The Go-Giver Influencer: A Little Story about a Most Persuasive Idea

The Go-Giver Influencer- by Bob Burg and John David Mann

  1. Master Your Emotions

Breathe. Set your feelings to the side. You can still have your feelings; you don’t even need to change them. Just set them aside for the moment. Don’t let them drive the car. Put reasoned judgment in the driver’s seat. Feelings in the passenger seat.

Retrain yourself to respond to conflict and disagreement by ruffling your feelings. Make calm your default setting.

  1. Step Into The Other Person’s Shoes

Listen. Get out of your own head and step into the other person’s perspective. See the world through their lenses. Appreciate where they’re coming from and what’s at stake for them. Listen with the back of your neck.

  1. Set The Frame

Smile. Take the initiative to establish the tone and context of the interaction. Whoever sets the frame of the conversation also sets the direction and tone in which it will go.

  1. Communicate With Tact And Empathy

Be gracious. Let yourself free what the other person is feeling, and speak to that truthfully, yet also with compassion.

  1. Let Go Of Having To Be Right

Trust. As long as your premise is that your position is the right one, and the other person’s is the wrong one, you have no chance of arriving at a genuinely satisfying solution. Sometimes you have to let go, and eat the pancakes.

And, surprise! You may find you have what you let go of.

Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills

People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.


Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.

It was hell.

After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.

Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
