Readers are leaders, you may well have heard that term before. I’ve always enjoyed reading, I enjoy learning new things, it boosts my capacity to understand and more importantly it empowers me to do more. It was whilst I was at a women’s retreat in October 2014, I made a conscience decision to increase my reading capacity. I set myself the awesome task of reading 52 books over 12 -18 months. My areas of interest embrace: Personal development, Business development, Politics, Religion, Economics, & Life stories / Autobiographies When was the last time you read a book, or a significant article? Do your daily reading habits center around tweets & facebook? I’d encourage you to challenge yourself to increase your reading habits. Reading has countless benefits.
