In the words of Harry Truman, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” I love to read, but have found that as we get busier and extra time gets harder to find, my reading time has started to vanish. So, we made the decision in our brokerage to start a book club. Now, I have to keep reading so that I can participate with our team. I’m still wishing I was reading more than one book a month, but at least I’m getting it done.
So, I figured I would invite you to participate with us. We’re already on month two, so you’ve got some catching up to do. Last month we read 7 Levels of Communication by Michael Maher. Generally when I read a business book I look for one or two things to take away from it and try to apply in life or business. Now, I could be a real smartass and tell you that I took 7 things away, but I won’t. I took way more than 7. I’ll be writing a full review soon, but this is a book you should buy today!
This month, we are reading Miracle Morning for Real Estate Agents by Hal Elrod with some help from a few others. It’s a take off of Hal’s book Miracle Morning that is designed specifically for Realtors. I’m not finished with it yet, but so far it is pretty darn good. It’s particularly challenging for me given that I am in no way, shape, or form a morning person. I need someone to write a book called Miracle Midnight for Real Estate Agents. Maybe I’ll work on that.
Each month, I’ll be writing a review and thoughts on how you can apply principles from the book. I’d love for you to join us and share your thoughts as we go through a new book each month.
In the meantime, for those of you who are eager to read more than one book a month, I created a page with a bunch of books that I’ve read and recommend. Trust me, there are a lot that were left off the list. I’ve still got a few to add, but it’s a good start. The link to the page is also in the navigation menu on the right side of the page. In full disclosure, the links are Amazon Affiliate links. They’ll help me buy more books to tell you about, so thanks in advance.
Oh, and if you have any suggestions to add to the list for the book club, hit me up.
