Summer Reading | Ladyboss + Entrepreneur Edition

Happy almost Summer! So I just looked up when the official first day of summer is and apparently it's June 20. Depending on where you live and also if you're currently in school or not, your Summer probably already started! One of the most common goals that many people set out to accomplish during the Summer, including myself is to read more. I do enjoy the occasional fiction tales, but as someone who is busy building a brand and platform I try and use the time I set for reading, to be a time for growing and expanding my thinking. If you have goals, then you need to be doing something everyday that will bring you closer to that goal. Never stop growing and never stop learning. If you are not learning, you're not growing, which basically means goals aren't getting accomplished. 
Summer month's can become your moments of success. Use this time when most take a break, to equip and challenge yourself. 

I have shared an eclectic bunch for you to check out, but honestly these ones are here for you use as a starting point to discovering what ignites that momentum inside yourself. Personally I really enjoy biographies on athletes or something in the sport world, so I did include a couple of those. Reading books from today's top achievers is almost like being personally mentored by them. How awesome! 

So, some (fun) Summer homework for you: find your go-to book that you reach for when you need some extra inspiration and encouragement.
