Season’s Greetings and 3 Must Read Books for Small Business Results

As we enter the last few weeks of the year, I want to send you blessings for peaceful holidays and wishes for a good year ahead. I thought it would help share my top inspirational and productivity resources to look at while you are kicking back and taking time to reassess your next steps. 

In this email, I will share my top three recent must-read business books with you. You should then check your inbox in the next week for my top five applications and other resources that I believe in because they work for my clients.

I once called my mother and said, ” I can’t stop buying books” She replied, “if you are going to be addicted to something, it’s a good addiction to have!” I love to read and believe it’s imperative to stay on top of industry trends and find peace and solitude in words.

These three books below are my current top choices:

EQ Applied: The Real-World Guide to Emotional Intelligence by Justin Barrel 

In the time of Covid-19, running a business virtually and meeting the demands of our personal and professional life, we need the skills to manage emotions. As an EQ Trainer, I found this book to provide practical strategies that will shape our emotional reactions and provide practical skills to practice and implement immediately. It’s a great read, and I highly recommend it.

The Road Less Stupid by Keith J. Cunningham

As small business owners, we all have many great ideas and too often run our businesses without taking enough time to examine our approach or make strategic decisions. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and the philosophy, and the questions this author asks. I feel it greatly aligns with my coaching style, thinking strategy, planning, and execution. I loved this book.

The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller

We feel more overwhelmed and distracted at work and in our personal lives now more than ever before. The author’s teaching is very aligned with the systems and frameworks I’ve developed at SBR. If you’re looking to get a jump start on business productivity for the new year. This is a great read (you could actually work with me to help you implement it).

Stay tuned this week for more on my top business resources!
