John Fugelsang “Some people, like Bob Harris, had other ideas.  A successful TV writer, who’s job writing for ForbesTraveller.com gave him the chance to review some of the most luxurious locations around the world.  Bob hit it big as a contestant on Jeopardy, winning over $350,000, but rather than sit at home, Bob decided to get active, investing in more than 5,600 business in 67 countries through micro loans…..”

Fugelsang “What drove you to try to meet the people who’s lives you’ve touched?

Harris “I wanted to know if it worked.”…….

Fugelsang “What was one of the crazier experiences you had, actually going out there to meet people?”

Harris “The most important experience I had, came down to 5 words that a guy told me in Lebanon.  He had his whole business destroyed in the war where Hezbollah and Israel recently went to war.  He’d lost everything, and I asked him if he was angry at Hezbollah, at Israel, at anyone?  And, he looked at me and he said, this was his absolute truth, and these are 5 words that, if there is anything that this book is about, this is what stuck with me.  He looked at me and said, ‘you love more, you win.'”
