Big News! I just finished writing my new book that will, hopefully, be published soon. (WOO HOO!)
Because I’ve been thinking about books 24/7, it reminded me that I haven’t asked my friend what they’re reading lately.
Therefore, we’re revisiting a popular Expert Briefs topic this week …
What are you reading?
Here are their replies. You can click on any cover to check out that book.

Rachel Rofe of How To Get Every Book You Write Onto The First Page Of Kindle says:
I’m always in the middle of a few books. Right now I’m reading through three books which are all EXTREMELY great.
Lain Ehmann of Business Love Potion says:
I’m reading a ton of stuff!
Kelly McCausey of Solo Smarts says:
A couple years back I got a lot out of another book from Jim, The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal. I pre-ordered The Power of Story as soon as I heard about it. It’s not a business book but it has a lot to do with helping you be more successful in business as well as life.
It’s about the story we tell ourselves and others about us. Most of us are telling a terrible story that isn’t even based in truth. It’s not a light read, he’s asking me to truly evaluate what I have to say about myself. I’m convinced though that it will be worth it – I’ve already noticed how I’m not so quick to make reference to some ‘reasons’ for this or that.
Imagine dropping all of your story crutches and standing on your own two feet instead of your own two feet plus the 50 or so good reasons that you haven’t been able to succeed so far. Life gives us a lot of reasons to fail but it doesn’t have to be part of my story – especially when I’m the one who gets to tell it from now on.
David Perdew of NAMS says:
Oh, I’m reading so much always. I usually have 4-6 books going at once in different genres…and since I have them all on my Kindle Fire, I can read as my mood suits me.
Connie Ragen Green of Affiliate Marketing Secrets Explained says:
I’m reading The Leader’s Guide to Storytelling: Mastering the Art and Discipline of Business Narrative by Stephen Denning. I have used storytelling to build up my business in a very short period of time, and it’s my goal to learn more about this topic as I strive to become a leader in my field. This book presents the idea of using your stories to build a powerful business in a clear and concise way.
Shannon Cherry of Get Free Business Help (ie. How to Get Interns) says:
