We are well into 2022 and couldn’t be more excited about the momentum of the year so far! Our team has some really great projects in the works, and sometimes when you get into the thick of projects, you forget to keep educating yourself. It can be difficult to go to classes or seminars, or even set aside time for local networking events.
Luckily, we will always have books. Whether you enjoy having a book read to you in an audiobook app, or holding the bound paper goodness of a book in your hands, you can continue to learn and grow. We have spent some time over the last few months picking up a new read and we finish another, and we think these selections are great for anyone looking to grow their business, be more present in a company (whether you run it or not), or simply just enjoy another perspective to guide you into a new venture.

Who Not How: The Formula to Achieve Bigger Goals Through Accelerating Teamwork
by Dan Sullivan with Dr. Benjamin Hardy
Sometimes we get really great ideas but don’t have the time or energy to give them the attention and work they deserve. Daily life and getting by can consume a lot, if not all, of your time and energy.
All you need is to form the right team around you, and the rest falls into place! You can achieve your goals with a team, while also helping them achieve their goals. I swear, it’s true!
Instead of asking yourself how you can take this on, expert coach Dan Sullivan knows the real question we should ask instead: “Who can do this for me?” Such a simple question has led billionaires and successful entrepreneurs like Dan to build businesses they love, while also getting personal freedom.

Free to Focus
by Michael Hyatt
A lot of us spend way too much time being distracted. Or we invest our time into activities that may move us ahead, but aren’t executed in the most efficient way. We forget to budget our time, plan ahead, or even prioritize the activities that refuel us, which can lead to burnout or missing great opportunities for growth.
Without realizing it, a lot of professionals clock over 40 hours of work a week, leaving less time to rest and exercise, or spend time with family and friends. We don’t notice it, but slowly work takes over precious time we should be spending doing the things we love.
With this amazing book, you’ll learn how to be productive in the most efficient way, and to make sure you’re getting the right things done. New York Times Bestselling author, Michael Hyatt, has created a total productivity system that will help you cut out the non-essentials, set boundaries, and delegate as needed.
