Last week I shared my process for reading so many books. To me, it seems pretty straightforward. To make it work, though, I have to listen to audiobooksGEN The 10 - Tablet hand tapping when I drive and work out. To listen to them, I have an Audible membership. If you listen to audiobooks regularly (and you should!), you need to subscribe to Audible. By signing up, you get a few books for free. Then you pay for one per month and get discounts on other purchases. I love it because you can speed up the playback if you want, and you can bookmark important passages to find later. Give it a try!

Now let’s get to some great books and articles!

 Book I read this week: The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster: Why Now Is the Time to #JoinTheRide by Darren Hardy. I loved this book! If you are starting any kind of business (and you should!), you must read this book first. Plus, so many of the principles Hardy teaches apply to success in every aspects of your life. It’s terrific, and I know I will read it many times in the next few years.

 Book I’m reading next week: The Entrepreneur’s Solution: The Modern Millionaire’s Path to More Profit, Fans & Freedom by Mel Abraham. I am spending the next month or two learning about becoming an entrepreneur (being a doctor doesn’t really prepare you for it). Having seen Mel speak at Experts Academy, I thought his book would be a great place to start!
