Fave Five Friday: 5 Books to Fuel Your Passion
We search for inspiration from those around us, podcasts, webinars and books. While we stretch ourselves to the max most days, we always find 10-15 minutes a day to read. Whether it's in the car waiting to pick up our kiddos, waiting to start a meeting or conference call, or even while we're curling our hair, because let's be real, that takes for-ever, we make sure to get in a daily reading session.
The average SEO of a company reads 12 books a year. That's 1 book per month. If you break down a 400 page book and read 14 pages a day, you’d finish reading a book each month. If you're a rockstar and can find 30 minutes a day, you can conquer two books in a month.
To get you started, we compiled our fave 5 books that will inspire and fuel your passion as an entrepreneur, blogger, lady boss or work at home mama.
