Business Books

A few years ago I had been working to build hyper-local professional networks. The biggest one I had created was Linking the Triangle. Before it was acquired, I had grown it to over 17,000 members. Along the way, I learned that it’s so much better to give than receive. This is probably the most important lesson I could have learned. It didn’t take much to figure it out. I simply continued to follow that good feeling I got every time I heard that I contributed to a success of a member.

While I was on this journey, I became aware of an audio book titled “Networking with Millionaires” by Dr. Thomas Stanley. After reading the synopsis I figured I would get it and give it a listen. I got about 30 minutes into it and I was hooked. Dr. Stanley starts by talking about the success of an investment broker that goes from zero to hero simply by helping people in a specific industry and becoming committed to them. Along the way, this broker builds a network of very wealthy professionals that’s needs extend beyond his services. To me, what was so incredible about this story is how simple it is for someone to do this. I know it is because I have been a part of a very similar scenario.

I highly recommend that you get this audio book, “Networking with Millionaires.” You will be motivated and infused with new ideas like you never have been before.

  • Super proud of what Dylan has put to work from what he has learned from his baseball coaches. His work and the work put in by his team mates has proven itself at this baseball tournament. Go South Wake Lightning!
  • Happy 14th Birthday, Dylan! We love you so much. You're growing up so fast. This year is going to a big transition year as you go into high school in the fall. An exciting journey is ahead. We will be here for you along the way.
  • Dylan was super excited to get a new bat bag for his birthday today. But it's not just any bat bag. It's a Boombah!
  • I love working in Downtown Raleigh. There's the right amount of things happening all around you. And if you take a moment to look up, there's this incredible blue sky above.
  • Gavin had a number of hits this weekend at the baseball tournament this weekend. But this is just the beginning of his baseball story.
  • In so many ways Baseball is like life. It's unpredictable, requires practice, has winners and losers, and needs players to work together as a team.
  • Acres and acres of tobacco just after a heavy afternoon rain storm. It's a sight to see when you're driving home from baseball practice.
  • Gavin had his last home baseball game of the spring season. Here he is with Coach Charles Chrismon. His 8U team won all but one game this season. These kids have developed so much over these past few months thanks to the coaches and parents who want to help these kids find their love for baseball. I hope they keep playing. Baseball offers a lot to teach them about life.
