Bob’s Booklist

Becoming successful is not an event. Becoming successful is a lifetime journey with hills, valleys, and plateaus.

I hate the plateaus. They are typically caused by some kind of invisible limiter. The limiter is not an outside force imposed on me, but is usually something I have personally done or am not doing. My worst limiter is me! Same goes for you. That’s why successful people are voracious readers. The average American millionaire reads at least one non-fiction book every month. Leaders are readers!

I got hooked and have been reading all I can for years to be more successful. I want you and your organization to be successful, too. If you would like a personal recommendation based on where you currently are in your journey, email me at Or pick any book here and start reading today!
