I have a long commute.
What helps pass the time is listening to podcasts and audiobooks.  I save my fiction reading for printed books- in my car, it is all about self-improvement and education.

I love to read and I love learning.

Filling my life with positive messages, self-improvement, and self-discovery has made a major impact on my life and how I go about my day to day business.

Some of these books inspired me to start my own business.

They changed my thinking- and that my friends is where you start to make BIG changes in your life.  

I hope you pick up some of my favorites and find a nugget of inspiration in one of them.
