A few weeks ago my friend Bob Burg, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Go-Giver, and I had a conversation about his fabulous book.
It was an irresistible opportunity to interview Bob, to talk about how the Go-Giver concept applies to consulting and to share that thinking with smart, passionate consultants like you!

Some highlights of our conversation (along with the time-stamp… though there’s no way to skip ahead):
2:40 – What Bob realized after an unsuccessful sales call “when the prospect just didn’t get it”
4:08 – “If you want to make a lot of money in business…”
8:30 – The transition between giving value and getting paid
13:20 – Moving from a “me” focus to an “other” focus
15:31 – Developing confidence
22:30 – Earning the right to receive, as a consultant
27:35 – How to be a Go-Giver even if…well… you’re not always nice
33:45 – A generous request from Bob
Enjoy the recording and, if you haven’t read The Go-Giver, I highly recommend you move it to the top of your reading list today.
