    I really hope Looptail inspires other entrepreneurs to be social entrepreneurs like Bruce Poon Tip One of my favorite quotes from the book is Business continues to evolve in parallel to society We ve been through the stage in which businesses provided what the customer needed and through the stage after that in which they provided what the customer wanted Now, successful companies tell you why you should want to be a part of something bigger than yourself Satisfying an under explored human I really hope Looptail inspires other entrepreneurs to be social entrepreneurs like Bruce Poon Tip One of my favorite quotes from the book is Business continues to evolve in parallel to society We ve been through the stage in which businesses provided what the customer needed and through the stage after that in which they provided what the customer wanted Now, successful companies tell you why you should want to be a part of something bigger than yourself Satisfying an under explored human need the need to be good Being good is starting to matterWe want to have our cake and eat it to and not feel guilty about it In 2007 I started GEEO www.geeo.org , a 501c3 non profit organization that organizes travel programs for teachers and then helps them bring that experience into their classrooms In 2011 I met with Bruce and explained what we were doing A week later we formed a partnership with G Adventures that has allowed us to grow by leaps and bounds every year since After reading this book I can see why Bruce so quickly decided to partner with us We are another Looptail that Bruce has played a significant role in The typical teacher educates about 100 students a year, 3000 over the course of their careers The teachers that participate in our programs 800 so far influence and inspire their students to follow in their footsteps and become travelers themselves I am sure many of these former students will end up traveling with G Adventures, a perfect example of doing good creates a Looptail that is good for your business

    I got this book for free at a Travel and Adventure show some number of years ago and it sat on my Shelf, untouched until very recently I didn t really have any idea about what it would be about I had never heard of G adventures before the travel show, and although after, I had been to their website and seen many of the fun trips they offer, I didn t really understand that this would be an autobiography of the founder Luckily, this is exactly the kind of book I like It also reads like an auto I got this book for free at a Travel and Adventure show some number of years ago and it sat on my Shelf, untouched until very recently I didn t really have any idea about what it would be about I had never heard of G adventures before the travel show, and although after, I had been to their website and seen many of the fun trips they offer, I didn t really understand that this would be an autobiography of the founder Luckily, this is exactly the kind of book I like It also reads like an autobiography of someone whose number 1 thing is travel and not writing autobiographies Which I thought made the bookpersonable It covers everything from this Childhood and background to the founding of G Adventures up until the time of writing It did endure me to the company, and I do plan on taking a trip one day with them It was also interesting how a company could be so passionate about the industry they are in, yet also be so passionate about the employees they have, and about the communities, they interact with It s wonderful how they are always thinking about the communities, and the employees, both in the home offices and in the local tour areas I underlined so many parts of the book, that I m not even sure where to start I certainly have a lot to noodle on

    As a Travel Advisor who believes strongly in sustainable tourism, I m a big fan of G Adventures and frequently include them as an option when booking trips for my clients So I d been looking forward to reading Looptail for a long time I started it in Spring 2017 and got about halfway through Then I got bored, and it languished on my side table until November To be honest, when I picked it up again I skipped 5 or 6 chapters and went right to the last 2.Every chapter seemed exactly the same O As a Travel Advisor who believes strongly in sustainable tourism, I m a big fan of G Adventures and frequently include them as an option when booking trips for my clients So I d been looking forward to reading Looptail for a long time I started it in Spring 2017 and got about halfway through Then I got bored, and it languished on my side table until November To be honest, when I picked it up again I skipped 5 or 6 chapters and went right to the last 2.Every chapter seemed exactly the same Our company was doing great, we were growing, taking in XXX million, but I felt like something was missing So I a got everyone a few selected employees together and refocused our mission or b got rid of everyone and hired a completely new team I felt like I was stuck in Groundhog Day.I gave this book 3 stars 2 for a book and a bonus star because he founded G Adventures

    It s hard to enjoy a book when the main protagonist, in this case Bruce, is so clearly not enjoying himself Despite his constant bragging about company happiness stats and his new agey ideas about company culture, Bruce is never happy If employee happiness is so important, isn t he another employee of his company But anyway, I picked up this book to learn about running an alternative tour business I honestly didn t find it that helpful, as the scale of G Adventures is so huge and the problem It s hard to enjoy a book when the main protagonist, in this case Bruce, is so clearly not enjoying himself Despite his constant bragging about company happiness stats and his new agey ideas about company culture, Bruce is never happy If employee happiness is so important, isn t he another employee of his company But anyway, I picked up this book to learn about running an alternative tour business I honestly didn t find it that helpful, as the scale of G Adventures is so huge and the problems that Bruce faces are quickly unrelatable to the start up or small business I honestly can t recommend this book, and found myself somewhat turned off by the company and Bruce s humble bragging despite the philanthropy and admirable innovativeness

    Very interesting read Great to see how a business can focus on the customer and small little vendors in other countries and succeed Shows you don t always have to be all about the profits and instead can be focused on people Great read for anyone thinking about starting a business or how to help an existing business or department grow.
