Over the years I have spent 1000's of hours reading, writing, re-reading, working on myself, and taking notes. Some books were worthwhile, and many not. I'm often asked what books (and videos) I've found most helpful. So, I thought it would be a benefit if I provided a list of books that made the cut for each category necessary to bring your life to the next level.

I will add more to the list as I continue to read, write, and grow.


I also recommend bookmarking this page for your reference and convenience.
