Book of the Week

IMG_D3FF11D78ADE-1Each Wednesday we have a  book of the week on leadership and self-development.  I post blogs through the week on what I’m reading. I do this so that I can grow as a leader and use what I learn every week to help other leaders grow as well. I am excited about who I will become after a year of reading a book a week. Zig Ziglar says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” I hope that I can do that for you. I also hope that you’ll join me in reading a book a week. It sounds like a lot, but our dreams and our callings in life our worth it. The people around us are worth it for who we will become when we set out to do this. Our actions in how we use what we learn will help us become the persons we were meant to be. They will help us build a foundation that will last a lifetime in leading as we were meant to lead.

To help you reach your goals and to help you read a book a week, I’ve done two things. The first is I wrote an article on reading a book a week called, “7 Tips for Reading a Book a Week“. This has good practical advice for doing just that. Second, when you click on the picture of the book you will be directed to an amazon page to purchase the book (Kindle, Audible, or Old School Book) for your convenience. Plus when you purchase your book from this website by clicking on the picture, your purchase gives a small amount to this website to aid in teaching future leaders. Your purchase here matters. Thank you for visiting this page. And I hope that together, we can help you reach your goals and accomplish your dreams.
