If you own a business, lead a business, want to own or lead a business someday, or are in sales or business development, then The Fast Growth blog is a must read. And that’s why today’s #FollowFriday is Doug Davidoff.

I met Doug on Twitter more than a year ago and, when he was in Chicago last fall, we met in person. He is great fun – he has a big personality, he’s strongly opinionated (which I love), and he is, by far, one of the smartest people I know (without the ego to go along with it). We quickly became real friends and then decided to work together, as well.

If you can get Doug on the phone for an hour, he’s worth his weight in gold. He is brilliant, when it comes to helping you course the future of your business and your sales/business development.

In fact, I don’t recommend you just follow him and read his blog. I recommend you find a way to hire him. Now. If you can’t do that, you can have a piece of him and his thinking through his Demand Creator webinars. I’ve not attended any of them, but if they’re half as good as he is on the phone, one-on-one, it’ll be worth your time and money.

P.S. I get no benefit from recommending Doug…other than him saying, “Aw shucks, Gini. Thanks.” And maybe he buys me a glass of wine next time he’s in Chicago (hint, hint).
