Recommendery: Feed your Brain & Grow Your Profits!
I am an addict – to business books! I read anywhere from 25-40 of these kinds of books a year, on top of the 2-3 fiction books per week that I read or listen to. Yep, I am a bookaholic, no doubt about it.
Here is a list of some of the books that I plan to read, or re-read, in 2019. Pick up any of them and stretch your thinking. It just may be the one that leads to your next great idea!
FYI – These are all links to the books on Amazon.com, to make it easy for you to order them as an ebook, an actual book or an audible download. If you order any of them from the links below, NNEP does earn a small commission.
I would love to know what you think about or get from any of these books! Leave a comment below, or email me, or give me a call and we can chat about it, and brainstorm some ways to apply the ideas from these books in your business over the coming year.
What are you reading? I would love to check it out – let me know?
The books are not listed in any particular order – they are just all on my radar for the beginning of 2019:

Start with Why – by Simon Sinek
