I have been working on some exciting projects over the last few months. I have mentioned the book I have been writing several times. I justGEN The 10 Woman reading magazines submitted the manuscript to the publisher last week! I am also creating a couple of free courses for you. One covers marketing and communication, and I think it will be really helpful for healthcare professionals as you start to share your message with the public. I am also close to finishing a free course on common sports and exercise injuries for healthcare providers in sports medicine, students who want to work in sports medicine one day and anyone who works with athletes and active people, like strength and conditioning trainers. Keep an eye out for more about those free courses here in the next few weeks!

Now let’s get to the books and articles!


Book I read this week: I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi. This is a great, step-by-step book of instructions on how to get out of debt, spend without guilt, and save for the future. Just because it is simple doesn’t mean many people will actually follow his recommendations. Having said that, he offers terrific financial advice here!

Book I’m reading next week: Leap First: Creating Work That Matters
by Seth Godin. This is not a book, per se, but an audio lecture that Godin gave to students. You can get it on Audible. I am a big fan of Godin’s daily blog posts, so I’m looking forward to this work.
