Episode 146 – The Reading and Writing Resolutions Special

Happy new year!What one habit will make the biggest difference to you and your business in 2019? 

Billionaire Mark Cuban puts his success down to the fact that he spends 3 hours each day reading. 

‘I read every book and magazine I could. Heck, $3 for a magazine, $20 for a book. One good idea that led to a customer or solution and it paid for itself many times over.’

Warren Buffett said the same to a class of students at Columbia University: 

‘Read 500 pages… every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.’

If you do nothing more than commit to reading more business books in 2019, you’ll make a massive difference to your bottom line. But both Cuban and Buffett went further than this: they both wrote books as well as reading them. And that’s where the real magic happens. 

If your 2019 resolutions include writing more effectively for your business, this is the episode for you. Share on X Seven brilliantly practical tips from Extraordinary Business Book Club guests to help you establish a successful writing habit and get that book out of your head and into the world.

I’ve got a feeling that this is going to be a good year: start here.
