I am extremely passionate about personal development and believe the greatest thing anyone can do for themselves and those around them is continue to grow and learn.

These are books EVERYONE can benefit from, and books I wish someone had told me about sooner. Enjoy!

Rich Dad Poor Dad is the best selling personal finance book of all time and for good reason. In this book, Kiyosaki breaks down the fundamentals of building wealth in easy to understand stories from his childhood. This book is very easy to read, yet has the ability to completely change your financial future.
The Richest Man in Babylon – George S. Clason
My first thought after finishing this book was “I’m pissed high schools don’t force every student to read this,” it was that good. I think of this book as the original Rich Dad Poor Dad; it teaches the fundamentals of building wealth through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon.

If you need a little extra motivation to get off your ass and go chase your dreams, this is the book to grab. Goggins survived a rough childhood and went on to become a Navy Seal, an ultra runner, and many other things. He’s one of the most badass dudes on the planet and his biography will certainly get you off the couch.
Lone Survivor – Marcus Luttrell
Most of you have probably seen the movie Lone Survivor with Mark Wahlberg. The book is better. WAY better. Lone Survivor is an eye witness account of Operation Redwings.
