Priority Pursuit


Oct 27, 2021

029. In the 21st century, there are countless ways to learn. I mean, there are podcasts, online courses, YouTube videos, conferences, workshops, masterminds, and so many other options. 

These are all great resources and opportunities; however, I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I need to learn the old fashioned way with black text on white paper where I can write notes in the margins, make highlights, and dogear the pages I want to return to. 

With this in mind, in this episode of Priority Pursuit, we’re talking books. And, I’m excited to share what I believe are 10 must-read books for creative entrepreneurs! 

Note: You’ll find links to purchase each of these books from both Amazon and Second Flight Books below each description. Second Flight Books is a wonderful bookstore in Lafayette, Indiana. If you can, I want to encourage you to show Second Flight Books a little love by shopping small and purchasing from this local bookstore!
