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’d love to win this book. My dh has been without work for a month and would love to earn money from home but is unsure of how to go about it. This would be a big help for him, and therefore, for me. Thanks for hosting this.

  2. I have an entrepreneurial idea I’m kicking around. I’m don’t know anything about running a business but would love to learn.

  3. I am in the process of starting my own business from home. Dave’s resources have always been helpful in the past. I have no doubt his new book would benefit me. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  4. I would love to read this book & discover opportunities on how to run your own business. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  5. We’re starting to ranch, would love to make it pay some bills and lead eventually to something bigger than we are imagining … some practical advice would be welcome.

  6. Thanks for sharing this resource! I have been inspired to be more intentional about my writing lately. This would be a wonderful resource to spur me on!

  7. I would love to win this book. My husband and I run a business together and need a “business consult” Dave Ramsey sounds perfect. Right before getting to Simple Mom today I was filling out a strengths survey that my husband/business partner are going to use to try to work with our strengths to grow our at home business. That s why I am always interested in how you and Kyle combine work and family as a team. Thanks!

  8. This would provide an excellent opportunity to learn MORE from Dave as I consider starting something from home. I’m a working mom dreaming of doing something at home, and this just might give me the gumption to take that step! My husband and I did the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace class years ago, and it really changed our lives! Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win one of his books! Blessings!

  9. I’m fresh out of grad school and want to start something on my own. I have all the encouragement in the world, but that doesn’t help me figure out where to start!

  10. Sarah Samuelson says:

    I’d love to win this for my husband. He has had a dream of being self employed for a while. Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. Karen Lynne says:

    LOVE DAVE! Have seen him in person, read his books, and follow his podcast. We are DEBT FREE and would love Dave’s ideas on blessing others through our businesses!

  12. Nancy Mosley says:

    I’d love to win this book for several reasons — for my sweet husband who experienced a 2year job loss and has now returned to work for a great company and I want to see him succeed and do well. For my children, whom I homeschool, and are beginning to enter the years of maybe beginning little business ventures (like my 11 year old daughter and her amazing craft business). And also for myself — having a desire to try several things in my life and sometimes not knowing where to begin. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  13. My husband owns his own business and I think this could help us take it to the next level!

  14. I’ve been thinking about starting a small business, but I’m nervous about how ‘out of the box’ it feels. Something like this would be a big help at discerning whether or not it’s the right decision.

  15. I enjoy Dave and would love hearing his advice on business!

  16. This looks like a great book that will motivate me to actually try to start a home business. I’ve always been a Dave Ramsey fan!

  17. Loved Dave’s Entreleadership seminar. I would love to read the book for more motivation.

  18. I would love to win! I’ve been working on my business plan (off and on) for almost 6 months. Trying to create something from nothing is tough enough. Getting people to buy-in to your innovative creation/product is a whole different animal. Would LOVE Dave’s insight!!

  19. I love Dave! A copy of his book would be helpful in my current situation. I’ve recently taken over running an old movie theater and I’m an independent consultant for Paparazzi (selling jewelry and accessories). I have so much to learn and Dave is a great teacher!

  20. Leah Gillette-Fox says:

    I am in the midst of deciding to be at SAHM or continue working. If I stay home, I’d like to start up a little business. I think this would be a great way to start off and also perhaps help me make some tough deicsions!

    Thanks for the opprotunity to win!!

  21. Tish,
    I began reading blogs because I somehow came across your blog months ago. I have since (barely) begun a blog of my own and am VERY interested in doing something with my God-given creative, organizational talents. I believe very strongly that we are to use these gifts. I am in a situation where I have to work and have a good job but it doesn’t feed my soul or allow me to use the special gifts I have been blessed with. My hope/dream is to cultivate them into a business. Many, many thanks for what you do! Kay

  22. Katherine Thorne says:

    I would love to win a copy of this book for two reasons: 1. My husband has been entertaining the idea of creating a nonprofit for under privileged youth in sports/athletics for years and I would love to give him some fuel to encourage and push him along. He is a certified strength coach and has worked for the EPL and NFL, but his passion is to work with kids in need and provide an outreach for Christ. 2. We have a 9 month old boy and I want to look for new opportunities in the work force that would allow me to stay at home more. We are huge Dave Ramsey fans so we would love to read what he has to say.

  23. Lindsey Johnson says:

    I would love to win this book! We love Dave Ramsey! We have coordinated his FPU class for the past 3 years, have gotten out of debt, & are trying our hand at our own home business. This book would be an inspiration to help us out along the way! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  24. Thanks for offering this book! I would love to win this book and give it to my husband as a Christmas gift. We are headed back to China to adopt our second child (special needs) later this year, and we are searching the files to adopt a third child from China in the next 6 months to a year. (She will be “special focus” which is technically speaking multi-special needs.) Thus, we have agreed to buy no Christmas gifts for each other this year, as we are working to “save pennies”. My husband is a major Dave Ramsey fan, and we have been living by his principles of living debt-free—which includes when we adopt internationally. (My husband works TONS, but we know it will be poured into the souls and lives of these current orphans.) Just thought I’d try. God bless you in all you do for all of us. =)

  25. I’d love to give this book to my hubby. He’s always percolating ideas!!!

  26. A dream of mine is to start my own coffee shop. I’d love to win this book!

  27. I would love to have Dave’s book… we are in the process of his 7 Baby Steps, and now that I’m a stay at home mom, I need to increase my tutoring business. Leadership is not a strong point for me- I’m usually a follower. I hope I win!

  28. I would LOVE to win this book. I’m currently about to finish “The Total Money Makeover” written by Dave. I’ve have thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned lots from reading it. My husband is slowly starting his own business and I think Dave’s EntreLeadership book would be a definite benefit to us.

  29. Love your blog and would love to win this book to further my education – as a self employed family, we are always looking for new information.

  30. I’d love to win this book! I need a lesson in how to manage my business on the financial end!

  31. I work as an department head at a university. I have loved following Dave’s EntreLeadership Handle on twitter and have found his advice and wisdom to spill over into my work in the University setting. I would love to read this book for more wisdom to apply in my leadership here!

  32. I would love to win a copy of this book. We are just trying to get back on track and definitely need more encouragement for ways to save money and budget budget budget.

  33. I need this book! I really respect Dave’s wisdom and could really use it as there is a lot going on in my world! I run a graphic design and photography business, homeschool our 8 and 10 year olds and try to keep up with the rest of life, church, family and my sweet husband. 🙂

  34. Thank you for this opportunity! After reading Dave Ramsey’s book on money, we made some big changes in our life, and couldn’t be more happy with where we’re headed. I think this newest book is very exciting, as one of my goals is to work from home. It would be great to be able to follow his advice again and reap the rewards! Thank you.

  35. Laura Miller says:

    I would love to win this book and learn how to take my business to the next level. I value anything Dave has to say.

  36. I would love to hear his wise advice about setting up a cottage industry. I’m a stay at home mom and would love to figure out how to make money out of the things I do out of personal passion already.


  37. I think the book would be great to boost my confidence to really succeed in making a home based business work. Also my husband has his own biz, and I think this could help him take it to another level by boosting the business side that so many entrepreneurs struggle with.

  38. I’ve really been itching to start my own sewing business and REALLY wanting to take that first big jump into small business ownership, this book may just be what I need to give myself that extra push :). Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. I would LOVE to win this book. I’m finishing “The Total Money Makeover” written by Dave right now. I’ve learned so many amazing things from reading this book. I’m sure that I will broaden my scopes even more from reading “EntreLeadership” as well.

    I would love for my husband and I to start our own business–we just need a shove. 🙂

  47. Joanna LaForte Biava says:

    My husband and I would LOVE to own this book. We have 3 small businesses we’re trying to build to support our growing family (baby #3 is due in the next 2-3 weeks!) Even if we don’t win a copy, I’ll be looking to get this book ASAP. 🙂

  48. Hi! My husband just landed a new job that is going to require a move to the East coast. As we are very excited and blessed with this, we will have to muster all of the organizing and communication skills that we have to keep on top of this new opportunity. My husband has already asked me to be his “secretary”, as I will be taking care of paper work and expense reports for him, while he manages a large ($) sales territory. I am nervous about this and want to do a great job for him…so that we can BOTH be proud of what we accomplish…TOGETHER! All of this…while I homeschool our 3 beautiful children. I could definitely use Dave’s help! Thanks!

  49. Emily Woodall says:

    I would love to read Dave’s new book! I have a vision of starting a company, but I am so overwhelmed here in the beginning stages of it! This couldn’t come at a better time for me! =-) Thanks so much!

  50. I would really love to win this book! I am a SAHM, and am trying to put together ideas of how to help financially while still staying home. I think this would be a great motivator, as well as an all around good source for a business plan! Thanks for the opportunity!

My husband and I opened our own company that he works at full-time 7 days a week and I am working on an e-book as well for this business.

I’ve tried to follow his recommendations in running my business as a BeautiControl consultant. But I’d like to find out what he has to say about leadership.
