It’s no secret that I love audio books.
It’s not just the convenience of listening to a book while doing 100 other things. I truly think it’s more impactful for me to hear the book as told by the person who wrote it. It’s almost like having an actual conversation with them.
Not to mention they fire up my inner girl boss and kick my butt into action. And today? I’m sharing with you 3 of my absolute favourites at the moment. Let’s jump in!
1. Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It In Your Career. Rock Social Media by Aliza Licht
With a title like that I don’t think there’s anyway you CAN ignore this book. Actually, funny story friends. I originally got the hard copy of this book and read 5 pages. There’s just something about trading my time that I can’t get on board with anymore. Cue the audio book.
Aliza’s Leave Your Mark is a fantastic book not only about social media or your job. It’s truly about kicking ass in life. I love her book because she takes you through life from her eyes and is extremely open and honest about her experiences in the fashion industry. AND I’ve had so many “ah-ha” moments it’s actually not even funny! Aliza keeps a light hearted and funny tone throughout the whole book while instilling some serious knowledge on you. If you’re looking for a kick in the butt to get yourself going Leave Your Mark is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
2. She Means Business. Turn Your Ideas Into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur by Carrie Green
Girlfriend. GIRL-FRIEND. This is a book I will seriously never stop preaching about. I legitimately finished this book in three days, and I’ve got the pages of notes to prove it. Carrie is so freaking smart it honestly amazes me. Her book walks you through everything from branding to email marketing and everything she says just makes sense.
Carrie also has a very strong background in Facebook, an area I don’t really pay tons of attention to. So it’s super refreshing to be able to learn so much about a platform I’m not particularly great with. She offers you tons of free resources within the book and she’s amazing at shaking up your way of thinking. If you’re looking for your next girl boss book to dive into, Carrie’s is the one.
3. The Big Life by Ann Shoket
Another amazing fashion icon who has really made me take a step back and look at my path. She’s got an incredibly witty cadence and a little bit of a sly vibe – and I absolutely LOVE. Not only is The Big Life actually a good read, it provides you with actionable steps so yo can actually make changes on whatever topic is being covered. My favourite resource was the list of questions that Ann asks around her dinner table during her ah-mazing “networking” parties. (Ann, if you’re reading this – I’d love to attend!) With things like “What did you imagine your life could be life when you were sixteen years old?” Ann actually makes you search for authentic answers.
Something else I found absolutely amazing about this book was the fact that it is designed to teach you how to craft your passion into your career. Which I mean HELLO who wouldn’t want that? Every minute I listened to this book I was so inspired to head out and kick ass when it came to my business. And let me tell you a secret friends, I’ve been implementing some her strategies and it’s working. If you’re looking for an amazing career/lifestyle/self help/badass book to read, The Big Life is it.
