One of America's most trusted financial advisers, Dave Ramsey, is once again bringing his expertise to Oklahoma City for an EntreLeadership 1-Day seminar.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 19, Ramsey will lead the seminar which is aimed at giving business owners hope and useful skills for running their business with integrity, best practices for setting goals, managing time and other business-related topics. The seminar is based on Ramsey's best seller, “EntreLeadership.”
“There have been a lot of extremely talented people forced out into the job market. This is a great time for those people to take their dream, their passion, and make it into a business,” Ramsey said in a 2011 interview with The Oklahoman. “A lot of very successful businesses began during a down economy. I think this is a great time to be an entrepreneur — an EntreLeader.”
In the book, Ramsey answers common business questions such as how to invest in your team, how to delegate so you can grow your company and how to find the perfect hire or fire employees.
Along with Ramsey, speakers Jon Acuff and Chris Hogan will share their experiences in business growth, and how to stay motivated in the ups and downs of owning or running a small business.
“I'll be walking people through the five stages of a successful life and a successful business,” Acuff said.
The five steps are learning, editing, mastering, harvesting and guiding.
In short, first you must learn what it is you're interested in by trying many different things. Next, you edit those interests into a few and focus on mastering those skills — Acuff recommends following Malcolm Gladwell's “10,000-Hour Rule,” from his book “Outliers.” Gladwell claims that greatness requires an enormous investment of time toward mastery.
Once you've mastered your skills, you'll harvest the fruits of the work you've done, then guide others down their own paths to success, Acuff said.
“Dave Ramsey always tells me that inspiration without instruction is useless,” Acuff said.
At EntreLeadership, Ramsey, Acuff and Hogan will deliver practical instruction on things to do immediately to improve your business, finances and life.
Different businesses require different personalities. The most important thing for the business owner is to have a passion for what they are doing.”
