Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I am ESPECIALLY glad you are here, on this page! Today is my first ‘announcement’ for how I am celebrating my 30th Birthday! Each day this week between June 8th – June 14th I’ll be sharing something new and fun you can join in on.
So first up, not surprisingly, a book list! I am a huge reader. I believe in the changing power of books. I believe that by reading books we can learn at a rapid rate, gain lots of clarity into our lives, and enhance our knowledge and expertise.
As I start this 30th year, one thing I am committed to is reading one book a week for 30 weeks #30reads30weeks ! Here, I am outlining what I plan to read and when if you’d like to join along. Feel free to hop in and join at any point in time. I’d love to chat with you. If you join in the journey use #30reads30weeks so I can follow along in your progress.
All books I picked have picked cover topics surrounding business, spirituality, leadership, and finances.

At the start of each new quarter I reassess. I take some time to think about how things have gone in the past 90 days and determine what I need to do to make the next 90 days even better, more productive, and full of purpose. Have I stayed on track? Are my goals working? Do I need to change my goals? Is this system working for me? If not, what do I need to change?
As I looked back at this past quarter (January – March), I realized I got pretty off track of where I wanted to be. This was a hard quarter. But it was just a season, and luckily seasons are just that…seasons. Seasons pass and change. Hard seasons allow us to better appreciate the beautiful ones. More of this to come in my goals post so I won’t go into too much of it here…stay tuned tomorrow!
As I was reassessing where I’m at, I decided one thing I’d like to share more with you all during this 90 day season is what I’m reading and planning to read. Books are a big part of my life, but I rarely share what I’m reading and focusing on. So it’s time for a change! I’m ready to share more with you all on what I’m reading and why.
I believe that reading changes things. Books have changed my life in so many positive ways. I want to share more with you all on what I am reading each month because all that knowledge and growth doesn’t do any good being bottled up in me. I believe it’s our duty to help other and disseminate the knowledge we do have.
So, here we go!
In April I’m going I’m reading two books:
This will be my third time reading Essentialism, it’s SO good and is full of reminders I regularly need. Deep Work is new to me and I’m excited to dive in. Both of these books are great reads for anyone, so I’d recommend you join along if you’re interested!
If you’d like to join along reading with me this month, I’m posting my reading plan below. If you can’t join along this month you can always come back to this blog post and read at your own pace.
I’ll also be hopping on Facebook Watch each week updating and sharing my takeaways from my readings throughout the week.
