Start With Why

I believe that everything needs to start with why. I know why I get out of bed every morning to do what I do… do you?

“Start With Why is for those who want to inspire others and for those who want to find someone to inspire them.”

Seth Godin is one of my favourite authors; so it was hard to pick just one to recommend! Purple Cow is about the why, the what and the how of remarkable.

“You’re either a Purple Cow or you’re not. You’re either remarkable or invisible. Make your choice.”

 

I discovered Bernadette Jiwa’s books via a Seth Godin recommendation.

He said (and I agree!): “A book that ought to be read by everyone on your team, and somehow hidden from your competitors.”

This book offers a step-by-step process to help you talk about your business, helping you to clarify your message.

“Every day, most business leaders make a mistake that costs them money: they don’t explain clearly what it is their company does.”

 

Lots of reading means lots of ideas… so you need some good habits to put them into action!

One of my favourite productivity books, Atomic Habits has some quick wins as well as long term suggestions for things you should start doing and stop doing, to get remarkable results.

A guidebook to the simple philosophy of creating content that answers your customers’ questions.
