Leaders are Readers

From time to time we will share ideas and resources, including books that we have found to enlightening, motivating and educational.  We will include books on wellness, personal growth, leadership, etc.

Everyone who signs on for a network marketing business or any home-based business or one’s own business, can and, we would contend, should have a goal to grow into a leader by motivation and influencing others.  Further, to be successful in any venture, we believe that the most important investment is in one’s self.

The least costly personal development investment is to read.  The most rewarding investment is to read. Who knows where your reading journey will take you.

  • The most recent book that we have read is Shift by Janet Smith Warfield.  Janet  resides in Panama between trips throughout the world. We found Shift stimulating and thought-provoking.  You can learn more about Janet’s fascinating life and her writing by visiting her web site, www.wordsculptures.com.
  • In recently published The Business of the 21st Century by Robert Kiyosaki is a book about the network marketing business model.  Robert Kiyosaki is the author of a number of best-selling books, including best-selling classic Rich Dad Poor Dad.  As stated in The Business of the 21st Century, “….while personal success is fulfilling, it’s much more fulfilling when you can help many others create their own success as well.”  Current studies show that many people want and need to have their own business; this book presents the nature of and the rich benefits of  network marketing.
  • In keeping with our Performance and Fitness theme, I wanted to recommend, Running and Being by Dr. George Sheehan, a book that has been in our library since 1978.  “Doc” Sheehan was a runner, philosopher and writer who we knew, who inspired us and inspired many others to find the benefits of a healthy and fit lifestyle.  As the book jacket says, ” …(The book) covers all aspects of the joy and excitement of sport, the whole experience of the joining of body, body and soul into an integrated wholeness : an act which brings together work, play, love and religion.”
  • Dr. Mehmet C. Oz says that the Blue Zones – Lessons for Living Longer From People Who’ve Lived the Longest by Dan Buettner is “A must read if you want to stay young.”  By studying along with research scientists areas of the world where people live longer and more vital lives, the author comes up with some simple lifestyle changes that could make a big difference in the quality of one’s life.  It is an excellent and motivating book for those like the authors of this blog who are committed to helping others find and adopt wellness lifestyle solutions.
