I’m in NYC right now and today my sister Karin joined me here. She brought a book with her called, “The Little Black Book of Workout Motivation” by Michael Matthews. I chose to read a section called “Do the Work” and Michael talks about you can fight resistance now or hate yourself later. And he describes “Resistance” […]

I read from “Hard-Won Wisdom: True Stories from the Management Trenches”. It’s written by my friend Jathan Janove, whom I met in my mastermind group and has now become my relationship coach. He uses a lot of the principles in this book and other tools to coach me. One of those tools would be this: don’t […]

Once again this is book from a friend. Eldridge J Broussard III wrote an AMAZING book called “The Challenge to Change”. He gave me the youth edition because it’s a workbook.
