456: Bob Burg: Teaching Us All That Go-Giving Is The Way
My guest today the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who seems to me a person that the world knows and loves.
I have literally lost count of the amount of people that have told me over the last five hundred shows “Have you have had Bob Burg on?” or “There is this guy I know that you have to have on!”
Well, he is here now and with a background ranging from saught after speaker, best selling author, and advisor to businesses across the world, he is a man who has found his thing it seems.
Thriving in the corporate environment as someone with the answers that people are searching for and need.
But how did that thing become fully realised?
As when you dig back into his history it seems that it was there at the beginning, but with the creation of Burg Communications was the true starting point to where he stands today.
But there is never the case, and the path that seems so right is one that is hard earned.
Never being easily found, although it is always there waiting for that first step to be placed upon it.
So we will take him on a journey right back to the beginning before the best-selling books, and speeches in front of thousands of people whilst sharing the stage with notables including today’s top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes and political leaders including a former United States President.
We will try to find out what makes him who he is?
So without further a do, lets bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Bob Burg.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Bob such as:
Why the smarter way to success is to not invent the wheel time and time again, but to find a wheel already made and then make it unique.
Why he loves the definition of success stated by the words “the progressive realisation of a worthwhile dream or goal.” and what it means to him.
How he remembers his upbringing fondly, and was inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of his parents who created success from very little.
Why he feels that creativity can often be stifled by the fear of losing, and gives great advice how to overcome this state.
