Bob is an insightful, entertaining, bestselling author and speaker who motivates people to cultivate powerful alliances in order to grow their businesses.  In this very inspiring 3-minute video, Bob explains the secret to getting more.

Getting by Giving

He says the best way to get more is not to seek it. Ironically, Bob believes that the best way to get more is to give more. In fact, he has a name for a person who gives more: a Go-Giver. Bob believes in the importance of becoming a Go-Giver and acknowledging other Go-Givers in your life. In fact, he wrote an entire book about it. Who is a Go-Giver? A Go-Giver is someone who always adds more to everyone around them. Bob says they tend to live by five basic principles:
  1. Give more in value than you receive in payment.
  2. Serve as many people as you can – as well as you can.
  3. Put other people’s interests first.
  4. Give the gift of your authentic self.
  5. Always be open to receiving.

Go-Givers In Your Life

Your boss, co-worker, or employee? Your dry cleaner, personal trainer, or insurance agent? The barista at your café? A social media friend? When you think about it, you probably know many Go-Givers.
