Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me)
“Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership speaks right to the heart of business leaders, showing not just the ‘how tos,’ but also the ‘why tos’ that apply to any sized business, from a garage-based startup to a powerhouse market leader. And by the way, I’m the biggest Dave Ramsey acolyte ever!” —Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan (Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan)
“Entrepreneurs are needed in America now more than ever—but there’s a big difference between starting a company and leading one. And there’s an even bigger difference between a company that’s valuable and one that has values. But Dave has figured out the recipe to being both things at once, and his lessons are invaluable.” —Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author (Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author)
“Dave Ramsey has taken commonsense leadership principles and made them uncommonly practical, useful, and life changing. His straightforward and plain-talk approach is refreshing. Even more admirable is that his advice is not a bunch of leadership fru-fru fluff, but it's solid and substantive.” —Mike Huckabee, former governor, FOX News host (Mike Huckabee, former governor, FOX News host)

As she's not keen in English I had to read it first and convey the lessons to her later. But I was the one who got my eyes opening because of the book.
As usual, the strength of Dave Ramsay is his great writing style. You feel like he was talking to you heart to heart, one on one. No high vocabulary, no non-sense. But what astonishes me so much is his spiritual insight on business. I never read or encounter any business mentors who teach these spiritual insights before.
1. "Start with the dream, end with the goal"
Dreams are good but in the end your goal must be very clear since day 1. That's when dreams become visions.
2. "Setting CORE GOAL of your business"
CORE means the values inside you. What you truly want your business to accomplish. For example my friend's business is lingerie. She needs to find her business core goal, such as, "self-love" or "make women feel beautiful and worthy".
Dave's core goal is not only giving lessons on debt and entrepreneurship to people but give them HOPE. Hope is Dave's company's core goal and when the book sellers deliver his books to people they deliver "hope".
3. "Hire people with the SAME VALUES as yours"
My friend still struggles with this lesson. She felt she was unlucky to have bad employees around her. (Which Dave insists there's no such thing. Everything comes from the head, US, the leaders.)
4. "Set your business' mission statement which aligns with your faith (either religious or personal faith).
This hits me the most because it's not what I expect to hear. (Though I'm a Buddhist I understand what Dave means by that.)
Dave gave a very good example of how he used the bible as his business' inspiration.
Another example that hits me emotionally, the annual party Dave arranged for his "team members" and their families. His son was with him on that day also. As a hired director of companies and in my own business I fired people a lot. I mean "a lot". The party story that Dave wrote about 97 young kids running around playing games with their dads and moms and with another kids of another team members, he told his son about the consequences of leaders. If Dave screwed up at his job or made mistakes they would effect those young kids too because Dave's mistakes mean the kids' dads and moms could lose their jobs.
Wow, that was the revelation for me and it changed my perspective forever.
If I hadn't read this book last year, there's no way I would be where I am today. I wouldn't have had a plan, been able to motivate employees, or handle the growth we experienced. I even had one of my employees read certain chapters of this book throughout the year to get us on the same page and help him grow in his leadership capabilities. I'm planning to read it again this year in order to try to take my business to the next level again. I compiled in the back a list of other books that he cited in the book as I read - in itself it is a great bibliography for business and leadership. And be sure not to miss the bonus chapters online, they're just as good as the rest of the book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who owns a business or is in management to any degree.
