Greenleaf Book Group Authors Ron Carson and Scott Ford are Today’s Honoree for Tuesday January 19th, 2016

SustainableLegendary businessman Ron Carson, CEO of Omaha-based Carson Wealth, practices what he preaches to achieve and live a rich life.  So does his co-author and friend, Scott Ford, founder and CEO of Maryland-based Cornerstone Wealth Management Group.  And, it just takes 15 minutes a day.

In fact, their new book, The Sustainable Edge: 15 Minutes a Week to a Richer Entrepreneurial Life hits book stores Jan 19, 2016 and will help entrepreneurs, executives and stay-at-home parents alike identify their major passions and priorities, and then build their life around them.  They will explain that the sustainable edge not only means creating a business or career where you can fulfill your passions but it also having time for the three or four other things in life that are most important to you—perhaps, family, faith, health, hunting, art, sports, or otherwise.

Ron and/or Scott are available to speak to audiences because they want to help others  identify their passions and priorities by using exercises and lessons directly from their book; ones they practice every day.

Carson and Ford can also discuss the following:

  • That business (money) is only a tool to get what you want out of life
  • How to change your mind set about profit
  • To a financial advisor: “If you don’t wake up tomorrow, would your firm be the one you want managing your family’s wealth?”
  • How to pare back distractions to have more freedom to enjoy what really matters
  • The six pillars that Scott Ford organizes his week around
  • How to build a Brain Trust of powerful people, organizations, and resources

“The Sustainable Edge: Fifteen Minutes a Week to a Richer Entrepreneurial Life was written for business owners who are seeking a fuller, more rewarding work-life balance. In this easy-to-reference, practical guide authors and entrepreneurs Ron Carson and Scott Ford share personal anecdotes to their own career successes. Each chapter is designed to inspire entrepreneurs to define and sustain a competitive edge in the complex, fast-changing world of business”
