The Go Giver

The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be.

One day, desparate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by many devotees sinply as the Chairman. Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of successful ‘go-givers’ who teach him how to open himself up to the power of giving.

Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving – putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives – ultimately leads to unexpected results.

This revised and updated edition includes a foreword by Arianna Huffington; a new preface; a Q&A addressing some of the many questions about the book the author has received from fans and a reader’s guide.

      Hi Lainie,

      I’ve read the Go-Giver and it really made me think about my own business.
      I can’t expect people to buy something from me if I don’t give them some great advice and make them trust me.
      I do it too, I visit a website, see a product and if I don’t know the person, I don’t buy.
      But if I have a relationship with this person because they added value to my life I will buy the same product from this person.
