    The Go-Giver a Great Read

    The Go-Giver a Great Read


    The other day my friend Mark Crall gave me a little red book, he said it was a gift with only two stipulations.

    1.       I had to promise to read it

    2.       I had to give it away when I was done reading it

    Well I never read anything but technical manuals and how to books, but I respect Mark’s opinions so I took it and agreed to the stipulations.

    This was a wonderful little book about business and life theory and I found myself thinking as I read it, this is how I live my life, until I got to the fifth law. Did I mention the book promised the five laws to the secret of success? That was where I completely broke the model. So I will go about adjusting my business/life model. But in the mean time I cannot recommend in strong enough terms that you go out and read this little book. I promise it will change your life, for the better.

    My hats off to Bob Burg and John David Mann, for taking the time to put these simple truths down in this little red book “The Go-Giver”.

    You can find it at

    And you can follow the movement on Bob & John’s Blog

    Coming up on the July 7, 2009 Triad SBS Group meeting, Detective Daniel Horne from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Dept., Cyber Crime/Computer Forensics Division will be coming to speak with us on tech crime issues that we may run into as IT Professionals and how to handle them to protect ourselves. Detective Horne is also a member of the USSS Electronic Crimes Task Force.

    Are you aware that if we know about crimes being performed on a PC and don’t report them correctly we can be charged with a crime as well…  Knowing how to handle a “questionable” situation becomes most important according to the crime. He will speak to us and take a Q&A to help us be better prepared for items we are subjected to.
