Being Nice Does NOT Mean You’re A Go-Giver

Earlier this week, I wrote about offering free coaching calls.  At the end of the post, I mentioned that there was no catch.  “I’m just someone who loves what they do and understands the value and benefit of applying The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success.” Based on some of the feedback I’ve received, I feel […]

The Bracelet Isn’t Magic, But The Awareness IS!

I am currently enrolled in a Prosperity Coaches training which involves wearing a blue Abundance Activist™ bracelet, similar to a Livestrong bracelet.  Every time I GIVE or RECEIVE something, I switch the bracelet to the other wrist.  It may sound silly, but doing that simple action has had a dramatic effect on my awareness of […]

I’m A Blogger And Today…A Bragger!

I’d like to share a story that literally sat me back in my chair and made me say “WHOA!!!”  It has kept a big smile on my face (even when I got my butt kicked in tennis!) for over 24 hours now.  It’s a story of living a dream and almost forgetting that you dreamed […]

It’s Not About Me

So this is…..interesting. As I sat down to write this post, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to write about.  I have some spaces left for a workshop that starts this week, and thought I should write about that, as a way to attract participants. I noticed that I had an untitled “draft” for […]

Not The Usual Serenity Prayer

Yesterday I had the pleasure of receiving an unexpected email from a great friend and mentor, Carol Gates.  Carol is the President of Bob Proctor Coaching and we became fast friends almost five years ago.  After enjoying her message, I noticed a previous email from her, where she reminded me of a quote she liked […]

Turn Your Mind Into A MASTER MIND

Back in the early 1900’s, Andrew Carnegie (the richest man in the world, at the time) commissioned Napoleon Hill to interview 500 of the richest, most successful people on the planet; people like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, The Wright Brothers, John Rockefeller.  Carnegie wanted to know what, if anything, these people had in common.  After […]

I WON!!! Even Though I Lost

The 6 winners for The Go-Giver Thank YOU Contest were announced a few days ago, and….drumroll please……I was not one of them…. YAY!  Actually, I did win, big-time!  I just didn’t receive one of the official prizes. Several reasons I consider this a win and here they are, in no particular order: Drumroll please….oops, sorry…keep […]

Lesson Learned…Face Red, But Lesson Learned

Here’s a good lesson I learned this week: Don’t assume that people will know you are kidding.  Here’s what happened. I entered a contest, where you had to make a video, telling how the principles of the book “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann, have affected your business.  The week before, I […]

Go-Givers Really DO Sell More

You may already know that I am a huge fan (and…ahem…Certified Go-Giver Coach) of “The Go-Giver”, by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Although this post is a story of how I bought an iPhone, it’s more a story of a great salesperson demonstrating  “The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success.”  So here’s what happened…
