Synopsis

This classic motivational parable (over 500,000 copies sold worldwide) shows you how to make your own opportunities in life. Ever since its first printing in 1921, The Go-Getter has inspired employees and entrepreneurs to take initiative, increase their productivity, and excel against the odds. In this audiobook, Bill Peck, a war veteran and double amputee, not only fights to find employment, but continually proves himself more than competent at the many difficult tests that are thrown his way. Peck persuades Cappy Ricks, the crusty founder of the Ricks Logging & Lumbering Company, to let him prove himself with a sales assignment that everyone knows can only lead to failure. When Peck, to everyone's surprise, beats his quota, Ricks hands him 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 his career as a successful manager. In a time when jobs are tight and managers lack the time 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 wonderfully read parable, employees at all levels will learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.
