157: It Shall Be Done – Peter Kyne’s “The Go-Getter”

This is a classic motivational story. It was written in 1921, so while some of the language and superficial means of doing business are slightly different from today, the core focus of the story is just as relevant to us today.

It’s about tenacity, overcoming obstacles, not taking “no” for an answer. And if you must take “no” then you go for the next best thing.

I don’t know how many times I’ve faced a difficult situation either in my personal or professional life and I’ve thought about William E. Peck and the character, integrity and persistence he showed while procuring that blasted blue vase!

It’s a mainstay in my reading rotation and I hope you’ll listen and enjoy as well 🙂

As a bonus, you can download both the print and audio version of the book FOR FREE just by clicking here.

Enjoy, my beautiful musicpreneurs. May you be inspired by it just as I have been for nearly 20 years!
