Default Book Recommendation for business

I've read a couple of his books and recently listened to Dave Ramsey's audio book "ENTRELEADERSHIP". I recommend all you business owners read it or listen to the audio CD while traveling to the job sight. Good material.

He also has a 3 hour radio show on week days that I like listening to while working.

He has a good website too.

My wife was watching some Tony Robbins thing on Netflix about a month ago. I think it was Netflix. Anyhoo, I was really surprised at the language he was using! F bombing every fourth word and I'm not exaggerating. Guy looked like he was on roids too. I've watched some of his lengthy paid advertisements for his books/videos/etc. in the past and never heard one nasty word out of him. Seriously made the guy look pretty unprofessional.

Not that I'm a saint or a prude in any way whatsoever. I probably swear more throughout the day than most, but I've just never seen a 'life coach' doing it while talking in front of several thousand people.

It was kind of weird.

You won't hear that from Dave Ramsey. He is a class act. I owe him so much just from listening to him on the radio. You can get his book for under $20 bucks off his website Daveramsey.com

Amen, I thought the very same thing, I have not watched the whole yet because I get so turned off by it. I have been a fan of his for 20 years until I saw this video on netflix
