EntreLeadership (giveaway!)

This giveaway has now ended. Check back soon for the results!

This past spring, I attended a satellite feed in Austin of Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership one-day seminar. I left feeling jazzed about my work, stoked about the ideas percolating in my head, and motivated to get long-awaited ideas finally moving.

You may not agree with everything Dave says about money, but you’ve got to admit—he’s one heck of an entrepreneur. He built something major out of negative personal circumstances, and his business is growing like wildfire. He’s also an amazing leader, and knows how to motivate, encourage, and serve well.

Today, his new book of the same name releases. EntreLeadership is for anyone working, whether you’re employed by a Fortune 500 company or you’re setting up a cottage industry from your dining room table.

We’ve talked a lot on Simple Mom about working from home. If this is even an inkling of an interest for you, then you’ll need this book. EntreLeadership is his seminar on business leadership in book form.

Want to win one? Dave is giving 10 Simple Mom readers a copy of his new book!

  1. I would LOVE to win this book! I am hoping to get my blog up and running and I couldn’t think of a better way to get me motivated than to read his book! Thank you 🙂

  2. I’ve recently started a photography business and the business side of things is not my strong suit. It looks like this book would be so helpful in making sure I’m doing the background things correctly!

  3. I would love to win this book as well. I’m just getting started on the road to financial freedom and working on my business and this book could be instrumental.

  4. I’d love to win this. I just started my photography biz and am gobbling up info like this.

  5. I would love to get a copy of this book for three reasons:
    1) last month my maternity leave ended and it breaks my heart to leave my precious baby girl at the day-care. I want to re-invent my career but I need some help there. I do not know where to start and I am lost.
    2) this book won’t be available in Europe before some time (I assume)
    3) it would make my day ;o)

  6. Phronsie Howell says:

    I’d love to start a photography business eventually and I love Dave Ramsey. This would be a great win!

  7. We are Dave fans from across the ocean! My husband is working on starting a nonprofit and I’m working on writing. This book sounds like one we need to be reading now!

  8. Why I want this book: My husband is an entrepreneur at heart – but to jump from a comfortable career position to an unknown world can be intimidating – especially when you have a bunch of little mouths. I know it’s who he is, and I know he can succeed – I want him to know that I’m ready to support him 100% – and giving this to him as a small “I know you can do it” gift would be one way to show my confidence and support.

    what a fun giveaway, thanks so much! (p.s. I recently discovered simplemom and I am a big fan!)

  9. This book would be so beneficial to my entire family. My husband has an at-home business, I am considering getting into publishing, and our 13-year old daughter, who is proficient in calligraphy, is considering starting a business on the side to earn more money! Thanks for the opportunity to win EntreLeadership!

  10. I would love so much to be able to stay at home with my boys and earn a living doing something I love. I’ve been dreaming of starting a business selling things I make but I keep shying away from it because the business part seems so daunting. Maybe this book will give me the courage I need.

  11. It would be my first taste of Dave Ramsey, but I’ve heard a lot of good things!

  12. World_Runner says:

    I would love to win this book. We are wanting to make the giant leap from corporate America back to the small town we grew up in and figuring out how to have the leadership to make it successful for our family is key.

  13. This book looks awesome! Dave’s other book was great too. Me and my partner are considering starting our own travel photography business so that we’re able to move around overseas more, so this would be awesome to give us a good business insight into how to go about things! Goodluck everyone!

  14. I love to read books and usually I found it very interesting to read books about dealing with other people. Learning new things from reading is very exciting and truly worth of your time.

  15. Would love to win a copy, been starting up my jewellery business for a year now, still not really started, need some help!

  16. Up until Friday I was working from home trying to find clients for my freelance translation job and relying on my husband’s salary. Then I got the call. “Honey, they fired me”.

    The plan is to both work from home translating, but for that we really need a plan (I haven’t had much success setting up business on my own). So… If we don’t win this we’ll probably have to set aside some of his unemployment benefits to buy a copy anyway!

  17. I usually read your blog on my phone through my reader so comments are left off. I love your blog and am a new mom of 28 days in less than 30 minutes. I would love to win this book for my husband as we are trying to figure out how he can stay home with the baby. I’m a huge Dave Ramsey fan – thanks to him we are debt free except the house and that is 1/8 of our current take home so we are really knocking that down too. Thanks for all your great writing and inspiration!

  18. I have been a fan of Dave Ramsey for a long time. For years now I find myself telling my family – “Well Dave says….” ! I’m sure the book is full of great advice that I can put to use.

  19. I love Dave Ramsey!

  20. Would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  21. I would love to win this book. I am getting ready to start my own blog and the information in this book would really come in handy.

  22. I’d like to win the book, because I never thought of myself as an entrepreneur, but I’m becoming more of one. I am moving in the direction of several part time jobs, instead of one full-time one.

  23. I agree, Dave is a very motivational speaker! I think I’d enjoy this book as I’m just starting to think about blogging for profit and pursuing other work-from-home ideas. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  24. I would love to win this book because in June I left my desk job to pursue my (then) part-time side gig of working with children with Autism. It is now my only source of income and I love it… although it can be very overwhelming!

  25. I would love this book! Dave is very motivational! I have many ideas spinning in my brain and I think this book could help put them in drive! Thanks for the opportunity!

  26. i dlike to win this book because his ideas and writing is not only essentail to my profession, but i can also treat myself right and organize right with his motivation!

    shortly, im an hr manager who needs to right resource her private life!! =)

  27. I’m relaunching my old blog and starting a new one in 2012. I could use this book.

  31. I’d love to win a copy of this book! I have his Total Money Makeover, and was most impressed by his commonsense approach. I’ve run my own business from home for ten years, but now the children are older and a little more independent, it’s time for a business makeover. And besides, it’s my birthday on Thursday 🙂 I hope it doesn’t matter that I’m in Australia …

  32. I’d love to win this book. I am trying to stay at home as we prepare for our first child. While we can get by on my husband’s salary, we have trouble when we need to fix the car, give a little to charity, or even buy a much needed pair of running shoes. We both have good skills to make our own business, but I think a little direction would help.

  33. I have had a ton of ideas running around my head, but suffer from analysis paralysis. I would love to read this book as a first step towards taking the leap.

  34. I would also love to win. I have my own business but am a little stuck these days. I need a kick in the pants.

  35. really appreciate Dave Ramsey and would love to win one.

Over the next few years I am home with my kids and taking this opportunity to figure out what I want to do as my next career.

Praying for God’s direction and seeking out wise counsel as I make this journey.

  76. Anything Dave Ramsey does is good enough for me!

  77. I have been a huge fan of Dave Ramsey. He has such simple ideas but with such life changing results. I believe our families can be changed by implementing the plans that Dave has outline in his Financial Peace programs. I work from home, but it isn’t the job I would like to be doing.

  84. Stephanie Fleming says:

    I would love to win this book. We have just moved to a new city and I am without a job. But, I’m not sure that I want to do what I’ve always done. I’m looking for inspiration to “reinvent” myself.

I am working on being a stay at home mom with my little girl and I want to have something successful I can do from home to give me a sense of pride in myself, something I can do when more little ones come. I would love to learn from this book and grow myself as well! 🙂 Thank you for having this giveaway!!

  97. Kim Garrett says:
