Freedom To Succeed
Do books on business success, leadership, and principles all start to sound alike? Not this one.
Through his own business experience, Dave developed a unique process, the Business Diamond Assessment™, which he generously includes in this book. Nowhere else can readers learn “The Diamond Mindset” that he and his clients have proven priceless, time after time. Business owners will learn the wrong thing to be in love with, and the right thing. Kaufman believes this will then allow you to focus on your values, nurture your family, and be more fulfilled, especially in your spiritual life. The information in this book and, most importantly, how to apply it, will give you a competitive edge and more Freedom to Succeed.
In "Seeds" Dave relates 31 examples (parables) from growing up on the farm to teach entrepreneurial lessons. Each “lesson” reveals proven success principles for your life through stories, illustrations, and examples drawn from everyday experiences. Kauffman grew up on a large Amish-Mennonite farm and his use of vivid imagery and real-life examples makes this book not only memorable but entertaining. His work as a consultant to entrepreneurs, along with his experience owning and operating various companies allows him to infuse each farm metaphor with practical advice for business owners.
If you are open to not only learning, but also will follow Kauffman’s “Coaching Points” and make tough choices and changes, this book will enable you to achieve your most challenging goals for business growth and success.
