    Fascinating interview. I stumbled upon this blog while looking for more information about the Amish and their success in business. What a find!

    There was an article in CNNMoney.com earlier this week that stated the Amish have a 95% success rate in business, compared to 50% for the rest of us. After reading the article, I wasn’t surprised at all.

    I wrote a blog post called “What Can We Learn About Business From the Amish?” asking people about the principles we live and work by. I so agree with Dan about our “calling,” and living it out 7 days a week. Life is too short to spend trapped in a job you hate, and there’s no time like the present to do what you were gifted for!

  • Hi Michelle! Glad you found me here, and glad you like the interview with Dan. I really appreciated his refreshingly straight answers.

    And I actually came across your post already a bit earlier–thanks for taking an interest in the topic!

    Fascinating interview! I totally agree with everything Dan says here. I was raised Mennonite, my parents were raised Amish, and many of my relatives are either Amish or Mennonite, so I guess the values rubbed off.

    I launched my own small business, Sheaf House Publishers, with the same feeling that anything is possible with today’s technology. I’m running it out of my home office, and although we started just before the current recession began and have consequently had some struggles, working from home and using freelancers has made a huge difference in our survival. We’re now snaring some great projects and I feel really good about our chances for success. So to anyone who’s thinking about starting their own business endevour, I say go for it!
