I had the pleasure and honor of interviewing Dave Ramsey for Insider's View, a show that runs on Tennessee Public Television, in front of an audience of about 600 students. We talked about his own entrepreneurial experiences and his advice for others on their entrepreneurial journeys.

Here are a few summary highlights:

Dave said that there has never been a better time than now to be an entrepreneur. Out of the disruptions in the economy comes opportunity.

He is worried about the push toward socialism in this country, but confident that the American entrepreneurial spirit will persevere.

(Thanks to the Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont University for inviting me to conduct the interview).
