One of the most influential people in my life has been renowned author and speaker, Tim Sanders. In his book, “Love is the Killer App” he talks about living life as a “lovecat.” It’s an iteration of the Golden Rule that suggests we allow love into our business life – and life in general. Tim contends that sharing knowledge you’ve gained with others is a great place to start in our quest to becoming a lovecat.
Being that it’s Christmas time, I thought I would share some knowledge…and support some of my friends at the same time. I’m fortunate to know quite a few folks who have written some pretty great books. Here is a list and a brief description of each. Hopefully one of these books will be just the right fit for that special someone on your list!
This NY Times Bestseller is a must read, especially for business folks who do anything even close to networking. Tim teaches a refreshing approach to business relationships. I’ve used it and it has changed my life, will be part of my legacy and has had a positive affect on my reputation.
How many of us dream of dropping everything and going after “that thing” in life that we feel called to do? Michael did it…and has changed the world in a positive way for all of us. Michael is the founder of “The Kindness Center” and gave us this incredible roadmap for how to do good in this world. His story is incredible and his message is clear. Any and all can benefit from this easy, fun and refreshing read.
A wonderful children’s book based on a concept Oie introduced us to in his first book, “Being a Sharefish in a Selfish World.” One of the most genuine and sincere people I’ve ever met teaches our children how to be kind and how to share in this beautifully written book with Disney-quality illustrations. My kids love the story, as well as the fact that all proceeds go to Oie’s non-profit that supports a village in Honduras – www.sharefish.org
