PropertyNut gives more real estate marketing and advertising to it's Real Estate Agents, Brokers and their sellers listings than we take in payment. For 5 years this is who PropertyNut has been. For my 30 working years, this is who I've been. I didn't have a name for it, or a way to share it, until now. A Go-Giver. Thank you. After finishing the book, I emailed our entire customer base with this offer; PropertyNut will share this book with anyone. But our offer has a condition. Surprised? When you finish the book, you must share it, or return it. Our blog post on PropertyNut.NET has this email. Yesterday, a Realtor asked me, "why use you, what makes you better". I answered, "we work harder and smarter to give you more Internet visibility to sell or rent real estate. Most important, is that we value doing it all above what we are paid to do."
Owner, Financial Advisor
PROTEGRITY Wealth Management
I have been in the financial services investment industry for over 25 years. One of the greatest gifts of being in this business (sometimes it can be quite stressful with the ups and downs of the stock market) is to hear a client say these words, "You make my life better. You make me feel safe. I sleep better at night because of you." People are quite emotional when it comes to their money, and to know that I can have a positive impact on their lives is what really drives me. The Go Givers model is perfectly in line with my "inner being." It is easy to resort to the "old way" of looking for "buying signals"..but when you stop that, you stop worrying about buying signals, life becomes so much more enjoyable. I can already sense a more productive atmostphere in my business. I will post later about an "increase in business" that specifically traces back to a change in company phylosophy which is directly linked "Go Givers Sell More!
Thank you for this gift!!!

I will continue looking at opportunities to spread the go-Giver teachings and look forward to the next mountain I will climb as a Go-Giver Ambassador.

I was a school teacher for 10 years and have recently started in real estate. I was introduced to "The Go-Giver" by my managing broker, Joanne Doremus, last March as a result of Ninja Selling. I have truly loved reading the books, especially "Go-Givers Sell More" and I'm on my 3rd time around. I truly believe that by giving my life will improve and my business will be what God wants it to be...successful. I have already had more sales than I thought I would originally and am expecting many more. It is fun and makes work fun to know that I am going to work, not necessarily to make money, but to enrich other people's lives and help them achieve their goals...my compensation is secondary. It is awesome!!!!

Partnership for Cures
Partnership for Cures raises money to fund research that speeds life changing treatments to patients through medical research that can be quickly incorporated into patient care, often in two years or less. Most medical researchers look forward, asking the question, "What new things can I discover that might someday help patients?" Answering this question creates a significant amount of knowledge, but rarely creates solutions that impact patients. Partnership for Cures asks the question: "How can we use what we've discovered in the past to help patients right now?" Answering this question creates significant patient impact that can often be translated to even more diseases and patients. Typical Partnership for Cures projects include finding new uses in other diseases for existing safe and FDA approved drugs, devices, or other non-drug therapies; adding new elements to or current therapies; and testing anecdotal successes from clinical practice, including integrative medicine.

As a business leader, coach, mentor, and change agent, I have seen these principles work in my own life and in the lives of others.

The Photographic Journey
A journey, begun by Yolande Brugman, a woman with purpose and a sharp eye for the finer detail, that most eyes miss.
Yolande, an excellent photographer, but also a mother of 2 beautiful young children, an ex-model and being married, gives her the full spectrum of understanding and knowledge of what it's like to be on both sides of the lens - therefore offering a more comprehensive understanding to those being photographed.
Working sometimes in conjunction with her husband Rey, gives her the opportunity to be able to have two photographers working on one job - but with two different perspectives, locations and angles. Both of whom are prepared to travel if and when necessary.
The Photographic Journey specializes in Weddings and Family albums, also with a focus on Kids and Pets. To compliment this, Yolande also does specialist nude photography for pregnant women in her studio or at the clients home if necessary.
We work closely with our client and / or bridal couple to make sure we fully understand their needs - and we will do a walk-through of the wedding 2 weeks prior to the actual day - to ensure that our lighting is correct and we have a good understanding of what will happen on the special day.
With a wealth of experience, we at The Photographic Journey, would like your experience with us to be a special one and hopefully a continuous one, as we journey through life together.

I won a copy of "The Go-Giver" as a door prize at a BNI meeting. It sat on my bookshelf for about a year before I read it. I kept hearing the title in various social circles, so I decided to pick it up one day. Once I understood the concept of the book, I vowed to read and incorporate one law each day as I read the book. When I finished the book, I went to the bookstore and bought 10 copies and sent them to people who I believed would benefit from the message. Since then, whenever I run out of copies, I order more and give them out periodically when I run into a person who has not read the story and really needs to.

The book was suggested reading at a marketing seminar I attended. I had been carrying out its precepts all of my working life ~ my detractors say that I'm 'working for glory' but I have found that in the long term I always receive more than I invested. In any event, giving, whether it's a kind word to a beggar on the street or a piece of business advice or lead always makes me feel great, so why stop?

I read a lot and I have to say that the Go-Giver touched me on a profound level and I am a TRUE ambassador and believer! I have passed my book on to so many people now that I am going to be buying 10 copies to hand out. If you follow the 5 laws on a daily basis - your life WILL change. Mine certainly has.

I read The GO-GIVER in December 2011. This book empowered me to take the next step in my personal and professional career. I shared the book with my husband of 21 years. He in turn shared the book with his colleague as did I with the purchase of additional books. I am in the unique position to share my knowledge of this powerful business idea with my franchise owners and our staff and clients. It gives me great joy to see the enlightenment on the faces of all who read this "little" story. As I continue to spread the word about how I believe in The GO-GIVER's message I notice how my relationships have deepened and grown. With three teenagers in our home, this book has been required reading! I can't say enough about this book. I love its message and endeavor to shape our company to be known as The GO-GIVER's in virtual officing. Shifting our focus from getting to giving is a nice way to live life and conduct business. The secret is truly to stop keeping score. Keep it simple... be a GO-GIVER!!

I've read countless business books and parables over the years. As wonderful as most of those books are, I always tell family and friends that there are only TWO books that you actually need to read and apply to your life.
The Richest Man in Babylon and The Greatest Salesman in the World.
Well now, I finally have a third book to add to that list.
The Go-Giver is a book that should be required reading for everyone.
I offer health insurance products to individuals and families. I often recommend my clients to read "Babylon" and "Salesman".
I will absolutely recommend The Go-Giver to all family, friends and clients from now on.
Thank you for a gem of a book!

I read about this book in 2008, and was so moved by it that I started recommending it to my members and friends. Bob and John wrote a beautiful modern-day parable that is the perfect antidote to the current economic malaise. I've probably purchased and given at least 50 of these books, and will continue to pass the word along as often as possible. Bob and John's uplifting and motivating message is a gift in itself.

I had previously read Endless Referrals and have referred to it quite frequently. Am a huge fan of The Go-Giver and would love the opportunity to be a personal walking ambassador. I'm involved in a number of networking organizations, including BNI, CBN (Catholic Business Network), and Perfect Networker.
I have been using the Go Giver Book to motivate Recruiters and get critical appointments with heads of companies so that I can present myself for possible employment. It does seem to be turning heads. But the most impactful is the ability to share with with Church Youth leaders and watch as they teach it to our next generation. I fully believe in the butterfly effect and wonder sometimes what I may have energized by sharing this work of art.

Tech Smart Agent University
After reading this book, I was left with only one wish - that I could have read it MUCH sooner in my life. As a past CEO/founder of a technology company, and now as a Realtor, it is clear to me that living my life in alignment with the 5 laws can only make my life that much more rewarding and successful. The best part is that all I have to do is focus more on giving.
Sometimes the best lessons are the hardest to learn.

Changing Matters LLC
Selling Newspaper Subscriptions for the Charleston SC Newspaper at 11 was Steve's first experience in sales. This led to reselling soft drinks and candy to fellow students in 8th grade. After college, Steve spent 14 years as a telecommunications salesman. He was blessed to consistently rank as one of the top salespeople in his company and despite many obstacles, never finished a year below 110% of Senior Account
Representative quota. An experience with Stage 3 Malignant Melanoma in 2000 led Steve to ask himself, What do I want to leave as my legacy? A desire to serve others and to help them become the best they can be was at the top of the list. Thus Changing Matters LLC was born. After almost 10 years, when the 5 year survival rate is less than 30%, Steve is further emboldened to leave his world better than he found it.

Personally speaking, The Go-Giver was a rare and well-timed find - all about things we should know and do; written in a great way that speaks to the values and heart of the reader without being soppy. Thanks so much - you wrote this book just for me!
I read it for the first time in the exact week when I founded my young company on big dreams and strong values. It provided confirmation that I was on the right track and not living in lala land for wanting to do real business with my values at the centre of my firm.
Wow. What a fantastic book. I finished the book in one day and was mad it was over. Then I went back and really dissected it. I plan to give it as Christmas presents to my clients. We have several businesses including Mahogany Outdoors an organization that takes people fishing. We have a nonprofit that works with inner city kids the Mahogany Youth Corporation. I also am a Realtor. We are very involved in the community. Our businesses started taking off when we changed our focus to serving the community. We decided to focus more on the nonprofit and helping the kid's fish and learn life skills to stay off drugs and out of gangs. We give each child a rod and reel to keep and our only request of them is that they pass what they learn on to their friends. Check out our websites www.mahoganyoutdoors.com and www.MahoganyYouth.com.
My goal is to live a life of purpose and significance through making an impact in the lives of others. How wonderful to find a business success book that aligns with my values. Thank you so much Bob and John for sharing your gifts with us to make the world a better place thorugh businesses and individuals that focus more on giving and serving.

UV - Ultimate Variety Radio
I'm the owner/operator of an Internet radio station. It started out as a hobby, 4 years ago. I'm also an independent distributor and team leader in a network marketing company. I've heard "The Go-Giver" mentioned several times by leaders in that company, but I already had a list of other great books to read, so I kept putting it off. Then, I started hearing it mentioned in other networking circles. Last week (8/11/10), I'd heard enough and purchased the book. I read it last night and loved it! It was such an easy read with a simple message. I look forward to applying it to both of my businesses, but especially the radio station since the daily sponsorships I'm implementing are a completely new aspect to running the station. Thank you, Bob and John!

Wheeler High School
I began reading "The Go Giver" early January in hopes of finding a book read to give to all of our seniors in the school community. This book truly inspired me to remember, in parable format, the importance of the "Golden Rule." It was one of those WOW moments that hit me to truly remember what is important in life. My athletic director (former English teacher) and I will be teaching the principles of "The Go-Giver" to all of our senior students through discussion during their resource period this year. We will follow up with a celebration and "giving" them the book as they graduate. Thank you to "The Go-Giver" team for making such a positive impact on our lives.

Jayme W. Gooding
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
I am very passionate about serving those around me, and believe that I do more than just sell houses! My clients are the first to say that I am a relationship builder that happens to provide a value added service.
However, I became very discouraged after another professional told me that I will never be successful because I am too honest and give away too much information. It really made me question the path that I was on.
Well another colleague recently suggested I read The Go-Giver. Once I started, I couldn't put it down! I was so INSPIRED because I realized that I AM A GO-GIVER! I AM the Realtor with a heart to serve... "The Missing Piece to Your Real Estate Puzzle."
Thank you for allowing God to use you to enlighten others on how the power of giving can touch so many lives! The Go-Giver is truly a blessing!
I own a small computer consultancy called DownHome Computers. I received this great book from a friend and peer in the SMB Space Mark Crall who I am sure got it from Arlin Sorensen. I have spent the last 18 or so years of my new life helping folks, and giving to the SMB community I love, even being recognized for a number of years by Microsoft with their MVP Award. It seems I fit the persona as the collector, with one exception; my main take away from the read. I completely missed the fifth rule. I thought I was doing a good thing turning down folk's offerings, not realizing I was actually impeding their success. I will try this new insight, but in the mean time I have to be me, I just got done on Amazon.com buying a few copies of The Go-Giver to give away at my next IT Pro Group Meeting www.tSBSg.org

I love serving (giving to) others, it's how I'm wired. After starting my business though all the network groups seemed to be focused around "how can I get this person to do business with me". While I understand that as a business owner your sales are vital to keep the store open, I was just not comfortable in that setting. Thankfully one of my business leaders mentioned this book which I read within a week... and felt like I had found gold. Go Giving is how I feel life (& business) works best... by giving! LOVE these books and I am compelled to tell everyone about them!

Inside Outside Fitness Training
Hi, my name is Don Harris, owner of Inside Outside Fitness Training. I know that health clubs can be a very intimidating place. I should know, I worked in them for years.
Gyms can be especially intimidating if you don't feel like you know what you're doing. All the machines, all the free weights and all the fit people that seem to fill up the gym can make you feel overwhelmed and self-conscious.
That's why in 2008, I opened Inside Outside Fitness Training. So you could come and feel comfortable with a one person training session or small group of like minded people, indoors at your house or outdoors in the fresh air and get the one on one attention you need in order to start on your fitness program.
Inside Outside Fitness Training was created to empower, educate and motivate people who are ready to make a change and live a strong, healthy life in the body they always wanted.

This book and its parable has had a major impact on my life. It is not often that a business book can cause a reader to make behavioural changes, but this one has for me.

This is another example of God's laws being put to the test with the final results being outstanding.

As a personal development addict for over 20 years I have found "The Go-Giver" to be the most important material of our time. I believe we can start a movement that can literally change the political landscape in such a way that we can transcend political parties by creating an agnostic movement which would reduce government dependency.

Home Companions of Lake County Inc
I saw the Go-Giver at a Barns and Noble in The Villages close to where I live. As a caregiver, I thought the title described me very well. I brought the book home and planned to read it when I had time. A few weeks have gone by and today I took the time to read it and when I finished I was nearly in tears...I was excited and dumbfounded of how much Joe reminded me of myself! I had this wonderful resource in my hands and didn't see the value. I can't believe how pure and simple the five laws are! I am telling every one I know about the Go-Giver!

Kernacopia is a full-service marketing group whose passion and strength is creative problem solving. Not much of a reader per se, I have to admit, The Go-Giver captivated me last spring. Each member of our team read it as well and all were equally enthused after doing so. Since then it has been a staple item in our office. In fact, we have given over fifty copies away to clients, friends and other business acquaintances and have applied the principles taught in The Go Giver to our business model. The results have been amazing, to say the least! This year (2009) has been one of our most benevolent years ever and in spite of the fallen economy, has been one of our best ever - we are up 20% from last year. Fun, amazing and filled with blessings! Read it. You'll be glad you did!

I work in an industry wrestling the way to work with the five laws. Although I just read the book, I have been exploring them for years just not knowing how they fit together. One thing in my journey that does connect these laws is storytelling. My thoughts are stored here. http://newbrandstories.wordpress.com/
I have worked with marketing and relationship selling throughout my career. I have read both books and am grabbed by the way you managed to emphasize a better way of doing business. The authors address the single greatest tool for success in business and in life. I have based my biz and private life on similar principles and am now a true ambassador of the go giver concept.

This past Christmas 2008, my Master Mind Group Leader presented everyone within our group with a copy of "The Go-Giver". I managed to get it read quickly, and it was fundamental in how I began to view my business as not only a Virtual Assistant, but as a Wife, Mother and a Woman.
Now this may sound silly to some, but when I got to the end of the book, I had to wipe tears from my eyes, as I saw how the principles within the book, not only changed the characters life, but it affected so many around him. I desire within a year to not only have the same experiences within my business, but be able to help others follow the same path.
I have recommended this book to several of my clients, and my plan for 2009 is to apply each and every rule, daily to my life.

I have lived most of my adult life with the premise that you do for others. Knowing that there is an entire force / energy out there believing as I do in the work arena, just makes it even more fun.
It wasn't until I read the book, however, that I realized that I wasn't open to receiving. I put a lot of positive "Go Giver" energy and belief out there naturally, now I know it is okay to take some back when it is given.
Thank you Bob!

AGAPE Planning Partners
It is our mission to help people create "true wealth" through effective stewardship strategies. As a financial planner, I have always been taught that wealth only comes through acquisition (stock market, 401k, real estate, get get get)... and never through giving. That was "counter productive" to building wealth. In the last couple of years this thought process has taken a 180...and this book couldn't have been timelier. Thanks for putting these principles into a format that could be understood by many. I plan to share them with everyone we meet in our goal to create "true wealth"!

I read this book in 1 day. It is such simple truths, yet so powerful. Its message touched a place deep within me - a place that knew of these truths but needed to be reminded.
Home buying and selling really have very little to do with the house, and much to do with connecting with people.
Thank you for the inspiration to serve and to further God's kingdom by doing so. I look forward to the shifts that are already beginning and to purposefully making a difference in peoples' lives.....just because.
I'm telling everyone about this book!
Send out Cards
Relationship Marketing Consultant, assisting others to express gratitude in their business and personal life.
Most people just laugh when they hear that the secret to success is giving... Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were.
The majority of people operate with a mindset that says to the fireplace: 'First give me some heat, then I'll throw on some logs.' Or that says to the bank: 'Give me interest on my money, then I'll make a deposit.' And of course, it just doesn't work that way.
What you focus on is what you get. Ultimately, the world treats you more or less the way you expect to be treated.

What an awesome book! Loved every page. I look forward to sharing this book with others and also implementing the principles that it teaches.
My focus is revealing a wonderful tool for health that anyone, regardless of age, can take advantage of. The product is a little yellow pill called Protandim. Made from only 5 different herbs, it equips the cell with full protection against free radical damage 1 to a million. Antioxidants, however, can only protect a cell 1 to 1. It's my desire to share this amazing discovery to as many people I know, so quality of life can be found for all.
For me, this book embraces everything that is right and true about being a responsible and caring business owner.

It works. That's all I've got to say. I ALWAYS walk away from these appointments feeling GREAT!

A good friend, and business partner, of mine sent me a video message late last night. He was sharing with me his emotion after reading this book, It was the most genuine message a person has ever sent me. I went out to pick up "The Go-Giver" the next day to better understand his feelings, and WOW, my life has been changed forever! I thought that I was good at networking, but have now realized that I was doing it for all the wrong reasons. This book has allowed me to see clearly for the first time in my career, and from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Bob and John for their giving of this amazing gift.

Just finished The Go-Giver and loved it! I saw a gentlemen in the seat next to me on a flight recently reading it and felt compelled to order it from my BlackBerry moments before the flight took off. Coincidental? I don't think so. Inspiration? Absolutely! It is how I live my life. Knowing that all things that show up, show up for "a reason, and right on schedule" as Dr. Wayne Dyer says.
If you would like discuss moments in your life that have caused you to "expect the unexpectable" send me an e-mail. And if you have need for large volume direct mail production, call me, and again, "expect the uxexpectable"!
The Go-Giver was referred to me a couple of months ago from a millionaire friend I admire. When I found that Bob Burg co-authored the book I couldn't wait to read it having attended one of Bob's seminars a few years ago and loving the information he presented. I sat down on a Sunday afternoon and read the book cover to cover and started telling everyone about it! I will continue telling everyone about it and will re-read it frequently!

Why is a bald guy in a blue house giving away money?
I have received many miracles this past year. I am forever grateful for all of the teachers who have come to me at my right place and at the right time . They all incorporate giving into their lives.
It is my dream to show the world how giving can unite us. I want the world to see how an inspired bald guy, in a blue house, with modest means, can give away a million dollars!
But it is more then just giving a million dollars away. It is also to say thank you to all of my wonderful teachers. Learning...Enjoying...Sharing
Refresh & Renew, LLC
I consumed "The Go-Giver". The premise of the book is as 'refreshing' as its authors. I met Bob Burg on Oct. 30 in Florham Park, NJ and was taken by his genuine kindness. Those who attended his seminar, "Endless Referrals" learned techniques for receiving a steady stream of referrals. Upon reading "The Go-Giver" I'm encouraged to give an ocean of referrals. I plan to give this book to everyone on my Christmas list this year, to many I do business with and to those I hope to collaborate with.
Reading this book has encouraged me to proceed with a personal dream I've had for nearly 4 years. It is called "Boomerang Blessings." It was the confirmation I need to pursue all that this program is meant to be. Many thanks!

"The Go-Giver" book was so touching, I have read it several times over. I couldn't help but encourage a group I mentor to read it. They have, in turn ordered the book by the case to give away. I would say that this book left a mark on my life, but watching it touch other lives has been the biggest, most greatest joy. It is exciting to watch others learn and grow, and in turn get to share this wonderful resource. In two weeks, I am going to host a new group of agents in our firm that are extremely talented, however many are exhausted from the current market. The topic...this book! We are giving a copy to everyone that doesn't have one, and are confident it will be a great way to end the year.

Stawicki Financial Strategies
Like many, I read "The Go-Giver" in one sitting and haven't stopped promoting since. I have bought 90 copies over the past 2 years and love to give them out to people I meet as a way to bless them. And blessed they have been! When I ask my clients how I may help them, I truly want to have in my "tool box" exactly what/who they need. I truly believe that I can better help them if I know that the "tool" that I give them is not only the right "tool" but will be a "tool that I would use as well". I love to connect quality people with quality people. This past year, I started a network group that is based around the principals outlined in this book. Every month by hosting this event, I am not only providing a place for this connection to take place, but we have all been so blessed by the relationships that have been developed and business is happening as well. Thank you for your work gentlemen. You deserve all the success you are getting.
Athletic Director/ English Teacher
Wheeler High School
My principal, Don Gandy, asked me to read The Go-Giver to see if it would be a book our seniors would "buy" into. Fifty-five minutes later it was a no-brainer. Our seniors will be "gifted" with a copy of the book and Mr. Gandy and I are team teaching the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success. The best compliment I can bestow on Mr. Burg and Mr. Mann is that I have personally purchased copies for many of my friends and fellow athletic directors in hopes that they, too, will become "Personal Walking Ambassadors." This book should be in every high school classroom.
I'm a wife, mom of 3, and Girl Scout leader. I've spent the last 5 years in the network marketing industry with a company that offers botanically based health & wellness products. My focus has been on teaching women how to look younger & and achieve overall wellness, by knowing how to choose healthier products for their bodies and families. While health & wellness is important, my biggest passion is helping others achieve financial security and freedom through a business that excites them, uses their gifts, and earns them real money in a reasonable amount of time. I believe that we have a responsibility teach our children through example that they don't have to settle for the status-quo if it doesn't make them happy, that they have a responsibility to live the life of their dreams and have financial abundance, by sharing their talents & gifts with others.
Biz Market Master
As a result of the influence of "The Go-Giver" I have recently turned a hobby of mine, creating websites and capture pages, into a business. Liking what they saw, my friends asked if I could make them one too. I gladly did without a second thought. Well..their friends were so impressed that of course they wanted one too. :) With the beginnings of my "feeding frenzy" of referral based customers, I decided it was time to open the doors to my new business called "Biz Market Master." I'm having a ton of fun doing what I love and helping many others to "receive" what they want through "giving" superb value and service at a very reasonable price while still making a nice income for myself on the side. :) I am proud to be a Personal Walking Ambassador of "The Go-Giver" as well as Bob and John and am proudly spreading the message of "The Go-Giver"!

And of course, I am planning to gift this book to a few of my friends soon.

For decades, I have been looking for a niche in the market whose time has come. I have known that I wanted to help people but, until Ameriplan, had not found the my niche. I just started with Ameriplan and believe that I can help millions of people who need help with taming medical expenses. With insurance and medical expenses out of control, I believe that discount medical can start the snow ball of competitive medical services into motion.

My life was filled with more questions than answers. What is my purpose? Will my life be an acceptable example for my children? Can I financially support my family? I have read many business books, most of which were incredibly boring. Then one day I came across a little book called The Go-Giver. After reading your book I finally had some answers! I learned that helping out others is really for YOUR benefit, not theirs. It is great to sleep in peace every night!
My company help seniors stay at home as long as possible. Providing them personal care, and providing families peace of mind. I enjoy helping others get the most out of life!

Web Success Visionary
Alisha TV is my name, and helping people Tell Their Story and promote their business is my passion. The TV actually stands for Tell UrVision. My friend Heather O' introduced me to Bob Burg and his 'little red book'. I was like ...YES!!! Finally, someone else on the planet believes in this too, Wow! For me, becoming a Personal Walking Ambassador of "The Go-Giver" allowed me to point people in a direction, the business and motivation section of Barnes and Noble :-) Just like you, I too realized that this book was the validation I needed in my life, in one story, it explained why I am the way I am and why I do the things I do. I desire only to hire and to work with people who are Go-Givers in Life!

Henry D. Williams
The Go Givers Business Network
I am an Insurance broker and what I have leaned in the book I encourage and pass it on to others to do the same. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. Everytime I visit a restaurant I will asked for the owner and informed him/her that they must always give more for less. In my business it is a must to do what the book says. Great writing guys. I have registered another company, The Go Givers Business Network. In this network I want to expose other members of the group to act like a go-giver.

3:16 team REALTY
I've come from many real estate training philosophies and for many years, wrote myself of as mediocrity. But when my friend gave me this book to read, I felt so alive that it gives me a sense of hope. That I can become me and sell very successfully in real estate.
The first 2 laws have the most impact in my life right now (September 2010).
I never view competition the same again too.
I pledge to be a personal walking ambassador in my life and in business. Thanks for the opportunity.
