Summer of Business Books Challenge

Summer of Business Books Reading Challenge

Hi there!  It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here. Just incase you didn’t know, I have started another blog beyond reading 112 Books.  Its called View 112.  I’ve been spending a lot of time curating great content on view112.com and I have the View 112 Podcast on iTunes. I’m working on something special for the summer and thought you’d like to know about it.

I am THRILLED to announce the View 112 Summer of Business Books Reading Challenge!

Guys. You know how much I love to read. This summer I want to encourage you to join me in reading a business book in June, July, and August. That’s right, I want to read 3 business books with you this summer. I’ve been working my way through the business isle at my local book store and I think I’ve got just the right combination. My goal is for us to leave Summer 2017 better in our careers and businesses. When you sign up for the Summer of Business Books Reading Challenge you will receive exclusive updates from me each week, info on opportunities to engage with other people doing the challenge, and gain perspective from others with like minded goals to be better in business this summer. I’m excited to engage with you around these books, learn what you are doing differently, and build together. My vision is to cultivate a virtual book club of fun, goal getters!

I am reaching out to the 3 authors to encourage a “Tweet the Author” event.  Hopefully they will join us.  I’d love to get their perspective.

“New year, New you” is mocked these days on social media because often times we don’t maintain our resolutions.  Still, I am a believer in the power of goal setting.  Few things motivate me more than dreaming, planning, and mapping out my accomplishments this time of year.  True I didn’t accomplish everything in 2016, I certainly feel the growth and difference a year can make.  Often what I read says a lot about me and my focus.  Here I share with you books I’ve read or will read to improve my health (mental and physical), finances, professional ambitions, productivity and more.   (more…)

112 Books: The Top 12

One of the most frequently asked questions of me is “What has been the best book you’ve read this year?”  I have had a hard time answering the question as I’ve read so many fantastic books.  (My list was sensational!) Narrowing down 112 books to 12 was hard.  Allow the disclaimer that I could give you another 12 beyond this list.  That being said, here at my top 12 books I’ve read in 2016: (more…)

Book 100: Ego is the Enemy

Well guys its official.  I have read 100 books this year.  I only have 12 books to read between now and my birthday on January 12, 2017.  I didn’t know when I selected Ego is the Enemy to be my 100th read that I would get so much perspective about this journey of reading and blogging about reading 112 Books.

Many things stood out to me about this book but one that really struck me was the section under Aspire. This section called out a lot of things for me such as talking about what you are going to do versus doing it first then sharing if you must.  I think I am pretty action oriented, but something hit me like a ton of bricks after reading the Aspire section:  (more…)
