An Arizona graphic designer named Jamie Denke wrote about The Go-Giver on her blog, and gave us one of the nicest compliments any “business writer” could hope for:
“I can’t stand business books, but really enjoyed reading this one.”
I posted a comment on her blog thanking her, and here is her reply:
“Thank you so much for commenting on my blog — I really, truly loved your book.
“I work at a hospitalist company in Arizona, Apogee Physicians; we staff programs for hospitals of internal medicine physicians, then take care of everything for our doctors.
“Our CEO, Michael Gregory, M.D., read your book out loud to all our program director physicians at a meeting. The response was very positive and they asked for their own copy to share, so Dr. Gregory purchased The Go Giver for all of his home office staff (over 60 people).”
First IT guys, then lawyers, now doctors. Joe and Pindar seem to be marching steadily through the professional world, profession by profession. Who’s next?
Flight attendants, that’s who. This week Heather Poole, blogger extraordinaire and creator of “Galley Gossip: Confessions from the Jump Seat,” wrote about The Go-Giver in her blog:
“There’s something kind of nice about actually getting to know the passengers I serve, even the demanding ones … I don’t know why. I try. All of this made me wonder, am I a ‘Go-Giver’? … The five laws of stratospheric success describe just about every flight attendant I know.”
She then goes on to offer a contest to her readers. To enter: simply post a comment on her blog. The grand prize? A copy of The Go-Giver.
Thanks, Jamie, Dr. Gregory, and Heather Poole!
Wonder what profession we’ll hear from next . . .
