Thankfully, I've had a wee bit more time in December. And when time avails itself, I read. Maybe you have a few hours as well. If so, consider these books that I am currently reading.
If you're like me you learn something, and then, because you have to learn so many other things, you forget the first. Then when you need the information (in your brain), it's not there. This book provides practical ways to learn and retain the information you need--even as a CPA. Click the book to see it on Amazon.
Do you have employees that you desire to make better? Do you try to coach them but without result? They hear you, but no change occurs. The subtitle to this book says it all: Say Less, Ask More & Change the Way You Lead Forever. Stanier provides some very simple questions that I have been using--and they work! Click the book below to review it on Amazon.
My wife turned me onto this one. Jayber Crow, twice orphaned, makes his way through life. As I've listened to this story (I have it on Audible), it has stirred long-forgotten episodes from my childhood. Like me many years ago, he runs away from himself and then returns home. He becomes the real Jayber Crow--again. (The Audible version is wonderful.)
