    Finished with 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing.

    Currently reading "Lifestyle Brands - A Guide to Aspirational Marketing".
    The book is very good but the writing style is very very dry and very academic aka
    textbook-like.

    Also, if anyone has any good recommendations on lifestyle marketing/branding type of books, please post the titles here so I can gobble them up. :smile2:

    The miracle morning. Keeping an open mind and giving the 30 day challenge a shot. I'm on day 4 and have felt more energy throughout the day, but still not feeling like it's Christmas morning everytime I open my eyes at 4:30 a.m. lol.

    The motivation to stick it all out is the respect of the recommendation by many of you.

    Next up is think and grow rich.

    Just finished Milk The Pigeon: A Field Guide For People Lost In Their 20's by Alex Haynes. It's a great book about a guy who travelled to China to learn Gung Fu for a year after quitting his job then when he came back to the States fell into a massive depression. Some key tips were:

    • Just do s**t to find your passion
    • Travelling won't make you happy
    • Purpose/meaning makes people happy
    • Build your personal brand( Justin Beieber got his first gig through YouTube)
    • Sell yourself by adding value(If you want that job/career)

    Busy reading Unscripted on the way to any from work. Clive Cusslers - Emperor‘s revenge while mowing the lawn or folding the washing and the 80 / 20 rule by Richard Koch before bed.

    Generally I am always busy with 3 books at a time.

    The E-Myth Revisited, great reinforcement for me trying to automate and scale my current business, and for my vision/value prop/systems for the new venture. To think I could have read this 25 years ago...

    Going to recommend this to two people I know who built themselves jobs.

    They built their own businesses from the "technicians" perspective (in e-myth terminology), they both work "in" their businesses rather than "on" them.

    Both are either run ragged or feeling trapped, and looking for a way out.

    I think the first half of the book is a great wake up call for someone in this position.

    So like MJ'S story of the coffee shop owner who was still tied to working 80 hours a week on her coffee shop?

    If you liked that one, you might like his other book Pre-suasion. Great read. My favorite.

    Currently, I am reading the Private Lender Playbook by Brant Phillips with Nathan Long. It is a book about lessons in private mortgage lending. I feel like the book would be a good resource for anyone who wants to learn more about how people are lending their money (especially using their IRAs) to fund deals, earn interest, and make a fair return in today's real estate market. I like the book so far.

    I don’t read books, I don’t have time for it at all, although I bought books on sale that I wanted to read for a long time, I’ll need to start reading them.

    Currently reading E-Myth after seeing this title posted in one of the posts here.

    I'm at page 83 of the ebook and the author talks about some Business Format Franchise thing and how the true product of a business is not the product itself but the business (is he referring to the experience that the business can provide to the customers?). I hope he explains what all these means in later chapters cos it's sounding a bit abstract to me right now.

    Like how those wise old man on Wudang Mountain in remote China telling you stuff like "In emptiness exists existence and in existence, there is emptiness".

    I hope the book is not about asking readers to buy a franchise cos if it is, imma gonna demand a refund and throw rotten pies at the author's face.

    I've been reading less lately but have been reading more books on copywriting. These include:

    * The copywriters handbook

    Also done some Udemy courses relating to copy writing.

    Seriously, I'm waiting for The Fastlane Millionaire to arrive, don't know if you heard about that book.
    I also ordered Unscripted.
