038: The Power of Giving a Unique Gift with JOHN RUHLIN

Today we get to talk with John Ruhlin of The Ruhlin Group. His company is trusted by all these top leaders of fast-growing companies (Chicago Cubs, San Antonio Spurs, Morgan Stanley, DR Horton, and more) to develop relationships and gifting strategies. We'll get into exactly what that means later in the episode.

But let me tell you that everything he's talking about today, WORKS. Whether it's a hand-written note, or a small thoughtful token of gratitude or even a super fancy expensive gift, being generous with your gratititude always works. Always.

John wrote this book called "Giftology" which has been featured in media outlets like Forbes magazine. The book is filled with case studies, stories, and ideas for how to give better gifts and as a result build better relationships. John's got some great advice for us today, AND a cool download with a list of the Top Gifts to Avoid Giving, which you can download right now by going to giftologybook.com/emily But that .pdf download will make a lot more sense when you hear some of John's story and my own experience in applying his ideas to my life.

Let's hop to it!
