Think and Grow Rich (Wilder Publications, 2008)
This book is the Holy Grail of motivation. The timeless and practical examples used in this book is the baseline to nearly every motivational book written. This is a MUST read for any Reader of ALL Ages.
This is a phenomenal book if you are trying to create more time in your life. It gives you a very diverse group of activities, applications, and tools to help you live a fulfilled life but still get things done. Only 144 pages and very practical. It proves the age old quote “Work Smart, Not Hard” correct.
For all my entrepreneurs, brand managers, or just creative people in general. BUY this book. This is the foundational crash course on how to use social media the right way on a variety of platforms. All the examples he uses through this book are from actual case studies of real companies. He also gives very practical and actionable insight from his own experience building one of Americas most powerful brand marketing companies.
EJ Carrion a good friend of mine wrote this book a few years ago because so many of his peers were dissatisfied with their jobs or hopeless because they were current unemployed. I recommend this book for all High School Upperclassman and All College Students. The days of going to college automatically qualifying you for a great job and life are over and this book will guide you to make the most out of your early adult years. It is very practical with real stories about how to leverage youth youth and curiosity to create your own an amazing future regardless of if you have a 4 year degree or not.
Very simple, direct, and short read about how to be more creative and live a natural and authentic life. Great read for all ages.
Mastery ( Penguin Books)
This book by Robert Greene (Author of 48 Laws of Power) is a very powerful read. I will say this book is very long but he does an amazing job of illustrating what mastery is and how much effort it takes to obtain it. He uses biographical examples of some of the worlds most creative, powerful, and unique people to illustrate the measures it takes to unlock passion and create true mastery. This book is for serious readers because if you probably wont make it through the whole thing.
