SWIM! Book

A fascinating story about the power of networking, connection, and mentorship 

Written as an engaging parable, Swim! How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentoring, and Next Level Success brings to life real-world challenges (and their solutions) and presents them in simple, yet powerful terms. The book explores the vital importance of networking, explores the steps that lead to successful networking, and explains why we need it. 

Swim! dives deep into the concepts of mentorship and the power of human connection. While too many business leaders spend their time obsessing about facts, figures, and the bottom line, it is more important for them to learn to manage relationships. Once attention shifts to relationships, businesses and careers can reach the next level of success. Written by a leading motivational speaker, this book offers ideas that can be applied to both personal and business life.

  • Understand the importance of establishing habits and rituals
  • Tap into the power of a positive mindset
  • Discover the value of teamwork
  • Learn to use intentional language about workplace culture

Swim! is an entertaining book that highlights the significant concept of connecting and building relationships and includes the tools needed to become more self-aware about our roles and contributions in our industries.

The only thing disappointing about this book is that it doesn't come with a video of Walter delivering his 'Swim' message live. This little book contains some pretty big ideas and gives the reader a new 'model' of looking at success. The 'Sucker Fish' analogy is a prime example! What I love about this book is that it contains simple truths about success and life delivered in an original form to help 'transform' how you see yourself and those around you.

SWIM! is a powerful book about the changes that can happen to anyone of us, if we only let ourselves be open to them, learn to keep looking forward and upward and help others along the way. Walter Bond has an excellent way of portraying how your mindset can make incredible changes in your life and to others. I read this book twice, laughed, cried at the same place twice, and each time I read it, I learned more greatness. Ready for read #3. A Winner!

SWIM was the selection this month for our virtual book club. I have had the priviledge of seeing Walter in person, and his personality comes through in this timely parable. You come to the realization that at times in your life you have been the shark, the suckerfish and the parasite. Scotty was Drew's suckerfish, and learned his lessons well. You can see the lightbulb come on for Paul as he learns about the Sacred Six through Scotty's story telling. This will be THE graduation gift this year for my nieces and nephews. An inspiring read.

It was a great read. Easy to follow and you didn’t want to put it down. I loved the whole “ Shark and Suckerfish” concept. Heartwarming for the underdog making it big, with love of family and friends first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Which one are you?

Saw the author speak at an event, very motivating. Book starts a little slow but kept my attention. Good lesson in shark, sucker fish, and parasites analogy.
