-Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss- actually been reading this since it came out last year. It is a great resource book, done in an interview type of question and answer format.

(chipping away at this one, only available in book form so it takes me a while) 3/1/18

“Tools of Titans” by Tim Ferris
-crazy good resource book- this one is only available in hardback so I am reading a few pages every morning. This is probably best since there is a lot of information to absorb and put to use. I am 200 pages in and it is 600 pages. 5/15/17 Now done and reading again and testing out some of the ideas in there. Very highly recommend this one.
2/2017 “Laws for doing the impossible” Patrick BetDavid
Quick read and worth it. Give it a try. I really like this guy and what he is all about. Check him out if you can. He is all over You Tube.
3/2017 Good to great by Jim Collins- classic, must read, I had read this once or twice before, probably need to read again
4/2017″Millionaire success habits” Dean Graziosi- very good
I had heard about Dean but wasn’t sure if I would be into his books. Then I heard him interviewed on a podcast and really liked him and his mindset/philosophy, so I decided to read it.
Really good book. Recommend it
5/2017 “Real Life MBA” by Jack Welch Great book by a legend.And his wife.
6/2017 “The $100 startup” by Chris Guillebeau
Good read, lot of interesting ideas by a very interesting person.
“You are a badass” by Jen Sincero
Probably meant for women but I liked the title and had to listen to it. Good book, inspirational. Worth the read.
6/2017 “#ask Gary Vee”
A question and answer book by Gary Vaynerchuk based on his podcast. A lot of ad-lib things on the audio version of this. Once this guy gets going, it is a lot of fun to listen to him. He has a lot of good information and strong opinions to pass on. I recommend it.
7/2017 “Living forward” by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Hakavy
Great read to make sure you are on the right path in your life. Recommend.
8/2017 “The Big idea” Donny Deutsch Great book. Recommend
“Intentional Living” John Maxwell A good read, he has many books and I have read a good amount of them. Recommend
9/2017 “The Slight Edge“,by Jeff Olson. great book with a simple message. Do the little things everyday, keep doing them each day and they will make a difference in your life. A quote in the book was ” It is easy to do and easy not to do” Referring to the daily decisions that we all have to make each day. This could be as simple as getting up on the first ring of the alarm clock. Easy to d, easy not to do. Saving a little money from each time you are paid, easy to do, easy not to do. Saying no to the french fries, easy to do easy not to do. All these things are easy to do or not to do each day but a year or two or three down the road, those easy choices add up. They add up to good work ethic, good health and a good amount of money. Easy choices made everyday make big differences in your life.
“QBQ” The question behind the question. A short simple read but important. Mostly about personal responsibility. Take the little amount of time it will take and read it. I have read it before and it was a good reminder to hear it again.
10/2017 “The One Thing” Jay Papasan, Gary Keller this is easy but tough to do. really good
“Principles” Ray Dalio A lot of great info, long but worth it.
11/2017 “Discipline equals Freedom” Jocko Willink Great Book, love his mindset. Great exercises towards the end of book.
“Relentless” by Tim Grover Another great coah, but pretty intense guy. Loved it though.
12/2017 “Memory Rescue” Daniel Amen excellent resource for healthy eating and living. My grandmother had Alzheimers, so I my ears perk up when I hear about a book to help reduce the odds of getting it. There is a ton of info in here and it goes on and on but it’s definitely worth the time to read it.
“The Keto Reset Diet” Mark Sisson I was already on a restricted diet based on Lectins, decided to step it up to a Keto diet, pretty interesting stuff. Worth the read.
-Love Does by Bob Goff great read, this was given to me by a friends wife. I ended up giving away 6 or 7 copies already.
