Hi there, Celia here!

I can’t overstate the impact books and other adult education seminars/classes/videos have had on my life. Diet, exercise, finances, career, confidence, public speaking, problem solving, marketing, design, communication, technical skills all improved through reading.

Don’t have time? Well, neither do I, so I cheat using audio books.

I can’t help echoing Zig Ziglar’s avocation for ‘automobile university’. I will however broaden that. How about listening when you cook, clean, garden and exercise? I’ve managed to sneak in hours of reading every day this way and so can you.

Not sure where to start? Here’s my list of reads as of 01/27/14. You can read all my reviews in our marketing blog.
