The Sunday Post (Jan. 5)
The nice thing is, though, that it makes it wonderful to curl up on the couch, under a blanket, with a good book to read.
I’m currently reading “Style Statement” by Carrie McCarthy & Danielle LaPorte, and really enjoying it. It’s a workbook, of sorts.
I’m also reading one of the new books I bought: “The Sketchnote Handbook” by Mike Rohde. And I’m loving it! It’s all about how to take notes both in written & visual format. By combining the two styles, you ask your brain to remember better and you don’t have to write down every word — the visuals will do a better job of aiding you in getting the most out of what you’re hearing. Being that I’m a very visual learner, and that I am a creative, this book is right up my alley!
This past week, I finally finished reading “The Effortless Yes” by Julie Steelman. It was a fantastic book about learning to become better at sales, without being pushy or “sales-y”. I may buy my own copy at some point, as it’s a great reference. For now, though, I’ve got my notes.
Next up, I hope to finish reading my friend, Ryan Richardson’s, book, “Saving Face (Book)“, and then dig into “While Beauty Slept” by Elizabeth Blackwell. Both are review books.
My business is really starting to take off. I’ve got several clients lined up for January. And I’m excited to have made changes, recently, and had several of you join in! (Thank you!) I’m now offering book marketing & promotion, and am setting up a team of my own book reviewers who will help me get the word out about the books my authors have published! So, if you haven’t signed up yet, but want to, go on over and check out the details!
Lastly, if you missed it, I blogged about my goals for 2014, the other day, as well as my “one word” for the year, which is “free”. That’s part of why I’m reading “Style Statement” right now… it’s going to help with that goal.
Here’s to a great new year! Happy Reading, everyone!
