It’s TSC book club time. You know I love a book club. I’m a huge bookworm and I know a lot of you guys are too. I try to read for 30 minutes a day at least.
Reading is something that really got me through my mom’s death. It’s something I could focus on that was outside of myself. The Nanz gave me this tip. When you’re upset or not in a good place, focus on something outside of yourself. It really helps. That’s reading for me.
Reading keeps you interested and interesting.
I’ve done some posts on books before so if you haven’t checked them out stalk them here: 1, 2, 3, 4.
But today we’re going to talk specifically about business books. I know a lot of you own your own business or are in a 9-5 hustle, so here are 5 books that have really helped me when it comes to running a business.
Let’s dive right in:
WorkParty: How to Create & Cultivate the Career of Your Dreams by Jaclyn Johnson
This book is really great for millennials. Jaclyn is a total badass who we’ve had on the podcast, and …
Michael & I are in Greece! Which means LOTS of books. There’s nothing better than kicking back with a book. You know I LOVE long flights because it’s a time to disconnect, sip some champagne, & read a book without any distractions. Not going to lie, I kind of like when the wifi is spotty- gives me an excuse to read.
Whether you’re going somewhere exotic or simply reading while you walk on the treadmill these are the books you need to be reading now:
Everything About Me is Fake and I’m Perfect
Janice Dickinson is something else. After listening to her on a podcast recently I immediately had to know more. She is raw and unapologetically herself. I mean just look at her book title, Everything About Me is Fake & I’m Perfect. Get ready for a juicy read about modern culture from the woman who claims to have coined the term ‘super model.’ I loved her other 2 books too. Funny enough, I read them while recovering from a boob job years ago ( LOL ). Anyway she’s funny as hell.
How To Be Hot
Christal Fuentes is a relationship coach & the babe behind The …
Hello, hello! How are you guys doing? Michael & I have been up in LA recording podcasts with some VERY special guests for you guys. We can’t wait to introduce them in the upcoming weeks. Since LA is always full of traffic we’ve been switching between podcasts & audiobooks. If you’re looking for some good reads while driving or for some refreshing spring books I’ve got you covered. Here’s a nice mix between motivational books & juicy memoirs. Check out my top picks for April below!
It’s important to have a handle on current events and an understanding as to why they happened. That’s why I was intrigued by The End of Normal. Galbraith challenges the view that the Great Crisis of 2008 was merely an interruption in our otherwise growing economy. He dives into the reasons behind the recession in a way that is easy to understand. Now I feel knowledgable about what’s going on in the global economy & how to be prepared going forward under a potentially new normal.
As you guys know reading is one of mine & my husband’s ( so weird to say “husband” ) favorite pastimes. It’s really the perfect way to wind down at night, calm the mind, & learn something new. With all of the traveling I’ve been able to get through some INCREDIBLE books.
Discussing mental health is really important since I’ve dealt with anxiety ( & I know some of you struggle with this too ). All of these books help shed some light on coping with these struggles in insightful ways.
I have this weird thing for the Kennedy family. The whole family is fascinating, especially from the perspective of this book. Told from the point of view of JFK’s executive assistant, RoseMarie, Fairy Tale Interrupted details the life of the Kennedys in a new way. It’s a fun glimpse capturing the behind the scenes of an iconic man & the aftermath of his death. Ask me about the Kennedys- I know the weirdest, most random facts.
This book was published over 50 years ago and it’s one of my favorite books of all time. The main character Sammy Glick is the character we think of when we think of a Hollywood big shot in the glory days of Hollywood. The book follows Sammy’s progress as he climbs to the top of his craft doing whatever it takes along the way. It’s a harsh look behind closed doors in the darkest corners of Hollywood. This is a quick read but it always entertains.
