March Reading

The School of Greatness, Lewis Howes

In The School of Greatness, Lewis Howes shares golden nuggets of advice from interviewing some of "the greats" on his podcast throughout the years, including Olympic gold-medal athletes, world-renowned speakers (such as Tony Robbins), and other well-known personalities and entrepreneurs.   This book is a framework for personal development and will give you the insight to reach your full potential.  This book would make an excellent graduation gift!

Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, Gary Vaynerchuk

2. Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, Gary Vaynerchuk
I am a big fan of Gary Vee, and listen to his podcast "The GaryVee Audio Experience" regularly.  Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook is a culmination of some of his best podcast episodes to date, along with some of his other books.  In this book, Vaynerchuk shares advice on how to connect with your audience and "beat the competition" by jabbing, a/k/a patiently building relationships and engaging with your audience, and throwing right hooks to seal the deal.  I recommend this book for bloggers or anyone that works in marketing.

Daring Greatly, Brene Brown

3. Daring Greatly, Dr. Brene Brown
This book was inspired by one of my favorite quotes- "The Man in the Arena."  I first became a fan of Dr. Brown after hearing her Ted Talk on vulnerability (if you haven't seen it, go watch it now: here).  I'll be honest, while I did like this book, it was not quite what I thought it would be.  The first chapter was great, but I had a hard time focusing after that.  The book was full of case studies (so it would be an excellent read if you work in psychology or social work, etc.).

Each month, I share what books I read the previous month to give you some reading inspiration.  March was very busy for me, so I did not get to read as many books as I would have liked.  I did manage to get three books in, though.  Enjoy!

Also, in case you missed it, here are the books I read in January and the books I read in February.

What are you reading??  Thanks so much for stopping by!
