Go Giver Gets Going at SMB Books

We've added a new book over at SMB Books: The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann.

This is one of Arlin Sorensen's current favorite books.

I mean real favorite. See Arlin's Blog Postings.

This book is subtitled A Little Story About A Powerful Business Idea. It follows in the tradition of The Secret by Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller and The Present by Spencer Johnson, both of which follow in the footprints of Og Mandino's The Greatest Secret in The World.

Each of these is a story -- a parable, if you will -- that lays down a few rules to govern your life.

If you follow the major blogs in our online community, you've met go-givers, even if they haven't read the book.

A go-giver is someone who actively seeks to help others. The result of this approach to business (and life) is that you fill your life with people who sincerely and honestly want to engage with you. I know from my own experience that I've made a lot of "just plain friends" through my involvement in the community.

Yeah, it might be good business. But it also makes business a lot more enjoyable!

Many of the Go-Givers in our community give so openly and freely that others cannot see the payback. They give to people who just need a little help here and there. And most of those people are not in a position to give something back. At the same time, there are others who want to engage with people who give freely to others.

The point is not to give with the intention of getting back. Rather, it is to give freely and openly -- and see what a great difference that makes in all aspects of your life.

Yes, the book contains the "Five Laws of Stratospheric Success." But the focus is not on greed, but the positive effects of giving.

This dandy little book will make a difference in your life. And it's only $17.95!

We've filed it under "Business" Books. It's not a technology book. It belongs in there will The E-Myth, Getting Things Done, and Relax Focus Succeed(R).

Available as a printed book or audio CD.
