An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break and contains 3-5 practical steps you can take to move closer to your dream life.
Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others. - Booker T. Washington
Bringing more interesting, supportive, and healthy people into your life is a key component as we go after our dreams. In this episode, we talk about how to connect and bring these people into your life and gain their support for the life you crave. During the conversation we share how we stay connected with our growing network in addition to constantly looking at how we can connect them to other people/opportunities.
We are honored to have Bob Burg join us to talk about success and the importance of shifting your focus from getting to giving. As you build your network think first about how you can help others and what you can provide to help their needs. This shift will greatly improve your relationships, grow your network, and provide you with greater happiness in your life. You can download the first chapter of Bob’s book, The Go-Giver, at Burg.com. In addition, take a look at this video introduction to the book:
