One of my goals is to read - I’ve set a goal of 30 books in 2019 and I will smash that goal (I’m on book number 24 as this episode is released, although I was working on book 23 as I recorded the episode). When I mention “reading” books, I mean legitimately reading physical books or books on my kindle. I am not including audio books, because I listen to podcasts while I drive around.

In this episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I review the following five last books I’ve read:

The Purple Cow by Seth Godin. The basic premise of this book is how you can make your business stand out in a crowd.

The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. This book teaches you that small incremental improvements every day add up to tremendous changes over time.

Whale Done by Kenneth H. Blanchard, Thad Lacinak, Chuck Tompkins, and Jim Ballard. My biggest takeaway from this book is the power of positivity in creating relationships with my staff, my friends, my family and everyone else with whom I interact in all phases of my life.

Raving Fans also by Kenneth H. Blanchard, and Sheldon Bowles. I love Mr. Blanchard’s books because they use stories to make their point, and in this book the lesson is how to create raving fans for your business.

Putting Stories to Work by Shawn Callahan. I have always felt that finding and telling stories in my presentations was a weakness. This book cures that weakness by showing you how to find, incorporate, refresh or retire stories in your presentations.
