Video Book Review: Uncertainty by Jonathan Fields

blogging-tipsUncertainty was published in September 2011 and when author Jonathan Fields emailed offering to send me a copy I nearly fell off my chair with joy.

But it never arrived so, since I am a big fan of Mr. Fields (here we are at BlogWorld in 2010), I picked myself up again and bought a kindle copy. But I really don’t like reading online so I finally got hold of a hard copy of Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance late last year.

What I love more than money and anything else is people.

I love finding out what makes someone tick, what motivates them and why they do what they do. I love connecting with and helping people.

I’m fascinated by people from all walks of life and I’m giving myself permission to indulge that because if you focus on people instead of money, succeeding in business is a much easier and rewarding path to walk.

Now, instead of trying to bend myself to the rules of business, I follow my heart.
