“It’s never too late to start. It’s always too late to wait.” Jeff Olson
Thank You, Monica Peneku and Chalene Johnson for being amazing mentors and emphasizing Personal Development.
Personal Development is a cornerstone of any successful business or relationship. It makes you better! A better person, leader, partner, and business owner.
It works because you have successful leaders sharing their answers and insight. You have been given a roadmap for success. You just have to follow it.
Eat That Frog! by Brian Trac
I LOVE this small but powerful book. This is the first book I give my kids, my grandkids, and my students.
Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long. Your “frog” is your biggest, most important task, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on if you don’t do something about it.
And if you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first!
People Follow You: The Real Secret to What Matters Most in Leadership by Jeb Blount
People follow people that they like, trust, and believe in.
This is the second book I give my kids, my grandkids, and my students when they reach a point where they are leading a” team”. The lessons are just as relevant for group projects in school as they are for the CFO leading his finance team.
