unity and loyalty
Building a unified and loyal organization is the key to overcoming growing pains.
Unfortunately, this is also one of the most unknown, misunderstood and missing elements.
compensation—show me the money!
Dave says, “people will ultimately only do what you pay them to do, so pay them in a way that
gets them excited about creating a profit!” he’ll give great tips for doing this as he explains
his own company’s compensation models.
team math—hiring and recruiting
Hiring champion team members is the key to the growth of any healthy organization. Many hires
are made out of desperation, which leads to hiring the wrong people. Dave shows you how to
avoid this common problem through a careful, slow and thorough hiring process.
team math—Firing and confrontation
No one enjoys the firing process or even reprimanding a person. However, when team members fail,
it takes wisdom and mature leadership to know when and how to do what is best for the company
and the individual.

as explained in Michael gerber’s book, The E-Myth, effective leaders spend more time working on their
business and less time working in it. To lead effectively, Dave explains, you have to master delegation.

Rewarding someone for a job well done is one of the most gratifying parts of leading a team.
Dave will explain how he rallies the troops in weekly staff meetings, and he’ll give you some
cool tips on how to recognize your team members in unique, meaningful ways.
accounting and Financial peace for the Entreleader
Dave has taught millions of people how to achieve financial peace in their personal lives, and he uses these
same biblical principles to run his business. There are, of course, many more variables in business than in a
personal budget. while the principles don’t change, the processes might.

by our past attendees. spouses are encouraged to participate in this as well.
the art of outsourcing: dealing with Vendors (and sub-contractors)
Even if these people are not on your payroll, they still have a direct bearing on how well your
organization is represented. Dave will show you vital best practices for working with these resources.
You don’t have to be an attorney to run a business, but having some basic understanding of contract
negotiation will give you an advantage in protecting your organization. Dave teaches the basics, as
well as tips for saving money and securing valuable options in your contracts.

Mark Twain once said, “supposing is good, but finding out is better.” being a business leader
is often a lonely journey filled with lots of supposing and not enough finding out.
i have a tremendous amount of pride in the fact that our EntreLeadership Master series
experience is not based on any suppositions. The tools and information presented at this event
are rooted in biblical truth and a process that has been refined through Dave Ramsey’s personal
experience in leadership for over twenty years.
Learning from a practitioner is far different than learning from someone with a theory. Dave has
fought in the same trenches that you are in, and he has learned what it takes to win with people,
time and money. when Dave takes the time to teach and mentor me i know that what he’s telling
me is going to work. not because he has magic formulas, but because he’s been there and can
speak first-hand into my life. The same is true for dozens of leaders on our team and hundreds
of small business owners across the country who have had the opportunity to participate in the
EntreLeadership Master series experience.
If you desire to take the lid off of your business, then I invite you to join us at the beautiful
Paradisus Resort in The Cancún Riviera in November, 2009. Come learn from Dave Ramsey
while enjoying the vacation of a lifetime with your spouse or your team!
we are here to help. if you have questions, please feel free to contact me and i will be happy
to help you determine if the EntreLeadership Master series Event is right for you.
