Read & Grow Rich.
It’s a motto I like to live by.
And one that’s proven to be true when taking stock of just about every successful entrepreneur I’ve come to know in the last 20 years.
But just like you can “read your way to success”, you also read your way out of a deep hole.
Personal turning points are often found by turning the page (literally).
(particularly if it’s a page out of one of these)
And at age 23, coming off of a second failed startup, I desperately needed to sync myself up to something that could spur new growth and flip my fortunes.
That’s when a trip to my local bookstore changed EVERYTHING and put me on an epic trajectory that would see me read hundreds of books over the next decade.
Of those, I often get asked for the MOST impactful, life-changing, and transformational of the bunch.
Today, I finally open up that vault of wisdom for public consumption:
Now before you jump over to Amazon to abuse its single-click checkout system, let me ask you something…
What was the most inspiring, life-changing book you’ve ever read?
How did it flip your fortunes?
Inspire new ideas?
Or pull you out of a seemingly hopeless rut?
I’d love it if you could take a second to share that with me in the comments below.
That way we can all make a nice quick deposit in the communal knowledge bank.
And if you know of any friends or fellow entrepreneurs who could use a boost, then make sure to share this post with them.
They’ll thank you for it 🙂
To your growing bookshelf (and the bottom line it inspires),
P.S. Make sure to watch till the end where I reveal one of the best marketing books ever read (and definitely the one with the weirdest title).
P.P.S. If you’re strapped for time and want to make sure you get the absolute MOST out of your reading time, then check out this simple (but powerful) learning strategy I use to soak up the most value from every word.
