.  Dave Ramsey’s clear and direct advice I’m sure can help with loosening me up so I can move forward.  Hearing from him as the coach you describe in your post would be great so I’d love to get a copy of the book so I can start receiving his counsel.  

  • Chris Clayton

    I love reading about leadership! I can’t wait to apply these principles to the ministry God has given me. Thanks for offering this!!

  • Chris

    As a huge fan of Dave, his insights are second to none!  My wife and I took his class when we were $50k in debt (grad school, cars, and credit cards).   Since we have become debt free,  we are free of that burden and work with all our close friends/family on going the same.  At our old church we facilited the FPU class twice, and was such a joy.  I am now an HR Exec and following the same prinicials in the buz as in our personal lives is the only way to go.  Our employees benefit too, as we are a growing company, in 2 different states, with unique population of staff.  I want to learn/use/share the info from EL into our work family, and hopefully into their personal families.  Thank you…

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.holzmann Matthew Holzmann

    I’d like a copy of Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership for two reasons.  First, I think that my wife’s fledgling life mentoring & therapy business could benefit (www.empowermentexperience.com).  Second, after reading Dave’s “Financial Peace”, taking FPU, and drastically changing the way we live on the way to “living like no one else”, I’d like to continue growing through Dave’s guidance, so that I can leave my stable J.O.B. and launch a veteran owned/operated urban, Organic, aquaponic & hydroponic farming company to put our nation’s veterans back to work.  Can’t wait to read the book!

  • Jake C.

    After using Daves principles in my personal finances, I have no doubt his business practices will guide my infant small business the right direction. I cannot wait to read and learn from his mistakes, and successes.

  • Brandon Smithwick

    I’ve been raised that you learn from your elders and past mistakes. How can a 20 year old write a book about how to run a business? They are just starting out. They don’t have the real life examples to deomonstrate and relate to the right audience. For me I would read a book by a young author but may not entirely relate. With Dave’s book I feel its something every leader in this country should read, including our president. It isn’t that often a business owner writes something about their experiences and shares it with the world. I think this will be one of Dave Ramsey’s books yet!

  • http://decker.com/blog/ BertDecker

    Wisdom, that’s why I want to read Dave’s book. For that’s what he has and that’s what is so necessary in the business world today. The wisdom to accomplish, to work smart, and to achieve with integrity.
    Dave Ramsey is amazing. In his radio show he always cuts to the chase in his comments and advice to people. He is helpful yet blunt in his advice, yet always shows grace. He comes from a values base of faith in Jesus, and it permeates all he says and does.
    He is brilliant in personal finance and handling money, and he is brilliant in business. It is leaders like Dave Ramsey that will help us put the entrepreneurial drive back into the American economy.
    I can’t wait to read his book.

    I’m a small business owner, but really fell into the opportunity by happenstance and never really felt like I knew what I was doing (and the bottom line shows it!). My hope for this book is that it would help me develop a more intentional path to growing my business and, eventually, adding employees.

  • Melanie

    A copy of Entreleadership would be a valuable asset to me, someone who is not only working towards debt freedom, but also highly interested in beginning a small business. I am currently working as a physical therapist at a nearby hospital; however, my dream is to open my own clinic, one that focuses on the patient and not necessarily the money. I would like to learn how to be a great leader to those I hire and run a successful business. This book will allow me to start being a leader prior to owning my own company.

    I’ve greatly benefited from Dave’s financial seminars and would love to read his advice on managing your own business. I am a young entrepreneur, having just started my copyediting business this year, and need all the financial and business advice I can get! Reading such advice from a Christian perspective is also terrific because I can trust that source much more than I can a liberal souce.

  • Brandon Becker

    In ministry, I am an EntreLeader. I have to pioneer some new ground and also lead those who are following while pioneering some of their own new ground. John Maxwell just blogged today that the highest leadership accomplishment is developing other leaders. This is true in every context and will leave a legacy but getting to and maintaining this level of leadership requires a continually listening/learning position in life. Dave Ramsey is one of the best to listen and learn from.

    Maybe not everything in this book applies to the church, but I still believe it will be tremendously helpful for me as a youth pastor.  In addition, I’ve recently started a young leaders breakfast with some small business leaders in my community who are asking the question being laid out in this book and I think this could be a great topic of discussion for our breakfast meetings.

    I am near the end of my business career and have also learned a lot from the ‘school of hard knocks’. I want to pass this book on to the young man who is preparing to take over the business-  as a source of encouragement and guidance for him so he can start off on the right path.

    I have recently started my own small business and as a Dave follower I want to start my business the right way.  Thus, my interest in getting a free copy of his book.  I have been successful in starting off debt-free.  It took about 6 months longer than expected but worth the wait.  Thanks!


  • Megan

    My husband and I are attending Dave’s Financial Peace University and are finally getting our personal finances on the track where they should be.  I’m about two months away from my graduation from law school, and, like so many of my peers, I don’t have a job lined up.  If I can’t find a job in the worst legal economy in recent memory, I will be opening up my own firm.  I was a political science major and didn’t have the good sense to take any business classes.  I will need all the help I can get to succeed as a solo practitioner, and I trust Dave Ramsey more than anyone else.  Right now his book doesn’t fit in our revamped budget, so winning a copy from your contest would mean that I will have a chance to read it far sooner than I otherwise would be able to.

    Thank you for hosting this contest, and I see there are many, many worthy comments here.  If any of the winners aren’t familiar with Dave, I hope they come to appreciate his advice as much as my husband and I do.

  • Jdotson5150

    Getting ready to go back into full time ministry after many years in the business world, I am often shocked and saddened how little business sense and or training those in ministry posses.  Dave’s book offers wonderful Bionically based leadership principles that will help me be a better shepherd.

    I have taken Financial Peace University, and I recognize the practical wisdom that Dave applies to his passion for financial freedom. Also, I have recently taken on a significant leadership role in my church, and I want to apply Dave’s leadership axioms to have the maximum impact on my organization. I trust Dave’s opinion and personal experience, and I love all the examples he has been giving of EntreLeaders around the country. I want to lead for the benefit of others, and in turn, and become want to be one of those examples for others to learn from.

  • Kyle Tillman

    I have been driven by the entrepreneurial spirit as far back as grade school (I remember getting in trouble by the teach the year I got a toy gumball machine for my birthday because I was selling gum to my classmates).  I have been a professional software developer for the last 15 years and I’m at the point in my career where it’s time for me to move out on my own.

    This book is in my Amazon shopping cart and will be purchased soon (if not blessed with a free copy from Michael).   God has set my plans on hold for the time being as He is teaching me that He is God and I am Kyle, not the other way around.  Once I’ve got that straight, if becoming an entrepreneur is still in God’s plan for my life I will be looking to Dave’s book for practical and helpful advise.

  • http://wkevingilbert.me/ Kevin Gilbert

    I’ve been looking forward to this book since I heard about it. I’ve been running my own business with a partner for about five years and it’s been a constant struggle. So much so, in fact, that I’ve got to go back into the world of being an employee. I’m ok, with that, but I really would like to take a read of Dave’s book and apply as much of his wisdom as I can as I start with a new employer in a new position next week. My entrepreneurial spirit was a plus to my new employer as they have some ideas and visions for new initiatives and they felt I would be a good fit. I want to learn as much as I can from Dave’s successes and failures so that I can make better decisions and truly serve my new employer well as a valuable resource and leader.

  • Russell

    I would love to have a copy of this book.  I am getting ready to go into private practice as a marriage and family therapist.  For me, the two biggest hindrance is distraction (focusing on less important things) and fear (generally of failure, but also anything that might embarrass me).  My career has basically been avoiding anything of which I might be afraid.  When I was reading your review saw that Dave Ramsey would be your personal business coach, I thought that is exactly what I need- one who would encourage and challenge me not to sit back and hope that scary things don’t happen, but to meet those things head on and deal with the consequences.
    Thanks for reading and I really enjoy your blog.

    My husband and I always thought we were a great match, with our entrepreneurial-mindedness.  We each had our own home-based businesses early in our marriage, and then we opened a coffee shop together.  Since then, life has brought many changes.  Recently, I became unemployed, after helping a young doctor get started with his own business.  Now, I’m enjoying blogging and searching for my next step.  My husband and I both still wonder what our God-dreams are.  I’m suspecting a midlife crisis thing going on here.  Dan Miller, at the endorsement of Dave Ramsey, is a resource we’re currently using.  Feeling as though entrepreneurship is no longer for us, Dave Ramsey’s book could be a useful tool for us as we search for the truth (or not) in that feeling!

    I graduated from college with the knowledge of how to earn money. No one taught me how to manage money, how NOT to be stupid financially, how to live within my means, and how to disregard the Jones’ spending habits because the Jones are BROKE.  I needed a personal financial advisor, and that’s what I found in Dave Ramsey.  I’ve left my corporate job and I’m currently building my business plan in order to make money while following my passion; Dave’s business advice is what I need now. He’s credible and straight-shooting. I would be so grateful to be given a copy of this book. Thanks for doing this give-away!

    We want to learn how to market ourselves wisely and without looking like a sleaze-bag/slime-ball!  My husband often enters customers homes and has access to their sensitive computer information.  He needs to brand himself as a trustworthy person of integrity – not a fly-by-night computer repair man.   We started this business with no debt, just like Dave said you could.  It’s been doing well, but not really thriving.  We need something to give us that special spark and we don’t have any wiggle room to waste on a bad idea!

    I am just starting up my own business and I am realizing that it takes a mental toughness like nothing I’ve ever done in my life! It’s challenging in so many ways, and to be honest, there are days when I think that working for someone else would be so much easier. The truth is, it would be so much easier, but I know that it wouldn’t be nearly as rewarding and fulfilling, and I wouldn’t be living my dream if I did.  As I read through the different topics covered in the book I thought, “I definitely need this book!” Absolutely every area you listed that Dave Ramsey covers in his book is exactly what I need to be learning about and implementing. I would love my own copy and I would put it to good use. I can’t wait to read it and to share the goodies with my friends, family, and my team!

    As an entrepreneur and an aspiring mentor/teacher of entrepreneurs I believe that there is much that I could lead from a successful business owner like Dave Ramsey.  He is balanced in his approach to business combining successful financial management with the risk necessary to grow and succeed in an ever changing business environment.  I believe that there are very few entrepreneurs better equipped to help me excel in my business and inspire me to teach the next generations of small business owners to exceed all expectations.  

  • Mariana

    I think I can learn a lot more than I can imagine from Dave’s book. I have never read any of his books but for the last few months, I have been running across his name and hearing about his books. I guess the universe is trying to tell me something. I am a fairly new business owner (a few months short of 2 yrs) and though I’ve come a long way, I have even farther to go. I more than often feel that I need a business coach, someone to encourage me if I am chasing the right goals, or should focus my energy in a different way. I NEED help with time management and organization, and definitely need to learn to let go and delegate certain tasks so that I can be more successful and focus on what can grow my business. I want to be a leader in my business. I am eager to have the tools to take action, not just read theory after theory of how in a perfect world, I would make every correct decision for my business! Thanks for this opportunity!! 

  • Kenny Ruhland

    I Am in the process of starting a new profession as a realtor, and to have Dave Ramsey as a job cocah would be an excellent way to get my new career off to a good start. It would also be a good tool to use to continue encouraging my children to do there best, and stay positive.

  • Tanya

    My husband and I started Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover
    book as a New Year’s resolution for 2011. It’s been changing our lifestyle and
    the way we handle money ever since! As a young leader in church and in the
    business realm, I look forward to learning valuable principles from Dave once
    again. Thanks for providing this opportunity to receive a copy of his book!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1466200307 Jessica K. Sullivan

    I was so excited when I saw that Dave was publishing a book about business leadership. I respect his wisdom, and look forward to reading his new book to learn from his extensive experience. It has always been a dream of mine to own my own business doing something I love, and therefore am passionate about. I expect Dave to show me better ways of doing business, and I am really interested in his wisdom about fiances, and practicing the art of selling by serving. I have thought specifically about how we can do that, and I can’t wait to read what Dave recommends. Thank you Mr. Hyatt for this chance to win a  free copy of Dave’s new book! Finances being so tight right now, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the chance to win a copy!

    I have a fairly young Photography business and would like to know more about running a business in general. I am a graduate of FPU and DEBT FREE!

  • Crystalbake

    I have been an avid DR follower for years now, and while our debt free plan has been in progress for six years, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I would love to get my hands on a free copy of his latest book to help keep up our encouragement!

    I left my job of 14 years in May to start my own practice. Little did I know how little I know. 

    I would gladly welcome any direction and guidance that Mr. Ramsey has to offer. 

    Oh, and you, too, Mr. Hyatt.

  • Julie Simcosky

    Our 25 year old son is on a quest to become a personal chef.  He has the passion and the skill.  He just needs some direction and instruction in “the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”  I think this book would give him the tools for success

  • Phil Stokes

    I would love to get a copy of this book because I took FPU through my church and have the total money makeover book. My wife and I are trying to work our way through the baby steps and I am also trying to start up my own small business and I feel this book would help me get a great start the RIGHT WAY, not taking out loans to start my business. I truly look forward to reading this book and learning from Dave’s endless wisdom on the subject!

  • http://twitter.com/iCinSi iCinSi

    As a follower of Dave for over 5 years, I know the power of his positive “can-do” attitude along with real life examples.  I am working on starting my own business and this book no doubt will be a powerful tool.  Its a book I am really looking forward to reading. 

  • http://thoughtsaboutnothing.com @kylereed

    I have been listening to the entre leadership podcast and have been getting some great wisdom from that and ready to dive in a bit deeper with the book. 

    Would love to continue to grow as a young leader

    I’m looking forward to this boom as I am starting a anew branch of a ministry that will become the face of Athletes in Action. we will through.

  • Keith Carson

    Dave has changed many people in my church through Financial Peace University. His timeless and practical advice on personal finances as well as his engaging and direct manner have lead hundreds to stop the insanity and change their financial futures. I am sure his new book has a similar style but directed at business leaders and oweners. I would love to have a copy of his new book and discover how I can be a part of changing the way we think and do business in my church along with personal finances.

  • Mlyoung08

    I am struggling to get my small business to grow. Although I don’t have any employees I know I still need to learn leadership skills in order to run my business effectively and make each one of my customers happy, repeat clients. Dave’s FPU ministry has helped me tremendously in my financial life. I expect this new book to do same in regards to by business.

  • Bryanbigger

    I will soon be entering into my first significant leadership position in which many, if not all of the major topics Dave covers will be relevant to what I am doing.  I do not have any significant experience with many of those things such as hiring and firing along with making hard decisions.

    This book could help me avoid many needless mistakes and spare a lot of the people I will be serving and leading.

  • David Williams

    I was just introduced to Dave Ramsey recently and have to say his writings have changed the way I look at and manage my personal finances.  Every once in a while I run into somebody who changes the way I think about a certain subject… I am very grateful for his positive impact on my life so far.  I am glad to read he has a book on leadership coming out.  I am considering starting a business related to a strong passion of mine but know it will not be successful if my heart is not in the right place and if I use the same methods which have gotten me only so far!

    Great review above, I’m looking forward to reading the book.  I’m very interested in one of the free copies!

  • Paul S.

    Following Dave on Twitter, I have been reading his tweets about the new book and I would love to read it. I am a young pastor always in need of wisdom from the trenches! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Toshana N. Sledge

    I am Toshana N. Sledge and I am a Lead Administrator of Sister’s In Christ (Women’s Fellowship): which is a virtual and social media ministry and we are looking to evolve into a real ministry. As we  expand as an international & non-profit organization to assist women globally I will need all the business prowess actually without getting an MBA from Wharton. The timing of the book and all it has to offer is providential considering without sound leadership, financial, and business principles one is surely to not achieve as well. There is no time like the present for me to be edified and grow in all things business minded. Certainly, Mr. Ramsey’s book will provide the nurturing and guidance during my progress as an effective Administrator and leader. Simply put I need this book in my life!  I appreciate the opportunity to even be considered!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=763523310 Julie Gumm

    Dave Ramsey changed our lives 9 years ago and set us on a course that led my husband and I to being COMPLETELY debt free (including paid off house) at ages 34 & 35. Our journey changed us in some many ways and ultimately, I feel, helped lead us to our adoption of two siblings from Ethiopia. “Total Money Makeover” is my #1 go to gift for weddings and I give copies away whenever I do an “Adopt Without Debt” workshop.

    While I don’t currently own my own business I know that the principles will help me become a better manager of my team and also better prepare my husband and I for whatever the future holds for us.

  • Rsejames

    I need to read this book to better understand, wholly embrace and champion my role as communications director/magazine editor for the small women’s missions organization that employs me. I truly believe that my role is to inspire all of our constituency to be ambassadors for the organization . . . but how do I get them to consistently buy in to that calling?

    I need to pass this book along to my entrepreneur husband: electronic musician/inventor/prayer missionary. God has called him to start a global ministry to musicians and artists. He needs to know what his next steps need to be. This book may be just the light he/we need right now.


  • Sue Gomez

    I am excited to read this book!  Dave Ramsey provided practical hands-on financial advice – I can’t wait to read his practical advice on leadership. I look forward to getting useful information that can help me avoid some mistakes that I am bound to make.

  • http://twitter.com/obihaive Joseph Sanchez

    I would be interested in what Dave has to say about hiring and firing employees. He says he does it with dignity but how? 
    Also, how does he maintain motivation in his organization and keep things from becoming stagnant? If the book answers these questions I’d love a copy. Thanks!

    Great points, here! I especially appreciate the fact that we learn through mistakes – ours or others’. This is a point that I try to share with my team – sharing what I’ve learned so that they don’t have to make the same mistakes (of course, they’ll always make new ones).

    The principles and points illustrated affect and impact all business leaders and any way that we can collaborate and share benefits all of us! I look forward to reading this book.

    My family has really benefited from Dave’s wisdom.  I used to be an associate pastor and had the privilege of leading a large group through Financial Peace Univ.  Lives were changed for the good including mine.

    Since that time we have started a small business that we are working at part-time and eventually want to work it full-time so that I can move from the corporate world and work from home.  We have a 5 and 8 year old that would love to see their dad more…praise God for that :)…

    Well, I know first hand how Dave’s wisdom can benefit and I would love to continue to learn from him.  Thank you for the opportunity to win such a valuable book.


  • http://twitter.com/africabound Michelle Smith

    I would love to have the book for my husband.  He has some really spectacular ideas and dreams, but with little direction and mentoring in his life, there is not much hope of seeing them come to fruition.  He needs some biblically-based, sound principles of leadership from someone who has “been there, done that”.  We are a family of 5 with two elementary school aged children and an infant and don’t have “breathing room” to venture out and learn by the school of hard knocks.  I hate to see him sit on his dreams though.

  • Anonymous

    Clearly for me the biggest learning would be about time management and making hard decisions. I have a tendency to put off high-importance tasks until the pressure is on, and that is not the best and most efficient use of my time. Likewise, I am a peacemaker, and so I fight to have the hard conversations. Would love to learn more!

  • David

    I am an owner in several businesses that employee just over 100 people.  We as owners continue to seek ways to provide opportunity for our employees, and it is getting increasingly difficult to provide that opportunity and maintain a profitable business in today’s economic environment.  Dave’s teaching is always insightful.  I think this book would provide me practical truths to guide me as a business owner and leader over these 100 employees.

  • http://www.michaelhsmith.com Michael H Smith

    In recent weeks I have had the opportunity to meet with several leaders from Dave’s team. Through each meeting I have been impressed with the person (which is a credit to the hiring process at Dave’s office) and with processes they are following in leading the areas of their team. I would love the opportunity to dig deeper into the insights of Dave through the reading of this new book.

  • rockyford58

    Who would not want to get a copy?!  Being new in management, and starting a new church in the near future, getting this kind of help will be a Godsend, in the right place, at the right time!

  • Shantha146

    Hi, thanks for the offer! I want a copy of this book because I have been thus far unsuccessful in leading people. Plus Dave Ramsey is the MAN =) I love his radio show & Financial Peace University!

  • http://www.facebook.com/carina.brunson Carina A. Wyant Brunson

    My husband and I are currently working on the Money Makeover and have about two years before we will be debt free. Another goal of ours is that in the next four years we want to open a hobby store. This would be a great book to learn from and how to be that successful leader in owning our own business, but also in our lives right now as managers at the company we currently work for. We all have some leadership qualities, it just learning the right avenues on how to use them and put them in good use. This would also help at church serving the young women and helping them become great leaders in society, at their schools, and in their future lives.

    I am starting a new business and would greatly appreciate the wisdom of others who have gone before me.  I am an avid reader and would love to read practical advice that I can use daily in the weeks, months, and years to come.

    My partner and I just started Greater Western Plumbing in Denver Colorado.  I have been a fan of Dave for quite some time and I already have this book!  I love it.  I want a copy for my partner.  We started the company with no debt, and I have tried to impart Dave’s wisdom in other aspects where I can, but sharing this book with my partner will do that for us!  A copy of this book would be priceless for our business! Thanks for the opportunity.

    My husband could really benefit from this book.  He works in the corporate world managing people and is constantly working his way up in his company.  Learning how to be more assertive and delegate appropriately would be very relevant for the things he does on a daily basis.  His ultimate goal is to own his own business.  This would be such a great resource for him.

    Just this very week, I am working with a friend on a new business venture.  I can think of NO ONE that I would rather get advice from than Dave Ramsey!  THANK YOU for making this possibility available!

  • CraigS

    Dave Ramsey was a key instrument in turning our family around, and also me as an individual. My financial mismanagement and secrecy almost ruined us financially and maritally, but the grace of God and principles by Dave Ramsey we learned in Financial Peace University got us back on track AND working together toward common goals. Now debt free and giving sacrificially, we are excited to embark on an exciting new career opportunity…the right way. I am excited about finding the same help in Dave’s leadership principles I found in his personal financial counsel. I would gladly pay for the book, but free always works better!

    Hi Michael,

  • http://twitter.com/DLGMedia Jorge DLG

    After reading EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches  I think I’ll be able to take my business ideas and have the knowledge I need to make it happen. I’m currently worried how to get started in the process of starting the business no one is dong yet. There is a demand for it and I hope to solve that need. I’m seeking to find out what to do if I start on my own and have to expand immediately because of demand. Also, how can I make sure I have all my ducks in a row financially, admin, and promotion wise. I would hate to start this off halfway and have someone else take my idea and run with it making me have to close down. And most of all Have a Debt Free Business!Those are just a few of the thinks I look forward to learning from Dave’s new book and learning the solid in the trenches and Godly advise he shares.   Been a follower for over 7 years

  • Kyle Dowden

    A little over a decade ago, I started a home-based, Internet company that didn’t fare too well or last very long. I learned a lot from that experience on how difficult it is to start a business on your own. And, when I say “on your own,” I really mean it.

    I tried to do every aspect of that company without any outside help. I had done the operational side (what visitors see) in my full time job. I had assumed it would easily translate to trying it on my own. Big surprise! It didn’t. I failed to account for the real business side (selling, record keeping, general office stuff). Trying to do it by myself drained me, and I ultimately shut the operation down.

    You would think I would’ve learned my lesson, but about 3-4 years ago, I felt God leading me into church ministry. I really wanted to start a church, but because I was not familiar with the day-to-day operations, felt intimidated to really ask for help, and too poor to pay that help, I tried again to do it alone. Suffice it to say — strike two.

    Count it a lesson learned. I currently hold leadership roles in my Monday-Friday job, and as a volunteer at church. But, I still have that desire to be a church planter.

    I have enjoyed Dave’s teachings on finances, which have helped my wife and I get out of debt. Now, I look forward to reading his instruction on business leadership. I hope it provides some great insight into what I need to do going forward to pursue my dream. That is why I am requesting a copy of Dave’s new book.

    Thanks Michael.

    As a youth leader at a new church that is much larger than my former church, I have a much bigger team of people to serve with and manage.  I would love to read more about Dave’s principles as I work on how I am going to best lead the team I have working with me.

    Hi Michael,

    I’m currently the Communications Director at HERO, Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization in Fargo, ND. HERO collects and redistributes donated healthcare materials to benefit those in need. We have a retail store where people can receive items like crutches, wheelchairs, hospital beds, and bandaids. Anything not used locally is distributed to medical missions around the world.

    Although I do not deal directly with the finances of the organization, there are only three full time staff. I assist with donor communications and keep track of donations. We are currently looking to create a package that a group or organization could buy to have a HERO in their community.

    This book will not only help me develop my business leadership skills with HERO, it will help with my personal finances. I am a college graduate of 2010 and have been living on my own. I do pretty well with my finances, but working at a not-for-profit, my income isn’t crazy high. I’m looking forward to learning how to better use what I have and continue to save for the future.

    Thank you for the opportunity to be in the running for a book about finance filled with years of experience and wisdom.


  • Mike Schill

    I’d love to get a cop of Dave’s new book I’m trying to start my business and after going through his finical peace course I believe with his finical “guidance” I can do it. No with the new book I think after 3 years of doing odd jobs and hunting for a real job I can use his leadership to help with me new business.

  • Jon Ray

    Dave Ramsey is the reason why my family is no longer in debt.  This was more critical than I realized it would be as I was laid off twice over the past year.  Due to the influence of leaders like Dave Ramsey and Michael Hyatt, I am preparing to launch my own Independent Manufactures Rep. business this month.  I would love to have this book as I am confident it would be a source of great wisdom and coaching in this new venture.  Thanks for the opportunity.

    He loves this type of thing and as the Executive Pastor at our church he handles this sort of stuff at church and at our home. I have no doubt that he would LOVE this book and be blessed by it…as well as share the insights he would learn with those in our congregation as well.

    I have struggle professionally and personally lately. I have a chronic illness and am the sole support for my husband and two daughters. I know that some day soon I will be forced to re-imagine myself and my place in the workforce. When that times comes I want to thrive, not just survive. I think a book like “EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches” is the kind of book that can help me turn that day in the future into something to look forward to.

    I am a 40 something, single mom and I have business ambitions and dreams that I’ve never fulfilled. I am working on those dreams now and I believe God has brought the opportunity and the leadership into my life.  I respect Dave and believe his words are timely for me and where God has me right now.  I would greatly appreciate a copy of his book.

  • Efrain

    Dave Ramsey is at it again. This time he wants to save a nation. I need this book because I want to help a group of young people start a company. This will give us a great start. I love the way Dave writes and speaks he is a voice that gives hope to those who financially see no hope! Inner City ministry is about helping the whole being not just the Spirit being and that is what Dave Ramsey is about!

  • Laura Kramer

    The great thing about Dave Ramsey is anyone can read him. He is such a straight talker and makes big concepts into simple terms. It’s the only way I was able to survive his FPU classes. There are not many authors/personalities that my husband and I can both agree to enjoy together. We both enjoy Ramsey.

    For the last 8 years my husband and I have had a small side business. The economy hit us hard a few years ago and we are struggling along. One of the things I’ve noticed is we follow Dave Ramsey when it comes to our household, but not in our business. It has been a disconcerting revelation. It’s not right. Ever since I read Ramsey’s Money Makeover I’ve wondered how any small business owner could really follow the Ramsey Rules of spending within their means. Obviously Ramsey has done it–and has done it well. We are failing miserably and feel our integrity is also on the line. How can we lead well if we are not choosing wisdom in our business financial decisions?

    Our small business came as a surprise. We didn’t plan it. God pretty much dropped it in our laps. It is has been a challenge as a married couple to work well through communicating vision, goals, time management, organziation, marketing and financial decisions, etc. We’ve needed a handbook from someone who has walked the road. Maybe EntreLeader is that handbook.

    On the journey…

    As a seminary student in full time youth ministry, it is my hope that I will continue to grow in my leadership ability. Ultimately, I intend on being a senior pastor and church planter, and organizational and management skills are essential in facilitating such an endeavor. The difficult choices and decisions involved in leading church plants and beginning new ministries are innumerable, and creating marketing strategies that provide avenues to bring in the lost are essential. I wish to lead with confidence, not only in my God, but also in the gifts he has given me, and thus I require additional training to become the servant leader worth following. Thank you so much for considering me.

    I am a management consultant and entrepreneur and learned a long time ago to listen to people both smarter and more experienced than myself. I have done many things well and many things terribly, so I am always looking to learn from other people’s experience.  Dave Ramsey is a wonderful author and Financial Peace is still one of the best books on financial stewardship.  As a speaker and published author myself I also truly apprecaite good writers and teachers.

    I am also the director of the men’s ministry program at our church and am always looking for good books that might benefit our entrepreneurial members. Thank you.

    I work with people in crisis at a Christian non-for-profit (child sex trafficking, marriage support, domestic abuse, etc.). I am transitioning into a new position in the coming weeks and will be integrating new processes for working with clients and overseeing staff as well. This is new territory for me and I want to lead well. I am also discovering who Jesus says I am and what my calling is and think this book would help me give shape to my life vision.

  • Phil S.

    I’m getting ready to start a new business and grow our current business.  I’m not a leader by nature but have been blessed in how I’ve lead my employees so far. I don’t typically read leadership type books because of all the fad type stuff out there. This book sounds different and sounds like it could help me be a better business owner and leader.

    Well it showed that I had posted, but I don’t see it now so I am going to try this again.

    My husband and I are currently working on the Total Money Makeover and are getting closer and closer to that financial freedom and peace that lies ahead. With that we want to own a business and work for ourselves instead of someone else as well. This book would help us develop those qualities needed to run a successful business and also make us better as leaders in our current jobs. I would also use this to help me be a better leader in my church as a young women leader and help them because better leaders in their lives, school, and in their future lives. I would hope that it would not only help me, but by me developing better qualities, I could help someone else as well. I think the book is going to be another hit for him.

  • Shane S.

    I am going thru FPU right know and just love how Dave wrote the book in a manner that can be understood. I’M not in a financial crisis, but I truly believe that great things are coming my way and I want to be prepared. I am on a course of self development. I am on a path to starting a small business and a life of entrepreneurship. I like Dave’s Keep It Simple Stupid concepts. This is a must read. Hope to save a buck and win a copy!

  • RachelR1456

    My husband and I have been “fans” of Dave Ramsey for a long time now, I want to win a copy to give to my husband. He wants to start his own business and I would love for him to have this book.

  • Coach Jon

    I’d love to have a copy of this book as this would hit me right where I am on several fronts: as a leader on staff at a church; as a trained life coach looking to start my own coaching business; as a team leader; and as a repeat coordinator for Financial Peace University.  I’m a big fan of both Dave Ramsey and Michael Hyatt and have learned so much from both of you. Thanks for your consideration!

    • Coach Jon

      Got my book and am reading through it.  Great book!  Thanks, Michael!

  • Fr Ted Pisarchuk

    Dear Dn Michael: I am the Mission Director of the Diocese of
    the South, Orthodox Church in America and part of my work is to coach and
    mentor young priests in church planting and in turnaround ministries. Both are intensely
    EntreLeadership!  We are planting the
    first OCA Spanish Orthodox Church in Miami, FL and I met with a “priest
    candidate” (a graduating seminarian) this weekend.  At our “get to know” dinner I tried to
    explain integral relationship of entrepreneurship and leadership.  He has no experience and background in any of
    this.  I will study this book and pass it
    on to him as one of the many resources we will use in developing his “EntreLeadership-Church
    Plantings” skills.   Thank you! Fr Ted.  PS My Dn will see you speak here in
    Jacksonville in Oct.  I will miss it
    because I will be in Miami again! 

  • Afeltman

    I would love this new book as I am just starting a new business and want to make sure that I get things off to a great start!!! Not to mention that my wife and I have referred to Dave as our Uncle Dave ever since we went through the FPU class 5 years ago. Changed our life!

    I am  an appliance salesperson in Saskatoon, Sk, Canada. This book deals with many subjects that relate to my job as well as some dreams I have going forward. The area for me that is most crucial is time management, as each day for me looks totally different.
    Thank You

    As a recent college grad, I had plenty of leadership classes and projects. However, during my four years at college, I was never taught anything about entrepreneurship and leading in a small business setting. This made my first job out of school very difficult and eye-opening because I was exposed to both good and bad leadership characteristics from the CEO entrepreneur running the start-up where I was working. As a future business owner hopeful, I am very excited to read this book!

  • Katie Whitcomb

    I watched the EntreLeadership Live back in April and can’t wait to read the book. It’s such an amazing perspective for business owners.

  • Steve

    entrepreneurs ARE in fact leaders in their own right. Choosing not to follow but to venture out and create requires vision .  Iwould like to receive the book as part of my ever grow tool box in my building my own venture and as a tool when coaching others

  • http://twitter.com/Jermaine_Blair Jermaine Blair

    I need the shift of thought about business. It looks like Dave will provide the needed process and understanding that will allow that to take place

  • tjohn5

    Having been thru Financial
    Peace University,
    I have been challenged by Dave to handle money biblically.  I like to share good ideas.  So, on a trip from Minneapolis
    to Chicago for
    a wedding, three of my kids were held “captive” as we listened to the CD’s from
    FPU.  (By the way – they didn’t feel like
    captives.  They really enjoyed them.)


    I anticipate sharing EntreLeadership with others as well –
    be it the book it self or ideas, examples and concepts from it.  Encouraging and pointing others the right
    direction is important at any level of leadership and I think this book can do
    just that.

  • Aaron

    Question: What do you think you can learn from Dave in this book? I’m sure there is lots that that I can learn from Dave’s book. As an instructor of Financial Peace University  for my church I’m very familiar with Dave and his strengths, even if its not new information I’m certain his motivational character will help “steel you up” to get it done. I look forward to reading it.

  • http://twitter.com/stevehackney1 Steve Hackney

    I have listened to Dave’s radio show for some time now, and my wife and I have just started the Financial Peace University class.  I am a student of leadership, a growing leader, and an aspiring writer.  This book intersects many areas of my life that I am dealing with at the moment, and I would appreciate learning from Dave’s experience and perspective on leadership.  Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Pkcidstudio

    I have a lot of desire to run my own business and I think that this book would be a great start.

  • Jon

    I am young pastor that has just finished taking the church through Financial Peace University.  My heart leaps with excitement when I hear the phrase “he has developed his leaders to become leaders of leaders.”  That is what I want to be!

    This past May, I began directing a ministry-based publishing company that was in a steady decline. Since then, I have spent my time injecting life by producing 8 new products.  Our team released those products just two-weeks ago and have received tremendous feedback.  However, I’m realizing there is so much more to running a successful company than just releasing a few new products.  I would love to rebuild and revitalize this company learning from Dave Ramsey as my personal coach through EntreLeadership.

  • Jmhardy98

    I have followed dave for a lot of years. He always has great advice! I can’t wait to read this book!
    My advice is to pick up a copy today


  • Don

    We have Entrepreneures in our church which are looking for direction in launching their own businesses. This will be an excellent resource for them.

  • Kent Sanders

    I would love to have a copy of EntreLeadership so that I can take away ideas for our college.  I direct a Worship Arts program at a small Christian College, and we do our best to practice and teach creativity, leadership and personal growth — some of the qualities I admire in Dave Ramsey. Although I am not a business leader per se, I am certain that much of the book would apply to any kind of leadership situation. I am inspired by how Dave grew his company from scratch, and would love to learn the principles we could apply to our educational context here, where we face many challenges.

  • Hiddenhillsfun

    I have been a business owner for 25 years. My 16 yr old son is starting his first and there is no one better to learn from than Dave

  • Anonymous

    I’ve been looking forward to this book for awhile since Dave has been tweeting about it for months. My husband and I went through Financial Peace University last fall and it was fantastic. I became an instant fan of Dave’s. I also happen to be a serial entrepreneur, but always looking for help in the areas of leadership and starting a business. I co-founded a capital equipment company in the environmental sector seven years ago which I still work part-time for, but it has since grown substantially. I also started a portrait photography business and recently have turned my blogging and social media consulting into a business. I really would love a copy of Dave’s book! 

  • http://www.fb.com/MovieMe Danielle West

    Years ago at Northpoint Community Church, I went up to Dave Ramsey and discussed our financial situation. Since their were multiple services and his message was so moving, I stayed for the next service to hear the message again. Ironically, I was used as a financial example of “what not to do.” I had always been a good example of making the right choices; when did I enter the University of Hard Knocks? My husband and I made some tough decisions and turned our financial world around and have stayed out of debt, with the exception of our house since then. I was able to resign a couple years ago to invest in our family. I’ve also started a small business. I believe in being coached in all arenas of life and love learning from you, Dave Ramsey, Andy Stanley, etc….thanks for considering my entry and for always raising the bar!

  • http://twitter.com/jonathanblaine Jonathan Blaine

    I was listening to Dave Ramsey quite often when living in Nashville a few years ago, prior to his “fame” days.  His financial advice is as sound today as it was then, and perhaps even more important. I would be interested in his thoughts on entrepreneurship, as that is how many displaced American workers will rediscover financial peace following the Great Contraction, rather than working for a corporation.

  • Anonymous

    I heard Dave (and you!) speak at Catalyst West this year and I so resonated with his comments about being “real” while still showing the love of Jesus in the workplace. I’m currently self-employed and my business is growing, so I’m trying to figure out how to move beyond a business that’s “just me” to onw in which I can employ others and extend my reach. I’ve realized that there is much more to leadership than just bossing people around or having a vision, and I would love to read Dave’s thoughts on this. I’m striving to be a businesswoman with integrity and leadership, and I want to show the world way of living and being that is all about Him instead of being all about me. Thanks for this opportunity!

  • http://twitter.com/nobleplans NoblePlans

    I really want to dig into Dave’s new book, specifically regarding two key areas. I am a  nonprofit executive with 24-year’s of service, experiencing some roadblocks in my for profit start-up enterprise, due to the economy and some significant issues discovered in our business plan. I believe my partner and I have a few hard decisions to make and also need some critical direction related to funding and our current business debt. Based on the profile above, I am convinced EntreLeadership will prove to be a valuable resource for next steps with our company.

    When getting my MBA I took an entire semester on leadership.  I also attended a one day session of EntreLeadership.  I learned more in that one day then I did that entire semester plus the good portion of my MBA program.

    If this class could teach me so much in one day I c0uldn’t imagine what an entire book could accomplish!!!

    Thanks for giving these away.


  • Angela M. Haigler

    Dave Ramsey changed my life.  I have been credit-card free since 2006. It has not been an easy road, don’t get me wrong.  I am also on the way to becoming debt free.  So far I’ve eliminated about $15,000 worth of debt and am working on my student loan and a pesky eliminated credit card for a total of about  $40,000.  I have a small shovel, but I also have determination. It has also been a dream of mine to be a “mini-mogul” with several businesses. I’ve been afraid in a way,  shackled by other priorities.  I enjoyed your review and believe DR’s book can help catapult into making my side-businesses more lucrative. Pick me!

  • Kevin Respecki

    I’ve liked everything Dave has written and every book that Michael has ever recommended has been interesting to me. This book looks like it has some solid information for running a small business (and a large one also). I would love to get a copy of the book.

  • J White

    I’ve had a couple small relatively unsuccessful business ventures, but have mainly focused on my education as the primary investment in my future.  I recently finished a strategic leadership graduate degree, so I have plenty of undigested reading material to hold me over for some time. 

    I would like to request this book for my wife.  She just started a direct sales career in which she is very enthusiastic about.  Of course with my background, I want to have a positive influence in her business, but also don’t want her to think she can’t do it on her own and that I’m meddling. 

    The way you’ve described Dave Ramsey’s book makes me think that she could benefit from someone else’s wisdom, not just her “over supportive” husband…thanks Mike!  Keep them coming!

  • Jill Galliher

    Dave’s no nonsense approach to well, everything, is what I appreciate. If you want to know, he tells you plain and simple- no sugar coating. I have used his debt reduction principles for several years and have had great results. We’ve hosted FPU for 3 years in our home, and everyone there saw huge success.
     I am a Realtor, and in this economy I need to make sure I am doing and being what I need to be. I desire to be successful and I am willing to do what it takes. I believe Dave’s background in Real Estate taught him many things as well. I am excited to read this book knowing his heart is big, but his determination and drive has proven that he knows how to be a entreleader and that he is excellent at training others to do the same. I am hoping to learn specifics on what to do and how to do it. I look forward to seeing what happens in my life after implementing his game plan! Thanks so much!

  • J.R. Ramos

    After attending a satellite one-day seminar on this book, I felt like someone who finally reached some water after being in a desert without resources! The presentation was outstanding, and I look forward to reading the book in its entirety and sharing information with others who could benefit from Ramsey’s experience.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000171790058 Stephen Russ

    Dave’s leadership style is so important to be because he bases much of it on Biblical principles. I have the privilege to work as an assistant pastor at a church that is in the process of growing and needing more staff. As we grow, I want to put these solid leadership traits into practice so as to make working for our church a pleasant and fulfilling job. 

  • http://twitter.com/Maria_Keckler Maria Keckler

    For the last five years my husband and I have been following Dave Ramsey’s financial principles to take a responsible leap from the 9-5 job to launching our company and ministry.  And although sound preparations help make the leap easier, there is always some trepidation when it’s time to jump off the ledge (five days from today), specially in today’s economy.  I’ve been anticipating the release of Dave’s book, which I’m sure will be a valuable map for the journey ahead.  I can’t wait to get my copy!

  • Seedeesun

    I would love a copy of this book to give to my ex-husband who owes me lots of money and is self-employed. Maybe it would help him rev up his business so he can pay me back!

  • Anthony Duke

    I desire to start a family business. I am not the most intellegent person in my family but I believe that God can use whoever he wants to bring him Glory, I would like to teach families, churches, and other ministies how to utilize businesses to generate income in order to keep our churches open and functioning in their communities. These businesses would rebuild communities from the inside out and give the people involved a level of commitment not ever seen before. If we as ministers come into a poverty stricken area  and employ the poor, feed the poor and train them on starting their own businesses and investing  their money into Christian Schools, Christian rec centers, Adult education centers we can show the world, one family at a time, the love of Christ and not have to rely on “world systems” they will then truly know by our love for one another that we belong to Christ.

  • http://www.curtiscopeland.com curtiscopeland

    It is exciting to see Dave’s passion, skills and abilities now taking on the even greater arena of small business.  We do need more individuals skilled with vision enabled with solid business fundamentals as well as knowing how to leverage the talents of employees in our challenging economic times. 

    Dave has done it, and done it well. 

    As a small business owner, I can related to the frustrations of wearing too many hats and too many distractions.  Knowing Dave, he will bring the sound disciplines of strong business basics in easy to understand nuggets of wisdom that are practical.     

    A group from our organization is attending his “Entreleadership” this Friday in Fort Lauderdale.  We are excited to learn some of this insightful information straight from Dave as he teaches it live. 

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the book!  

  • Roman

     Dave Ramsey helped me manage my money in college so that I could graduate with practically no debt (I only have $1,000 loan, which I took out BEFORE reading Dave’s work). I am currently in business, and planning on starting my own business in the near future. I would love to learn business from Dave before venturing headlong into it. Dave helped me tremendously with my finances during college, and I believe he will help me tremendously with business advice as well. THAT is why I want to read this book.

  • Wayne Presnell

    My name is Wayne Presnell and I pastor a small church in the Nashville area.  I have heard Dave Ramsey speak in the past and like his down to earth, no nonsense style of wisdom.  One area that I need advice, wisdom and mentoring about is the area of leadership.  The reviews I’ve read lead me to believe that this book would be worth the investment of reading.  The fact that it is Biblically based is all the better.  Thanks for considering me.

  • http://www.ourpeacefulhome.com Becky @ Our Peaceful Home

    Yes please!  I would LOVE a copy of this book!  I am an entrepreneur and I know that I could learn lots for Dave Ramsey.  We follow his financial advice and this would be such a blessing to get a copy of this book!

  • Jim LaGrone

    I want to start a small business and I want to do it right. Dave’s personal finance principals have kept our family insulated from the so-called recession and I trust his business principles will do the same for the business.

  • http://twitter.com/DrewPeterson2 Drew Peterson

    As an aspiring leader within my own church, this book would provide extremely practical advice for myself from a proven leader. I foam at the mouth thinking about some of the things discussed within the books and how applicable that will be within my own ministry.

    As an aspiring church planter with a vision for a church, this book would provide for me some groundwork to making that vision a reality. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I listen to Dave’s show everyday and have been so excited about his new book.  I bought three copies for others two for my mentors who are excellent leaders and one for a dear friend of mine starting her own business but I didn’t buy one for me! I’m on a budget and had gift money in my envelopes but not a lot to spend on myself.  I hope to also read the material I have shared with my friends.  I’d like to own my own business soon and I believe that Dave’s leadership principles are inspiring and exactly what our leaders need to succeed in today’s market.  Thank you.

    As musch as I am a “manager” now I am also a teacher.  My staff needs the information in Entreleadership to be guiding principals for their conduct in my business as well as a compass for their life.

    I am a financial peace graduate.  I know how Dave’s information can have a huge impact on results.  This information will have a positive impact on my business.

    I’d like a copy of Dave Ramsey’s book because I want to take advantage of the advice he offers. I’m still fresh out of college, repaying my student loans, and in the process of joining the Marine Corps. I want to make sure that I am financially prepared for my future, and I would like to someday start my own business. Lessons learned about finance and leadership would really help me out in achieving my long term goals.

    I deserve a copy of this book because I have been married for 17 years, we have 16 year old twins and a 6 year old. We both work full time and I go to school part time. I am going to school to be a web developer and my goal is to be self employed in my home within 5 years from now. My husband has a portable sawmill and he shares my goal of being self-employed. We need this book to teach us how to start a business and how to thrive.

  • Agsparks

    I would love to have a copy of Dave’s new book for several reasons. First my husband and I are currently on our way to Financial Peace through Dave’s book Total Money Makeover. Also, my husband is a youth minister and who better to prepare to be leaders than the youth in our church. And last but not least, I am currently trying to start my own business through Thirty One Gifts. In a direct sells business you need to learn how to motivate your team and how to truly learn to build your own business.

  • Emily Howitz

    I am a senior at the University of Alabama; I will graduate in May of 2012 with a degree in Marketing. As I am getting ready to find a career, this book will be a very helpful tool in preparing me to be a leader in my chosen profession. I know that I will start out at the bottom, but as I grow in my job, and move up, this book will point me in the right direction of becoming a successful leader. Right now, I do not know what it is like to be in the “real” world; therefore, I need all the information I can get! Thank you for this opportunity to receive a Dave Ramsey book for free!

  • http://twitter.com/RickDReyer Rick Reyer

    Having benefited from the Total Money Make Over, I am very intrigued with Dave’s take on business and leadership.  In today’s business climate there seems to be a real lack of focus on valuing people and what they give to the organization.  It would seem Dave would have a lot to say about balancing the role of a servant leader while maintaining the bottom line.  I am in the midst of a two-year university leadership development program and like to be able to share some of his principals with those involved.

  • Jonathan Webb

    I would love to obtain a copy of this book for two reasons.  One, I want to soak up all the leadership knowledge I can, especially from individuals who have been through life’s tough moments like Dave.  Two, I desire to own my own business someday and want to put Dave’s time-tested principles to work.

    My wife and I are on Baby Step 2 of Dave’s plan and look forward to the day when we can shout, “we’re debt freeeeeeeeeeeeee!!”  

  • http://bernice770.wordpress.com Tracy Kulwicki

    My husband and I are working our way through Dave Ramsey’s baby steps (Total Money Makeover). We are currently working on generating additional income streams to speed through the baby steps faster. I believe that EntreLeadership will teach us many important lessons as we develop in our “traditional” careers as well as the side business we are using to grow our income level and achieve our true God-given potential. I think the parts of the book on selling by serving, communication, and focusing on the vision and goals of the business will really speak to us and take us to a new level.

  • Daniel

    I love Dave Ramsey’s simple philosophy on managing money. Can’t wait to read more about his philosophy on managing business.

  • Alethea

    My husband & I are huge Dave Ramsey fans.  Husband’s birthday is coming up & I would love to be able to give him this book!

  • Rariggs

    I am the director of an inner city missions organization. As a one man leadership team I’m responsible for vision,mission, personnel, budget,…you name it. I think Dave’s experience and expertise in these areas could be very helpful to a young, 30 year old, leader.

  • Kari Massoth

    I took business classes in college on how to get the most out of my design skills. I tried for two years to put them into place and those “practices” I was taught in school are not working. I’m not in the market  for a get rich quick scheme I would just love to learn from a man who has shown the world how he has put his business strategies into place and they work! 

    This book would help me get out of my “I’m not good enough” mindset at being a successful business owner. It will also strengthen me not only as the owner who will have a few employees under me but also in my ministry life on how to communicate more efficiently. 

  • John Seaton

    I serve the United States military, which is the greatest group of leaders (potential & future) which will influence our country, and hopefully the world. This great opportunity demands that I continually study leadership that I may excel in mentoring these exceptional men and women, of whom many are risking their lives for our freedoms. If you give me this book, I will digest it then invest into our soldiers ensuring it is multiplied many times with far reaching results.  Thank you.

  • FinancialDave

    I think this is a great idea – giving back to others.
    I think that I could benefit from this book for starting a new home based business next year.  I have heard good things about this course from others who have attended.

  • AndreaE

    Hi there!! I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE a copy of this book!! I’m a fellow member of the Financial Peace University family, I follow Dave on Twitter and I live faithfully by his teachings and principles.  I am a single mother of a beautiful and exceptionally intelligent 5yr old little boy.  It is my life’s quest to raise him to be a man after God’s own heart and to instill him with the wisdom and characteristics of someone who is a servant leader.  I am self-employed as well as an entrepreneur.  Building a business and being mom and dad to a young child can be very daunting.  It would mean so much to me to have a copy of Dave’s new book, so that I may build my business on a sound foundation and so that I can be a leader that builds others up and helps bring out the best in them.  I want to be a positive example for my son and my teammates and I feel that Dave’s book Entreleadership can help me do that.  Thanks so much!!

    Small business and entrepreneurs are the back bone of our economy. I work for a family-owned small business and this book is a must read for them.    I want their business to succeed because they are good people just trying to make a living and help some people along the way.  They have a great business model but if they had some of the skills outlined in this book, I think they could be so much better.  I would love to win one so I can give it to them.

    As a leader of a non-profit, I could learn to lead with the non-profit’s mission in mind, and with a better business sense to make the ministry resources go further.  Plus I’m going to see Dave’s EntreLeadership simulcast this week, so I would appreciate the book for free.

    Dave Ramey is cool like the underside of a pollow! I really enjoyed reading his “Total Money Makeover” and even though I’m only 25, reading it book helped avoid potential financial disaster for my wife and I. As a seminary student, I get a bunch of information about the Bible and ministry in general. However, the area of financial management of a small non-profit organization (aka “church) is one area that really doesn’t get much attention. EntreLeadership would provide a solid foundation for how to be a good steward of the rescores that I’m surrounded by.
    Seriously though, thanks for the opportunity to get a copy of the book! :)

    I have been working with a coach now for a couple of months to become a more effective communicator with a broader network of influence in New England. I have been preaching and teaching in churches and campus ministries about making disciples in a post-Christian context.

    So, I have been building a freelance business and am seeking opportunities to speak. Your site has been of great help and I believe this book is exactly what I need to take me to the next level. Thank you for the opportunity to receive this book!

  • Trent Boyd

    Dave has been a financial shepherd to myself and many others I know.  Thank you for this glimpse into his latest work.    He is a brother in Christ who has been uniquely gifted in the area of finance.  I look forward to gleaning from his approach to leading in the business realm.  As a pastor, I am certain that our churches are healthier spiritually as we honor the Lord with our finances.  I thank God for Dave’s foundation on Biblical principles.

  • K. Newell

    As middle aged man disenchanted by the bulk of corporate America and all that it entails, I am delighted to know that the deliberate, experiential, no-nonsense, practical business principles propagated by Dave Ramsey and lived by our grandparents is now in printed form.

    Having considered attending Dave’s week long Entreleadership seminar, but reluctant to due to cost, I can now read in detail those same principles.

    I am investigating starting a business, and this is a solid foundation I need.

  • http://twitter.com/edwardlife Edward Koczan

    Sounds like a great chance to read more life changing advice from Dave Ramsey.

    I attended the one day Entreleadership conference in TN in April and would love to see a full on explanation of the principles Dave teaches in his new book.   Leadership and Entrepreneurship go hand in hand.  My following Dave’s FPU advice is making it possible to start up my first business, as I just filed my LLC paperwork today.  I think this is a great timing & a good sign.  

    I’d love to review and learn while applying the lessons to my startup!

  • http://lawcents.blogspot.com/ Law Cents

    I would love a copy of EntreLeadership for a couple of reasons. First of all, his principles from  have helped my husband and I keep a budget, have an emergency fund and pay of debt.  We have done all of this despite the uncertainty in this economy.   Secondly, I would love to apply his advice as I transition into a new stage in my life.  Thanks so much for this opportunity.

    My husband is in the process of taking over his dad’s small business and I believe this book is exactly what he needs!  We have been on our own personal journey to financial freedom (paid off 20,000 dollars in 12 months!) and have a strong belief in how financial decisions should be made as a God-follower and hope to run a business with this same sense of integrity!

    I believe this book will be a life saver for me. I am a leader of a just started non profit and also a growing entrepreneur. I use the latter to help fund the former and I find it extremely challenging! I want to improve both on my leadership and entrepreneurship skills. Advice that comes from someone who has actually “been-there-done-that” would be most helpful.

    I have been a Dave Ramsey fan for quite some time.  I stumbled upon Total Money Makeover in a bookstore by accident several years ago.  It saved our financial world…and helped my marriage quite a bit!  I am particularly excited about his new book Entreleadership because, as a Pastor, I am called on to lead in a variety of settings that require real know-how.  I do not need another book about leadership theory…I need one that gives proven, real-life methods of leadership.

    At age 38, I am finally starting to understand what it takes to be a leader. Up
    to this point, I thought I had to be given a leadership position by others. I
    realize now that I can’t wait to be handed leadership because the true leaders
    will pass me by. We have used Dave’s techniques to by debt free. I would love to
    know what he has to tell me about leadsership and entrepreneurship.

    I would love a copy of Dave’s book because he changed my life. I a better husband man and boss because of his advice. We were able to pay off 60,000 dollars worth of debt in five years and become a man who could respect himself and be respected.

    My husband and I own and operate two radio stations in our city, one of which we broadcast   Dave Ramsey’s show live every afternoon.  We are very familiar with Dave Ramsey and believe he is doing an awesome job of helping people with their money matters.  Business is great, but business is hard.  The economy has had a dramatic impact on our businesses over the past three years. We are working smart and hard and believing that with God’s help, our future does look brighter. My husband and I are readers and would be thrilled to receive a copy of Dave”s  new book, EntreLeadership.  We have been involved in radio for over 20 years and am certain that we could learn more from reading Dave Ramsey’s new book.

  • Brina_Harwood

    I am not an entrepreneur.  I am a mother of 4 who works full time in the commercial real estate business.  I am an avid volunteer both in my church and increasingly in my community at large.  I am at the base of a grassroots movement to help an underserved community in my area.  In addition to all of this, I am also a newly committed blogger who is uncovering the giftings that God has given me after years of mourning the fact that I’d been given none.  In nearly every role that I take on it is as leader or manager or administrator and believe that there is a great role for me to play in God’s Kingdom, now what that ultimately is, I’m not sure.  I believe that this book can help prepare me for what is and what is to come.

    Dave’s practical, no-nonsense approach is refreshing and his advice is a must read for everyone!  Leadership is not just for the business owner/manager.  We need leadership in all walks of life.

    I actually sleep with one of Dave’s books. Dave’s knowledge on finances actually enabled me to get out of debt and start my own small business to chase my passion.
    Can’t wait for this to come out, I’m all over it.

    I want to be a better leader to my team at work. I already follow Dave’s advice on the home front, but want to be able to use his knowledge at work too. This book will not only help me, but many others. Thanks

  • Matthew Gross

    What do I think I could learn from this book? I think possibly three things. 1) you can’t be a leader professionally without being a leader in your home. I think there would be a part in the book on that. So I think it could teach me to be a better leader in my home. 2) As a person who wants to start his own business. I think 20 years of Dave’s experiences with his failures and successes this book would be the greatest key to to seccess anyone can get. 3) My position in the Army I am a leader. This nook would help me be a better leader in all areas in my life both privately and professionally.

  • Paris

    It’s amazing how God works. Today on my commute into work I was listening to Jon Acuff’s book, ‘Quitter,’ and he was talking about how Dave was speaking on ‘EntreLeadership’ principles in their staff meetings and how the concepts were so revolutionary that staff members starting bringing friends and family into the meetings to hear Dave’s ideas.

    Being a young professional at the moment, I try to absorb the wisdom from those who have done this for much longer than I have. “Success is when preparation meets opportunity,” and at the moment, I’m working on preparing myself as best I can for that golden opportunity.

    I’ve been intrigued with the Christ-centered, real-world, application-based messages of Dave Ramsey since first inquiring about Financial Peace through my church. I expect to continue to learn so much more from Dave Ramsey, whether I receive a free copy of this book or I need to purchase it. 

  • Rebecca L.

    I have several small business ideas that would capitalize on my and my husband’s skill sets and, if successful, would enable one (or both!) of us to finally be able to spend more time with our three beautiful children. For any of these to be a success, rather than more of a time drain than our current 9-5s, I want to ensure I start them *right*! My children are growing so quickly, and I don’t want to lose any time to having to clean up first-timer mistakes! I know, with Dave’s aid, we can not only continue our debt snowballs, but we can run a small business with strength, agility, and moral standing. And we can pass *all* of this knowledge on to our next generation!

  • http://somewiseguy.com ThatGuyKC

    I want a copy of this book because the subject of leadership is an important topic that wasn’t covered in my MBA. Also, as I pursue leadership opportunities at work and in church I want to have the best tools at my fingertips. Study the best, aspire to greatness.

    Secondly, I believe that I can help Dave and Howard Books get his message out to a worldwide audience of leaders and leaders-in-the-making through http://www.leadershiptips.tv, when it is launched in January 2012.

  • Hope Zeller

    What a great opportunity that you, Dave,  and Howard Books is offering.  My husband and I would love the honor of receiving this book.  We are recent college graduates (c/o 2009) and after working for a Fortune 500 company since I graduated, I felt God leading me last Spring to leave my well-paying and amazing job to go full-time with the non-profit organization that we started. 

    My husband has felt God’s leading of this organization since he was in high school and God has blessed us with ironing out details and providing people to help.  My husband (and his brothers) played basketball in college and I was a cheerleader.  We use our gifts in these two sports to not only provide elite training, but we teach character values such as honesty, attitude, motivation, responsibility, good manners, proper handshake, serving others, and many more.  Our curriculum works with kids and their parents to encourage and teach these values, while promoting a family-based atmosphere.  Our goal is to use this platform to connect these families with local ministries to provide them with fellowship and consistent encouragement.  The organization is called “DistinXion,” to represent our goal of being distinct in character and sport. This year has been our “launch” year with 8 camps this past summer and for the most part, it has been going great!  My husband has grown a lot as our President, but we feel as if God is on the verge of greatly multiplying our possibilities to offer this experience for more students across our state.   However, we all feel as though we would greatly benefit from more training regarding running the business and running it well.  While we are following God’s leading, we are in need of specific business training that is rooted in the Word.  We would appreciate the opportunity to learn from Dave Ramsey and this book.  Thank you for the consideration. (If you’d be interested, feel free to visit our website to learn more about us at http://www.distinXion.org)

  • Cindy

    I want a copy of this book because right now I’m at the bottom finanically. I’m broke. So that makes me normal. I’d be hopeless except for my relationship with Christ and sheer faith that things will soon be better. At work I’m surrounded by examples of poor leadership and disillusioned co-workers. I don’t have the power to change much but I can change me and lead by example and pass the flame to others and maybe, just maybe, make a noticeable difference from the bottom up. I hope this book can help me do that.

    I’ve heard great reviews on Dave Ramsey’s books, especially Financial Peace. My parents have implemented the advice from Financial Peace and are making their way to financial freedom.

  • http://www.briandshelton.com Brian D. Shelton

    What can I (or anyone) learn from Dave’s book? Nothing directly. That is because knowledge is in the mind; wisdom in the hands. In other words, just ‘knowing’ something isn’t true learning. You have to ACT to truly learn. That is why I want to read the book – to uncover ACTION items I can implement to improve, to grow.

    I am a physical therapist and strength coach.  I have taught many times in my profession, but believe I should do more learning throughout my career.  I have been involved in several aspects of church leadership and as a volunteer leader in many arenas.  I have long been desirous of  being a strong leader in my home and community.  I fail miserably many times.  I also have shied from starting my own practice due to many differing reasons…financial, fear of failure, and age; but, still believe I will make the jump to independent practice in the future and defininitely will need the wisdom of a man like Dave Ramsey on my side.  This books seems like a perfect tool to head in the direction I would like to go with my career.

    Hi Mike,

    We definitely need this book.  We now have two kids in college, and have recently lost about 15% of our annual income.  We’re having a tough time making ends meet, and I’m looking for some financial wisdom that will help us adjust to the changes, but honor God’s perspective on being stewards at the same time.

    Working in the Real Estate world for the last 20 years, books, tapes, seminars are what keep me going.  I dont listen to the news, and hear all the negatives that the media says.  I need to constantly fill my tank, or I get empty, and have nothing to offer to my employees or my customers.

    Sounds like this book will be like “Who Moved My Cheese”.  Everytime you read it, you get something new out it, depending on what you are going thru at that time.

    I am currently reading Financial Peace Revisited.  I am in a book club with about 25 others and will definately share with them this new book.

  • Brett Domeny

    I want a copy of this book because I am about to hit the “real world” of business and want the nuts & bolts from a proven success. I am 22 years old and am finishing my MBA with an emphasis in Finance. I believe I have been called to be good at making money not for myself but to help world-impact organizations, most of which are small businesses. I want to be able to go to these organizations and not only show them how to best use their money to benefit their purposes, but also teach them effective leadership. Whether the company has 5 employees or 500 employees management is key and for these types of companies failure doesn’t mean just a lost profit, it symbolizes a lost dream and vision.

    Even though I am finishing my MBA, I realize that education is but half of the help you need to be successful in the business world. The other half is real-world experience and guidance. I have been very excited about this book because I think that Dave Ramsey is a man blessed by God with great wisdom and I just want to soak it up.

    By me reading this book, I am able to take these principles and imprint them into my head and onto my heart to be able to impact the business world and the world as a whole, in the future.

    This is just what I need and right when I need it.

That’s why I’m seeking the best direction possible from those who’ve already been there, using their God-given talents and passion to serve others.

    As a small business owner, a recent graduate of FPU, and a Dave Ramsey Show listener I have first-hand felt the positive influence Mr. Ramsey and the wisdom he shares effect my life in great way. I have been eagerly awaiting his book Entre Leadership as I think it will help me grow my business from the 2 man operation it is today to something major, as well as give me practical wisdom that will help my wife and I in the church that we serve at as deacons. This is amazing being able to give 100 copies of his books away, our country needs his type of business and leadership sense.

    What a timely opportunity!  One of the students  I’m mentoring (who attends Liberty U) just tweeted me this weekend that I needed to get Entreleadership real soon.  If I can get a copy, it would allow me to engage with him on the various topics discussed in the book. Not to mention, the money I would save would buy lunch when we get together when he comes home. So it’s a double investment into the life of an aspiring leader on the campus of Liberty University…(and his starving mentor.)

    Dave Ramsey has impacted my thinking on money after completing Financial Peace earlier this year – it has greatly impacted everything about how we handle finances at home.  In following Dave this year on twitter, the quotes from this book have been inspiring, motivating and makes me really want to read the book and have a greater impact in my professional life.  I am currently running a new division and second location for my company.   My focus however is on the Debt Snowball – so this book purchase is not on the immediate buy list for the short-term.

  • Niki

    I would LOVE a copy of this book! 

    My husband just left his position as the worship leader for a church after 6 years. We have two children, ages 3 and 1, and I am my husband’s administrative support. This book looks like it would be a tremendous help to us right now, as we desire a “business coach” in my husband’s entrepreneurial endeavors as a musician, worship leader and music producer.

  • Care

    I believe what you do, what you say and who you are affects and touches people in ways you may never ever know. People are like their shadows, extending to where they may never be. David Ramsey (and you, Michael)  have been like that through life, through  work, through the messages. I am a newly self-published author, who took a HUGE leap of faith to see it published; my husband and I are seeking God’s direction and affirmation on what we know is to be great thngs – we just want to stay the steady course and on the path –  especially as I recieved word last week that I am in remission from my 11th separate battle with cancer. (I’ve been fighting since I’ve been 19 – I’m in my 50’s right now).  I, too, have been to the school of ‘hard knocks’ aka: Does Job Have a Sister? I KNOW that what is shared in this book could help launch me to encourage others, bring HOPE. especially to those who ‘get it’ in a world that doesn’t want to, and to a people who desperately need to “HEAR it”……I would be honored to be a reciepient of the book.

    I am stepping out in faith as a new blog writer. I’ve just started (literally, waiting on my hosting platform to e-mail that I’m good to go) a new blog focusing on deals, coupons, and sales in my local area. There are lots of small businesses in the city I live in, and I want to encourage and expose them, plus make a living myself. This is a need in my community.

    A copy of Dave’s book would help me make more of the correct choices and avoid most of the pitfalls of a new business owner.

    I admire Dave Ramsey for many different reasons. I trust his wisdom and act upon it on a regular basis. I have been looking forward to the launch of this book because Dave always speaks of awesome business practices. I want to run my business like Dave’s!

    I’m interested in being a leader and in being an innovative entrepreneur. I’ve been impressed w/Dave’s advice for some time, so I assume this book will be very informative, too.

    3. I need a new book to read 
    4. I don’t own any of Dave Ramsey’s books

    As you can see I could really put this book to good use.

    I really want this book because I believe it has all the essentials to running a successful business with the right values to win.

    I have been coordinating FPU at Granger Community Church for 5 years and have seen hundreds of lives changed.  My husband and I just started a business and would LOVE to hear more about Dave’s philosophy on business leadership.  We have been personally adapting his principles and now will adapt his business leadership skills.  Would be honored to be chosen to win one of his books.
    Thank you, Susan Frucci

  • Tj Adkinson

    Although I have already purchased Dave’s newest book, EntreLeadership, I would love to win a second copy from you, Michael, and donate it to my organization’s library for others to enjoy and learn from where I work. Thanks for considering me!

    If Ramsey’s advice is so vital for households, how much more for businesses.

    I am looking forward to reading this book.  I have long had a desire to open my own business and knowing what I know about Dave Ramsey and his organization, I know this book will be worth the purchase price and much more.  Thank you for giving this book exposure, I’m sure it will help those who want to be helped.  It was listening to Dave every night at my freezer warehouse job with one of my friends that encouraged me to quit laying on the bottom of the pile and start on my way up.  Still a ways to go, and I am hopeful this book will help.

    I’d love a copy of this book. I’ve learned so much from Dave Ramsey on how to steward my finances better and I’d love to hear from him as well about how to be better at business.

  • Benayski

    I NEED this book! Dave Ramsey is a business leader with integrity. That combination isn’t easily
    Found! I’m starting a new business endeavor & believe this book can guide me, step by step on my path to success not only with my business but with the ministry I lead at church. This book has so many leadership aspects, I believevi would become a better leader in every are of my life, home, ministry & work. I pray you’d select me!!

  • Bryan Klobe

    What a wonderful opportunity!  I pastor a small church of about 60 people.  We are trying to make an impact in our town with some innovative ideas.  We struggle on getting the word out and the changes we are making cause some in the church to be nervous which leads to conflict.  This book, I believe, will help us develop a focused vision for our church, deal with conflict as it arises, teach us how to get the word out and execute our plan.   On a personal note I think I will benefit personally in areas of organization and delegation.

    My husband is a loyal listener to Dave Ramsey! I would love to surprise him with a new copy of his book.

  • http://twitter.com/johnjlawlessjr John J. Lawless Jr.

    My wife & I just finished reading Dave’s book the Total Money Makeover. Since then, we have gotten ourselves on the same page financally with our goals & our finances. We also have taken the lessons learned from the book and passed them down to our 7 kids combined from our past marriages. I firmly believe that this new book will have the same impact on our family because we own & operate 2 small businesses and we love to pass them down to next generation. Thus, the potential for the impact of us reading the book together is unlimited. We would like to thank you & the Dave Ramsey Team for offering us with an opportunity like this. Congratulations to the winners & God Bless. Thanks for your investment into others.

    My mom always spoke with pride about the store they ran back in the Philippines. I never had any business sense growing up – even selling the school fundraiser candy/subscriptions/gift wrap was torture.  But I always remember how she described how she felt an important part of her community.

    I’m not saying I’m reading to jump in and start a business tomorrow – but when I _am_ ready, I’ll like to know what and what not to do in order to have the best chance at succeeding.

    Here’s hoping I win!

    I’ve been a student of leadership and management for more than 10 years now and this book (together with the other business books that I’ve been reading and studying) will definitely help me a lot as I start out on my own as an independent consultant and, eventually, slowly build a business organization

  • http://twitter.com/AaronSebastian7 Aaron Sebastian

    I am in my early twenties and have always wanted to start a leadership institute. In the meantime I am learning by leading in my church and looking to start my own business. I am really looking forward to reading this book and gaining some proven principles! 

  • Elizabeth M Phillips

    I’ve listened to Dave Ramsey some on radio and have read some of his books.  He has helped a lot of people.  He has gone through difficult times, learned some things the hard way, but he’s stuck with it and I really believe many can learn something from him.  Personally, I am in a start up business right now and would really appreciate his new book.  I’m sure I will learn a lot from it.  Thanks.

  • Debteleha


    I desperately need a copy of this book for my husband who wants to quit his day job and get involved with an internet job. Actually I’m hoping he will not quit until he gets established. He really needs some sensible trustworthy advice which I know he will get from Dave Ramsey. Please help. I don’t want my husband’s dream to turn into a complete nightmare. Thank you for giving us this opportunity.

    “All are entrepreneurs, but many don’t have the opportunity to find that out.”  Mohammad Yunus might not agree, but I think his quote applies to Americans just as well. Our challenge is finding the *mental* opportunity; to see beyond the cubicle comforts. 

    There’s a growing group of us entrepreneur-types in Denver who meet monthly, and many of us believe that America is heading into a season where entrepreneurship is not just going to grow, it’s  going to keep growing for a long time to come — and change the employment landscape of our country. (I get so excited at the thought!)  I have a little biz of my own, but the real work (for me) is in trying to build networks of entrepreneurs for mutual support and the exchange of practical resources, such as the kind Dave offers in his book. So to be honest I don’t actually mind buying Dave’s book — what I’d really like is to pick his brain and yours about bigger initiatives, how to encourage people’s inner-entrepreneur to come out, and what we can do now to prepare the future to embrace them. We have solid ideas – big ones – but they need work. I don’t suppose you would have time for a coffee in Denver in the next week or two? I meant it — my treat?  

    It’s generous of you/Dave to offer these free copies — Thank You!

    I would love to get this book, because I’ve recently started working for an organization that has downsized, and the survivors need some renewed leadership and mentoring.  I strongly believe in their talents, and want to do anything I can to invest in them, and their ability to grow as future leaders.


  • Brett Adams

    I have been a small biz owner for about 2 yrs… I am getting ready to hire employees and would love to read a copy of this book before I upsize my business.

  • mlabaguis

    I have been working for 17 hrs as an employee. A leAder coming from the ranks and moving up and knowing how to run business of my employer. I would like to start my own business and learn from others who have done it before. I need to get the inspiration from this book to finally make a breakthrough as an entrepreneur. And evetually be a good example and share the lessons I will learn to others who are still reluctant to try it out as entrepreneur.

    I believe from your synopsis that I can learn from this book and start building a successful story of my own to share in the near future.

  • SockerKnut

    Having taken over a company from my father that was basically non-existent due to no demand for it’s product, I am trying to resurrect the company with a new image and business plan. Having no prior business ownership experience, this book is definitely what I need to be sure that the growth, direction, and overall success of the company is on track.

    I have taken Dave’s Financial Peace University, and interested in applying these techniques to the business world, in addition to management/leadership techniques. I know Dave can definitely provide this insight for anyone in my position.

  • http://www.ramseyduck.com Ramsey Duck

    I’m intrigued by what Dave Ramsey is doing beyond his financial counseling.  I’m a follower and fan of Jon Acuff and I’ve enjoyed hearing his perspective on what it has meant to join the Dave Ramsey team and his respect for Dave’s leadership.  I’m interested in different voices and perspectives on leadership because it is far more complicated than any one thinker can explain. At the same time I’m a proponent of keeping things simple and effective and it sounds like Entreleadership covers that approach very well.

  • M Harpole

    My husband & I have been following Dave’s principles for several years…I can’t wait to read Entreleadership!

  • http://twitter.com/amyragland Amy Ragland

    I am a leader in our family-owned business, our church, and in my own home.  I struggle with balancing my servant’s heart with solid leadership skills.  Take delegation, for example.  As someone whose primary love language is acts of service, I often take things upon myself that would be better delegated to someone else.  

    My goal is to apply proven, tried-and-true business principles while basing every decision on Biblical truth.  Dave Ramsey’s writing and speaking always builds upon common sense approaches coupled with Christian perspective.  I can apply Ramsey’s wisdom in my next venture, be it a new small business, taking care of my family, or in my leadership roles within the community.

  • James S

    I would like a copy of Dave’s new book because I have never read any of his books. My brother in law raves about Dave Ramsey and I would like to see what I’m missing.

    I’m a TV writer/producer as well as an elder at my church.  Reading this post has made me aware that I seem to be more entrepreneurial in my work and more of a leader in my church; I’d love to bring those skills together to better serve the church as well as better lead those with whom I work.  I believe this book can help me do that (and more!).  Thanks to Dave Ramsey sharing his experience and to you for offering his book!

  • Che

    I am a Pastor who is, like most, expected to know everything about, well, everything. I’m always surprised at how many people assume I know about money and business. One of the best decisions I made years ago was to read Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover. Not only did it change my life, but it gave me a platform to address personal financial issues that so many of my congregants were facing. It became my “go to” source for financial peace and a book I have repeatedly bought, given away and referred others to.

    Now I find myself trying to answer questions of young entrepreneurs in my congregation – questions I don’t have practical answers for. Dave’s book would help me help others. That’s why I want it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Limas/100001352594185 Michael Limas

    I have read all of Dave’s other books and would love to imbibe from the well, better known as Dave Ramsey, on leadership this time. It would be great to continue on my life long journey to continue to grow and learn more and more.  

  • dspallone

    I would love to read this book by Dave Ramsey as I know there is much I can learn from him. I work at Christ Fellowship in Miami and with a non-profit called Caring For Miami. I’m also in college and pursuing a degree in Business. Based on the description you have provided on this book, it sounds like it is a must read for me. It would definitely fit in with my library. Much of what I read is leadership based, including John MacArthur books. Like Charlie Johns said, “You are the same today as you will be in five years except for two things, the people you meet and the books you read.” I would love for EntreLeadership to be one of the books I read. I would also love fore Dave Ramsey to be one of the people I meet. :-)

  • Chuck Ragland

    After many years in vocationally ministry and working in the marketplace at the same time, God has opened a door for me to concentrate in ministry in the marketplace. The company I have worked for is giving me increased opportunities for leadership and I think Dave’s book EntreLeadership will be of great value to me.

  • Deborahpendell

    What a great book to share with my son who is a budding entrepreneur who is reading all he can get his hands on concerning leadership. Both the old and the young can learn about leadership.

    I have been using Dave’s FPU teachings to start my business. There are things that just don’t fit. I believe these items will be better explained in Entreleadership. A copy would be a great asset to my learning.

    I have founded a non-profit serving families with deaf and hard of hearing kids and worked as a Sales Manager with a team in two states. I’m always looking to improve my skills in all areas of life.  I’m starting a new path that includes leadership, so this book is of great interest to me.

    This book is on my to get list/read list due to the fact that I am starting the process to leave the military and seek a new career. I have started the process of opening two businesses in the past, but did not have the time to carry through with those goals. This time, I am on track and have a passion to get into the financial counseling or advising career field, with the plan to own my own practice in the future. I would love to be able to learn from Dave Ramsey in his “Entreleadership” book as I have through many of his other books. I love to read and absorb what others have learned so that I may be able to get on a track to make the right decisions that will help me grow and run my life and business as well as help others along the way.  The world needs more people that helps others, and have the right morals and leadership at work!

    Ever since I hard Dave speak at conference last winter, my financial situation has greatly changed. Though I am not a small business leader, I am a recent college grad looking for my place in business. Since I hope to be a leader at my current work, and a small business owner in the future, I think Dave’s book would help me start shaping my future now so that I can succeed in the business world tomorrow.

    Hi! This probably isn’t going to be as professional a comment as some others. It has taken me a very long time to learn how to use money. I’ve been in and out of debt over the years. I’ve spent and wasted money on fruitless items, circumstances and people. I’ve tried to learn how to best keep money but it wasn’t until I picked up and read Dave’s Total Money Makeover (in one sitting) that I was able to take a good long hard look at myself and admit that I not only didn’t know how to spend money, but that I also didn’t respect it enough. And that’s why I kept finding myself in debt when really, I make enough to where there ought to be a few thousands in my account and there isn’t . Yet. Dave’s book changed all that for me and I’m finally starting to get to be in a position that I should have been years, ago, namely in the green. I think EntreLeadership represents the next natural stage of progression for me  as I ultimately wish to become a business owner. It wasn’t until I adopted Dave’s view of saving and gained a Christian viewpoint of spending that I understood that I could go from someone who wasted money doing unnecessary spending to a guy that could one day buy assets, and never be forced to used Credit again. I need this book because I am still learning and hope to be able to help others learns about money like Dave has taught me. Ultimately I’ll arrive to where I neeed to be and I hope that winning Dave’s book will be a valuable part of that .

  • Colbyclark

    I’ve listened to Dave on leadership podcasts, and I’m probably even more amazed at his leadership than I am his financial wisdom. I strive to follow both, and truly want to read this book. It would be a blessing!!

  • http://www.tnealtarver.wordpress.com TNeal

    I simply want to say, if this book is as good as his previous books, it will help people in practical ways. His financial advice is aggressive truth that motivates people to make wise money decisions.

    Thanks, Mike, for this opportunity to inform and bless your reading tribe.

  • http://www.rickwomack.com Rick Womack

    As someone who interacts with college students on a regular basis, this book will add value in my mentoring efforts with them.

    Dave is an essential part of my day. As a young retail store manager, I feel as though this book could greatly benefit myself as well as my staff. I know there are many things that I could do better to be more affective and I’m certain that Dave’s words of motivation are what I need to propel to become an entre leader.

    I read Dave’s Total Money Makeover about 2-3 years ago and my life was completely changed. For the first time in my life, I kept a budget and had a financial plan. Since starting his plan I paid of a student loan and my car! Dave’s teachings have truly changed my wife and I’s lives. I am excited about this book because, as an aspiring entrepreneur, I am always looking for practical advice and wisdom, and I know that Dave will deliver just that. And I expect that this book, just like his other ones, will change my life for the better!

    Eleven years ago I co-founded a company that offers a web application service to churches for small groups and discipleship.  We bootstrapped development and grew organically until we were able to support ourselves full time and now have built the foundation for taking the company to the next level.  Dave’s thinking about finances have helped form our financial decisions.  If this book is as helpful for business growth as that one was for finances, it would be a huge blessing for me at this stage of our growth.

  • Hrhanson

    My two housemates just came back from the Peace Corps, and one is running his own business.  Things are a lot different business wise in the States than they’re used to dealing with in Ghana.  I want him to succeed, and I think this book would help him a lot.

  • Anonymous

    As a 22 year old recent Bible college graduate and new outreach pastor, the book EntreLeadership would be a help to me in several different areas:

    As a new outreach pastor at a church, the book would help me refine the programs I have already begun to put in place to teach our church members how to train others and get involved in a new ministry.

    Because I also have the opportunity to teach and coach at our church’s Christian School, the book will help me train the next generation of America’s leaders in effective leadership.

    I have also been recently blessed with a wonderful wife who teaches at our Christian School as well. This book will allow me to lead her better as a husband, as well as give her the tools to better lead her high school students.

    Thank you for considering me.

  • Toddashby

    I have just recently taken the helm, as owner and managing partner of a small marketing agency. I have worked in the industry for 15 years bad have been very successful…but the new role brings new responsibilities that I’ve never encountered before. I would love to add Mr. Ramsey’s years of knowledge and experience to my tool box. The school of hard knocks is not one that I wish to graduate from!


  • http://twitter.com/JRandorff James Randorff

    Being a leader in the military who gets promoted… that doesn’t requires much.  Being a leader in the military who makes a difference, both on the mission and in the lives of those whom they lead… that requires humility, vision, intellect, empathy, decisiveness, drive, loyalty, and a whole host of other character traits.

    Being that leader requires going that extra-extra mile to learn more about yourself, about the mission, and about your seniors, peers and subordinates.I want to be that leader.  I’m in the US Military — one of the biggest and most influential companies in the world — and I insist on doing WORK THAT MATTERS!

    I am slowly and methodically working my way through “Dave’s Library”.  Currently, I am reading and absorbing Dr. Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”  Regardless of whether I am selected to receive a free copy of EntreLeadership, I can give a 100% guarantee that I will be reading it by year’s end.Michael, thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of EntreLeadership.

  • Hawkfan88

    I am between jobs and looking to collect my thoughts on what it takes to make a real difference as a leader. I desire to minister to others while developing my skills as a ministry coach. I love to learn and lead. Dave Ramsey has helped my wife and I to get back in charge of our finances and I am hopeful that in reading this book I will get some clarity on how these same principals will help me be the leader I know I can be. Thanks so much for making this book available and for your blog and review of Daves book. I look forward to reading it.

    As a husband and wife in ministry and on our way towards financial freedom we could really benefit from this. We have future goals that all involve knowing how to lead others and remain confident in our smart business decisions. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I loved how straight forward Dave has been in his books and radio show about personal finance, which I believe many people need to hear.  Now I am excited to hear what he says about starting a business and running one.  Which when we talks they are not theories but actually proven and tested experiences he has been through and willing to pass along.

      There is a real difference between leaders and managers. Having worked more with managers who implement “fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants” policies that sacrifice the notion of being proactive and innovative, I have been determined to set an example as a non-stop work in progress that bucks the trend of the status quo. As Dave has worked with the business community as well as that of church leadership, I anticipate many unlimited benefits being reaped from taking the time to read his book and absorbing the insight into true leadership of which Dave has painted a picture with a brush of wisdom and crafted in a deliberate way with a chisel of hardcore truth.

  • steve czeck

    As a small business owner who desires to be used to change the culture of business in my city, i recognise i need other great leaders to speak into my life, inspire me to do more, be better at what i do. Dave`s new book would be another tool in my bag, that i can use to effect change

  • Michele

    My husband & I started a small business 5 years ago
    this Oct. We followed the principles Dave teaches in our personal finances and it gave us the ability to leave our jobs at Fortune 500 companies to do what we are passionate about because we saved. We want to continue to grow our business and lead well. We’d love to read this book!

  • Brian Frodermann

    I am a first time leader of a new ministry that is the partnership of 17 churches striving to serve their community better.  Our mission is to “Mobilize the Church to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ.”  Therefore, our focus is on mobilizing churches and individual Christians within those churches to serve their community.  This requires me to both raise up and support a team of volunteer leaders from 17 churches who will in turn support volunteers from their churches.  I have had wonderful support through a dedicated Board of Directors and a challenging Mentor, but I am always looking for more input to increase my output.  May I please have a free book?

    • Brian Frodermann

      Thank you!

  • Vern Bolte

    I’m a huge Dave Ramsey fan and would love to have a copy (or 100 copies) of his new EntreLeadership book.  I feel our country, communities and churches are starving for good leadership role-models.  I like to read and I’d love to be one of those leader.  I expect Dave through his new book will be handing out nuggets of common sense presented in a way that challenges the reader to stop the whining and complaning and get up and DO something…with gazelle intensity.

    I’m the volunteer leader for the ministry to men in our church.  We facilitate 2 to 3 Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University courses every year.  Friday (September 30) we will host our second annual EntreLeadership 1-day event in Washington State (Puyallup).  http://www.southsoundentreleadership.com/

    I feel I have some things in common with Dave because I’ve been in the real estate (home Building) business and got caught with too much debt and now have to start again.  My passion and mission personally is to coach small business and non-profit Entreleaders.  I’d love to be a certified EntreLeadership (or Micheal Hyatt) coach.  

    If I had 100 books, I’d give 50 to the attendees at the EntreLeadership Simulcast Friday and I’d send 50 to Africa with the team from our church going this November to find ways we can help and mentor young African pastors needing to financially support themselves as they plant churches in the Malawi area.  EntreLeaders in Africa …sounds pretty cool.

  • Mmgreen623

    Hi!  I am actually new to Dave Ramsey and his organization.  Already, I have begun to put a lot of his principles to action in just a week.  I bought his book “Financial Peace Revisited” yesterday and am almost done reading it.  There are so many gems in that book and I am well on my way to accomplishing them.  When I heard that he has a book about business, I was totally in shock.  I am currently beginning a small tutor business and need guidance.  I am a college student and don’t know where to begin.  This book, EntreLeadership, would  help tremendously!  Thanks :)

  • John Hooker

    I am writing from South Africa. I have
    been in business for over 35 years (on my own, without Him as a
    partner) and was only partly successful. I could have used this book
    at the beginning. My son, who is not a Believer………. yet, is
    just starting out on his own and I would love him read this book
    instead of some of some of the leadership books available, which are
    all about SELF.

  • Sherri

    I would love a copy of this book because I’m in the process of starting a non-profit agency for community service. This is a new venture for me and I can use all the help I can get.  My husband and I have his Total Money Makeover book and I know that he shoots straight and tells it like it is…the good, the bad, and the ugly. Thanks for letting us know about this book. It sounds great! 

  • Dyaji Charles

    After reading a review of Dave Ramsey’s new book should be in my hands. I think this book is perfect for me and it came in at a time where I was newly made the COO in my organization. I surely want to be an EntrepreLeader. I want to be able to lead my organization such t hat when I leave I will leave it more profitable and filled with leaders that I have been able to groom. Also, it has been my desire to work more on the art of delegation. I lead a team of young and energetic people and I think I should lay my hands on this book.

    Mike, thank you in anticipation. 

  • Gary Vien

    I am so excited for Dave to finally put his teachings of his ways to run a business. As a small business owner, we are looking for ways to knock it out of the park, keep the business simple and to grow it organically and debt free. Thank goodness we attended his Entreleadership one day class in Tampa several years ago – it helped give some guidance and bumpers for our decisions. We have been living the Dave plan for several years now and the peace we have found in our family is very powerful and humbling.

    I am a Pastor . I think I need this book.

  • Rebecca Batty

    What an exciting opportunity! For you and for us, thank you & thank you Howard Books! I have enjoyed the Dave Ramsey Show since early 1997. I have had the amazing opportunity to meet him at a TMMO live event but have yet been able to attend his Entreleadership event! I have excitedly followed him on twitter as this book was being written and prepared for release and would be honored to win a copy. I am an entrepreneur at heart and hope to apply the principles from this book to guide me to success. Thank you, again!

    I’m so excited about the new book EntreLeadership by @DaveRamsey:twitter  and now I have an opportunity to win one…you can enter, too,  just check out this article! GOOD LUCK!

    I can learn how to do what God wants in a more effective way.  We own a business, but it’s been clearly revealed that it’s more so a ministry because of the lives it will touch and inspire.  We are in position now to take off and leading  is a major, critical component that must be done properly.  God must be glorified in everything we are led to do.

  • Earl Powers

    Thanks for the great review of Dave’s book. I love his radio show, and devoured TMM when it came out. It’s wonderful to have a voice like his in today’s business environment. I love the idea of entrepreneurship but have difficulty with the practical steps I need to take in order to make a change in my life. From your review it sure seems like Dave’s book would be just what the doctor ordered to to help send me on my way.

  • Pastor Darren B

    Ok good people, here’s a thought from ‘across the pond’ in the UK.  We here a lot in today’s financial climate about the huge importance of SME’s (Small + Medium size Enterprises). As Dave says in his video, they’re the backbone of the US economy.  They’re also the backbone of the economy over here–heh, we’re a nation of shopkeepers! And they’re the backbone of the German economy too.  My point is this, we’re increasingly trying to learn in the church from the best in the Business World. So why do we base all our church growth models on a few, huge, megachurches? Instead of learning from them, should we be looking for the best in effective, missional, small and medium sized churches?  Where are the great books for renewal and expansion in SMC’s?

    My husband and I are hoping to help get a foundation of how to run a business.  We’re trying to plan for taking over the family company in the next ten years, and we really love how Dave teaches.  Can’t wait to read this book and put it into practice.  We’re also working his FPU program, so winning a book would really help us keep focused on paying down our debt snowball!

  • david ayres

    Dave Ramsey has a very easy to follow and Biblical approach to his writings and business. I am in the process of expanding my business and will have more than just myself to lead. It is my desire to start, lead and create a God Honoring environment for both my staff and our clients. I would love to read what Dave has written and apply it to the next chapter of my business.

  • Fuyanamxo

    I am just lauching my own business at the moment and such a book will give me a very strong foundation in being a leader entreprenuer. I have read that most of businesses fail within a year soon after starting so I do not want to be another statistic.

  • Nielsenparker

    It is my dream to own my own store. I have wanted this since I was 10 and now with this book I can further develop the tools necessary to realize this dream. Being able to get a free copy is great too because every penny counts!

    I love Dave Ramsey for his frankness and openess. I have been looking forward to reading this book as I prepare to venture in Small Business ownership and as I prepare to lead my team forward into the second 20 years of our consulting business.

  • http://bradkindercoaching.com Brad Kinder

    Oh I would love to win this book! I’ve been starting my own coaching business right now and this is just what I could use.  This could be
    such a huge help to me. I am working on being able to supplement my wife’s income so that she can be an at home mom with my daughter and son and I want to have something successful I can do from home
    to give me a sense of pride in myself.  I would love to learn from this book and grow myself
    as well! Thank you for having this giveaway!!

  • Crucifiedmusic

    I would love a copy of this book so I can give it away and pay it forward. Dave’s life work has done so much for me that I want to see it bless others. I know so many that will benefit from this book and can’t wait for them to get ahead in life and business.

  • Scott Lehman

    I started reading Entreleadership on the plane from Nashville to San Diego and have never wrote so many notes in a book before.  Absolutely loving it!!!

  • http://twitter.com/jamestgordon james t. gordon

    Michael- I’d love a copy of this book because I’m in a new business venture and I’m starting to recognize the immense value of getting to gleam from the abundance of others’ experience. I love reading what you’ve encouraged because it makes wisdom so accessible. I’d love to see the tide change in our nation and believe that small businesses will be a major contributing factor. 

  • Nethers

    Recently, I’ve been handled by bad business luck. I do graphic design and freelance wit contracts; however, I don’t know the right way to get people to pay. I’m afraid of tarnishing my businesses reputation by sending them to collections but sometimes clients just won’t pay.

    I need Dave’s advice on how to run our business as a Christian.

  • L. Stamatis

    I’m going to be totally real.  I want a copy of this book because it’s free.  Who wouldn’t want free advice and free training that is worthwhile and has the potential to create dynamic change?  I’m a young coach and resident director on a college campus seeking to gain wisdom to make some kind of difference.

  • http://www.faughnfamily.com Adam Faughn

    As a minister, I am interested in seeing how Dave’s leadership and business principles translate to, as Andy Stanley calls it, “Church world.” There are several aspects I have heard him mention on the radio that translate quite well, and I am looking forward to finding more in EntreLeadership.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy!

  • Chrisrhodges

    I would love a copy of this book as I am trying to get my feet back on ground after a financial disaster that I created for myself.

  • http://twitter.com/JonathanHatt Jonathan Hatt

    As a new member of a Church Board, I feel that this book would be invaluable to me. We are experiencing turmoil and a loss of leadership. I feel that this book would provide insights and guidance as I strive to lead the church through this difficult time. Especially in the following areas:
    Making the most of time management and organization
    Making the hard decisions
    Hiring, firing, and personality styles
    Practicing the art of selling by servin
    Grasping the importance of great communication
    Amplifying your success through recognition and inspiration
    Creating compensation plans that fire people up
    Mastering the art of delegation

  • http://www.bookkeepingmakesmesick.com Kym

    As an Enrolled Agent in the midst of growing my bookkeeping and tax company, Dave has released this book right on time! I have long listened to Dave on radio and TV and have been an avid reader of his books since the beginning. I love the fact that Dave’s guidance is based on sound Biblical principals and comes from a man who has been at rock bottom and risen up from the ashes.

    I look forward to the knowledge that I can gain from Dave’s new book not only for my business but also for my leadership role over the multimedia ministry in my church. Leadership is a quest to help others obtain their goals which in turn helps a leader achieve theirs.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of the book!

    My husband and I are both small business owners. I’m dying to read this book.

  • John Schultz

    My dad and brother both run small businesses, but neither of them has taken the time to learn to be businessmen because they are too busy doing.  I think both of them would benefit from learning how to better run their business from Dave’s book.  My brother and his wife are working to make themselves debt free, but some of the things happening with his business has kept them from reaching that goal as quickly as they would like. 

  • http://thepelsers.com Amanda Pelser

    Love Dave!  Dave’s books have helped us so much in our family finances.  I’ve been eyeing this book since I first saw that it was coming.  I’m a stay at home mom and working to start my own business – blogging, VA work, etc.  Really want to read this book!

  • DKing

    We are part of a start up Classical Christian School, and EntreLeadership would be an invaluable help to us as we seek to build a school that will flourish for many generations.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1335674719 Terry Lentz

    Dave Ramsey tells us what should be obvious to us but we neglect to see.  Dave puts you on the path to both success in business and life. EntreLeadership is here to help everyone, even non-business owners because everyone from families to businesses need leaders. Can’t wait to get ahold of what has to be another great teaching from Dave.

  • http://alexspeaks.com Alex Humphrey

    Earlier this year I quit my full-time job to pursue a dream of running my business. In the three months since that happened I haven’t become a millionaire or even made much money (I’ve made about 160 dollars in that time).

    In truth, my business is still in the very early stages and there isn’t even much product to sell (though I am very close).

    However, even without any money coming in, my wife and I are financailly secure. I am about 2 months from finding a part-time job, but at that point it’ll have been over 6 months with almost no income.

    We’ve lived (and lived well) these past few months because of Dave Ramsey’s financial plan. We’ve both read Total Money Makevoer and are working through FPU and his book Financial Peace Revisited. Unlike many of our friends who are newly weds we started our marriage with no debt, 5 months worth of emergency funds, and plenty of extra money to live off of.

    Entreleadership is a book I have been excited about for awhile, but with such a low income, I’m unable to buy it in the near future. I think this book would help me fill a lot of the gaps I have in my knowledge and stop me from falling into even more pits.

    I know I will succeed; but this book will get me there much faster.

    God Bless,
    -Alex Humphrey

  • http://BrentFielder.com Brent Fielder

    I am very interested in this book – I love Dave Ramsey’s convicting common sense when it comes to money and I can only image it being that much better with business and leadership.  As a young leaders, I am encouraged to read a book from a guy who has tested it for years and not only researched it.

  • http://twitter.com/brentm00 Brent Mitchell

    I’d be very interested in hearing Dave’s perspective on leadership. My role in leadership is a subtle one, but I like to do it well.

  • Ricky

    Dave has learnt from the best over the years and having read The Total Money Makeover, I believe I can learn a lot from EntreLeadership.  A leader is what I aspire to be, and I welcome every opportunity to learn about it from those they lead by example and inspire others.

  • Jeff Angcanan

    I know this would be a valuable resource for our new business. Starting almost two years ago we experienced a major financial setback when I got laid off from work. Having not been able to get back into the “normal” workforce since then, we have, by the grace of God, been asked to be partners in putting up a small business. If we had followed Mr. Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover when I lost my job, we probably would not have been in as deep as we are with our personal finances. But we certainly want to stay ahead with this new venture. Again I would like to have a copy of this book because, judging with Mr. Ramsey’s track record, this will certainly guide us and our business into financial freedom.  

  • Glen

    Mike, Great post and Idea! I would love to get one of Dave Ramsey’s books free. I work with several young Entrepreneurs who would benefit from it. Whether I get one or not, keep up the great work! Your posts are always interesting and helpful. Thanks!

  • http://www.trinalgrant.com Trina L. Grant

    I am a freelance writer, and owner of abusiness. I actually run different operations from one umbrella proprietorship. I am certain I can learn a lot from this book as I grow my business, interact with my publishers and clients, and add on staff. My work is unique, and does not require the same things a normal store-front business might.

    I did not finish college, and did not take any business classes when I was there. I need some solid, concrete information and knowledge, not just advice. I also appreciate Mr. Ramsay’s Christian perspective on the business world. As a Christian business-person, I will be able to use his tactics and information to be able to run my business in a Godly manner. This means more to me than all the business school in the world. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • Michelle Myers

    I would LOVE a copy of this book to help inspire a new team member I have recently signed in my business. My husband and I have a new baby, he’s a pastor, and I’m building my business from home while raising our son. God has blessed us so much, but things are still tight financially and I am unable to spoil my team members the way I wish I could. I would LOVE to be able to gift this book to a new team member I feel has a lot of potential. Dave Ramsey has taught us so much, and we want to spread his message to our team!

    Mr. Hyatt, I want a copy of Dave Ramsey’s new book for two reasons: 1.) Dave’s “Financial Peace University” has truly blessed my marriage. My wife and I are grateful to God for Dave’s vocation. 2.) As a leader in our church, I desire to serve Jesus to the best of the abilities He has given me. I serve the administrative side of the church and believe this book will add value to the work of the ministry. Thank you for considering me in making your decision…love your blog!

    As a student of the Dave Ransey Financial Peace principles, my wife and I are debt free (except mortgage) for a few years now.  Unfortunately I didn’t learn these principles sooner.  I am now a business owner (minority partner) and I am really looking forward to the same “no nonsense” advice I learned from Dave about my personal finances.  I learned my leadership skills as a United States Marine, and I am anxious to become a better business leader.


  • http://inprpgressonline.com Maryanne Thornton

    I am thrilled to see Dave Ramsey take his practical wisdom and apply it to business.  I and two other partners started a Professional Development and Training consulting firm in January 2011.  We are firm believers in living debt free and are starting our business without debt to the shock of many.  Our niche market is training small businesses to become stronger and more competitive and we are excited to see Dave take his amazing & powerful information to small businesses.  We agree!  They make up the backbone of the economy, strengthen them and so goes the nation.  Go Dave!

    Having answered a ‘spiritual calling’ on my life last year, to passionately serve others on a massive scale, I accepted allowing  the Lord to direct my steps. At that moment, I choose to make a career change from owning/operating a RIA firm to educating Gen Y and X investors how to play a new game focused on building wealth for themselves, rather than a financial adviser and the financial services industry.
    I know HE has a purpose for my life, but lifetime learning from the likes of Dave and yourself continue to influence me in a positive way so I too, can differentiate myself and focus on winning the ‘race to the top…not the bottom’ via EntreLeadership.

  • Pellumb Collaku

    I have been listening to Dave Ramsey Show for more then a year now. it has been a great help for me personally and for my family to listen to such an outstanding speaker both for his ideas on money and for his brilliant way of using scriptures to address, one of the most important issues of life, money.
    When I first saw the ad for the Entreleadership book I was so excited, and since I won a free copy of StandOut by Marcus Buckingham, I was hoping that you would offer this book too, and I was not wrong, here it is. I hope you will choose me this time too.As a leader, everyone has to continually learn from great leaders. This is how I think this book will help me.

  • George LeBeau

    AS the saying goes, “Don’t ever loose your teachabililty.”  It should also say, “And don’t loose your coachability”.  I am on the cusp of starting a business and I need both.  As good as Dave has done with finances, seems like this has to be a sure thing.

    My principles and practices in leadership are formed, largely, by people who are already great leaders. Dave Ramsey is one of those people. From Financial Peace to the Great Recovery, his ideas and influence are undeniable and contagious. My hope is that this book continues to develop the right ideas about leadership and the practices that make applying those principles effective.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=548586829 Chris R. Smith

    I want Dave’s book for several reasons. One, I have read everything else he has written. He’s a great author and speaker, as I have also seen him live and talked to him via his radio show twice. Two, the saying goes that Leaders are readers and readers are leaders. For the past couple of years I have felt God pushing me into this arena. While I am not sure how exactly, I know that leadership is involved in full filling my part of His story. Three, It will help me full fill one of my goals for 2011. To read at least one non-fiction book per month. Which is something I learned from Dave because he emphasizes that’s what the average millionaire does. Irregardless, Thanks for this opportunity to help extend Dave’s influence and build a better world! 

  • http://craigtowens.com/ Craig Owens

    Dave Ramsey’s writing on financial matters completely changed my paradigm about stewardship. I am confident that EntreLeadership is going to be the same paradigm-expanding exercise about leadership. I’m looking forward to devouring this book and sharing the principles with my team.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jeremy-Walsh/100000312123101 Jeremy Walsh

    I love the pioneering spirit of Dave and the leaders he surrounds himself with.  I’m certain there are many nuggets I can get from his years of experience.  Dave’s smiling mugshot on the front of the book is enough to get anyone excited.  If you can run your own business and lead people and still have a smile on your face….you’re doing something right.   I would love to win the book.  Thanks for the opportunity Michael.  Keep sharing!!

  • Kevmar97

    I am a pastor who wants to see my personal business grow so I can minister to people without the worries of my business going south and Dave’s learning of hardknocks could help it explode not to mention the help it could towards church leadership.

  • Joe

    After 25 years in high school athletic administration and teaching, I “retired” from education and opened my open business, an awards and recognition business.  At age 50, it was a very difficult decision but one that I finally made after much research including using much of Dave’s materials.  Dave’s material are outstanding as they reek of common sense.  This new book will allow me to continue to build my business skills.  It is incredibly difficult to start a new business, especially after 25 years of working in a totally different vocation.  I would hope that the ideas shared in Dave’s book will enable me to become an effective leader in my new endeavor.  Believe me, I will take any great advice I can get.  This is a tough gig.

    I don’t think I provided an adequate answer to why I’d love a copy of the book earlier.  My wife and I are just starting out, and I’ve got one more year of law school to go before we return to having two salaries.  Dave Ramsey’s other resources have definitely helped us so far, and we appreciate all the help we can get in terms of managing finances while we live off a teacher’s salary for another year.  Thanks again for providing this opportunity!

  • Rebeccalbennett1

    As a current college junior, I hope to become a leader in
    business through hard work, determination, and simply learning from the
    experienced. I believe Entreleadership
    could assist me in accomplishing my goal by giving insights on how to get where
    I want to be and how I can leverage my knowledge and influence
    for the good of those around me. I attended Financial Peace University one year
    ago and know the impact Dave Ramsey’s materials can have on one’s life.

  • Dale Wolf

    I would love to have a copy of “EntreLeadership” because I am seriously looking into
    beginning a new business to become self employed.  My Sweetheart is a
    stay at home Mom and does have her own cake business.  Together we are
    looking into ways to grow her business and have learned some real hard
    lessons dealing with “good” people.  I know that Dave’s experiences
    would be such a great teaching tool that could be used over and over
    again in my own quest in starting my own business.  My goals are to advance the Baby Steps and to be debt free in 7 years unless I can increase my income.  I have only one way to go and that is up the ladder.  Making $13.10/hr I sure could use a copy of his book.  Otherwise, it will be the only thing I ask for at Christmas. 
    Thanks for the opportunity to acquire this highly praised book from a
    guy who is so passionate about helping others.  Dave is such an
    outstanding guy with Biblical principles that can be transferred into
    the business world.  His daily council has changed me and in-turn has
    changed my family.  Our finances controlled us, now we are not out of
    the woods yet but I am leading each dollar that comes into my house and
    telling it where to go.  I want to follow a leaders advice so I can
    in-turn train my 4 children how to become leaders themselves. 
    So actually you could say that I am looking for Christmas on September 31st  ;)Dale Wolf

      Dale, I think this book would be a great read for you and your business.

  • http://twitter.com/ColoradoCane Chadwick Collins

    I want the book for the following reasons:
    1) My wife and I are huge Dave fans
    2) I devour every book Dave writes/recommends
    3) I’m currently a resource for the HR dept at my employer who is always looking for good recommendations on leadership books for emerging/current leaders in our organization
    4) My wife has started a small event planning business and is looking for anything to help with that endeavor
    5) Getting Dave’s book for free fits Dave’s financial peace plan way better than paying for it (sorry Dave)
    6) I need something inspirational to read right now, and I’m enough of a nerd that this fits the bill
    7) If you pick me, I will shout out the review of the book and where I got it from on my blog (just ask John Miller)
    8) Like Dave quotes – “You’re the same person today that you will be 5 years from now except for the people you meet and the books you read”  – I think this book will help me be the person I’d like to be five years from now.
    9) Dave didn’t come to Denver for his book tour – he needs someone here to push the book.

    Servant Leadership.  My husband and I have already squashed the debt monster thanks to Dave and both of us have taken some major risks in our life to go after our dreams.  My husband is busy trying to get his first book published, and I quit my teaching job last year to incorporate my own non profit, that effects hope, healing and restoration through advocacy, art and action.  www.dandelion-wishes.org.  I believe that this book will be a resource to both my husband and I as we forge a path of going after our destiny.  I believe that Dave Ramsey has wisdom and revelation for both of us.   Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win a copy.

    I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2005.  I graduated high school with my cosmetology license, worked my way through Anderson University (in SC) to earn my 4 year degree in Business (graduated 2009), and have successfully built my clientele in my current salon for the past 6.5 years.  I love what I do, which is extremely important, and aspire to own a salon in the future.  I am reading and digesting EVERYTHING I can get my hands on that I feel will help me with my future plans! 

  • Derek Dix

    I am currently serving as Youth Pastor in a small church in Vancouver, WA. I feel that Entrepreneurs are in every aspect of life. A large part of who I am is a leader, teacher, and learner. I have found Dave Ramsey to be a great teacher, and person I can learn from. 

    If I were to receive this book, I would read it, study it, learn from it, and use it not only in my life, my business, but in my ministry to people. By ‘ministry to people’ I mean in my daily life with people at a coffee shop, those in my church, parents of my students, and in my family life. I also feel that this book will help me to be a better ministry leader, as a person who is working with a team of volunteer staff, volunteer adults, and a group of people, leading is essential. And I can’t think of anyone I could learn leadership from better than Dave Ramsey. 

  • Mary B.

    I am a small business owner, a high school math teacher, and a church volunteer.  This past year I have really been focused on learning better ways to teach math (and hence better ways to teach everything) and motivate myself and others.  One of the things I want to do to improve education is to address hunger — close to 1/4 of our children are currently growing up with food insecurity.  I hope this book can help me marshal my efforts and those of others more effectively and to hear God’s voice more effectively.

  • Jesse Lane

    I hope to win this book as it’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I enjoy Dave’s approach to teaching money management and look forward to hearing his take on leading in business.

  • http://www.c2itconsulting.net Chet Cromer

    12 months ago, I owned what on the outside looked like a business, but was really just a job dependent upon a lot of other businesses to stay afloat. In late August, a client that comprised 65-75% of our companies annual revenue announced that they were shutting their doors.

    In that moment, I had to decide… do I want to keep this business going? Why am I even IN business? Is this the type of work I want to be doing, something that’s so dependent upon a single company that I have no interest in that when they make a decision, my life (and those who work for me) are drastically changed?

    Since that time, we’ve come a long way. We’ve survived for a year, which is amazing in itself. We’ve picked up new clients to “bootstrap” us along the way as we’ve intensely sought out the meaning for our existence, as a business, and as individuals. Through God’s help, along with some professional coaching and some key advisors, we are continuing to walk the path, and while this summer has been lean and the autumn looks similar, there is hope and a future on the horizon.

    I love the things Dave puts out. His books, his radio show… they’re all down-to-earth, practical, and extremely personal. I expect nothing less in this book, and based on that and my own situation in life, THAT’s why I’d love to get a copy of the book.

  • Chris Johnston

    I have been to two of Dave’s one day Entreleadership events. The book would make a great reference tool when I share and discuss the concepts with others. Like most of Dave’s teachings the info really isn’t anything new but rather repackaging of age old concepts and principals in a contemporary package. I love seeing people get back to basics and thrive. The book would be one more tool in my toolbox.

  • Jdsmith16

    Having worked in two different private small business, I would really like to know Dave’s insights into what would make a GREAT small business.  With over 20 years experience in helping others and growing his own business, I am sure he has what  it takes to teach these important principles. JD

  • Anji Storrs

    Dave is fabulous on the radio.  To have all his business knowledge in one place would be amazing.
    I am pursuing a business degree, and I’d love to have a view of leadership and business management from the “other” side.
    Thank you for all you do.

    We own and operate a small business and we need practical advice of ways to save money and get ahead.

    I am a Campus Minister at the University of Central Missouri at a place called the Christian Campus House.  We are a growing ministry.  This past summer our staff grew from 3 to 5…and we hope for more growth soon.

    Particularly with the growth, working to figure out how to best structure and grow things seems imperative.  I agree with others who talk about Dave being down-to-earth and personally experienced in what he talks about.  And for me, there is no one better to learn from.

    I believe that what goes on in a ministry setting on a college campus has immeasurable potential in changing the world.  These are the leaders of the future and we will do anything we can to reach and connect with more of them to truly understand relationship with Jesus.  This book sounds like a great resource.

  • Jason Vaughn

    Thanks for the contest. I have run my own small business most of my life and my curent business since I was 19. I love Dave’s stuff and can’t wait to read this book!

    Is is people like Dave Ramsey, and those he surrounds himself with, whose voices need to be heard far above the din of gloom and doom we are fed every day through mainstream media. The secret not only to pulling out of a national slump but finding ongoing prosperity is empowering the small business leader. And when said leader is empowered, watch out — you will see him/her inadvertently leading in life, not just in business.
    I am at a stage in my life where I have never been hungrier to be resourced in this way, and then to help resource others. Bring it!

  • Andrea Roberson

    I am a newlywed Marine Corps wife.  I recently left my career to move overseas with my husband.  Since I have chosen to live the military life, we will be moving every few years.  This has left me with the idea to start my own business where I can work from home.  Dave’s book would teach me how to be an EntreLeader and eventually teach other military wives the same principles.  Dave has taught me so much about managing my money, I can’t even imagine the wealth of advice he offers in the EntreLeadership book!!!

    • http://brevis.me Robert Ewoldt

      Andrea, having a home-based business is a great way to solve your military-lifestyle moving problem. Good for you!

  • Nolan Donald

    On Saturday, my family and I were browsing in a bookstore and I looked through Dave’s new book. It looked really good, and I decided that it was one that I definitely wanted to read. I didn’t buy it because Dave wouldn’t let me! My wife and I began using the cash budget method for our personal finances right after we got married, and I didn’t have cash for the book and will have to wait until I can find the extra funds to go purchase it. (So your giving me a copy would be a welcome relief to next month’s budget!)

    On top of the budgeting principles that we’ve incorporated from Dave, I’m also a very interested student of Ramsey and Financial Peace. Having served in ministry for more than ten years, I’ve seen the effects that Ramsey’s work can have on people firsthand. Intrigued by how Ramsey was shaping the church, when I decided to work on a D.Min, I picked Financial Peace and its intersection with the Bible as my dissertation topic. I would love to read Ramsey’s newest book and begin to experience the effect of his perspective on leadership, too.

    Glad you posted this, Michael. I’m going to an all day simulcast on Friday. Looking forward to it even more!

  • Steve Franc

    I would like this book because I have been debating whether to be self-employed or stay in my current position in the tech world.  In listening to the Dave Ramsey show, a caller asked Dave whether his new book would aid him in making this difficult decision.  Dave said that yes it would and I believe it will help me in making my decision as well. 

  • Kelly

    The reason why I’d like to read this book is because my dream job requires me to build my own brand and be a role model for others. I feel this book would help me to learn more about being a leader and how to deal with many different situations that I will come in to contact with in my chosen field.

    I received a pre-release copy at the Chick Fil-A Leadercast! Just last week on my blog talk radio show, I discussed this book and your Life Plan. Dave is passionate about what he believes and is willing  to share his passion, wealth of knowledge and experience to help others. This book release could not come at a better time…I’m going to tweet this and post the video! I am attending  Catalyst and looking forward to hearing and seeing you and Dave again. God bless.

  • Chris Thurman

    I have followed Dave Ramsey’s success and principles for several years now and have heard him speak at Catalyst conference.  I believe “entreleadership” is the backbone upon which this country was built and is still the driver for jobs growth in the economy.  As a Commercial Relationship manager for a regional bank and as a lay leader in the stewardship area of my local church, I deal with “entreleaders” on a regular basis.  This new book will help me understand even better the biblical principals behind small business entrepreneurship and enhance my ability to consult and advise those in my circle of influence.  That is my ministry field.  I am excited about reading Dave’s “playbook!”

    I am a second generation business owner. My father was the entrepreneur. I am not. I am a leader. I don’t think Dad (entreprenuer) could do what I’m doing in the business now effectively. I don’t think I (leader) could have begun the business as effectively (if at all) as he did. My job is to build on his vision and steward the business until I can pass it on to one of my sons in the third generation. I am fascinated by the dynamic between these two concepts of entrepreneur and leadership and would appreciate the opportunity to read this book. I didn’t take any business courses in college, so I am definitely learning on the fly. Blessings,

  • Vania Hardy

    Currently, I’m a Digital Communications major in college, taking my senior seminar on Project Management. Wanting to be challenged and to gain experience using management abilities that others keep telling me I have, I’ve accepted the responsibility of managing my senior class’s project, which we’re producing for a real organization. 

    The role is quite the adjustment, but I do believe I am where God wants me to be. Before starting my senior year, I read a lot about leadership–on this blog, and a few other books–and engaged in conversations with leaders I look up to. I was also a summer camp counselor for the first time, which actually trained me well in the art of team-building. I see how what I’ve learned from that experience is now coming into play.

    I’m interested in the book because I’d appreciate further guidance as I not only get the hang of managing a project over the next several months, but also prepare for future leadership roles.

  • Rwmccall

    I teach Dave Ramesy’s Financial Peace University at my church. If I won this book, I would read it cover to cover and try to incorporate some of this knowledge into the FPU setting. Also, I am on the team of elders at my church. I am already a staunch advocate of staying debt free as a church, and I think the principles in this book would give me a greater understanding of how to keep our church debt free and always operating from a positive financial standpoint, which in turn would allow our church to never turn away a needy family, single mother, widow or someone else who is struggling due to a lack of available resources. I believe that the principles in EntreLeadership extend to the church setting and I am anxious to apply what I learn!

    Having been raised in a family of entrepreneurs, I fully embrace the stamina that it takes to push yourself to places that others only dream of. Entrepreneurs are not only biz owners, but people with an incredible amount of passion to put a dent in this universe and who constantly challenge the status quo.

    I became a huge Dave Ramsey fan after I read The Total Money Makeover. I started telling my wife about the baby steps and what a life without debt could look like for us. Soon we we piling on extra principal payments and cutting up credit cards. A year later I lead a financial peace university class at our church. Since then I have seen Dave’s enthusiasm and teaching change the lives of two families that are very close to us. I say all that to tell you I am going to buy Dave’s new book whether I get one for free or not. So why am I asking you for a free one?

    I am a CPA firm owner that works with other small business owners to improve their businesses and their lives. We work on much more than financial statements with our clients and the topics covered in this new book read like a syllabus for our consulting track. I am going to buy Dave’s new book. In fact, I’m probably going to buy cases of them by the time I finish sending a copy to all the clients I care about. What is one more free copy going to do? It is going to allow me to help change one more business and several more lives for the better. And that’s something worth asking for. Thanks Michael, for all you do and for supporting EntreLeadership. It really is the best thing this country’s economy has going for it.

    So yesterday on Facebook, one of my friends said they “just met Dave Ramsey” and I “liked” the comment. Then today, you are giving away 100 copies.  Coincidence? I am pretty sure that means it is God’s will that I win his new book, I’m just saying…

  • Pritchett4

    I would appreciate being considered for a copy of this book. I pastor a church and we have a number of young men who are small business owners. I am planning on starting a mentoring program with them, and this sounds like it would be a good book for the group to study together as they seek to represent Christ in their businesses and also lead their families.  Thank you for the consideration. I truly enjoy reading your blog. 

  • http://www.ncontracts.com/ Crystal Gimesh

    Dave has already taught me everything I know about personal finance.  As an entrepreneur, I am eager to see how he brings the same level of (un)common sense to the subject of leadership.  There are so many companies that really struggle with issues pertaining to less than optimal leadership-if anyone can cut through the red tape of theory and jargon to provide some practical, action oriented advice-it would be Dave.   

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=557102426 Steve Thompson

    I am a “nuts and bolts” kind of person so I look forward with anticipation as to what Dave has to share in regards to the leadership principles he has learned over the years.  I am on the precipice of jumping into a new leadership role and would like to equip myself for this new endeavor.  Having this book would be a great tool in my toolkit to get me started.

    As a pastor of a small church, I think it would be vital to read this book to make sure I have a solid Biblical foundation for the church and my own finances.

    This book by Dave Ramsey will  allow me the knowledge to lead better in my work environment (Church setting) while also giving me ammunition to help people who come to me needing advice and help,which happens alot, given I work with volunteers at a church.

    My name is luke kennedy. I am a 25 year old church planter in Japan. Our church is growing very fast and needs the finances to keep up. About 300 young people are in church and more are finding god every week.

    I came to this city 3 and a half years ago and with a dream of building something for the next generation Japan. It’s happening but we are just getting started. This is the biggest thing my wife and I have lead- it’s exciting, and challenging. Listening to dave talk about staff and budgets and structure has really helped me so far- this book would be greatly appreciated! Sorry about the overseas shipping!! Thankyou!

    I have been actively seeking employment for nearly a year now.  One of the things I’ve learned is that I have to sell the company on how I can bring solutions to certain of their problems in ways that directly or indirectly affect in a positive way their revenue.  One of the areas I’m working on to improve is my skills in leadership.  While I successfully led a start up project for a nonprofit five years ago, I think I could have done better as a leader of my team over the ensuing four years plus.  Based on your review, I believe Dave’s book could help me continue to grow in this area.

  • Chris Bobo

    I would love to have this book because Dave’s simple approaches to leadership and management are easy to understand and implement! I can’t wait to read it! I am a youth pastor in South Atlanta and I know that these leadership principles will be influential in the life of the students I lead!

  • Awoodward

    I am the director of leadership development in my state for a religious denomination. I travel all over the state providing workshops, consultation, and coaching, seeking to develop the leadership base of church leaders in our state. Many church leaders in our state do not have the interest or time to develop their leadership skills. My work is to raise their awareness and provide training that would help them even when they do not know they need it!  I am constantly searching for  resources from which I could glean insights that would strengthen the work of  the church.      

    Dave’s book would be a valuable asset in my toolbox of leadership resources for two reasons. One,  he is so practical and well respected not only nationally but also in my denomination in particular. Many of our churches use his Financial Peace materials in their small group meetings.  Second, his materials are indeed anchored in experience and not theory. Pastors want help from someone they trust, in particular someone with a spiritual perspective and not just a business perspective. Dave’s book would provide both.

    I’d like a copy of this book because I want to start a new tradition in my family.  Almost all of my immediate and extended family ( and there are a lot of us) have lived paycheck to paycheck, content to work until we got Social Security or disability or died first.  I would love to be able to mentor them in taking control of their lives back from creditors.  I would also like to start my own business.  As a ISTP, it is hard for me to function in a work environment.  Being able to create my own culture would allow me to excel in my own way.  I think this book would help me get there with minimal mistakes.

    After 30+ years in hotel management, I decided to leave. The short of it, “People join companies. They leave bosses.” Now, on my own, I am launching into the speaking profession.

    My wife and I need this book!  My wife recently had to close her private personal training studio.  Our business serviced to 3 different customers. 
    1.) wife’s one-on-one personal training clients
    2.) small group fitness/boot camps and
    3.) personal trainer’s looking for somewhere to train their clients would rent space from us on a month to month basis.

    Well the recession; can I use the “R” word on this site, has been devastating on the health club business.  According to the IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association) 20% of all health clubs closed in the last year.  I
    wonder how many small clubs closed, probably closer to 30-40%!  She lost 6 full time trainers who were renting space from her and was left with 2 part time trainers in the end.  The economy hurt us,  I don’t know about how it is in other
    parts of the country, but here in Chicago, none of the big chains
    health clubs closed, in fact many of them opened new locations!  We are
    licking our wounds and planning how we can re-open in a smaller location with much lower overhead.  Thankfully our lease was up, she still trains her clients at their homes and runs a boot camp at the local park.  We need help on how to move forward.

I read, work, and study hard. And I’m eager to learn from those who have gone before me.I have learned from Dave Ramsey (personal finances mainly),and I desire more so I could excel in business and worship God in my work. I do believe this book will teach me things I otherwise would take years to learn. My promise is, I will not read it and put it away hastily, but will put hard thought into the content and use it to succeed. 
    Bless you sir!

    I attended a Simulcast for EntreLeadership and was excited when Dave mentioned he was working on this book.

    I have started a mental health private practice and could use as much encouragement and advice as possible.  I also lead a small team of Life Encouragers at my church and I want to be a blessing to them as this team works with those who are going through a difficult season in life.I also work for a company that throws their managers into a role they are not always equipped for.  I would like to help my Program Director become a better equipped leader (or help her realize “she is on the wrong bus” as Dave says) with Ramsey’s advice so that she can succeed as a leader as well.

    Thank you for any consideration!

However, to try and supplement our income, my wife and I opened a self-serve frozen yogurt franchise stroe called Froyoz (on Twitter – @FroyozMB and on Facebook – Froyoz Myrtle Beach). We have four children all under 9 years old. Expenses will rise and we need this business to work. I’d love to learn from Dave about business principles that I haven’t encountered in ministry.

  • http://twitter.com/RickRouth RickRouth

    This is exciting!  I am currently running my own business, and have been struggling for the last year and a half.  I started my business to help fill a need, then the need began to dwindle.  Since then I have been learning completely new skills, found my purpose in life, registered to go back to school (now taking full-time school along with all of the rest of this), and picked up a bunch of odd-jobs to make ends meet.  My wife and I started FPU a little over a year ago, right as we were about to drop from $50k/yr to ~$15k/yr.  In the meantime we’ve paid off or gotten rid of (sold the car!) OVER $20,000 in debt.  In total, since we met, we’ve gone from $54,000 down to the last student loan which still has $4,000 on it.  Dave’s budgeting advice and motivation was absolutely instrumental in keeping our chins up and driving through this stage of our life!  So I’m very excited about this new book with relation to what I do (see: not my job).
    My wife and I were asked to begin teaching a Sunday School class for 7th-8th graders almost 2 years ago.  Through the process of learning how to teach and learning how much we love our kids, I figured out that teaching is what I’m supposed to be doing with my life.  I was always the kid looking to bypass the teacher, to skirt the rules (not outright break them, mind you), and I ALWAYS knew I could NEVER be a teacher.  Deep down I think I really knew that I was supposed to be.  I LOVE helping my kids learn new things!  A couple months ago we even took one of my Sunday School students and drove him around to the various towns in our area to show him what sorts of businesses exist in different socioeconomic areas.  This resulted in him understanding the fact that all of his stuff from Rent-A-Center needed to go back!  He then came to be a couple weeks later and said, “I was able to get new shoes for football because I gave back my playstation!  You were right!”  My wife and I always try to show our kids that being God’s creation is incompatible with being normal, and Dave’s illustrations are great for this a lot of the time.
    I hope you’ll consider me for the book giveaway, but if not I have a feeling we’ll be buying a copy eventually (after the student loan is gone).  If I am chosen, you can trust that we will be spreading the information, not sitting on it!

    I have recently been voted as the Chair of the Regional Leadership Council for the American Lung Association of the Midland States.  In this role, I plan to lead the group to find ways to support the ALA mission through Advocacy, Fundraising, and Awareness.  I feel that the insights that Dave Ramsey has to offer partnered with the years of leadership I have in the business world will guide me to be successful in my new role and lead the group to stellar results.

    This book sounds like a great read, and one that would be helpful for anyone in any stage of life. Dave Ramsey knows what he is talking about. 

  • Robby Larson

    As a young professional who is laying the ground work for my career trajectory, Dave’s insights will be invaluable to establishing a firm foundation from which to grow. Based on my interaction with Dave’s other texts, I appreciate his no-nonsense approach to taking on a project or task. He is straightforward. His wisdom is applicable, and it is actionable.

    I am especially interested in the way that Dave shapes this concept into the broader picture of living on mission.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest, Michael!

    My employer is a young, female small business owner who opened her own physical therapy practice debt free–largely in part due to Dave’s wisdom and teaching about financial responsibility. She was a student of his EntreLeadership course a few years back, and is one of the strongest Ramsey advocates I know. I have watched his principles contribute to her success, and as a result, have been a student of his leadership as well. I’d love to read EntreLeadership to keep up with the latest of Dave’s teaching, as I know my boss will do the same. As her marketing director, it’s likely fitting that I apply the principles of this new book to our business and the direction we’re heading. I want to be on board with the leadership that’s in front of me, and to help lead the rest of our company in the same way! Thanks, Michael, for your review/summary of the book. It’s gained my interest quickly!

    Dave obviously knows what he is doing.  He has built a huge business and has learned to lead people well.  If his wisdom can set people free financially…as a pastor…I want to learn anything that might help me to set people free spiritually.  I would love a copy of this book.

  • Dthomas

    My wife & I can apply the knowledge we gain from he book to her photography business. I can then take what we learn & share it with the college & student small groups as we are challenging them to use their gifts to make a difference. To begin things that matter.

    Hi Michael,I’m a pastor’s wife and stay-at-home mom of four. For several years now, we have been living paycheck to paycheck while simultaneously sinking deeper into debt. In 2008 I joined a network marketing company, and so began a journey of education. At first I just wanted to make a little extra money each month to help pay the bills. As time went on though, I realized (slowly), that I needed to develop some skills. I’ve been reading everything I can get my hands on that might help me improve how I build relationships with people, learn how to set goals and manage my time, develop self discipline and become an influential communicator. I would love to learn from Dave how I can live my dream of being debt-free, financially independent and having a successful home business. Thanks for the opportunity to learn from Dave by giving away this book!

    Loving Entreleadership! Real info, real action. Real good!

  • Stefan Hall

    As a missionary serving Africa, I need to continue to learn how to develop multiple streams of income and learn to navigate trans-cultural environments.

  • Mike Swaney

    Why did the chicken cross the road?  So he wouldn’t get run over by Dave’s big ol’ bus!!

    Thanks for this fantastic opportunity Michael – looking forward to the read!

  • Meghan Jones

    I want a copy of EntreLeadership because as a 23 year-old I have a passion to see our generation “get it” when it comes to leadership, business, and stewardship. I believe that Dave Ramsey is a voice not only to the Christian culture, but also the secular one – and that is an aspiration we all should have. I would love to read his latest book and continue to pass on his wealth of knowledge to our generation and generations to come!

  • Mike

    Can not wait to get my hands on this book. If it is anything like other Dave Ramsey books, it will provide great information for everyone no matter your role in any organization.

  • Serge Piguet

    There is not only a need in America, but in Switzerland too… I wish to receive this book to learn and motivate me to make the first step to create and stard my business.

    We love Dave! We are living overseas at the moment, so my husband is always streamlining in his radio show. I don’t want this book for me. I’d like it to give to my husband, who is just as Dave described, and EntreLeader. He quite his job of working as an overseas school principal to start a non-profit organization. He is also working on starting a small company on the side. He would love to have this book, I know! 
    Thanks Mr. Hyatt for your generosity!

  • Tom Farr (@farrtom)

    I’ve been in the midst of a difficult job change, and I’ve really wanted to read Dave’s new book to learn from his insights on how to financially support my wife and 3 children through entrepreneurship, as well as get to a financial position someday to help other people who are going through hard times.

  • Eduardo Petrecca

    I think that Dave experience and challenging speaking is priceless. I havent see in my country leaders like him in such a crusade against debt and in pro of the financial wellbeing of people. From Buenos Aires writing to you. God bless you.

    I’m a big Dave fan…but surely he has enough sense to wear his seatbelt when he drives that ol’ car. :)

  • Larry Williams

    I went to Daves EntreLeadership One day Simulcast and have really took the information in and began to implement some of the principles into our youth ministry. I am a youth pastor from Texas and a great amount of our churches business men are reading this book. I am so excited to see what God does. Thanks for writing the post. God bless you and yours.

    I received my free copy of EntreLeadership in the mail, and I am loving it! Thank you Mr. Hyatt. I haven’t done a full review on the book yet, but the first chapter moved me, so I blogged about it:)

    My wife and I discover Dave Ramsey’s plan several years ago.  It changed our lives and the lives of our family.  Dave is awesome.  Easy to follow a man of faith.

  • Bob Green

    I would like to learn new ways of doing business and put in place the old well sought out ways of doing business as a Christian business man.

    • http://www.heartyourchurch.com/ Jason Stambaugh

      This book is a great start. Dave grounds his teachings in the scriptures (for the most part). The book is also incredibly practical. Not a lot of theory…

  • PinUpBOOtique

    I’ve been running my own business now for 37 years and have done quite well….now my kids want to work for me and i have to lay some ground rules down.  I need guidance and to grow the businss bigger and expand in to malls selling vintage inspired clothing and opening up a web site.  I also open up Halloween BOOtiques seasonally and I don’t always have control over the entire operation at every moment…need lots of guidance from some one who knows…  

  • Kamilah

    I would like to read Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership because as your sup-headings state -it coaches, contains, and covers. I believe Mr. Ramsey’s no non-sense, practical approach is a great foundation for any type of leadership. I could learn how to start a business from almost any book in the library but Mr. Ramsey’s ways are proven in the real world.

    I’m sorry, but I think Dave’s approach is just so much hogwash Christian gobbledygook. It’s overly simple, overly ideological and ultimately preachy. It’s hard to separate the advice from the ringing endorsements he constantly trades with the people whose hands are obviously in each other’s pockets as well as his own.
