A Dave Ramsey Business Leadership Seminar will be offered Thursday, March 5, at the University of Wyoming Conference Center.

Manufacturing-Works is a partnership among UW, the National Institutes of Standards and Technology, and the Wyoming Business Council. It provide assistance, training and engineering solutions to technology-based companies and manufacturers. Main offices are located on the UW campus.

Chris Hogan will lead the Dave Ramsey Business Leadership Seminar from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Cost is $300 per person, which includes lunch. For registration information, visit the website at

“I really enjoyed Chris Hogan's presentation on EntreLeadership. What really amazed me is how the concepts are all very basic and common sense. It's just, for me, those concepts had never been collected and presented in such a way,” says one Cody participant. “Everything made sense and easily flowed from section to section. Chris kept the crowd engaged, and participation level was high over the entire class. I would not hesitate to attend another class put on by Mr. Hogan.”

Among topics to be discussed at the Laramie seminar:

-- “Start with a Dream, End with a Goal -- Living Your Dreams, Vision, Mission Statement, and Goals.” This lesson explains exactly how to turn dreams into achievable goals, and how to create and sustain a goal-driven organization.

-- “The Map to the Party -- Grasping the Undeniable Relationship Between Great Communication and Great Companies.” The seminar topic asks: “Ever dreamed that your small business could be a place where productivity and creativity are high and negativity is non-existent? It doesn’t have to be a fantasy. Learn how to create a culture of communication -- the key to any successful company.”

-- “People Matter Most -- Building Unity and Loyalty.” Building a unified and loyal organization is the key to overcoming growing pains. Unfortunately, this also is one of the most unknown, misunderstood and missing elements in companies today, according to the seminar’s topic description.

-- “Mastering ‘the Rope’ -- Delegation: The Best Way to Build a Business Bigger than You.” “Delegation is the most misunderstood and abused area of leadership,” Ramsey explains. “A leader’s ability to delegate properly is the greatest limiting factor to a business’s growth.” This lesson is for anyone who has said, “I need three more of me.”

-- “Financial Peace for Business -- Bulletproof Principles for Money, Debt, and Funding the Future.” The final topic has the most measurable impact on businesses. It explains the common myths about the use of debt in small business.
