Professional reading a business book.

The 16th book I’ve finished this year so far is The Rise of America by Marin Katusa (also on Amazon). This one was a business book which is all about how America is actually rising in prominence and wealth rather than declining. There are a lot of naysayers about the US declining I must admit…

This particular book follows the journey of…

Another business book done. I finished up Fearless by Tim Kintz (also on Amazon) a few days ago but since finishing it fell on a Thursday I didn’t have a chance to write anything and don’t feel like doing so on a Friday evening. I may enjoy writing these book reviews but not enough to…

I finished another business book, Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier (also on Amazon) which is meant to help you reach a point in your finances where you can be free to do what you want. It might not mean retiring from working or not earning any more money (or it could) but rather meaning you…

This post isn’t about formal learning but I wanted to use that as a segue because my day job is more in the formal corporate learning space. My goal of this post is to share my newest project that I just started working on a few weeks ago and why I’m doing it. I enjoy…

Professional reading a business book.

After my long hiatus from business reading I browsed through the business category in Apple Books for my next cheap read. I’m not sure what I found could be considered a business book but more of a living book. I chose Lives Of The Stoics by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman (also available on Amazon)…

After reading this book for a while (it was pretty long) I finished Ireland by Frank Delaney (also available on Amazon). As I mentioned on my last book review (which was also fun) I wasn’t too sure about this book from the beginning. Well, it began to grow on me and it was a riveting…

This book took me to the 1850s in Ohio but the journey didn’t begin there. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier (also available on Amazon) begins in England with a long journey by ship across the ocean and then by land to the destination of a small town in Ohio. I don’t envy the people…

The latest book I recently finished up is Beyond The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch (also available on Amazon). My first impression by the book was a bit of confusion and having to try to find how it flowed. Even when I picked up the sample and started reading I wasn’t sure about the book.…
