When Eric and Brady were serving in Afghanistan, I came upon Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover book. It was the easiest money management advice I had ever read. He ran a special deal.... 10 books for $100. So I bought ten and gave them to all for Christmas 2010.....even Logan, Laramy, and Ayden who were still living in my house. Well, little did I know they would absolutely run with the knowledge they gained. They ran with it faster than Eric and I did! Brady, Brenden, and Sarah were running their own finances by then and put all they learned to work for them. When it came time to start the business, they turned to Dave Ramsey's business models and Entreleadership advice. It is the main place we turn to for business advice. And we are proud to run our business debt free!
Last Fall, we were fortunate to have Dave Ramsey's 1-Day Entreleadership course come to Kansas City. It was incredibly inspiring and gave us so much to think about and incorporate into our business model.
- Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you especially in areas where your knowledge and experience is limited.
- Read books, blogs, etc. of people that have done it before you successfully. Always be open to learning something new.
- Start with what you have. Work your hardest to do it debt free and save your cash to continually upgrade your business.
- Enjoy the process and the growing pains and don't forget to have fun!
