Each month, or so, we like to choose a book to read together as a team. Often the titles surround things like social media, internet technology, and/or business. This month, we’ve decide to snuggle up to the Todaymade fire with Dave Ramsey’s latest book Entre Leadership.
From the Amazon.com description:
EntreLeadership provides the practical, step-by-step guidance to grow your business where you want it to go.
Seems pretty straight forward (and awesome!) doesn’t it?
We have both been admirers of Dave’s work in personal finances for several years, and we are excited to see what he has to say about running a success business.
As a team, continually reading and learning from the worlds greatest minds has been an extremely rewarding experience. We have already covered books like UnMarketing, The Thank You Economy, Delivering Happiness, or some of the older classics like Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. Not only do these books read well, but the time spend discussing and building off the ideas they outline has been extremely valuable to the Todaymade brand.
Books like these are really the catalyst for much of the thinking and writing that happens on this blog every day. There is something about reading, and continually learning, that seriously aids the development of new ideas and creative thinking. Sometimes you just need something to get the wheels turning.
One of the things that I am continually interested in is the leaders of great companies. What has made them great, and what is it that they do that inspires their customers, and their employees? Many of us are thinking this, especially after the passing of Steve Jobs. What really makes customers line up for hours outside of the Apple store after a new product is released?
I think that Dave Ramsey is another one of those amazing leaders and business minds that we can all learn from. His customers and employees rave about his products, his advice, and his company. There is certainly something to be said for that.
We both excited to see what we can learn from Entre Leadership. Have you read it? What are you reading to keep your thinking sharp?
