Dave Ramsey vs EXP Realty

"Versus exp and then in men kind of run flee refers to Ramsey company is a coaching company, which it's not. It's basically for the sake of the ELP program. It's a lead selling company. We again, we talked about this yesterday but anyway, in man comes around there, you know, figures the soldier out there, writing this article. It's basically what we talked to you guys about yesterday. There's no real new information as far as the who's in the what's in the wise. But I will tell you what really is surprising to me. As I read this article wage, That Dave Ramsey and I already knew this obviously but they just summarily said we're not doing business with the XP agents any more. Not exp did not have any sort of Enterprise corporate level relationship with Dave Ramsey. Dave basically decided to just sort of get rid of his his I'm sorry, his exp agents no matter how well they've been performing as an ELP and this, obviously, it just seems to be really bizarre. I mean, why would he just summarily get rid of all the EXP agents that are even the most successful in this e l p program? If his whole point of his e l p program is to provide the best service for His Radio listeners in his book purchasers and all the people that follow us advice, I mean ultimately when you and it's fascinating again as you read this article, especially the comments on em and it's really fascinating how far out of Integrity. A lot of agents are perceiving Dave Ramsey to be especially when it's routed back to his Christian values that he definitely leads with wage. And again, if you haven't read this article, definitely read it's called Ramsay versus exp. But I'll tell you, the real punch line here is there's, it looks like there was only a couple of hundred maybe maybe three hundred maximum exp agents off of the ELP program, you know, 57,000 exp agent. So this really is just barely a blip on the radar. But really, I enjoyed reading and I was I was honestly proud of all the agents that were, the agents are interviewed and it was Agents from all different brokerages as agents from all different brands. It wasn't just a bunch of exp ages piling on trying to defend exp, wasn't even mad at all.

It was quite difficult to win. That transitions you've got the balance off of its like and he a move and here's another move up the how how was it. What should be comparisons between a live audience and or live show and this post production stock because i think people underestimate differences. Yeah the first thing is. If i wasn't doing it with like a headset with the volume from the type up like a pie. Then even though. I feel i was being loud when i listened back to it. It's very obvious studio. And i'm so. I feel like i'm talking if i'm in the library. One of the things one of the techniques. I learned very quickly. The if you're doing something in post production is i make sure i have my headset. I have the crowd noise on a pretty much not me not as damaging my is but you know pretty much really loud so it sounds so i feel like i'm in a Environment and that naturally makes you voice loud lies. You can sound slightly detached. Sometimes you know like sometimes when you get wrestling comment commentary on a wrestling videogame obviously it was just. It's just someone in a booth spouting off a lighter lions could remove from the action the there cooling we talk atkins video game like it can real life. Country is done.

"Was a lot of fun antiques that were part of the core. Start pulling the stuff off the walls he started getting rid of. Our honey buttered cornbread he thought it would be easier to take the honey butter off the top of the Corn Brin. Just put it in the corn bread. This'll. One of the most interesting stories of famous Dave's was in the beginning I didn't have money enough to have a smoker I used a garbage Camden and so are all American. Barbecue feast served on a garbage candlelit while at. Got Rid of the garbage can let's try to put it on some type of stainless steel platter and I can remember people just coming up to me and Saint Eighth. My. Family just absolutely loves the garbage can lead with all your barbecue on it where garbage can lid go? A lot of things that just was being the heart and saw famous Dave's was being ripped out. I guess you were So angry that you I read that you like severed ties with the company in two thousand fourteen is what happened. Well, I wasn't going to listen to some guy who ran McDonald's tell me how to be a barbecue pit master I had barbecue sauce running through my veins. I wasn't going to stand for it and I just said look. If. The board at the time wanted to have. Somebody like Ed Rienzie. This is what you're going to do. I'm not going to be part of it and so I basically emotionally. Legally financially was separated out famous Dave's wow financially to. Everything you divested. It's all gone. Sold all your socks well, I didn't have much stock left. You know what? A lot of people don't realize. They may think I had a lot of stock well over the years in the beginning you know like any business you have your eyes and you have your lows. Well, there are times when famous Dave's had it slows. I put up my stock as. Collateral and there were margin calls and. By time things were were they were there wasn't much left. I mean. Your name was still on all these storefronts all over the country Well, you know one of the things I didn't realize that when the company went public is you don't own your name anymore. Yeah. So consequently, I lost something that I had worked all my life for and you know I wish I had attorneys that had given me better council in the early days because you know I'm a native American I. I don't have a community of people around me that could give me good counsel and if the attorneys really cared for me, what they should have said was Dave, you shouldn't go public you really have something special you should really keep this in your family. So. You step away and the brand is is doing well at this point, they're number of management shakeups and again in two thousand sixteen. You get a call they some they want you back. They want you to come help them rebrand and Return to their roots what was the story? So I'm kind of out of famous Dave's and one day I get a call from Mike Right who was running the famous products retail line and really mike was a good friend and he called me up Dave. He said, I'm in the area. Do you mind if I stop over some mic shows up my house. He said Dave. He said there's some things we got talked about. He said the company misses you off the franchise owners. Miss you your customers. They Miss. You people who love famous dates are missing. You got to come back. And I said well I don't think the leadership wants me. He said, that's not true. He said people want you. They want you involved and I said, well, I am out of famous Dave's I'm not going back. and. He really laid a guilt trip on me. He said Dave. Time and they're in never be another time those every time you come back you gotta come back now because Ed runs is not going to be around. The company really needs you. There's new leadership we need you back how Felt. Pretty. Validating. I was in tears. I thought I would never hear that again. I. After Mike Left my wife and I talked and. It was really. A tough conversation of what do we do? Famous Dave's has really been such a love hate relationship where I. Love the Food I created I love being with our guests and the reason why came back was My wife and I came to an understanding that it was really the people that we cared about. It was the franchise owners. It was the people who came to famous states who've loved the food. And I think it was for that. Is I. Knew I had to come back. So you you start to against essentially consult with. With a company to to help them like do a rebrand and things I. Guess you kind of suggested was to to. Bring back the classics, Right. The the Cajun Chicken Sandwich and the brisket burgers and other things but also I guess at that time this twenty sixteen at even to this day, a famous Dave's started to buy back some of its franchises in order to kind of retake control I guess of the business. One of things I think the company realized is that there was some franchise owners who probably had enough there was a number of management changes over the years and and they kind of got disenfranchised with the you know not having a passion they once had. So one of the things company realizes that the only way they could write the ship was they probably had to buy back some the franchise reinvest in them, get back the training programs that we used to have an just kinda reinvent ourselves and bring back the basics. Getting back to what made us famous in the beginning, we needed to be devoted to making people. Happy. and. You see you came in in two thousand, eighteen, Jeff Criollo and I guess I mean did he starts ask kind of bring back some of those things like the the trash can and the the history I mean you go on the website now and the your story is is right there's front and center. Well I think one of the things that makes Jeff. So special is that he grew up eating famous Dave's in Chicago. He loved famous Dave's he was the first CEO. Who actually called me up on a regular basis I mean Jeff and I talk all hours of the night. He'll. He'll call me up at eleven o'clock and talk to one in the morning. This is how passionate this guy is. Jeff reaches out to the franchise partners. You'll see jeff and a restaurant actually pushing a broom when we're doing a remodel on one of the restaurants Jeff was there with a paintbrush I had never seen any prior CEO's actually get in a restaurant and WANNA work. And and your role in the company in a sense, and this is not I. Hope this is sounds complimentary I mean you really are you're like Colonel Sanders I mean you really are kind of the ambassador, the brand ambassador of the company. Do you feel like you are listening to more now than you than you were in the past? Today, there's without a doubt. Jeff listens to me. Jeff is a first CEO that actually brought me back to the board and. Said you know the board needs to hear your ideas Dave and because after all you know I I'm one of the few Barbecue restaurant owners that was actually inducted into the National Barbecue Hall of Fame Yeah I'm a celebrity judge at all of the big barbecue events I live in this world of barbecue. But the is the company still publicly traded today. Yes. The company's still publicly traded I. Think our stock is around three bucks, right? So The only place in goes up. Do. You think that I mean we're in the midst this pandemic right and many states in which famous Dave's operating Ha have certain restrictions and a lot of delivery and as you know, the restaurant industry really been hit hard Do you know I mean how how is famous Dave's doing in the midst of? This crisis. Famous, Dave's really is. Built on what's basically picnic food barbecue travels it travels really well when you look at our menu when you're serving. barbecued ribs pulled pork sandwiches, beings call saw that's the type of food that travels the famous Dave's restaurants are built for takeout. We have our own dedicated takeout doors and that's why I think famous days for the first time in a long long time is on the road to recovery. So we're actually able to thrive unlike a lot of restaurants who are struggling. You know given given all the ups and downs of of your career in a lot of incredible ups and a lot of incredible triumphs, and successes. But also some really tough tough breaks. I mean you know even even with famous Dave's kind of taking public and then. You, know? Losing. The business for awhile and the brand, and and of course now you're back in involved with it but. I mean when you look back on on the different decisions you made, would you have done things differently or do you think that you kind of had to make the mistakes you made in order to? In order to learn how to do things. Right. Guy. I struggle I think every day sometimes thinking that I wish I could do things differently but you know the reality is I really have overcome a lot of diversity in my life. I, have done things in my life that I wish I and Don I should have been dead three times. I've been broke three times. But every time, I've always come back stronger. You know often tell people that. Life, is not always on top of the mountain. It's the valleys in. It's a struggles down there that you have to come back from where you learn things I think that's how you grow and so if you're not out there on the edge making things happen, how do you know what's possible but one of the things, I, I go back to his. The food famous days. My original recipes are still holding the test of time and. As, much as we shoot ourselves in the foot as much as we've made our mistakes and growing. People have always resonated with my food and so yes, we've had our tough times at famous Dave's but but look at what we've also accomplished our barbecue products are in big box retailers like target Sam's Club Costco. All, over America. It could not have happened if things were easy. So. I think my story of by struggles and overcoming the my. adhd. My alcoholism overcoming the tough times in my life is no different than the story of famous Dave's. Dave you know you your legacy will continue to live on after you're gone because some point we're all gone obviously and this brand will continue and is that more important to you that legacy than than than than wealth or are they both equally important? Well. First of all I don't think I've ever worked to to get a paycheck more than I've worked to be a positive difference in the lives of other people. I've worked really hard to be good at what I do but more than that guy. I think if anything people remember about me, I've been able to build something and give jobs to families create opportunity where there was none in Lotta people sometimes say God would I wish I was in your shoes I have to laugh at a I don't think. So but the one thing I can share is I am grateful I live a life of gratefulness I live a life of sobriety and I live a life that I am so fortunate to be living this country because. The things that I have done, it doesn't make sense. There's there's no rhyme or reason that I was able to get a bank loan on my signature alone. Much less having one point nine, eight grade average in high school, no Undergrad and getting into Harvard University who would ever known that from some Indian kid growing up on the west side Chicago. Yeah when you think about your story and and. Everything you accomplished to you. Do you think that what happened to you happened because of your skill and and hard work and perseverance or do you think a lot of it has to do with luck? Well. I don't know about luck I? Wish I had been lucky. You, know Luck is created when you have a dream, you're willing to work for that dream. You're willing to work hard You know I think lock is a byproduct of you just. Be. One. Hundred percent devoted to. Never ever giving up. That's Dave Anderson founder of famous Dave's by the way some of you may remember that several years ago Dave. Competed a food network barbecue challenge called best in smoke and he made it all the way to the finals until till right at the very end, they pull a surprise. You've got twenty minutes to cook something out of Tofu. What's toefl in all my years of cookie I had no clue what Tofu was and today I know there's like a firm Tofu serve like a silky of media they gave us the silky smooth and I lost fifty thousand dollars because I could not cook.

"I didn't feel comfortable with. So when you had ideas were they listen to you when you said Hey, let's do this. Let's do that or would they sit well Dave we we got this. We know what we should do. You. Know I, think that's a struggle with any growing businesses. I think they thought of me even though I was the founder and I was the the the creator of all this they sort of of me as the entrepreneur gap and they thought that. You know the corporate people needed to take over in. The entrepreneur to sort of mess things up. And and today I. Wish I had fought harder in I had trusted my gut more because I would have stayed to the smaller footprints and I would have stayed to a smaller core menu. Two thousand three you step down to become an assistant secretary at the Bureau of Indian. Affairs Washington DC. Must have been an exciting opportunity for you. So you just kind of at that point just left famous Dave's tired like you walked out and said, look I'm going to go do this job, and maybe I'll be back in a couple of years well. The reason why left is I had to when you accepted job with as an assistant secretary or any high level government job, you basically have to sign away all of your rights to any of your business interests. and. So as much as I wanted to stay involved I icon I had to if I was going to do this job for the president and serve the White House, I had to sign away all my business injuries. Looking back. I wish I had never did that because why? Well I, think what happened? When I went to Washington DC all my entrepreneurial spirit. Got Lost in the politics of being in government. And I should have listened to people who constantly inside Dave, you don't want to go to Washington DC and I said but I, really believe that I can make a difference I wanted to encourage entrepreneurship within the tribes I really hit some great ideas. But when I got there boy, did I get an awakening that you know change doesn't happen in Washington DC like people thank and as an entrepreneur who's used to getting things done. I was stifle here and I was really frustrated and you know it just seemed like every turn of the road everything was grid-locked. So, you step down in two thousand five clearly frustrated with with your job in Washington and I guess you tried to come back. To the board of famous Dave's. But the board refused to give you a seat. It is that right? Yes. That's one of the unfortunate things of publicly traded companies. They felt they didn't need me. He was still shareholder I was still major shareholder. Yeah. But you had no other influence over the company at that point. No non. Wow. They they felt they didn't need any more. Wow. How did you take that? Were you bad where do you hurt or you? Had responded that I was devastated. Devastated. Everything that I worked hard for all my life. My ambitions are just like shattered is like this was my dream I had worked hard all these years you know in my kitchen working on seasonings working on recipes working on my barbecue sauces.

"dave g" Discussed on How I Built This

"For and you know over the years it just kind of built up where. I couldn't wait till Friday so I could party and couldn't wait till. Saturday. So I could party after work and you know what I didn't realize sat pretty soon I was partying on Sunday and it wasn't too long after that I was partying on Monday Tuesday, Wednesday partying all the time. and. One morning my wife came to the bedroom. She said Dave you got some friends downstairs. You better go down and save on I. So I don't remember inviting anybody over she said while they're here and they say your friend of yours. I'm all confused I have no idea what's going on. So I go downstairs and sure enough. There is people that I knew and it didn't take me too long affair at was going on, they were doing intervention on me. And that was a tough thing. Nobody wants to admit that they struggle with alcohol. Some nobody wants to admit that they need help. Cure I was listening to my wife, my son. and. Some really close friends. Tommy how much my drinking was taking a toll on the family? And when they said Dave, you gotTa choice here. What are you going to do? IS I. Let's do this thing. How were you able to Did you treatment? Yes I Treatment sounds like a tough thing I think it's one of the reasons why People were struggling kind of don't want to have anything to do with it. Because it sounds like something people do to you but today, I am so grateful twenty-five years April than sober that I today I look at the treatment is really recovery and recovery as a gift. And I mean meantime things were moving fast with famous Dave's like you open that first location in in ninety four and then a second one. In Ninety, five in Minneapolis and then. By, Ninety six, you've got four restaurants I think all of them in that region. But then with with just four restaurants, you decide that year to to take the company publishing. Well. I'm very open about it I. think that was one of the worst mistakes of my life going public because I didn't realize that when you call public, you don't own it anymore, but we went public and we we actually have salt. We were supposed to open up at six dollars we ended up opening at eleven. Wow. So. Famous Dave's goes public in nineteen ninety-six and a new CEO is named Douglas. Lanham did you did you bring Douglas on because you were now a public company and and you thought it was better that he can run the operation? Well, one of the things I was told by the Wall Street guys with that I was just a barbecue guy that I need to hire Wall Street savvy casual dining executives. Yeah. The one thing was is that they tried to run famous Dave's as a casual dining company. When really we were a barbecue company, we SORTA lost our. Of being just barbecue and and people were trying to turn it into something else. So you are basically the chairman of the Board Douglas Lanham lasted like a year or so before he stepped down because the stock price was falling and and I, guess round two, thousand famous Dave's kind of shifted or pivoted into a franchise model. Did you support that idea I think I was always supportive looking back though I wish we had kept it within the family, but you know we had some good franchise partners but I think one of the problems early on was. They tried to get rid of the lines that we had around the block, and so they thought that the way to levy eight that was to build bigger boxes to giant giant restaurants too big too big and today there's a lot of sixty five, hundred square foot boxes that probably should have never been built but to me, the franchise model was going to be tough for famous Dave's because it was your recipe it was a. Technique and you're kind of handing off to Franchisees and you you risk giving up the quality right when you when you turn to a franchise model. Well I think that's one of the things that hallmark about famous Dave's never really lost the quality of our food. My original menu is actually inspired by Jimmy Johns Dad James Todd who he said Dave, he said first of all, you want to keep everything simple. In the second thing you always want to do everything in threes and he said there's something magic about threes whether it's the Holy Trinity it's the three little pigs three me goes on your market set gall ready aim fire people remember things threes. So the original famous dates menu is really pork beef and chicken coffee milk and pop co saw beans and potato salad. is on threes and even how we trained people we would season small conserve. Now there might be several steps underneath, but everything was done in threes and I think that speaks to going back to that one hundred. Best of the best things that I wanted to accomplish was I wanted to have the best training program in America so I never really days I spent about two million dollars developing my training programs and I created this leadership from the heart training program that. Focused on building up the people. The second thing I did was I created off of university I wanted to create certified pitmasters and then I also created a train the trainer program. And so we spent a lot of money on training. In fact, people would look a famous Dave's and they say, wow, you guys spend a lot of money training people. What happens when you spent policy money training And they leave. All add to do is look at it and say What if I didn't train with the best training I could do. and. They stayed. After the company went public and you kind of founded outside CEO and then. You know there were other kind of corporate folks who were brought in to run the company. Did you feel like you're losing control over the business that that this idea that you had was kind of slipping away from you I think for the most part. The. Only thing I regret it was the company building these bigger boxes and you know barbecue is a type of thing that grows slow and it's slow spell king I. I think that Tried to grow too fast I think was one of the problems of being a publicly traded company. Now, it seemed like we were being run by the quarterly earnings report in if we were to miss earning statement by one penny, my God, the stock got slaughtered and as a native American, I didn't have a lot of people around me that could council me. I was sort of at the mercy of people that knew how to run publicly. Traded companies on Wall Street that. That's what I think.

"All around this country, and if you were to tell me that you know for a fact, they had better costs on Anchorage Alaska I will be on a plane today I will be flying up to Anchorage Alaska and by tomorrow night, I will have stolen that recipe. But I mean you I mean, you knew you had recipes because you were you were making barbecue like from the time you were a kid, right? Yeah. I can remember even back. Then we were the first family on our block that had a charcoal grill, and so I started learning how to grill foods and then I wanted to smoke things and we we didn't have a smoker. So I took a an all trash. Can I cut a hole in the bottom took rebar Poor across. So I could put my ribs on top of that, and so by time I open famous Dave's I actually have been working on my recipes for twenty years because the ingredients that you use to create the the sauces, the seasonings barbecue is not easy. It's hard because the to make good barbecue sauce. You know it's almost like Chinese cooking. There's a lot of flavors involved in making a good barbecue sauce. It's our Scott, a robust spiciness to it it's sweet and then. There's different forms of sweetness to it. You you've got your Brown sugars you have your honey's you've got your fruit sauces. There's a lot of nuances to making great tasting barbecue sauce and I think especially when you're creating robust flavors that he is very important. A lot of people may not realize this but every menu item at famous Dave's is hot mic cost saw has a bite. My beans have helped knows. That he opens up the taste buds and that's when you really can enjoy the full flavor of my cooking. And did you give it the name famous Dave's as kind of a joke because you weren't get famous right? Well, the road to famous Dave's not only are we in a small town but I was also eight miles out of town and on the road out of town there's Dave's guns Dave's antiques Dave's boats. So I was going to name my place Dave's famous barbecue check we're getting ready open I get my business cards and it said famous Dave's barbecue. I am mad can't believe the printer messed up my business cards and my wife an all her was them said Dave calmed down. Why don't you just leave? You know we're about ready to get open just leave it. So famous Dave's. The rest is history. I read that like you were obsessed with all kinds of things like when you. When you set out to make the restaurant, you wrote in hundred things that you want us to be the best at not just like the best ribs and the best brisket and. The coleslaw but like the best bathrooms like is that is that right there you want to put a lot of attention into the bathrooms in the restaurant I believe that I'm the first one they coined the term bathroom marketing I. think that's one of the things that people talked about was was my bathrooms my ladies bathroom had imported rose painted basins in twenty four karat gold faucets on a Marble Base I had wrought iron around the mirror I had crown molding I mean who puts crown molding in a bathroom but I remember when we first opened I got a call within the first week. Some Lady said Anderson Right me down for eight thirty on Thursday your women's restroom. I said what she said. You heard me eight thirty I want your women's bathroom. She says I'm going to hold my next cocktail party. Wow. Tell us about you know. There's all kinds of details. It wasn't just great food, but you wanted people to talk about the bathrooms. Wasn't just the bathroom so I, think it goes back to my best the best list Brenston, smy music. I, personally inventory every blue song that was played in famous saves had something like six thousand blues CDs back. Then I knew the difference between Jump Blues, pushed Blues I didn't want any all blues. I wanted all the sort of Chicago Jump Blues. So when people are sitting in a famous Dave's, I, almost wanted to be subliminally they had to start getting in this groove and they felt good and they were bopping around. So that was all the experience I wanted to touch off five senses from the smell of the wonderful would aromas of meat smoking in my To them feeling good because of the music and then per visuals i. T kes my famous Dave's so everything about famous Dave's was really. Sensory Overload I'm looking at Hayward on on the map and it is I mean it's up there. It's northern Wisconsin it is far from everything. It's like got to be what two hours from. Minneapolis. Three hours, three hours we're. We're we're out in the middle of nowhere and. I never advertised it wasn't but months that the word quickly spread throughout Wisconsin and even as far away as Iowa. We're serving six thousand people a week and and as I be walking through the restaurant people would grab me and say Dave you gotta open up one of these in my town. So where you from? Well, we're from Des Moines. Iowa we drove all the way up here. We heard about your barbecue. We just came all the way up here. Just eat people actually demanded us to have famous Dave's and so the the first famous Dave's. Hayward was in Minneapolis, I found an abandoned gas station. It was only twenty nine, hundred square feet. We only had fifty seats and we opened up again without any advertising. But within weeks I've got a line around the block how we're doing phenomenal numbers. I can't even keep food in stock I had to get a refrigerator truck to park next to my little restaurant just so we had food to cook. What what was the I mean what was it that you were? You were doing that was it I mean obviously your food was good but you gotta put the word out how how people finding out about it was just word of mouth. You know it was like word of mouth on steroids I? You know I have no idea. But people were telling friends and friends telling friends you gotta try the barbecue but you know I think that's What speaks to famous Dave's is that I went through all of the the things that took to make great barbecue I slow smoked are ribs until they were tender I flame charged him. So we were able to caramelized sauce on them. We but more than anything guy it's America's food barbecue is how America celebrates you know if you if you WanNa, have a good time. You tell your friends come on over while the backyard barbecue out. I know that while you were starting to get. Famous Dave's up and running. You also Kinda struggling in your personal life. You were drinking heavily at the time. And you would. Later recognized that his alcoholism. Can you. Can you tell me about that about what was going on in your life? Well I'm pretty open that my life. Has, had some very dramatic transformations, I. I do think sometimes that are native American. Folks struggle with the alcoholism. I. Know My. My Mom side. It was in the family on my Dad's side. It was a family and but you know you didn't talk about those things and so I wasn't really aware that was something I needed to watch out.

"To Zig Ziglar was that completely separate? I. Think Six Ziglar was the spokesperson for multilevel company. Got It. Cost Twenty five hundred dollars to join. Now twenty five, hundred dollars in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy one was a lot of money at my dad for the first time. Realized that his son who wasn't the best student. Who Barely got through school? who had adhd maybe this was something that he could do. So my dad had some savings and then he borrowed some money to give me this chance what just out of curiosity what was the product tiny with the product they were trying to sell it was called steed conditioners. There is a gas additive which made your car run better there was oil conditioner right and did you have success selling it? Sold one case of the stuff my dad had a garage full of steed oil and gas conditioners which never went away I didn't sell anything. But here's the thing part of this opportunity was we had to go through a five day how to sell training program. That training program changed my life because part of the training program every day was they would tear down everything you thought about yourself, and then they would build you up. I read that you even you'd like Stanford Mirror and practice shaking hands to gain confidence is a salesman. Would you do that? Yeah. Because you know growing up I was really probably shy bashful kid in class, and here I am trying to be a salesman and so for years and my dad's basement I stood in front of a five dollar mirror that I got from Kmart and I had a candle and I would say A. B. C. and I tried to put the candle out with my voice and I would practice smiling in the. Mirror. Today everybody thinks I'm photogenic thick. I've got a good spile. Well, I, worked at that smile in fact, I even would wink at myself but these were the things that I. Did because I realized I had to change I, was I had to go from being a shy bashful dumb kid into being somebody that could go into Roman be able to share a story being able to tell somebody who you were. But meanwhile, the gas conditioner business did not work out and I guess you you then got like another job working at a at a new store location for any power. Right. And that was a pretty important turning point in my life because I. helped. Open up a brand new store a start to finish which would help me later on in life. But I went over there and a significant part of this is that not only did I meet my wife there who is selling the menswear Eddie Bauer. That's Kinda how I get into selling terrariums play terrariums. Yeah. there was a young lady, their who is selling these little bobble balls Christmas that had partridge berries in what they call Princess Pines wrapped in some moss and I never seen anything. So beautiful. Well she had said that she just couldn't go on some. The said Wa, I can sell and so on my own time when I wasn't working at eighty hour, I would go out and I go to a flower store and show these bubble Paul's. They wiped them. Then I realized that I should be doing this for myself so. I. started. Making my own line of terrariums in plant to dish gardens, and you just make yourselves. You would just make the little garden inside the balls. Yeah I actually had a corner in my dad's basement where I would bring these huge bags of dirt and. Sand and other ingredients to to make the right dirt for these terrariums and Then my dad being electricity set up a whole line of grow lights and his basement. So I started bringing in hundreds and hundreds of plants, how did you know what to do you? Just kind of figured it out how did you make them look Nice. Well, I think it goes back to my art teacher who said, Dave. You see things other people don't see. So I think I had this ability that I could take these little plants and arranging them so that there was almost this sort of. Feeling to them, you know they they were alive they had collar and and I was able to arrange them. So they they really looked special and I think that's what the floors you know saw when I would bring my samples. So they saw something that was really special. So. Did you start to make some sales. Yeah the first time I have my own samples I go to Richard Link floors. And I got my first order from. Mr Ash at Richard Lang Florist and that mother's Day, I went to his flower shop because I knew it was going to be busy and you don't WanNa loud people don't realize this at Florus unlike retail store that can order toys. Three months in advance floors have to work like days around the clock because it seems like everybody forgets they have A. Mother. Until Mother's Day. But all these flower arrangements have to be fresh. So I went to him and I helped them busted down his boxes I swept his floor I even cleaned his bathroom for him and then I helped them deliver flowers, and after that mother's Day everybody's exhausted he comes up to me and he said here puts us in your pocket and he hands me a fistful of cash. And I said Mr Astra I can't. I can't accept this. I came here to help you because that's how grateful I am you gave me my first opportunity. Mr. Ashton couldn't believe that I would work for nothing. And he went and told everyone of US florists that he was good friends of these said, you gotTa meet this kid he's a hard worker. He's got beautiful stuff give them a chance give him an opportunity. So after that first summer I had almost every major retail floor. Say Chicago wow buying your terrariums by my transplanted discards. Yeah. So what are you starting to feel pretty confident about the business? Well Part of my story said, I'm native. American just started out in business. My parents don't have money I don't have money. Businesses growing and I can't get a bank loan. I. Must have pounded the streets of Chicago I went to Bank after bank and always got turned down. You GotTa have assets you got to have collateral and I said, well, I'm starting out I really don't by the way what what's an asset? I mean I would have. Stacks of orders and I would go into a bank and I wasn't able to get anywhere. But something else Mr Ashton Schnur shared with me one day he said you know Dave if you really want to get ahead. You've got to join the local chamber of Commerce. So I dressed up and I went to a chamber of Commerce meetings and here every mover and Shaker community that was in business was there and they always had a speaker and so I like that I joined. My local chamber of Commerce and I was there religiously in fact I started helping set up. And one day I was at a Chamber of Commerce meeting. A one of the presence of the bank. grabs me after meeting his name was Gerhard. He was a president of the Bank of Chicago on Wilson Avenue. He said Anderson Jim. Nash ner speaks highly of you. He said, I'm having a promotion at my bank this Saturday. How would you like to set up in our lobby? I'm going to have somebody on the other side, pass out hot dogs and balloons and popcorn, and you can sell your dish gardens. So the next morning I show up at the bank I.

"Institute, for Indians, Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. Don't know. Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. She was A choctaw speaking Indian and When he got put into these boarding schools, he can remember. Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? My Dad was electricity and My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. In Chicago being a great pizza town. Chicago hotdogs, my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. For rips and growing up I. Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. As Barbecue. Capital because of the great migration. So many African Americans who migrated out of the Jim Crow South moved to Chicago and brought them their culinary traditions you the also brought blues, what a great combination in. So Chicago throughout the years has always been known as a great blues town down also great, barbecue. Dave as a kid. Did your mom and dad instill strong. Indian values in you did you did you have a strong? Indian identity as a kid. You know growing up in a native American family we were cognizant that. We were America's first people. My Dad was very proud of his choctaw nation. My mom was proud to be from the Likud array reservation and for us that got carried over in that we ate Indian foods. My Dad was very insistent that he had his foods from the south my mom with growing up. She did a lot of fishing and she harvested wild rice. And so throughout years. My Dad would always. Make pilgrimages down to the south so he could get his banana. Corn. Type of bread almost like tamales wrapped up and corn us, and then my mom would always take fishing up north and we would harvest wild rice and but more importantly to raise money for the family. My parents would have a Indian. Freiburg stand and my dad would grilled and smoked cup venison mom would make Indian FRY bread and also wild rice soup but we would sell venison fried bread sandwiches along with balls of wild rice soup I think attending Indian powwows with my mom where we would have the Indian Freiburg stand really taught me a lot about cooking cooking outdoors but also the appreciation for foods that are harvested naturally being able to harvest wild rice. Fishing in all of those experiences that I think throughout the years of always carried over to me, how are you as a student and how was school difficult for you or were you pretty good student? I was not a good student. I. Thought I was the dumbest kid in class you know I. I remember my dad's sitting me at the kitchen table. I would have a blank piece of paper in front of me and I would cry because I, didn't know what to do and it wasn't until years later that I found out that I had attention deficit disorder, which explains a lot you know explains why was bouncing around all the time and you know back then I don't think there was a name for attention deficit disorder other than your problematic kid. If it wasn't for an art teacher telling me he said Dave he said I I know you struggle in the rest of your classes he said. But when I watch you, you may not be the best artist but you see things that other people don't see. I would have never heard that from an English teacher I'd never would have heard from a math teacher and that really stuck with me all these years I'm to see things other people don't see I'm able to visualize I'm able to. See where things can go. You should clearly high school was not school was not did not come easy for you and was challenging for you. I mean I guess when you were eighteen, you kind of had your first experience with entrepreneurship. Selling fuel additives or some what was that? Tell me about that so I was right out of high school. In that year I had gotten a call from a friend who said Dave you have a suit. Of course I got a suit. He said put your suit out I'm picking you up. So I, put my suit on. I have no clue what's happening. We drive to a beautiful hotel near O'hare airport and he still wouldn't tell me what's going on and then we go onto the lower level. We go into this beautiful room and there's a lot of people in there. And he said you are about to witness when the most incredible things you'll ever see. And then all of a sudden. The most. Dynamic person comes out and starts telling all the people in this room. This incredible story how it doesn't matter where they've been what they've been through or what they think of themselves. They can be successful and this person was none other than Zig. Ziglar. The famous motivational speaker six. Yeah. I mean listening to Zig Ziglar share how I could become an entrepreneur selling oil additive and gas conditioner and I never heard anybody so motivating. So inspiring telling me that I could be successful. So. And my dad s why put on a suit and where I go I said you know I heard the most amazing thing that I could be successful I could all my business and I said, dad, you gotta hear this guy, he's having another meeting tomorrow night you please go with me I'm bagged up. So he goes with me the next night and here this guy sounded like my Dad Skyros from Yazoo City Mississippi spoke with a southern accent he. Said doesn't matter where you come from doesn't matter what you've been through anybody could succeed and my dad was blown away to for the first time he thought his son maybe could be a businessman maybe you know and it's oil conditioners as they do with a car and maybe my son can do that. So you went to seize ziglar speak, and by the way we had holly tag on who who founded supergroup a also was influenced by his tapes. had. You find this opportunity to get involved in selling a fuel additive was connected.

"dave g" Discussed on How I Built This

"Did you. Give . it the name famous Dave's as kind of a joke because you weren't get famous, , right Well on the road out of town, , there's Dave's guns, , Dave's antiques, , Dave's boats so. . was going to name my place Dave's famous barbecue shop. . I get my business cards and it said famous Dave's barbecue. . I imagine I can't believe the printer messed up my business cards and my wife's a dave calm down when she just leave it. . So famous Dave's. . History. . From NPR, , it's how I built this show about innovators, , entrepreneurs, , idealists, , and the stories behind the movements they built. . I'm guy rise and on the show today our passion for smoked ribs lead Dave Anderson open a barbecue. . In the middle of nowhere and how it grew into famous Dave's one of the biggest barbecue chains in the country. . Are. . So, , most of the biggest restaurant chains started in small places McDonald's was born in San Bernardino California Domino's in Epsilon t Michigan Sonic Shawnee Oklahoma Arby's Boardman Ohio. . There are a number of reasons why this is the case there's usually less competition. . The rent is lower, , and if white you're offering is new or different people will stand in line for it as they did at the original boardwalk fries in ocean city Maryland which is now a franchise company with more than one hundred locations nationwide they stood in line the chicken. . Salad Chicken Auburn Alabama up which now has one hundred forty stores same with five guys in Arlington, , Virginia and empire of more than fifteen hundred locations today, , and as you will hear in the mid nineteen, , ninety s people came from far and wide for some of the best pit barbecue they ever had and it wasn't in Texas Hill country or eastern North, , Carolina. . But rather in Hayward Wisconsin town of twenty three, , hundred people in the northern reaches of the United States where in January he can get down to minus seventeen degrees. . This is where Dave Anderson, , after years of trying out different business ideas decided to open famous Dave's barbecue in nineteen, , ninety four. . Today famous Dave's has about one hundred and twenty five locations nationwide making it one of the largest barbecue chains in the country. . But the story of Dave's is also a story of how a simple passion for serving smoked ribs chicken and brisket Kim grow too big and too fast and how a founder of can almost lose complete control of a good idea. . Dave Anderson grew up in a working class family in Chicago in the nineteen fifties and sixties both his parents were native Americans who grew up on reservations in different parts of the country. . My Dad's a full blood choctaw Indian from idol. . Homa and if you were to look at a map, , of Oklahoma, , you'd see that I had a bell is in the southeast corner of Oklahoma, , which is way down south, , and then my mom is from the Likud array reservation wishes way up north she's. . A member of the Likud Ray Lake Superior Band of Ojibway says she grew up in Wisconsin he grew up in Oklahoma and how did they meet both of my parents? ? I think is the unfortunate part of my story where taken by the Bureau of Indian affairs away from their families and stuck an Indian boarding schools basically making orphans out of them <hes> now fortunately for me, , though my parents met at Haskell Institute, for , Indians, , Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. . So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. . Don't know. . Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. . She was <hes>. . A choctaw speaking Indian and <hes>. . When he got put into these boarding schools, , he can remember. . Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. . But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. . No, , they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? ? My Dad was electricity and <hes>. . My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. . So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. . In Chicago being a great pizza town. . Chicago hotdogs, , my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. . For rips and growing up I. . Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine , eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. . Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. . As Barbecue. . Capital because of the great migration. . So many African Americans who migrated out of the Jim Crow South moved to Chicago and brought them their culinary traditions you the also brought blues, , what a great combination in. So . Chicago throughout the years has always been known as a great blues town down also great, , barbecue. . Dave as a kid. . Did your mom and dad instill strong. . Indian values in you did you did you have a strong? ? Indian identity as a kid. . You know growing up in a native American family we were cognizant that. . We were America's first people. . My Dad was very proud of his choctaw nation. . My mom was proud to be from the Likud array reservation and for us that got carried over in that we ate Indian foods. . My Dad was very insistent that he had his foods from the south my mom <hes> with growing up. . She did a lot of fishing and she harvested wild rice. . And so <hes> throughout years. . My Dad would always. . Make pilgrimages down to the south so he could get his banana. . Corn. . Type of bread almost like tamales wrapped up and corn us, , and then my mom would always take fishing up north and we would harvest wild rice and <hes> but more importantly to raise money for the family. . My parents would have a Indian. . Freiburg stand and my dad would grilled and smoked cup venison mom would make Indian FRY bread and also wild rice soup but we would sell venison fried bread sandwiches along with balls of wild rice soup I think attending Indian powwows with my mom where we would have the Indian Freiburg stand really taught me a lot about cooking cooking outdoors but also the appreciation for foods that are harvested naturally being able to harvest wild rice. . Fishing in all of those experiences that I think throughout the years of always carried

"Building is larger than my house in their furniture's nicer than mine. That must not be an accident. Yeah I mean I think that the idea of a psychological thing about right which is a thing hanging over you like like when you get a when I get a bill and maybe got lost the mail and then you get the warmth of red thing on the top saying you know past notice you know freaks freaks me out but but then I've got. I've got friends who are economists and know a lot about finance and they'll say look if if you've got a really low interest loan like mortgage like for example example. My my home mortgage rate is really low. It's it's three point. Something percent really small. percentage rate They'll say to me. Hey a you know that's debt A that you should carry that you should pay that off slowly. Shouldn't just pay it off quickly because you're going to get the deduction and all those things does. Does that make sense to you. It sounds like they went to the same class. I went to Gaul but the problem is the data is different than the academic theory the actual data in the marketplace of people who really build wealth again. I have never met someone ever and I've been doing this thirty years years. I've met billionaires. I've met people that are deca millionaires. I've met thousands and thousands and thousands of millionaires. I have never in all all of that. Time met one. That said Dave you know I use that low interest on my home to build wealth. They never tell me that. As a matter of fact the average millionaire pays off their home in ten point two years and so You know the only people who can be wrong twice a day and keep their job or weather forecasters an the columnists so I really don't care. What their theory is? I'm talking about real people who are winning and so really the idea is if you can eliminate your debt. That's a secret that's sort the the the co- The guess not really secret but that's kind of the the when people say. Hey Dave what's your secret. What's the magic formula you? It's really getting rid of debt. Well because people wanna live their dreams they WANNA be outrageously generous they WANNA be able to change their family tree And when you don't have any payments you can put fifteen percents of your income and your 401k. Now fifteen percent of your income if you only make household income below average of fifty thousand dollars a year is seventy vigny five hundred dollars a year. Six hundred and twenty five dollars a month which from age thirty to age sixty five in a poorly performing mutual fund will be over two million dollars dollars. That's the power of not having a house payment. That's the power of not having car payments. That's the power of not having a mastercard and spending more than I make an acting in Congress and I can print money or something. It just doesn't work so when you have people who call in and say yeah you know. We took the SLOAN OUT ON A. We got this really nice car car. We you know we. We took this loan to buy you know this house or whatever I mean. Do you also sort of council people to. I don't know to be kind of more more modest with what they buy to be less materialistic or is that not not something that you really care about. Sure I mean. I've made a lot of money in my life but you never make enough money you to buy anything you want. Yeah 'cause there's an infinite number of things you can buy and so at some point you have to learn about this thing called contentment at some on point you have to say hey stuff is fine. Gets you some stuff. But if you eat enough lobster it tastes like so I mean so many things you can do with money and I and some point. It's an the endgame of it is is empty and so the the whole thing is yeah. I need to limit the car I buy. I need to limit the house. I live in any lead. Limit my spending at the mall. I need to limit the price of my purse or my jacket or my haircut. Or whatever so that it's within the bounds of common sense so that I can live my dreams. If you will we'll live like no one else later you can live and give like no one else is that I mean that's interesting because that really talk to people. I talked to obviously a lot of very wealthy people right right and it's interesting because many of them don't sort of see their money is their money especially when you're talking about a billionaire right. You can't spend it fast enough. Most of that money is going to be given away has to be given away. Is that in your view. Kind of one of the points of of accumulated a lot of money to to give it away. Well now you quickly learn whether you're in a situation like you're describing or whether you're a person of faith that you don't own it as a personal faith I believe I don't don't own anything. I'm just managing it for God. Part of one of my one of my directions is I manage. His money is for the good of my household past that it's for the good of others others past that it's for the good of an inheritance and you know passing money along in so I'm managing it for the good of the community for the good of my family family my future and my my my lynch as well and so that you start to realize I'm a manager I'm a steward of of these incredible responsibilities and it just it ceases to become all about you otherwise you just turn inward and become one all those people and there's a few of those money but not many dave an not naming any names but some of your competitors on the radio they really Part of their currents he sort of speak is anger anger about the system about politicians Pointing fingers at people rallying people up that is not not. It's not what you do. It sounds like you're basically trying to say the people look forget about you know the political situation or forget about an individual In your state or policy like you actually have agency you actually have the ability to to to write right your destiny it is. That is that right. Is that what you're trying to say to people. You Know I. It does mean no good to convince someone to be angry at something they can do nothing about. I can't fix what goes on in the White House. I mean I had a political person asked me to come testify before Congress not sit. No No 'cause you don't you're not going to do a thing I say. So why am I gonNA waste my good air and the only reason you're doing is you want to somehow how cozy up to my brand to get votes and you're not going to do any of this stuff so you know it's just it's a manipulative garbage so I'm going to stay home and help people and I'm going to save my jet fuel you know it's just not going to do it and Because I I have prospered and I have failed during every reportable TYPE OF POLITICAL REGIME IN AMERICA EXTREME liberals extreme conservatives and you know misbehavior. `have you're of all kinds and the White House it turns out that what I do every day when I get up and go to work and the decisions I make has a whole lot more to do with whether I succeed when what those scrubbers do I mean you have had a life of total loss right and collapse right and and that really really informed the way you think about about the world today I mean when you were twenty five twenty six. You thought you're the smartest guy in the planet now you you have written bestselling books. You sold eleven million copies. Lots of people think you are the smart financial guy on the planet but do you still will like if you were evaluating Daveramsey from the outside. Would you be skeptical of Dave Ramsey. Or do you think he is the smartest guy on the planet. I'm skeptical. Anybody thinks Mars go on the planet planet. So now I I I learn something every day Older and wiser than was when I started this journey But this journey is not over. My wife is not married to the same guy. She married thirty seven years ago and she will tell you. Thank God so I'm a lot better leader in my business than I was when I started at thirty two years old a much more knowledgeable of digital things than I couldn't even spell digital a few years ago. Oh and I am continually learning. I'm the I admit I don't know everything what I do know I do know and I'm okay with that too. That's Dave Ramsey author of financial peace and other bestselling books. CEO Ramsey solutions and host of the Dave Ramsey show. So one of the most listened to radio shows and podcasts in the country. He thanks for listening to the show this week. The music for this episode was composed host and performed by drop electric garages. And you've been listening to wisdom from the top for the media and built it productions.
