It seems like just yesterday but it’s actually been 10 years. In fact, exactly 10 years ago today Bob Burg and John David Mann’s book, The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea was published by their amazing publisher, Portfolio (Penguin-Random House, but only “Penguin” back then).
Since then it’s been through a number of printings, an Expanded Edition (same story, of course, but added the Discussion Guide and Q&A sections), in 21 languages, and has sold just over 800,000 copies. A Teacher’s Guide and two additional books in the series were also published.
Here are some of the awards and recognitions The Go-Giver book has received:
- Axiom Business Book Awards (Gold Medal)
- 2017 Living Now Book Award – Evergreen Medal for Personal Growth
- #10 on Inc.’s Most Motivational Books Ever Written List
- HubSpot’s 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time
- Wall Street Journal bestseller
- Inc./800CEOREAD bestseller (multiple years running)
We Thank You!
All of us at TEAM GO-GIVER thank you, our loyal readers, friends, and ambassadors who have bought the book, given them away, and enthusiastically spread the word about the book and its message.
Without you, The Go-Giver Movement would never even have gotten started, never mind grown to the extent it has.
From what we hear the book has made its way into boardrooms, sales organizations, sports teams, religious institutions, book clubs, family discussions and—as we always love to hear—classrooms.
So, we want to let you know how much we love and appreciate you, and are forever grateful for you!
And, you know what…we’re just getting started! Between The Go-Giver, Go-Givers Sell More, The Go-Giver Leader, and the soon-to-be newest member of the family, The Go-Giver Influencer (April 10, 2018), we’re going to keep the momentum going.
More than ever, people are open to the idea that moving from a “Me-Focus” to an “Other-Focus”—creating value for everyone whose lives you touch—is not only a more personally satisfying way to conduct business, but the most financially profitable way, as well. And it ain’t a bad way to conduct one’s personal life, either.
We invite you to join the Go-Giver Ambassadors Facebook group to connect with like-minded and like-hearted individuals from around the world by clicking here.
Happy Anniversary to you, and to all of us. Because we are all…TEAM GO-GIVER!
