I read this book by Bob Burg and John David Mann back in December, 2010 and it rocked my world. The pressure the main character was under in the beginning was something I could immediately relate to so I was hooked right away. The age old question in business: How do I stare down the financial pressure long enough to settle into a career that I can LOVE. One that I will never feel the need to “retire” from… As The Go-Giver imparted an “immunity” of sorts to that pressure, I was invigorated by the ideal of enjoying that immunity by focusing on others and giving with reckless abandon.
Their follow up book Go-Givers Sell More continued my momentum. Letting this mindset take root in my soul gave me a renewed zest for helping people and enjoying life without the feeling of having to hold on so tight. The answer to my “Contribution Question” is falling into place. What a gift!!
