    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Morin | 2/20/2014

      " Good practical advice from a master who has been there and thought things through. Some of it is pretty basic stuff, but great to get Dave's take on it all. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya Kistner | 2/20/2014

      " I loved it!! I have listened to the audiobook multiple times and I am about 1/2 through the written book - now to just get myself to follow through with the advice. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler | 2/16/2014

      " Anyone that ever has thought about starting a business- or even an aspiring church planter- needs to read this book. Simple, practical, and helpful. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shon Hyneman | 2/13/2014

      " A must read if starting your own business. I learned A LOT from this book! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett Spiva | 2/1/2014

      " Do you know why must companies aren't loyal to their company and leadership? Because their company and leadership aren't loyal to them. This statement is so true because I've worked for a company and CEO that once used all the principles talked about in this book. Now it's totally the opposite and I couldn't be more disgusted with it. Dave's book is great for anyone wanting to start a business to a manager wanting to improve his teams performance to a current CEO looking for advice. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/31/2014

      " loved this. Dave is a great guy with a great approach. Everyone who handles money or leads people should pick this up for sure "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dona | 1/30/2014

      " This was a great reinforcement for me. Many of my mgmt. philosophies are right in line with Mr. Ramsey's. Felt good to read that I'm on the right track.( "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denese Milton | 1/19/2014

      " Concepts that are very sound no matter what type of business you have. The constant emphasis on passion and vision were refreshing. Lots of emphasis on making sure that those around you not only understand the vision but that they are infused by it also. I would recommend this book to anyone starting a business or trying to revive an existing business. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Troy Beans | 1/16/2014

      " For anyone who is running a business or would like to start a business this book is for you. If every business was run like Dave Ramsey runs his we would live in a very different world! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Wyndham | 1/3/2014

      " A "must read" for every leader and I would also say parent. There are some good analogies between leading your children in the right direction with leading a team. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. L. Zenor | 1/2/2014

      " Very interesting and challenging book. It makes me want to work for a company like Ramsey's, or better yet to lead my own like his. :) "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie Snider | 12/29/2013

      " This was a fun read. I picked it up in order to be a better manager at work. I got some good ideas. It's definitely written for a business owner, but I think managers can benefit, too. It's very straight forward and practical. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Lundgren | 12/10/2013

      " Loved all the Dave Ramsey books but this one was focused on small business management and leadership. Even if your not in one of those positions the ideas relate to your everyday life as well. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 1/8/2012

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Brady | 11/4/2011

      " Great book about how to staff and operate your business. Dave is very practical though many people will find his advice nonconventional. I would recommend it to anyone who owns a business our is in a managerial role. "

      In general a good book to have it in the shelf "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlane | 4/13/2009

      "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 1/25/2009
