Seeking a way to be more proactive in times of change?
Need to prune some areas of your work and life that are growing out of control?

Getting the Blue Ribbon is a step-by-step guide to take your work and life to the next level. It offers a sensible ideology you can apply immediately and improve your current situation.

The engaging story centers around John, a man who knows he has too much to lose if he does not improve as a manager, spouse, and father. After visiting his sister, Tara, at her apple orchard, John begins to discover a powerfully practical way to get the results he has failed to grow in the past. He quickly realizes that whether the goal is a successful career, a meaningful life, or even growing award-winning apples, letting something grow on its own rarely brings the desired result.

In Getting the Blue Ribbon author and internationally-recognized speaker Jones Loflin has delivered a warm and captivating message for anyone seeking to create and manage an environment ripe for success. After reading the book, be prepared to experience the thrill and sense of accomplishment that comes with getting more award-winning results.

Jan Karmes
A unique and entertaining tale of change, growth and results. Perfect for anyone needing new insights on building capacity in people, teams or themselves.
Jeff Mabe
Getting The Blue Ribbon is perfect for leaders and those who aspire to be leaders. They have the desire to achieve more and take on more responsibility, but don’t often have the foundation to manage the increased demands placed on their time and energy.
Lucinda Ehlen
Highly recommended for any person who is ‘stuck’ and needs inspiration on how to move forward in their work or life!
Meredith Carroll
Getting The Blue Ribbon is extremely beneficial to anyone who might be starting a new stage of life-whether that be college, a marriage, having a baby, or beginning a new career or promotion. Any one of these new stages can seem daunting and impossible. However, using many of the steps discussed in this book anyone can become organized and better positioned to achieve the award-winning results they are seeking in that stage of life!
Steven Raposa
A ‘spot-on’ formula for management success.
