A Book: Start.

Instead of my normal Friday post, I thought I would try something different. I read a few business books or motivational books every now and then, and thought I might share.

In transparency, the links I post here to the books are, in fact, affiliate links with Amazon, and I will get some small chunk of change if you buy a book I am sharing here through this link. If you don't like that, you can always go directly to Amazon and search for it, or hit up a bookstore without using my links. I won't be upset. Mostly because I won't know you made that choice, but also because $0.11 a book or whatever is not a steady stream of income that I would depend on for anything.

I'm not going to review the books, per se, but if I found them worth reading, I'll share and you can choose to ignore or buy the book and read it or not.

Anyway, I just finished this book last month: Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters by Jon Acuff.

The book is an attempt to look through the lives of successful people and break it down into phases. Jon tries to explain how you can accelerate some of the phases and what steps awesome people take on that road. I've found I enjoy Jon's style of writing and find it pretty accessible. You can also check his blog out if you want to read more of his stuff.

Anyway, drop me a line and let me know if you are interested in this kind of stuff. I am currently in the middle of a book on product launches that I will share once I've finished it as well. Happy Friday!
