Something happened when I became a Beachbody Coach…I started to read…a LOT. I’ve always loved to read, but it was more like Nicholas Spark books…books for pleasure. When I became a Beachbody Coach, I quickly learned that the top coaches read to GROW…so I decided to swap my guilty pleasure books for books that would add VALUE to my life. Not that 50 Shades of Gray doesn’t add value lmao, but I wanted to build my business to the best of my ability, so to do that, I needed to change! When I started coaching, I wasn’t a great leader. I wasn’t savvy at using social media. I had no CLUE how to talk to people about my business. I sucked at time management! I was TERRIFIED to post on social media (and that was to my 400 friends, ha!) I had a lot that I needed to change! So over the past 3 years or so, I’ve read a LOT of personal development books.

By category, here are some of my all time favorites–YES I have read or listened to ALL of these–a lot of them multiple times =) 

I highly encourage you to pick up some of these. These are only the ones that I LOVE and recommend. I love the audio version, so I listen to them in the car, when I’m walking TJ, when I’m cooking, cleaning, folding clothes…you get the picture =) 

I am really thinking about doing a book a week challenge–so if you would like to participate in something like that–let me know =)
