September’s monthly reading list saw two books that helped me in drastically different ways. I’m a big believer in reading books with purpose. By that, I mean that you should read books based on what you are looking to get out of them at that time in your life.
For example, a book about having a successful marriage may not help you out if you are single. Much like one about picking up women at a bar won’t help you much if you are married. (or at least I hope)
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Think and Grow Rich is one of the most read finance books ever written. I had initially given it a read when I was in college, and like I said above, I wasn’t necessarily ready for the information it gave.
When I picked it up this second time around, I was amazed by it nearly every single page. If you have kept up with previous month’s books, this one has a similar idea to it as Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T Harv Eker, but Napolean Hill goes about it in a much more… civil way 🙂
Napoleon talks about his encounters and conversations with the worlds most famous wealthy mean, like Andrew Carnegie and John D Rockefeller. He talks about how they operated, who they did business with, and most importantly, how they thought.
He gives their secrets on how to create success in your life, how to reach your goals, and how to manifest your dreams into your reality. Pretty crazy stuff. Since reading this book, I have implemented these practices into my life and have already seen some improvements. This one is a must read for every person out there looking for success in any form.
DotCom Secrets by Russell Brunson
This is another book that hit me at the right time, or it was just Russell’s instagram targeting… but I digress.
If you own a business, whether online or brick and morter, this book gives you all the funnel building ideas you could need.
As a new owner of an eCommerce brand, frznrope, I needed to know how to put my offer in front of people in the best way. In this book, Russell Brunson runs through the best types of offers and how you can maximize your profits on them.
I have heard from some people that this book is really generic marketing advice, but as a guy who works in accounting, this book blew my mind. I’m sure if I had gotten a marketing degree in college it may not have been as informative, but you take what you can get.
If you are looking to take your business to the next level by implementing funnels, or if you just want some new ideas of where to take your business, give this one a try!
