“Company Aquisition”

Featuring David Rothacker

Intro: Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity with your host David Heimer.

David Heimer: Hi, this is David Heimer. Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity. I invited Dave Rothacker back for another book discussion. And this time I just wanted to check in with him and find out what he’s read lately that has been good, that he thinks would be useful for us. And I do this because Dave is incredibly well-read. He might read more business books than anyone I know. But in addition to reading, Dave has a great background. He is an author, a coach, a consultant, he’s an advisory board mentor for Service Nation Alliance. He writes for Comanche marketing. He writes a weekly Saturday rabbit hole for Service Roundtable members. That’s really fascinating to read and he blogs some great stuff that Rothacher Reviews. So Dave, welcome back. It’s always great to talk with you. Tell me what have you been reading lately that we might be interested in?

Dave Rothacker: Absolutely. Thank you, David. The book that I’m reading right now, the title is “Big Potential” and I’m calling it my 2018 book of the year.

David Heimer: You’re already calling it {inaudible 01:10} Wow.

Dave Rothacker: Yeah. Now that may change, I can’t see it though. Matter of fact, and not only is it 2018 book of the year, but it probably is in my top 10 books of all time right now. Book is by a gentleman by the name of Sean Achor. And I should say that I was hipped onto this book by a fellow Service Nation Alliance member, Keith Hart. Keith has a connection with Sean and he graciously got me an autographed copy of the book. And I really value that and thank Keith for his gift. I think Potential is a book written about working with others to achieve success and the author, a lot of what he’s written is you can find it based in the science of positive psychology. And he references a lot of the more renowned people in that field throughout the book. But the basis of the book is that when we help others, the way we help others, the way we help others achieve success, it kind of works in a circle or a loop.
