Books Glorious BooksIn my first blog I made reference to the fact that I have been teaching myself some skills required to enable me to become a good network marketer and business person. Besides learning about social media and how I can leverage this to help me, I have been reading books. Well, I say reading like I have been sat turning pages when in reality it has been more about audio books. I spend lots of time in the car so have been utilising that time by listening to lots of books. This is a great way of being able to educate yourself if you are short on having time to yourself, like me. I also love that often the author is the one narrating, so they often go off script and throw in extra helpful little tips. It is almost like they are there, being your personal adviser. It also feels like I get to know them a little bit.
Successful People ReadDo you read? If not, why not? The most successful people on the world read, it is the one thing they all have in common. By reading I don’t mean trashy novels (although on holiday it is always a nice getaway) I mean books that will enhance your life in some way, to educate and help understanding. It is said that Elon Musk the Tesla CEO read 10 hours per day before becoming successful, Bill Gates reads a new book every week, Oprah Winfrey is renown for her love of reading and books. Of course it doesn’t have to be books it could be magazines or Blogs (like mine) as long as it is going to help you in some way, improve your life or well being.
