A recent survey by Fast Company suggests that the average number of books read by CEO’s is 60 books per year, or five books each month. That’s a lot of reading! I personally read about 1-2 books per month that relate to all the facets of my business.
(Fun Fact: I also read fiction for pleasure at night, and have been doing so every single night since the sixth grade, but I don’t count those books in my totals here!)
I HIGHLY recommend you get yourself an Audible account from Amazon and start streaming your books. Or, a free audio book account with Chirp. You have so much more time to listen to them than you think. I listen on my commute to and from work, when I’m cooking, when I exercise… and I get through them so quickly this way!
Pro Tip: Keep a notepad and pen nearby so you can write down inspiring ideas as you listen.
On this page, I’ve listed all the books that have ever inspired me personally as well as the books I tell my clients to read depending on what goals they are working on at any given time. And yes, I have read every one of these books myself!
