Read today, profit tomorrow!

Everyday I start out with a cup of coffee and a good book on motivation, success, understanding people, etc.

This daily reading helps me understand customers, my family and even the children that I meet when I’m filling gigs here in Tampa. I’ve been a daily reader for the last two years, and during that time I’ve improved a ton of things in my personal life.

Average people don’t read, they don’t excel, they don’t lead dynamic lives. Every millionaire I know reads on a daily basis and works on themselves throughout their career. It costs very little to read 10 minutes each day, yet the long term results are massive.  

Here are 5 great books that I would recommend to anyone on my Balloon Distractions or Life Leadership teams, whether they are a 60 year old Regional Leader or a 16 year old entertainer.

I’ve included a link to Amazon so that you can buy each book as an inexpensive used paperback, usually for less than $5 a copy.

Just click on the link, it will take you directly there.

The financial return you will get from actually using this knowledge is potentially millions of dollars, check it out.

I wish someone had directed me to these books when I was 20 years old, and I’m glad that I’ve finally found them at 42.  

Happy reading!

  1. Ben,
    You are so right. I remember reading a book a few years back by Paul Zane Pilzer called the next millionaires written in 2006.
    In that book he explained how because of computers and the internet the amount of information doubles every two years.
    He said everything changes at the speed of thought. Life leadership if a prime example of what he was saying back then.
    The new Life/Leadership book of the month for February, Paradigm Shift explains the 7 new realities of success in the new
    economy that I believe Life/leadership is at the for-front of. Early adapter’s of these changes will reap the reward of the trends that will become normal for all.

  2. I really enjoyed the read Ben. It was very insightful and inspiring, especially when considering how technology is advancing at light speed. The world is becoming smaller and, with the advent of so many applications, global connectivity has a whole new meaning. When I have free time I’d love to get on a zoom call. However, I’m extremely busy between the two roles im currently joggling. I do recognize this as a major opportunity and I am excited to see how BD and LIFE leadership grow in tandom with each other – as they are highly complimentary!
