“All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”
~ Bob Burg
I had the privilege to talk with author and world-renowned speaker, Bob Burg. Bob has authored several books, including the national best seller “The Go-Giver”, which he co-wrote with John David Mann.

The Go-Giver is a lesson we can all learn from. In the conversation, Bob talks about the 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success and how they all revolve around adding value to others.
Many people fall prey to working in their own self-interests (a Go-Taker). Bob turns that mindset upside down and talks about working to serve others first. In addition, one of his core messages is being receptive to making a lot of money as a result of the value we provide.
Here are Bob’s 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success:
- The Law of Value – Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
- The Law of Compensation – Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
- The Law of Influence – Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
- The Law of Authenticity – The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
- The Law of Receptivity – The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
I hope you enjoy. Here’s a quick video that gives a great summary of the Go-Giver philosophy as well.
