“Darryl Lyons is a rock star in the financial world, and he’s built an incredible team and business that’s helping a lot of people. This book is the playbook for how he did it–and how you can do it, too.” – Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host “Darryl Lyons is a rock-star business leader that successfully blends the values of his faith with the pressures of running a business.” – Roger P. Whitney, The Retirement Answer Man

Review: A powerful, practical and profound book, Darryl Lyons' Small Business Big Pressure: A Faith-Based Approach to Guide the Ambitious Entrepreneur, is a must have.  Small business owners often become overwhelmed and confused as they try to balance building their company, managing their employees, loving their family and embracing their spirituality.  Though many business speakers, coaches and books remove or leave out the spiritual perspectives in work and business Lyons has done the complete opposite.  Interwoven throughout the four main parts to Small Business Big Pressure, prayer and God's support will be discovered by readers in their destination, their dollars, their dialogue and their overall personal and business identity.   
Darryl Lyons' faith in his religion and Christian beliefs is brilliantly evident in his book.  At the end of each section, Lyons shares an action item that correlates to the practical and enlightening business advice explained in that segment.  Included as a part of the action item, readers will find a prayer to help them successfully take said action.  Small Business Big Pressure lays out Earthly and practical components to build and captain a fantastic entrepreneurial ship while fully embracing the reader's faith and dependence on God.  Yet, Lyons expresses that the prayers are not meant to be "God, Help me!" prayers, but instead are "designed for the entrepreneur to be completely dependent on the almighty Creator as the Source."  Small Business Big Pressure will undoubtedly help you reveal your destination, embrace the spiritual aspects of money, develop beautiful and powerful communication throughout your company, and craft an identity that you, your employees and your clients will deeply love.
