    I normally don’t read just for fun but more with a purpose to learn and improve. What books have you read that you found beneficial?

    I just started reading the book “Selling the Invisible, a field guide to modern marketing” by Harry Beckwith and it is very good so far.

    I have also read “Financial Peace Revisited” by Dave Ramsey, very good for managing home and business spending. I wish I would have read it sooner

    I just finished read Ayn Rand’s classic “Atlas Shrugged” I found it to be thought provoking, at times intense and poignant, and at other times fantastical and silly. But it refreshed my desire to be the best producer that I can be, to be proud of the jobs that my team produces and to not worry about my pricing all the time because we CAN charge for the ability we have gathered.

    Two books I have read multiple times are “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann and “The Energy Bus” by Jon Gordon. Both books are parables and quick reads with some very powerful messages. If you would like some more titles, let me know.

    Have a FUN & PROFITABLE day!

    Customers for Life, by Carl Sewell. The other two books by Beckwith are also great. I buy my books used at the website ABE Books for great savings. It is a collection of bookstores from all over the US and England.

    “The E-myth” is always a great read to encourage me to refine the policies and procedures to operate a great business.

    Just about finished with Dave Ramsey’s “EntreLeadership” He writes about things he has done over the decades that have helped him and his brand become what it is. I really am enjoying it and able to take some great ideas to implement.
