“A room without books is a body without soul. -Cicero.”
A recent survey by Fast Company suggests that the average number of books read by CEO’s is 60 books per year, or five books each month. That’s a lot of reading! I personally read about 1-2 books per month that relate to all the facets of my business.
(Fun Fact: I also read fiction for pleasure at night, and have been doing so every single night since the sixth grade, but I don’t count those books in my totals here!)
I HIGHLY recommend you get yourself an audio streaming account to listen to books. It’s so much faster this way to consume the material! I have both an Audible account and a CHIRP account, which first time customers can take advantage of my 20% off code when you sign up for a free audio book account with Chirp. You have so much more time to listen to them than you think. I listen on my commute to and from work, when I’m cooking, when I exercise… and I get through them so quickly this way!
Pro Tip: Keep a notepad and pen nearby so you can write down inspiring ideas as you listen.
On this page, I’ve listed all the books that have ever inspired me personally as well as the books I tell my clients to read depending on what goals they are working on at any given time. And yes, I have read every one of these books myself!
