Go For It!As a personal friend of mine, John Tassone has played a vital role in my life. I wanted to share his book with you so you could learn a little bit from him as well.

John Tassone was born and raised in Chicago. As a child, he had a newspaper route, shined shoes, and made deliveries for a meat market. Throughout high school he worked in his father’s hardware store. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Education at Chicago Teachers College (now Chicago State University), and then taught drafting in the Chicago public school system.

He later became a draftsman for U.S. Steel. While working there, John started selling life insurance part-time. After a year, he quit U.S. Steel and went to full-time insurance sales. He moved quickly through the insurance-company ranks, and became regional VP of the Chicago area. In 1976 he opened his own agency, Associated General Insurance Agency of Illinois. The broad knowledge he derived from forty years’ experience have made him a sought-after speaker. John and his wife, Catherine, live near Chicago.

In the author’s own words:


I’ve been in sales of one type or another since seventh grade. I sold newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, land investments, and insurance. I have almost every kind of sales experience imaginable. I’ve been in insurance for over forty years, traveling the state of Illinois, but mostly in the Chicago area. Besides selling, I’ve trained hundreds of new sales agents through classroom teaching and motivational seminars ;Today’s world is characterized by negativity. Too many people have lost sight of the positive. I want to teach people how to refocus, stay positive, and reach out for a better life. I wrote Go For It! to help those who read it feel better about themselves and the world around them. This book wasn’t written by some distant millionaire, but by ‘a regular guy’ who’s been in the trenches fighting the battles that life presents to all of us.
