    Everybody's Hugging!

    Anyone with clients (isn't that all of us?) can learn a thing or two from Tim Sanders. In "Killer APP" he digs into his experience with high-profile clients to show how the "art" of building client and business relationships is actually a science that anyone can master. Truly a great read for anyone who is looking to expand who they know and what they can offer.

    A Book That Can Truly Change Your Life

    When you go to business school you always hear your professors lecture about fairness and goodness in business, but when you read the newspapers you hardly believe that those words could ever really apply to the 9-5 world. This book takes you from the abstract idea that you can be both a good person and a good businessperson and shows you exactly how to do it. Be a lovecat, the book explains, by sharing your intangible values--knowledge, network, and compassion. Be a lovecat, and your career will rocket up to the stars. In other words, as the book's conclusion explains, nice smart people really do succeed. This book shows you exactly how. Read this book and profit.

    Nice Smart People Succeed

    Tim Sanders has given business people a gift in this book: a wake-up call (or for some of us, a reminder) that Nice Smart People Succeed. His 'Lovecat Rules' emphasize sharing your Knowledge, Network and Compassion in a non-expectant way (that is, without requiring anything in return) -- in doing so, you create a personal brand identity as a trustworthy source of wisdom, connections and goodwill. Each of these commodities is in short supply in business, and so you inevitably gain a competitive advantage over people who are stingy with their ideas, their contacts and/or their emotions. Tim also emphasizes the practical aspects of these rules. Gain knowledge to share, he advises, by becoming an avid reader of business books, leavened with some spirituality and human potential titles. Be smart in your sharing by setting ground rules, especially if you're sharing with someone who may be a competitor. Don't force more 'bizlove' on anyone than that person is capable of assimilating, but do test their comfort zone. Tim is a marvelous presenter of these ideas in person, and it's a joy to find that he expresses them equally well in writing. I recommend that you buy this book for yourself -- and maybe even send a copy to someone who needs reminding that business is conducted between and among human beings who respond better in the long run to love and compassion that to cutthroat competition.

    Spread the Love

    Tim hits the mark, dead center! Since listening to his book on CD, I have been living the principles daily, and reaping the rewards. The principles and concepts are so simple it is incredible. And, yes: Nice, smart people do win!
