Want more success? Then Keep Learning!!! Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful business owners are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there - the challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.
That's where Results 4 Business Book Briefs at Gravitate come in. This is going to be a regular event where you will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book...and get some ideas on how to start applying those to your business right away.
And the best part? You don't even need to read the book! We'll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You'll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like-minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!
Business school (and maybe common sense) would tell us that the secret to business success - more sales, more money pretty much more of everything is driven by being a go-getter.
Ambition, drive, the willingness to identify what you want and do whatever it takes to get it. Be ruthless, crush the competition - a no holds barred focus on what you want out of life.
But what if that's not the path to long term success?
A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea
Authors Bob Burg and John David Mann have written a powerful story that illustrates a different approach...one they call The Go-Giver. The story outlines and explains the 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success - that all revolve around the power of giving.
Many of the ideas in the book are counter-intuitive and presented in kind of a touchy-feely way. Despite the somewhat hokey story, the overall theme and philosophy of the book is very powerful, and it will challenge how you look at your business and how you operate daily. You may strongly agree with their approach, or you may strongly disagree, but either way, these ideas will make you think. The Business Book Review format is a perfect venue for a book like this - you'll not only get the key ideas summarized, but we'll discuss them as a group and talk through some great ideas and activities you can use immediately in your own business.

Who Should Attend? Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don't have the time nor the inclination to read...or just realize they will get even more out of the discussion of the material than just reading it (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!
How does it work? We'll keep it simple - come in at 4:00 p.m., Jen Mulliniks, owner of Gravitate will provide refreshments for us. You'll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and at 4:30 p.m. we'll dive into the review and discussion of the book.
About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion. We're limiting the group size to 30, small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.
We'll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you know now more...and will be more successful.
Complete Guarantee If for any reason you don't feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund...and get to keep your summary!
