1 Dan Miller
I can’t think of a more instrumental person that helped get me to where I am now in my career than Dan Miller. His passionate belief that we can all live a prosperous life and do it by doing what we love has been a well planted seed in my heart since the first time I listened to his podcast about 12 years ago.
Dan’s podcasts answer questions from listeners who are struggling with where they are in life or their careers, or both. He opens his heart and wealth of business experience to make suggestions and give encouragement, while still being stern when needed. After all, at a certain point you have to let go of what’s been done to you and take on your future! He is a firm believer in multiple streams of income and is honest with his listeners about the new American work scene. He also has a great library of books he’s written all of which are both encouraging and great for leading you step by step to making a living doing what you love! Even better, Dan believes you can make that happen in 48 days.
2 Dave Ramsey
Simply put, when you are desperate financially it’s difficult to make good decisions. You have no margin of income to help others or for emergencies. This week position also usually effects relationships, most of the time in a very bad way.
Dave Ramsey changed my life and my relationship with my husband. His common sense wisdom with some very counter couture guidelines can take anyone from a position of weakness to a position of strength. Even better, when you’re not squeezed and stressed over money, you can be generous and help others!
I love anything that gives clear step by step instruction on how to do life better, and Dave’s book Total Money Makeover does just that.
Like Dan Miller, Dave has an excellent podcast that shares wisdom and his heart on the financial struggles so many Americans are experiencing.
Check out Dave’s podcast here and hit the library for that book, my husband and I get along so well now. daveramsey.com And thanks to Dave, we paid off 24,000 in 9 months on an artist and a cops salaries with two kids in day care($800 a month!).
3 Seth Godin
It’s not your imagination, the business world is changing rapidly. What once was a secure job is no longer, what once was an expensive set of 24 books is now free online with even more information than Britannica ever dreamed of sharing. Seth Godin has a unique perspective on these issues and how to make your self indispensable even in a day of outsourced jobs and vacant city streets that once teamed with factory workers.
My current favorite book is Linchpin, by Seth. Seth also has a free podcast and great information available here sethgodin.com

We all have baggage. We’ve all got regrets, past hurts and relationship wounds that haunt us or our life ins some way. I’m a firm believer that you aren’t going to get far, or even be satisfied no matter how successful you are until you’ve gotten your heart straight with God. Joyce is one of those teachers that keeps it real, speaks to us where we are in all our muck and glory. She shares her pain and her joy with everyone who reads her books or listens to her sermons.
You just aren’t going to get very far if you’re focus is constantly drawn back to the past. When your heart and head are clear and whole, you can do anything! Check out Joyce’s site here for devotionals and much more joycemeyer.org
