  • Quick anecdote about one of his heroes: Harry Browne.
  • #2 Law of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve, and how well you serve them.

  • #4 Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
  • Showing up authentically is great business.
  • Are you aware of your “assets of value”?
  • #5 Law of Receptivity: Great parable explaining this law. You cannot just breathe out nonstop.
  • Giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin; they work in tandem.
  • Bob and his coauthor received more communication about this 5th law than the others. Many said it’s tough.
  • Focus on the giving and allow the receiving. And you will live a life of abundance.
  • How does a person add value to others without costing too much money?
  • Technology has evened off the playing field.
  • When you sell on value, you are a “resource.”
