Reading List – December

January 5, 2012 at 8:37 am Leave a comment

The Virgin Cure by Amy MacKay. I love Ami MacKay’s books, and not just because she’s local and is in the same home-schooling group I was in. Her prose are lyrical and her characters are multi-dimensional.

 

Shantaram: a Novel by Gregory David Roberts This was a 900+ page novel so it took most of December to read. It was pretty dark in places, but I couldn’t help feeling total sympathy with the protagonist even as he was hurting people, being hurt and breaking the law. It read more like an autobiography than a novel.

 

Midas Touch: why some entrepreneurs get rich and most don’t by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki. I wrote a whole post about this one.

 

Little Bird of Heaven: a novel by Joyce Carol Oates. Is it fate or is it a series of wrong decisions? How many generations should pay? A woman is murdered. Her husband and her lover are both suspected, brought into custody and released without charges, except by popular opinion. This is the story of one’s daughter and the other’s son.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
