Personal Development Books/Podcasts

Personal Development has long been confused with “Self-Help.” Although there is a place for that in the world, don’t shy away from Personal Development (PD) because you think it is the same thing. It is not! Reading and listening to PD has changed me in so many ways. I am more motivated and definitely smarter. I communicate more effectively and I listen to others with a better ear. It is not just for business folks. Anyone can use it for the betterment of themselves! Give it a try! Let me know what you think. The first one listed here is my personal favorite. I have not only read it 3 times, I have also gifted it several times as well! You can read books, of course, but you can also try apps that will read the books to you as you drive or cook. Podcasts are great, too!
