The Best Book Recommendations I Ever Got

…I first got introduced to direct response marketing when my friend (and now Inner Circle Member) Jon Toy recommended Dan Kennedy’s “No B.S. Book for Direct Response Marketing.” It changed forever the way I grew my business. Letting marketing do it for me.

We started our twice a week company check in meetings back when someone recommended I read Traction. It was a GAME-Changer. It helped me to systematize our operations and got us into position of being able to sell the firm. We used these same systems when growing Powerful Professionals today.

I’m not going to lie. I suck at money…left to my own devices I would give it all away and then freak out when it comes to paying the mortgage. Thankfully, I know my shortcomings and sought out advice. A friend recommended this book to me and it dramatically changed the way we managed the money in our company. EVERYONE that reads this book has a similar reaction. Want a shift in profits this year ? Read now.

One of my coaches recommended this book. Loved, loved, loved it. Not only is Jon laugh-out-loud-snort-laugh kind of funny, he’s incredibly effective. I use a lot of this book in my own coaching. If you have any sort of goal you want to complete for this year, this is a must-read.

My good friend and North Star Coach, Jason Tucker recommended that I read this book by Andy Stanley.  It is brilliant. Not just for growing a church, but the thought process around making your company/membership/coaching group a welcoming space for not just the old guard but the newbies as well. If you have customers or want to have customers, get this book.

  1. I just listened to the audio book of Traction and it’s great! I read Never Split the Difference after seeing Chris Voss speak (so I guess the recommendation come from him) and I love his stories and his views/tactics for negotiation.

    The game changer for me personally was Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. It’s a great book and also being introverted like her, I think about this book whenever I’m confronted with doing something “extroverted” that makes me uncomfortable. I’ve been able to do take on some new things that I normally wouldn’t have done.

  2. Cashvertising. Copywriting Secrets. Influence of persuasion.

    Maybe my top three.

    I say they are mandatory!)

    Thanks for the list

  3. All of these books sound amazing! I recommend “Over Deliver”. But I need to check these out for sure!

  4. I really like Building a Storybrand by Donald Miller because it talks about how to get into clients’ minds through the ancient human art of storytelling. Selling was tough for me to get my head around because it felt sleezy, but his approach helped me see it in a brand new light.

    Thanks for sharing your favorites, too!!

  5. The E-Myth by Michael Gerber was a huge asset when my husband and I decided to go into business together. I reread it recently as we have hired our first full-time manager!
