Why be an entrepreneur when you can be an EntreLeader?
Dave Ramsey has been brave enough to ask this question: Who is more important in a business, an entrepreneur or a leader?
And after years and years of analyzing who truly is more beneficial in a business environment, only one answer came to mind: the EntreLeader; a new breed that Dave Ramsey holds to be the most important type of person that can come into a new business situation. The EntreLeader brings the drive and motivation of an entrepreneur and the strength and vision of a leader, all rolled into one.
But how do you find EntreLeaders? And even more importantly, how can you develop into one yourself?
Dave Ramsey has found a way. He started out by pouring himself into his top three guys, but he quickly realized the information needed to be passed down to the whole team. So he started holding classes once a week for all current and future leadership. As he taught the sessions each week, more and more outside visitors began sitting in. When the guests outnumbered the team members, Dave realized that the world outside his company was hungry for a new way to do business! That’s when the EntreLeadership workshop was born.
