Orrin Woodward's Leadership Blog Joins Alltop List

Orrin Woodward's Leadership Blog joins the Alltop List.

I discovered some great news today. Guy Kawasaki’s new site Alltop has included this leadership blog in its Alltop Leadership category. This blog is listed just a couple of sites below Seth Godin’s blog! I have followed Guy Kawasaki since his book Selling the Dream. Over a decade ago, I bought this book because I loved the title. After reading it, I thought the content was spot on also. We need to sell the dream to people and then teach them how to accomplish that dream. I believe strongly in the principles that Kawasaki teaches in the book on evangelizing your products and services. The best products in the world without a passionate and enthusiastic community to share the benefits with others will not succeed. If you don’t believe in your product, how can anyone else? Guy has succeeded in many endeavors by focusing not just on making money, but in making an impact in our society. Kawasaki’s mission ties right in with the Team’s goals of Having Fun, Making Money and Making a Difference. I am not sure how this blog was selected for the list, but I am honored and will continue to provide first rate leadership teaching to the incredible reader audience on this blog. When Chris Brady and I wrote our book, Launching a Leadership Revolution, we had no idea that it would hit #1 on the Wall Street Journal best seller list for two weeks in a row. But I do know that a key ingredient was the evangelizing from our blog audiences. More evidence that a committed minority can make a huge impact! Enjoy your family time during the holidays and set a Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 2009. 2009 is the year to shine! God Bless, Orrin Woodward
