Books that changed my life:
The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss
The one that started it all. I can picture where I was standing when I picked it up in a Chicago bookstore. This was the moment I realized I could live life on my own terms. I did just that.
How to Win Friend & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
This is the first book I remember reading after college. It’s an oldie but the advice is timeless. More importantly it taught me that by changing my behavior, I could change my life.
Vagabonding by Rolf Potts
I knew I liked travel but I did not truly love its essence until I had read Vagabonding. Amongst the wonderful travel stories is the underlying theme of figuring out what you want to do with your life, going out and doing it.
The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
I knew within the first twenty pages of Pressfield’s book that it would change my life. It cut to the core of how I was allowing my creative process to be sabotaged. It’s why I’m writing today.
Mindset by Carol Dweck
The Growth Mindset. One of the most powerful concepts a human can learn. The idea that you are not a fixed quantity – but rather able to improve with hard work. It’s that simple. Read article I wrote.
The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
This book opened my eyes to a problem that, if remedied, would stop the senseless destruction of countless lives while creating an immense opportunity for our country to grow economically.
