One of the best things that you can do is engage in personal development. There are approximately a bajillion books out there to target mindset and know-how. Here’s my top five list of books that impacted me in 2017.
Book: You Are a Badass
Jen Sincero states things how they are, in her book, You Are a Badass. Her frank, straight-forward manner tells you to relax; embrace your inner badass that is dying to get out. While there are times when you think how in the world did she luck into all this?, the reality is that Jen Sincero is the epitome of a badass.
Book: Leaders Eat Last
What does it mean to be a leader? Simon Sinek’s treatise on being a leader is probably the ultimate book in what it means to be a leader. Most of the case studies are about military leaders and how they have led tight-knit groups that would follow their leaders through anything. Servant leadership is the heart of this book, and if you lead any kind of team, this will inspire you for years to come.
Book: Big Magic
Sometimes the universe speaks, and you just have to be ready to hear it. That’s big magic, baby. In Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert weaves a tale of a life ready to accept the magic that is all around us; ready and waiting to change the world. It sounds a little mumbo-jumbo until the moment you relax and let big magic happen to you. Simply be ready and willing to follow magic as it happens and you will change your life.
Book: Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook
If you haven’t read anything by Gary Vee, just stop. Click here. Buy the book. Now. I’ll be here when you come back. Gary Vee GETS the world of social marketing, and lays it out. You’ve got to work that jab, jab, jab and catch people with the right hook if you want to win.
Book: The Social Organism
There is something absolutely hypnotizing about Oliver Luckett. I’ll confess, I had never heard of him before he came to work for LuLaRoe. Then I picked up The Social Organism, and it kinda blew my mind. His intellect is truly dizzying, as he helps lay the foundation for understanding how social networks work.
Don’t have a lot of time to read? Neither do I. I went through these using Audible while commuting to my part time job. Investing those hours spent in the car – as well as time working on my business – gave me magical time to listen to the masters speak. As a bonus, many of these books were voiced by the authors.
