Time for the kiddies to go back to school…and there’s nothing wrong with joining them. 

If you’re like me, you consider yourself a life learner –

So you are probably on the lookout for something juicy to add to your library, your Kindle or your podcasting app.  

Yep, this time around this is more than a reading list.  This time around, I’m adding my favorite podcasts to the listening list).

Back to School Reading List & Listening List

Reading List

You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living and Awesome Life – Jen Sincero

Since she seems to have peered into my soul with this one, I feel we’re on a first name basis.  Jen does not pull any punches.  There’s a little bit of woo-woo in here but it’s at a minimum because she is NOT about the BS with this book here.  I dare you to read it and not come away with a ton of notes and without being a badass!

The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur: The tell-it-like-it-is guide to cleaning up in business, even if you are at the end of your roll – Mike Michalowicz

When you run out of options, then what?  TPEs do what they have to do against the odds.  Nothing illegal (of course) and nobody got hurt during the writing or reading of this one but excuses get SMASHED!  Like a pumpkin…

The Pumpkin Plan: A Simple Strategy to Grow a Remarkable Business in Any Field – Mike Michalowicz

Which leads me to my next thingy… Be the best you that you can possibly be.  Have ridiculous focus – instead of being the Jack of all trades – doing all the things – be the Master of A thing.  Pumpkin Plan out your thing!

Listening List

As promised, I gave you a few things for your library, hands and eyes, now a few gems for your ears.

Screw The Nine To Five Podcast – Jill and Josh Stanton

Although, Jill and Josh have retired from the podcasting game (and I was sad), their podcast lives on with a ton of earworms for side hustlers and business vets.

The Get Paid Podcast – Claire Pelletreau

Now THIS is the podcast I would have done if I podcasted (and I still might).  Claire gets really real about money and right to business.  She asks her guests how they get paid AND what their actual numbers are.  It’s rare to get this real in this crazy online business world.  Gotta love it.

The Being Boss Podcast – Kathleen Shannon & Emily Thompson

Another one for side hustling creatives!  I am not a side hustler but I appreciate the nudges and reminders and brutal honesty of these ladies that chat with us here.  A little loony at times but in a good way.  


A little something for everyone – coaches, creatives, consultants; newbies, biz vets.  Books or Podcasts.

Enjoy & let me know how you like them.  

What’s on your lists?  And what are you reading?  What podcasts are you listening to?

Until next time,
J
