Dave DeBlander: Forty Words to Awaken the Entrepreneur Within

posted by David Wolf on Jan 14, 2011 | Comments (0) | Permalink | Trackback URL

Dave has a fabulous turn-key carpet cleaning water damage restoration business in Pensacola, Fl. He has a great staff which runs the ever expanding business and is able to take fourteen or more weeks of vacation every year. His business has been the recipient of many awards including the prestigious 2009 Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, the Affiliate of the Year, 2008 by the Pensacola Association of Realtors and Oct. 2008 Small Business of the Month by the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce. Dave has written a very successful and highly respected seven part manual/ book for the carpet cleaning industry entitled How to Get Off the Truck and on to the Beach. He has also written two other books for the industry entitled How to Develop a Turn-Key Business and How to Market a Water Damage Business.

Dave has been a business coach for hundreds of business owners the last four years working with Howard Partridge’s Phenomenal Products Inner Circle program.

Recently, he has been touring the country with Mr. Partridge, in their Making a Difference Tour where they teach business owners how to work on their businesses rather than in their businesses. Dave has been a regular featured writer for the carpet cleaning industry’s top trade magazine, ICS Magazine for three years and his popular articles have made him one of carpet cleaning’s favorite writers.

Probably most important, though, has been Dave’s ability to balance work and home life. Dave has always made it a priority to not only grow his business but to spend quality and quantity time with his wife and daughter and now grandchildren, too. He has always thought that you can have it all and even when his business was a small one truck operation, Dave figured out how to have at least four weeks or more of vacation per year. That type of thinking has paid off as he spends countless hours on the beach now with his beautiful wife, daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. You can have it all and Dave DeBlander talks it and walks it.

On the Book:

Forty Words (To Awaken the Entrepreneur Within) is a book that promotes the idea that entrepreneurs in America can have a thriving business and have a fabulous personal life at the same time. Author, Dave DeBlander, a long time business owner and writer, asked seventy-five very successful business people to describe to him in one word what it takes to be a success. Those seventy-five people came up with forty different words which Mr. DeBlander examines. While looking at those words, Mr. DeBlander gives many illustrations concerning those words and asks the reader to look at how the reader measures up to them. Mr. DeBlander also weaves in many stories of his own career and his wife’s, a National Sales Director in Mary Kay, to encourage the reader to be the best that they can be. He has the ability to prod and to probe into the readers brain and with humor and simplicity give the reader the idea that with the right attitude and some planning, they can have it all. While looking at the forty words, it is Mr. DeBlander’s hope that the reader will have an “aha moment,” where the light will come on and the reader will realize what is holding them back or what can propel them to thrilling success.
