As many of you know, I travel for the holidays and usually have a 3-4 hour bus ride. This is my time to catch up on my reading. I have amassed a number of great books recently, so I wanted to take a second to share my winter reading list with all of you, so here we go:
Failing Forward- This a really great book that breaks down the concept of failure. The main point is that the way we look at failure makes all the difference. There are some very inspiring stories in here as well as some very practical tips for dealing with things that do not go your way. If you are feeling stuck, this is a great one to pick up. You can grab it HERE.
Graceful- A short inexpensive read by Seth Godin, this is a nice boost if you are thinkng about your business and how to change your thinking. Godin is particularly inspirational as he really digs in to the philosophy behind the work we do and focuses on generosity. You can grab that one quickly HERE.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People- I was really impressed with this one. It has a huge following for a reason. This is a book that we will make you re-think the things you are doing and also give you concrete tools to make changes. I am a big fan and I'm sure you will be too. Even after all this time, this book still stands up. You can get it HERE.
Fierce Loyalty: Unlocking the DNA of wildly successful communities- This one is also a quick read, but very cool. In it you will find out the steps that you take to build a loyal community and you will also see examples of powerful communities that have used these techniques. You can pick it up HERE.
Love is the killer app- An absolute must for any connector. This book will help you see how generosity and connecting people is really the only way to go in business. I loved reading this one and was immediately inspired. If you are looking for a real pick me up that gives you great tools for growing, this is the book for you. You can grab it HERE.
Also while I'm on the topics of books, my friend and fellow connector Ciara Pressler is releasing her new one. Be sure to Check it out!
There you have it. Some great reading for the long trips ahead. Enjoy.
P.S.- ConnectorCon is coming. Grab your tickets HERE.
