Please Vote – Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership Scholarship

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 24, 2010

Hey Friends,

Steve has entered us into Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership Scholarship Contest!

When I first started out on this $5 Dinners adventure, I had absolutely no clue that I would soon be a website entrepreneur.  I had not a clue what opportunities would come my way.  I only dreamt that the site would lead to a double cookbook deal. I didn’t even know what a brand consultant was…or what Twitter was!

Now, I find myself swimming through the unknown waters of the accidental entrepreneur!  And while I have picked up a few important tools along the way, I’d love nothing more to learn from the best of the best…Dave Ramsey!  We have submitted our story into the Scholarship Contest and hope to win a trip to Dave’s next EntreLeadership week…in Cancun, Mexico!  Of course, it would be lovely to visit Cancun…but I’d want to do this if Dave were holding the session in a cave!!!

So would you please take 3.4 seconds out of your super busy day and vote for us?! (We have a lotta catching up to do, so please vote!)

We would be so grateful for this opportunity!!!

-Steve and Erin

I have listened to Dave Ramsey for quite some time, and I own a small business. That particular class is really expensive, and I get that because he has to make money.

For the “basics” of small business, which I know are really hard, you need an accountant and someone who has actually run a business. It’s really hard to get on your feet, and it feels like there is so much going on at once. A few hours in Cancun isn’t going to fix that.

His little business quirks you can pick up from just listening to him. Don’t go in debt. Have a no-gossip rule. Put everyone on commission. No corporate credit cards. It’s just not that hard, and for many businesses this ideology is impossible or just doesn’t make sense.

I hope you win, but you’ll be just fine if you don’t, and you should think long and hard about whether the paid version would be worth it.
