This year one of my goals was to read 12 books this year. I’m hoping to read more than 12 books but we will see how crazy life gets in 2019. 2019 is already off to an interesting start.
All these books are business books but I plan to read a few regular ones if I find the time!
The book covers are linked to each book on amazon! All excerpts came from Amazon.
Here’s my 2019 book list:
Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
“In this book, each chapter tackles a different lie Rachel has believed, the authentic examples from her own life illustrating those lies, and then the methods she used (or wish she had used) to defeat those lies. These are big, vulnerable topics like ‘I Should Be Farther Along By Now’ and ‘I Will Never Get Past This’.
Rachel doesn’t want this book to change your life. She wants you to read this book, and then feel strengthened so you change your life.”
This is Marketing by Seth Godin
This book calls us marketers and entrepreneurs to look at marketing a bit differently. Instead of doing things the traditional way, Seth challenges us to think “client or problem-first.”
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
“Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.”
Be Obsessed or Be Average by Grant Cardone
“If you want real success, you have to know how to harness your obsession to rocket to the top. This book will give you the inspiration and tools to break out of your cocoon of mediocrity and achieve your craziest dreams. Grant will teach you how to:
· Set crazy goals—and reach them, every single day.
· Feed the beast: when you value money and spend it on the right things, you get more of it.
· Shut down the doubters—and use your haters as fuel.”
