Writing A Book Has Taught Me…

Writing a book is a lot harder than it seems. I know this because I’ve been writing and editing my new book, Reel Leadership, for the past couple of months. It has been toil, sweat, and tears going through the process. Today is the day I launch the pre-sale campaign on Indiegogo. For those reading this today, I ask you to help support the launch of this book by committing to buy a physical copy of Reel Leadership or one of the special perks (Click HERE to support the campaign) when the pre-launch goes lives at 5:00 PM EST tonight. If you’re a business owner and want multiple copies or to have me present, reach out to me via email (can be found on the Indiegogo campaign page) and we can make a special package just for you.

With all of that, I am still excited and proud of what writing a book has taught me.

I love sharing new books with my readers. I normally do this at the end of the month through the 5 Books Leaders Should Read In XXX. That post is still coming. However, I also wanted to recognize the power of audiobooks.

Amazon’s Audible.com (You can get up to 2 free books using my affiliate link) hosts a lot of books. It can be hard to figure out what book to listen to.

Well, I run a lot. During my runs, I listen to podcasts or audiobooks from Audible. Many of these books are leadership focused. My library consists of over 500 audiobooks. I’ve listened to a lot of those.

Today, I want to share with you what I consider to be the top 10 leadership books on Audible. I also hope you’ll pick up one or two of the books to listen to while you’re commuting to the office, out for a run, or lounging around the house. These books will help you become a better leader.
