“As long as you’re trying to be someone else, or putting on some act or behavior someone else taught you, you have no possibility of truly reaching people. The most valuable thing you have to give people is yourself. No matter what you think you’re selling, what you’re really offering is you.”
Bob Burg and John David Mann, authors of The Go-Giver
This week I have something very exciting for you! Your Chooseday video is from a conversation I had with Bob Burg, author of The Go-Giver, and Hems Thakrar and Nish Shah, directors of Amani Finance here in Perth.
It all started when I won the Nifnex 100 Influential Person award in Perth. Amani Finance was one of the sponsors, and the director, Hems, got up to speak. He talked about this book “The Go-Giver”. I took a video of him talking about it because I knew how delighted the author, Bob Burg, would be, to hear how his work is impacting on people in Australia. As a business coach, I know how much I love knowing my work impacts on the success of others!
We all like to know our books make a difference!
That night, I posted it on Facebook and Twitter and Bob responded almost immediately. As a treat for Hems and Nish I set up a Google hangout so they could chat to Bob and get to know him better. Bob Burg was extremely gracious and generous with his time – he is a true Go-Giver! I thought I would share this conversation with you too. Business coaches use his books as a guideline to growing and marketing successful businesses.
