What I'm Reading (Series 1)

Where are my book lovers at? I'm a voracious reader and no subject or genre is off limits. These past few months I've been really focused on making 2023 a work smarter, not harder year. We did a lot last year and ended up being really burnt towards the last part of 2022.

I love a good self-help book, especially this time of year. It's time for reflections, refocusing, resolutions and for making a commitment to motivate, inspire, and encourage yoursrlf all year long. These 9 books are an excellent starting point to help you reach your goals. I've read all of these and some of them more than once.

  1. You Are a Badass At Making Money by Jen Sincero is a great book for anyone looking to make positive change in their life and achieve their goals. I"ve read everything by Jen Sincero. If you are new to her, check out You Are A Badass and then collect her other books. I love her down to earth and snarky style.

  2. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert aka Eat Pray Love is a wonderful read for anyone looking to tap into new wisdom and creativity. Whether you are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges at work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse your everyday life with more mindful and passion, Big Magic is for you.

  3. The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson is a must-read for anyone looking to make real, lasting change in their life. This book teaches you that little habits each and every single day create the big picture. These habits are easy to do, easy not to do, but which decision will give you the slight edge?

  4. A Year of Positive Thinking by Cyndie Spiegel is an excellent book for anyone looking to work on improving their mindset and outlook on life. It's a daily bite size quote or way of thinking to take with you all day long.

  5. Finding the Way by Cap Treeger is a great book for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of their life’s purpose in an entrepreneurial field. A tale of mentorship, hard truths, and the path to success.

  6. Creative Careers by B. Jeffrey Madoff is a great resource for anyone looking to get their career off the ground. The back cover made me grab this book. "In one of the most popular classes at Parsons School of Design, B. Jeffrey Madoff gave students a reality check: "Most of us have had the feeling of 'I could've done that,' whether at an art gallery, watching a performance, or finding a new product or even a new business idea. What's the difference between you and them? They actually did it. You didn't." Made me want to jump right in! How's that for motivation?

  7. The 1 Page Marketing Plan by Alan Dib is a great book for entrepreneurs and small business owners. It's focus is to get new customers, make more money, and stand out from the crowd.

  8. The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is a great read for anyone looking to get their creative juices flowing. I read this back in art school and found myself re-reading it these past few months. It's a weekly program that's fun and thought provoking.

  9. Last but certainly not least, The Creative License by Danny Greggory is a great book for anyone looking to explore their creative side. It's a visual feast of illustrations and endless ideas for drawing, painting, and just exploring the visual art world.

We wish you all the best on your journey to achieving your 2023 goals and we hope the above books help you along the way! Be sure to follow Our Technicolor Life on Pinterest for more tips and book recommendations throughout the year.
