Here’s my last explanation of how I create these “The 10” posts. No, I don’t spend hours online reading blog posts and articles every day to
find the ones I share. I use an RSS reader called Feedly to find articles on particular topics I find interesting. These are the topics below. I then go through the list of articles in each category in my Feedly account every few days and read the ones that seem interesting. I save the ones I like to Evernote, and we create a post with some of the articles each week. You might have a different process to read and learn, but this works for me. I’d love to hear how you read and study!
Here are the articles I think you should read this week!
Book I read this week: The Entrepreneur’s Solution: The Modern Millionaire’s Path to More Profit, Fans & Freedom by Mel Abraham. I’m in sort of an entrepreneurial groove with my reading right now. I think this book is great for people just starting to build a business. I loved the parts about getting the right mindset and pursuing altruistic goals that help others in addition to making money!
Book I’m reading next week: Choose Yourself! by James Altucher. I listen to his podcast, and I love his perspective on life and work. I’m excited to read this book!
