In 1937 a book titled, Think and Grow Rich was published that would go on to impact the lives of countless millions of people. But it’s what the author, Napoleon Hill, wrote 20 years BEFORE which is the focus of this episode. Bob’s featured guest, Jeffrey Gitomer, has very special insight into this topic. Jeffrey is known by many throughout the world as “The King of Sales.” Now that’s one amazing moniker. In his case, a well-earned one.
Entrepreneurship does two main things: It solves a problem for (or in some other way adds immense value to) the marketplace, and fulfills a need for the entrepreneur. In this week’s show Bob welcomes a true entrepreneur and connector, Glenn Garnes. Glenn Garnes is a retired trial attorney who made an important pivot from the practice of law into a mission-centered career around creating opportunities for others to invest in their growth through entrepreneurship and self-help education.
What exactly is Influential Civility? A lot more than meets the eye! Bob welcomes one of America’s Experts in Personal and Professional Excellence, Jan Goss-Gibson. Jan’s motto is, “Don’t just show up in life … Show Up Well!” Jan Goss-Gibson is the CEO of Civility Consulting, an Austin, Texas based global business training and consulting firm, and creator of the Show Up Well System for Professionals. The author of Protocol Power: 21 Days to Professional Polish, she was recently named America’s #1 Master Confidence Strategist. Jan and her clients have been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX networks nationwide.
Bob looked at those (seemingly) small, unexpected acknowledgements that can make a big difference in the lives of others. Aside from sharing some of his own stories, he also shared a one from the book, Free Throws for Financial Professionals by Mike McGlothin regarding a powerful, life-long lesson he learned from legendary Duke Basketball Coach, Mike Krzyzewski. And, be sure and take in the lesson that Jeff West learned from his one-time sales manager 30 years ago that forever changed Jeff as a father, and that would most likely affect the West Family for generations to come. It might be one of the most powerful stories you’ll ever hear.
