5-Books-Everyone-Should-Read-Before-25

For those who know me, I’m a voracious reader. One of my firm beliefs is that “Leaders are readers.” Books don’t serve merely as fine decor, but a tool for leaders to expand their horizons, absorb the world, and inspire them to achieve their maximum potential.

As a student of leadership, there’s lots of books I have enjoyed reading on this topic. But one that I come back to time to time is Dave Ramsey’s “EntreLeadership.” If you haven’t got a hold of this book, I’m not sure what you’re waiting for.

In fact, I believe in the message so much that I bought 20 copies of the book. Why? I invested all this money because of one, singular belief: “Everything rises and falls on leadership.”

These words uttered by one of the finest leadership experts John Maxwell resonates to the very soul of my life. In fact, the engine that runs my day starts and ends with a clear vision. That is, to develop the next generation of leaders – salt and light – who will influence the seven spheres of influence (aka seven mountains of culture).

As a big thank you to my readers, I’m giving away a copy of EntreLeadership.”
