Publisher's Summary

In The Go-Getter, Bill Peck, a war veteran, persuades Cappy Ricks, the influential founder of the Rick's Logging & Lumbering Company, to let him prove himself by selling skunk wood in odd lengths - a job that everyone knows can only lead to failure. When Peck goes on to beat his quota, Rick hands Peck the ultimate opportunity and the ultimate test: the quest for an elusive blue vase.
Drawing on such classic values as honesty, determination, passion, and responsibility, Peck overcomes nearly insurmountable obstacles to find the vase and launch hia career as a successful manager.
In a time when jobs are tight and managers are too busy for mentoring, how can you maintain positive energy, take control of your career, and prepare yourself to ace the tests that come your way? By applying the timeless lessons in this compulsively listenable parable, employees at all levels can learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.

Amazing.

Amazing story of inspiration and courage to go beyond the norm and be a go getter!! Thanks for a great read! Speaker was a little fast for some of the old English, but overall the content made me give it 5 stars!

Only you can choose to give up. Life offers one guarantee if you quit. YOU LOSE.
