“We judge others by their actions, we judge ourselves by our intentions.”—Stephen Covey
Giving is a powerful philosophy for business and for life. Put simply, if you give more, you get more. There is no better investment you can make in your business, your relationships, or your character. Give in slices, and it will come back in loaves!
In this episode, Brian and Joe delve into more guidelines, tips, and strategies for giving your way to greatness. You’ll learn why people crave attention and respond so well when you pay it to them, how you can give someone the benefit of the doubt instead of jumping to judgment, why being respectful is one of the keys to building successful relationships, and how an attitude of gratitude can transform your life and be the most powerful gift you give to both others and to yourself.
