Books

Leaders are readers. Readers are leaders.

Welcome to my library! I have put together a complete list of the books I have read, intentionally. Each book had an impact on my thinking. Some more than others. To see my top 10 reads of all-time, download my THINK Guide for FREE!

Hands down, the best way to learn is from others who have gone before. It’s called borrowing wisdom. Pick up a book and implement the knowledge you have learned/read into your daily life. I started intentionally reading in 2011 and continue to do so today. I noticed the more books I read, the more opportunity presented itself.

Note: I did not read the books in the order they are listed. For convenience, I put the books in alphabetical order (by title) under the year that I read them.

Be sure to check out my wish list library too! You’ll see what I plan on reading next!
