Book Review of “Love Is The Killer App” by Tim Sanders

October 14th, 2011 by under Diane's Book Reviews. No Comments.

In “Love Is The Killer App,” Tim Sanders talks about a topic we, as small business owners and entrepreneurs don’t hear about very often and talk about even less…love, related to business.  (if it makes you more comfortable, you can substitute the word caring, charity or compassion for love.)

Tim defines love in business as the act of intelligently and sensibly sharing your intangibles with your partners.  He talks about this from the perspective of basically 3 things:

  • Knowledge
  • Network
  • Compassion

Tim Sanders talks about this concept as being a “lovecat.” And, he says that means you offer your wisdom freely and you give your address book to anyone who wants it.  He says it’s about compassion and the willingness to demonstrate your humanity in your business and around the office.

We no longer live in world where the sharks, piranhas and barracudas can dominate and ascend in the work environment.  Instead it’s about helping others grow and be the best they can be – this is what we often refer to the know, like and trust factor…take one step higher.

What “Love Is The Killer App” is really talking about is networking and connecting people in your network on a deeper and more involved level than most of us do now.

I could go on and on and reveal the ways you do this, but this book is worth reading for yourself – actually it’s one of the ways “Love Is The Killer App” talks about spreading the love – through reading and then sharing what you have read to others who are in situations where they need the concept or the idea.  Tim Sanders goes so far as to recommend you send people books (and idea I love, by the way and have done many times…and I love receiving books as gifts too) that you talk to them about or that you think can help them.

Read this book, if you haven’t already and come back and let me know your thoughts – it will be well worth the little time it takes to read.

In the meantime, I’m going to out and practicing being a lovecat more and more. Why don’t you join me?
