Book Recommendations

I am a fan of audiobooks, as previously mentioned.  I understand that everyone is not, so I have included links below that will allow you to choose your medium. I have listened to these books and provided a short review, in my own words. Keep scrolling to see a larger collection of books.

If you have ever wanted to learn something but didn't know where to start or how to learn, read (or listen to) this book. It's full of inspiring stories of people who dove in head first and didn't look back and an outline to get you started on your Ultralearning journey.


This was a great audio book for me. I have read reviews that some think it is just a podcast disguised as a book. Honestly, if it helps you out or if you learn something from it, does it really matter what it's called? This auido book was a last minute purcahse and alerted me about burnout before I let it take over. Read more about my story in my blog post Burnout: My Story and Suggestions for Prevention.


If you are new to self care or need a new game plan this book will probably help you.This book includes suggestions to help you figure out how to live your best life wihle staying motivated and fighting anxiety. I noticed that it included a lot of things I was already doing, but it helped me organize them in a better way. 

I read this book with my team at work. Each week we read a level and joined a call to discuss what we read. It was really helpful for us, especially as a team who works 100% virtual with customers located across the country. This book is all about fine tuning your customer service and turning your customers into your brand advocates. It's a great read, and a really good group reading project for team building. Read this if you want to take your brand to the next level! 
Because I personally experienced professional burnout I'm always looking for the next suggestion for prevention. This book is one of "The Great Courses" and I absolutely love it. Not only does it talk about ways to identify, remediate and prevent burnout, it also gives you a step by step guide and an entire chapter walks you through using the method. It even includes examples. This is a must read for anyone struggling with the symptoms of burnout, and anyone who wants to prevent it. 

This year I participated in a mentor circle where I discovered that I want to work on my leadership skills. This book was already in my reading list this year so I jumped right in. 

I love this book because it talks about being a servant leader and gives you real life examples of lfie and death sitatuions where leaders saved the day. After all the  stories and motivation, there is a short "test" and an action plan. If you are want to learn how to be a great leader, if you are looking to sharpen your leadership skills or if you need another perspective on leadership, this book is for you.
