Life Goals

Book Lists (Episode II)

Finished Books:

Smart Women Finish rich changed my life, and it deserves a post of its own. I run a business just fine, but when it came to personal finances I hated it and I knew that I should be in better shape then I was.  Turns out it was actually not as painful as I thought! I swear by this book.  The Power of Habit also changed my life (a few months of life changing books) because I figured out why I have the bad habits I have, and I actually CHANGED a few of them! I was pretty proud of myself.  And the others were also great for various reasons.  Eat that Frog can be summarized as: Do the one most important thing you have to do that day before 11am (i.e. the first thing in the morning).  How to Be a Woman, Lets Pretend this Never Happened (one of the funniest books I’ve read), and Loving Frank were also super.    The books I am currently reading:
