Last summer, my wife and I made a big decision.
After six years in Atlanta and 12 years in the same industry, we decided to move to Nashville. Why?
Because Dave Ramsey asked me to join his team.
As a family we’d gone through his book “Total Money Makeover” years before we ever heard him on the radio. In addition to changing the way we looked at finances, the book also helped us radically change the way we communicate as a couple.
But it’s one thing to love somebody’s book and it’s a completely different thing to leave everything you know, quit your job and work alongside them full time.
Why did we do it?
I go into that in detail in Quitter, but the simple answer is that I wanted to be a leader.
Not a leader who leads on stage but not at home. That’s not a leader that’s an actor.
Not a leader who cares more about ego than they do about change.
Not a leader who speaks about truth but doesn’t really live it out.
I wanted to be an honest, passionate, generous leader.
I had a suspicion that Dave Ramsey was that kind of leader and could help me become one too.
13 months later, my wife and I still feel we made a great decision. This last year has been like getting an MBA in leadership. As an author, speaker and leader I’ve been stretched in more ways than I could have fathomed possible.
That’s why I’m honestly excited about Dave’s new book, EntreLeadership. This is Dave sharing everything he’s learned in the last 20 years about growing a business. From time management to mission statements and everything in between, this book is 300 pages of real world wisdom. And my favorite part is these aren’t just theories or ideas Dave is sharing, these are the truths our team lives day in and day out.
