I’m an avid reader, and make it a point to read from a hard copy book every night before I go to bed. Visit here to find out what I’m reading now, as well as what I’ve read in years past!

Reading Now

High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

DECEMBER 25, 2017 – I’m only in the first chapter of Brendon’s latest book, however if it continues as the Introduction did, I’m in for a complete mind blow! The last two years have shown me that “High Performance” doesn’t mean we’re pushing and stressing ourselves into the ground, and I’m excited to see what habits I can bring into my life to take it — personally and professionally — to the next level.

Worthy by Nancy Levin

DECEMBER 2017 – A dear friend recommended Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth to me in 2016, and I purchased it immediately. I’m kicking myself in the butt for having taken so long to start reading it!

I never realized how much my money mindset was struggling. Although only halfway through the book, I’ve already started making shifts — spending-wise and mentally — so that financial success leaps up in 2018. For example, I never realized how money tended to burn a whole in my pocket. If it was in my account, I felt as though I needed to spend it before someone else did. This is NOT a healthy way to live — financially or mentally — and I’m excited to already be seeing growth in savings just by leaving that insecurity in my past.

Think Better, Live Better by Joel Osteen

Although I was raised Catholic, I didn’t become what I consider to be a true Christian until I was 31. In 2009, a year before finding Christ, however, I was introduced to the Law of Attraction, which I still believe strongly in today. In Think Better, Live Better, Osteen does a fabulous job showing me how I can combine my Christianity with my LOA beliefs to live a richer, fuller life.

Please note: Richer, to me, never simply means financially richer. I strongly believe we can live a rich and prosperous life when we have deep, meaningful relationships, a strong passion for what we do, and when we have peace in our lives.

In speaking with other Christians about Joel Osteen, I am often surprised to hear non-appreciative comments about how he preaches the prosperity Bible. I don’t agree with this in the negative way it is often said, and this book provides evidence as to why I, a Christian entrepreneur, shouldn’t hold myself back from reaching my true potential.

God put the thoughts we have in to our heads. He made us the way we are, and He made us that way for a reason. I truly believe it is our responsibility to do something with the gifts God bestowed upon us, and if we become rich in the process, GREAT!
