Description

Product Description

From the bestselling authors of The Go-Giver, Go-Givers Sell More, and The Go-Giver Leader comes another compelling parable about the paradox of getting ahead by placing other people''s interests first.

The Go-Giver Influencer is a story about two young, ambitious businesspeople: Gillian Waters, the chief buyer for Smith & Banks, a midsized company that operates a national chain of pet accessory stores; and Jackson Hill, the founder of Angels Clothed in Fur, a small but growing manufacturer of all-natural pet foods.

Each has something the other wants. To Jackson, Smith & Banks represents the possibility of reaching more animals with his products--if he can negotiate terms and conditions that will protect his company''s integrity. To Gillian, Angels Clothed in Fur could give her company a distinctive, uniquely high-quality line that will help them stand out from their competitors--if Angels Clothed in Fur can be persuaded to give them an exclusive.

At first, the negotiations are adversarial and frustrating. Then, coincidentally, Gillian and Jackson each encounter a mysterious yet kindly mentor. Over the next week, while neither one realizes the other is doing the same, both Gillian and Jackson learn the heart of both mentors'' philosophies: The Five Secrets of Genuine Influence.

The story ends in a way that surprises everyone--and with lessons we can all apply in our efforts to resolve conflicts and influence others.

—Brandon Webb, former Navy SEAL, CEO of Hurricane Media Group and coauthor of The Red Circle and Total Focus

—Jacqueline Laurita, television personality ( The Real Housewives of New Jersey

“Burg and Mann have done it again. In an age where climbers are clamoring to become influencers, this book sums up what that really means and how to (and how not to) achieve it. Here are just three gems on replay in my head and heart right now: (1) master your emotions, don’t let your feelings fool or control you; (2) manipulation is never the way; (3) genuine influence will come when you are motivated not by gaining influence yourself but by others’ needs and want. This book is perfectly on time!”
—Carrie Wilkerson, author of The Barefoot Executive

1: Jackson

Jackson Hill looked like a man waiting to see the executioner.      “Are you sure you won’t have some coffee?” The young woman at the reception desk had already offered him coffee, a soft drink, and water, in that order.      “I’m good. Thanks, though.” He liked her energy. The nameplate on her desk said MIRABEL. Perfect, thought Jackson. That’s exactly what I need today. A MIRACLE.      He glanced at the wall clock. Ten after. Eleven, now. It had taken three weeks just to get this appointment. Three weeks he couldn’t afford to wait. And now the appointed hour had come . . . and here he was, still waiting. He suppressed the impulse to look at the clock again. After three weeks of waiting, another ten minutes—no, eleven—shouldn’t matter, right?      “Yes . . .” Mirabel was speaking into her headset now. “Okay. I’ll send him in.” She smiled at Jackson and said, “Ms. Waters can see you now. It’s straight down the hall, on the right.”      Finally.      As Jackson walked past her desk, Mirabel leaned forward a little and spoke in a stage whisper. “You’re going to love Ms. Waters. She’s really nice.”      Jackson hoped that was true.



As he took his seat, Jackson noticed a photo on Ms. Waters’s desk of a young girl (twelve, maybe?) curled around a beautiful Russian Blue cat, looking at the camera with big solemn eyes that said, This is MY cat. Nobody messes with MY cat. The elegant Blue stared at the camera, too, with haunting green eyes that said, This is MY human. Nobody messes with MY human.      Jackson smiled. Maybe this meeting would go well after all.      “So,” the woman said, still looking down at the papers on her desk. “Mr. Hall.”      “Hill,” said Jackson, already feeling defensive.      She looked up. “Sorry?”      “It’s Hill. Jackson Hill.”      “Of course. Mr. Hill. Jackson. So,” she sat back in her chair to give him her full attention. “Tell me about your business.”      Showtime.      “Sure. So, we started with our first line of dry dog food, five years ago. That was just for dogs. All different sizes and ages. And then within six months, we added a cat line . . . ,” and he went on, just as he’d rehearsed it, chronicling how over the past five years he’d built his fledgling business into a respected brand.      Of course, when he used the words “we started” and “we added,” he was really talking about just himself, Jackson, working solo in his cramped little kitchen, late into the nights and over long weekends, experimenting, crafting, adjusting. Only the purest, as his company motto went, only the freshest, only the best. Jackson had in every sense built his business from his kitchen table.      “Quite the entrepreneur,” said Ms. Waters.      He shifted in his seat, unsure exactly how to respond to that.      Jackson had never intended to be a business owner. All he wanted was to see animals have the best food to eat. He’d just had to become an entrepreneur in order to do it. Six years ago he was working a sales job for an electronics outlet (and hating it), cooking for himself, Walt, and Solomon. When he shared his natural dog food concoctions with a few friends who also lived with dogs, word got out. By the time he let go of his sales job to focus full time on his pet food line, he had more than a hundred customers—and that widely respected brand.      All of which could come crashing down exactly one week from today if he didn’t get this contract.      No, not could. All of which would come crashing down.      “So, you distribute to, what, now”—she was glancing down again, running her finger down the sheet at the top of her little stack of papers—“two states?”      “Three,” he said. “Almost four,” he added, and immediately regretted it. Almost four? What, like holding four fingers up high and proudly saying, “These many!” You’re in business now, Jackie, as Walt would say. You gotta act like it.      “Three,” said Ms. Waters, nodding to her papers. “Almost four.” She looked up and leveled her gaze directly at Jackson. “So tell me: Why do we want to carry you?”      Jackson winced. He knew she meant to say, “carry your products,” right? But intentionally or not, she’d certainly nailed it, hadn’t she. If—if—they gave him this contract, they would indeed be carrying him.      He took a breath.      “It’s simple, really. I love animals. Adore them. Big, small, two-day-old kittens, old hounds on their last legs, doesn’t matter what shape or size or breed or temperament, to me they are all, every one of them, the noblest, sweetest, kindest, most . . . well, most authentic creatures. I look at an animal like”—he almost said, Like your daughter’s cat, but would that be getting too personal?—“well, like any cat, any dog, and I think they were put here as emissaries of how we ought to be. Emissaries of heaven on earth.”      Ms. Waters smiled thinly. “Hence, the name.”      Jackson nodded. “Exactly. That’s how I see them.”      She looked down at the papers again. “ ‘Angels Clothed in Fur.’ ” And up again at Jackson. “A somewhat unconventional name for a business.”      “We’re a somewhat unconventional business,” he said, feeling defensive again. “Anyway, as I said, it’s simple. I want to reach more animals with the best the earth has to offer. Only the purest and freshest. That slogan—I really mean it. And if I can put my product in your stores, well, you can reach a lot more creatures than I can on my own.”      Understatement of the week. Smith & Banks Pet Supply, the chain Ms. Waters represented, had stores in every state coast to coast. A massive footprint. Or should he say, pawprint.      Ms. Waters glanced at her papers again, then back at Jackson and smiled once more, that thin smile that didn’t seem to give much away.      “Well, I’ve looked through the materials you sent, and I have to say it’s impressive. We like it, and we like you. We are definitely interested in the possibilities.”      Jackson’s heart leapt. He nearly leapt, too, right out of his chair. Impressive—we like it, and we like you. Wow!      Then his head caught up. Hang on, did she just say, “definitely . . . possibilities”? Wasn’t that sort of like saying, “For sure . . . maybe”?      “We think Angels Clothed in Fur could sit very comfortably on our shelves,” Ms. Waters was saying. “Just two points. You’d need to supply us on a national basis, of course. And we would want it to be an exclusive arrangement.”      Jackson’s heart stopped.      National?      Exclusive?      National distribution—that would mean he’d either have to ship his products clear across the country, which would be impossible, because part of his whole thing was their freshness and emphasis on locally grown ingredients . . . or he’d have to set up not one or two but at least a dozen separate production sites. Which would take an enormous investment. Which was completely out of the question.      And, exclusive? Pull out of all his existing clients’ stores? Turn his back on all those relationships? It hurt even to think about it.      “Okay,” he said, his heart racing, desperately hoping that she couldn’t see how rattled he was. “See, I was hoping to start out going into stores in four states, maybe five. I mean, that’s what we’re geared for at the moment.”      “I understand,” she said. “But you understand, we’re a national chain. Providing only the purest, only the best in these five states over here, but not in those five states over there . . . well, would that be fair to our customers?”      Jackson felt his face flush. Would that be a rhetorical question? he wanted to say, but he bit it back. Instead he just sighed. (Silently—he hoped.) “No, of course, I see your point. But I don’t see how . . .”      He stopped. How did he plan to finish that sentence?      The silence in the room felt positively chilly.      He had to say something, but he didn’t dare explain his actual situation.      Revenue from those early clients had allowed him take over an old out-of-business diner. With his own industrial kitchen, he had built out his pet food line and extended his sales to stores across the state. To extend that reach farther to cover three states—well, parts of three states—he’d had to set up a whole new separate production facility in the next state over so he could keep to his standards of freshness and local supply.      But setting up and running a new plant from scratch was a lot harder than he expected. The financing he’d gotten to do it was drowning him. The bank had been patient for a year, but now he had to bring his account current, or they would call the loan and shut down his operation. A week from today. There was no way under the sun he could come up with the cash—but if he could show up with a large purchase order from a major national company, he was betting, that would halt the process and keep his doors open. A contract with Ms. Waters’s company, in other words, might just save him from going under.      And at that thought, an idea slipped into his mind, so quietly that it took him a moment to realize it was sitting there waiting for him.      “I understand what you’re saying,” he said. “That makes sense. I see that. Of course, to scale up on that level, I’d need some assistance.”      For the first time since their meeting had begun, Ms. Waters looked ever so slightly taken off balance. “Assistance?”      “Well,” said Jackson, “the entire continental United States, that’s a good deal of territory. Our whole thing is fresh and local. That’s more or less the heart of the brand. The brand you’d be featuring on your shelves. We’d need to put in place a network of kitchens—production centers. We have several now.” (He had two, barely.) “To supply nationwide, we’d need to set up, oh, a dozen more around the country, I’d expect. A dozen at least. That’d take a little financing.”      He tried to say this all in an entirely neutral, casual tone. Oh, sure, a dozen plants across the country. What he was planning to do anyway. A little financing? Just saying the words nearly gave him a heart attack.      “I don’t mean you’d provide actual funding,” he added. “That would have to come from my own sources, obviously. But I’ve never gone into anything on this scale before. The only way it would work, I expect, would be with someone big, someone like Smith and Banks, underwriting it. Guaranteeing the loan, I mean.”      Ms. Waters regarded him with an appraising look.      “Right. Well, I can certainly run that past the Corner Office, see what they say. But to be honest, Mr. Hill, I can’t promise they’ll be friendly about the idea.”      Another chilly silence.      “Also, you said, an exclusive?”      She raised her eyebrows, as if to say, Yes?      “That’s . . . that’s a tall order. Right now I supply a lot of stores in our area.”      She said nothing. And?      “A lot of these small stores, these aren’t just clients, they’re friends. People I’ve known for years.” And without whom his business would never have gotten off the ground, he could have added.      “Of course,” she said. “You’ve got an existing pipeline. Agreements and contracts. We assumed there’d be a transition period. Time for you to fulfill your current obligations and gracefully withdraw from future commitments, work up new marketing collateral for our stores, and so forth. Say, three months?”      Jackson nodded numbly. Marketing collateral. He hadn’t thought about that.      Unexpectedly, Ms. Waters’s voice softened. “I know, it’s a lot.”      She was silent again for a moment—though this time somehow the silence did not feel so chilly.      “Tell you what, Mr. Hill,” she said after another moment. “Why don’t you go back and talk with your people, see what you might be able to work out. And I’ll go speak with the Corner Office here about that underwriting idea. And then we’ll meet again, okay? Say, next Friday, a week from today?”      A week from today. Exactly the words the bank officer had spoken to him that morning—only without the question mark.      He stood up, reached over her desk, and shook her hand.      “A week,” he said. “Thank you.”



You’ve got this, Jackson, he told himself as he slipped past Mirabel’s desk with a nod and a mouthed Thank you! (she was on the phone) and showed himself out the door. You are a successful businessman. You are going to close this deal. But it didn’t feel like he was going to close this deal. And he didn’t feel like a successful businessman.      He felt like a man who had just been to see the executioner.   

2: Gillian

Gillian stared out her office window, trying to see her future.      Ten long years she’d been here. She was smart, and she worked hard, but it had been a struggle just to get where she was. A buyer. “Ms. Gray Flannel Suit,” Katie would say, poking fun at her. “Ms. Mid-Level Executive.” Well, that’s what she was, and proud of it. Her company did a lot of good, and she was part of that.      But she was aiming higher. She wanted that Corner Office.      Everyone in the company knew that the senior VP of Distribution was about to retire. (It was the company’s best-kept secret, ha-ha.) Gillian wanted that spot. If she got it, maybe someday she might even run the company. Hey, why not?      If she got it, more to the point, she would command a salary that would let her put Bo in that school she wanted, and save for her college. And buy her a horse. And give her the world. Because the kid deserved it.      Gillian felt her heart lurch.      She turned back to her desk and pushed the TALK button on the office intercom. “Mirabel?” she said. “Could you see about getting me an appointment with the Corner Office?”      “Sure, Ms. Waters,” the voice said back. “For when?”      “As soon as he can see me,” she said. “Monday, hopefully.”      “We’ll give it our best shot, Ms. Waters.”      “You’re the best, Mirabel,” said Gillian, and she clicked off.      Only the purest, only the freshest, only the best.      When she’d said she was impressed with Jackson Hill’s company, she wasn’t kidding. His products were good—really good. She’d wanted to meet with him right away when he first contacted their office, but she’d needed a few weeks to research his company and his products. She bought samples, talked with customers, even went out and talked with store owners, including some of his oldest clients. The more she dug, the better it all looked.

The Go-Giver changed how I viewed success. It was a book that was practical, inspiring and, well, has the makings of a personal/business classic.
NOW, the release of The Go-Giver Influencer is simply changing the game. This book not only shares principles of how to succeed in today’s world, it does so in a way that also guides in:

1. Being more persuasive (not manipulative)
2. Handling conflict and resolving disputes
3. Negotiating collaboratively
4. Manifesting and building connections
5. Improving current relationships.

There’s so much I could go over, but honestly, the best way to experience a book like this is to simply order it and read it. I did. And I bought and sent 5 copies to my close friends and colleagues and they have already read the book and were of course, grateful for the gift.

If dealing with people in any kind of relationship is part of your business or personal life, I highly recommend this book.

It’s a short story with a long term impact.

As a 30-year business veteran, who thinks on occasion I know all I need to know, it is amazingly refreshing to read this book. I lost track of the number of aha moments while reading the book. Things I thought I knew turned into "I didn''t know that," and "now that makes sense!"

If you are just discovering Bob Bug and the Go-Giver series, you are in for a real treat. Written as a story, this book teaches more in a short amount of space than any business "how-to" book could ever aspire to do. Easy to ready, deep in it''s meaning, you will need to read it several times to fully appreciate the impact it can have on your business - and personal - life.

Order it today, read it tonight. Be blessed by its wisdom.

Thank you Bob (and co-author John) for another great gift.

Full Disclosure, I received an Advance Copy of the book to prep for interviewing both authors on my iHeart radio show. Loved the book so much I also bought a copy!

Once in a great while a book comes along that creates a change to the way we think and feel and live. Once in a lifetime that book creates a movement that stands the test of time and spawns more books that continue to shift us in ways we never imagined.

The Go-Giver, Go-Givers Sell More, The Go-Giver Leader and now The Go-Giver Influencer, by Bob Burg and John David Mann, are those books that have changed lives and businesses around the world and placed the term “Go-Giver” into the lexicon of everyday interactions.

When I first read The Go-Giver it felt like I had come home. Home to a place of like-minded people. With the addition of The Go-Giver Influencer I feel rejuvenated that each and every one of us can make a difference in the world in spite of how contentious the world seems to becoming. This book makes me wonder what the world could look like if this book got into the hands of not only every person in government but every child and adult and they acted on the content?

The Go-Giver Influencer''s simple yet powerful story provides strategies and tips on how to gain influence while staying in integrity to oneself and others. I have begun weaving several of the 5 Secrets of Influence into my daily interactions and have already seen shifts in interactions with others that previously often ended adversarial and had left me emotionally raw.

I highly recommend you purchase this book and share it with friends, family, schools, your local, state and federal government and even with your peers and "competition".

This latest book by Bob Burg and John David Mann is awesome! I love how they intertwine the principles they want to share into story form giving you examples of those principles in action without any fluff or unnecessary words.

I’m not going to disclose the 5 secrets here. If you want to “hear” them, you’ll need to meet Gillian and Jackson. I will tell you that it’s a book well worth your time.

As for me, I’ve used some of the secrets without realizing it and now because of this book, I plan on being more intentional so that I can do my part to making the world a better place for others.

Angels Clothed in Fur is at the center of this latest parable in the Go-Giver series by Bob Burg and John David Mann. As you travel along with Jackson Hill and Gillian Waters you will learn that influence is much more than what you might, before reading this book, understand to be simply a business negotiation. Once you learn this principle you will understand the Go-Giver Influencer principles and are likely to remember them because you will remember the story.

In case this is your first exposure to The Go-Giver the story or parable will keep you turning the pages and when you are done you will have learned some principles along the way you can apply in whatever your vocation happens to be.

If you are already a Go-Giver you will see some familiar characters in this latest installment in this series, be reminded of principles you have already learned, and add a few more to your knowledge base.

The principles you will learn inside this book are needed in today''s divisive world more than ever. I encourage everyone to get your copy today.

When I first read The Go-Giver, I experienced a transformation. I started to evaluate all of my human interactions and ask myself if I was approaching those interactions from a position of giving. Now, as I read The Go-Giver Influencer, I find myself once again reflecting upon the way we interact with each other. This book is making me think about how it’s possible to find common ground even in the most difficult situations--such a timely skill in our conflicted, polarized times...
Just like the other books in the series, The Go-Giver Influencer is not only a business book; it''s an inspiring masterpiece about ourselves and about life. I''m grateful to Bob Burg and John David Mann for another magnificent book. Five stars!

A wonderful and simple read about influencing the right decisions and actions. Told in a story book tale format that can reach and touch anyone who is struggling to make a decision or stuck in a corner.

"In sports, winning is about competition. In business, winning is about collaboration." Learning to work together to serve more people better is a winning business and lifestyle strategy.

"Smile". All things being equal, people like to do business with people they like. All things not being equal, people prefer to do business with they like.

"Empathy is feeling what the other person is feeling... empathy isn''t trying to figure someone out. Its not about reading the signs or analyzing the signals. Empathy is resonance."

A wonderful read to better understand feelings, and how people make decisions, and how to give better, to live better.

Buy this book. Share it with your team, especially if you are in sales or customer service. The strategies that Bob and John share are applicable to our personal and professional life.

I was initially surprised by the brilliant advice and strategies when the first strategy was to ''breathe'' I wasn''t sure and then I did it for a week, and they were so right. We all need to ''step into the shoes'' of other people. My work is in the area of attention and I love how thoughtful this book is, not just in the way it is written for the reader, but it is accompanied by a Q & A from the authors and even a discussion guide when you use this with your team or in your book club. I am a fan of Bob Burg and his work, this book might be one of my most fave in the Go-Giver series. Another best seller for sure.
