Professional reading a business book.

I finished another business book, Financial Freedom by Grant Sabatier 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 can do what…

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 which really had nothing…

After reading this book for a while (it was pretty long) I finished Ireland by Frank Delaney. 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 tale of Ireland with…

This book took me to the 1850s in Ohio but the journey didn’t begin there. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier 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 of those times who…

The latest book I recently finished up is Beyond The 80/20 Principle by Richard Koch. 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. I went ahead and…

Podcast Video Recording Microphone Setup

I create a lot of audio content between my day job and the many projects I work on. Most of that audio is narration and sometimes I’m recording my screen at the same time and other times I’m reading from a script. When I started out recording audio I didn’t do it very often and…

I didn’t think I was going to have a book to write something about this week but I was further along than I thought. I was thinking there would be no post because I haven’t gotten around to taking some pictures of my recording setup. Well, here I am with another book review. This time…

Woman reading a book by water

My favorite books are the fun books and I just finished another good one. I’m not an expert at writing book reviews so these might just be more of what I enjoyed about the book and some of what I didn’t enjoy (not that there ever is anything I don’t enjoy). The last book was…
