on my bookshelf

I often get asked what I'm reading. Here is a short list of some of the most important books I've read that will make an impact in your life and the way you look at your work as a business.

Sometimes the audio book is so entertaining or has an extra pizazz that it's a shame to miss. I've noted when I think the audio book is the one to buy.

The Pumpkin Plan

by Mike Michalowicz

On your next driving trip or while working on something that doesn't require too much thought, grab this Audible book. I just happened to buy the audio for a trip and afterwards read the book and I can tell you that you'll never read it in your head in the hilarious and upbeat way that the author reads it to you.

Incredibly entertaining while teaching core business strategies for success. The fun format applies the same system to a number of different types of businesses which helps you see how they can applied in your own practice.



Profit first

by Mike Michalowicz

Another book by the extremely entertaining and wise author of The Pumpkin Plan. This book begins with highly enjoyable conversational and storytelling audio, but you'll get to a point when he goes deep dive into setting up your accounting and banking systems that will probably be most applicable to see the words and information in writing as it gets more complex.

So, if you feel like splurging you could do both the audio book and kindle or print to get all parts of your mind on board with this mind shift for business owners that guarantees financial success.



Building a storybrand: Clarify your message so customers will listen

by Donald Miller

I've been following Donald Miller for many years and participating in his online offerings as well. When he offered StoryBrand as a course I was an early adopter and then the book came out and I can say that it's a storehouse of information to learn how to market to your customer in a way that resonates and causes action. 

Donald is a great narrator, storyteller, so you can't go wrong with the audio book. I would also grab a written version for a quick reference guide. Priceless information that everyone with a website needs to know.



The DAily Bible

If you have good intentions to read the Bible daily but struggle with consistency and discipline to get started this is the perfect book for you. I've read the full Bible multiple times using this version. It truly becomes a habit in a short time.

The best part about this format is the way it's set up by date. You never have to decide where to start in the Bible, it leads you in by today's reading and then has a great index in the back if you're looking for specific books or verses.

It comes in Kindle, but for me - out of sight, out of mind. I like having it nearby my morning routine. It will change your life in a very powerful positive way.
