 When I was 49 years old, after building two multimillion-dollar businesses, I reached two startling conclusions about myself: First, I didn’t know why I had done it. Second, I hadn’t found the fulfillment that I assumed success would bring. Thus began a 25-year journey of self-discovery and personal and professional development that led me to my present career as a business coach, where I help people get their lives and their livelihoods unstuck. In this book, I have distilled my journey into easily accessible lessons about professional enrichment, best practices, leadership, and the idea that a successful business should give its owner a lifestyle, not a life sentence.

Boundaries for Leaders


Whether you are starting a business or own a more mature company, this book is essential to learning proper boundaries. So many times, I have seen owners not understand this simple discipline. In Dr. Cloud’s book, you will learn about the boundaries that leaders must set to be successful.

Start with Why


Simon will explain that successful companies all exist because of their “Why.” In this book, he will lay out why it is important to know your “Why,” but don’t ignore your “How” or “What.”

Start with Why by Simon Sinek

Think and Grow Rich


This book was first printed in 1937, and the principles are classic. This is the book that Bob Proctor has carried around with him for more than fifty years. There are thirteen steps to riches and about how to outwit the six ghosts of fear.
It is not a novel, it is a textbook. This book is about the money-making secrets of over five hundred exceedingly wealthy men whom he carefully analyzed over a long period.

The E Myth Revisited


This book is about “Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What do Do about It.”
I must tell a story about this book. I have the book on a CD set. My wife and I were pulling out of Atlanta on a trip back to Ohio and had about a ten-hour drive. I asked her if it would be OK to play the CD. She looked at me and said, “You are not asking me to listen to that all the way home! I put the exclamation point instead of a question mark because she was not happy. So I said, “I’ll just play one.” And she gave me permission. About an hour into the CD I looked over and a tear was running down her cheek. They were talking about Grandma teaching Sara how to make pies at her kitchen table, and that reminded my wife of when her grandmother taught her how to make pies. My wife became engaged because the book uses Sara’s Pie Company as an example throughout, and my wife now wanted to know how it ended. When the CD’s ended somewhere around Akron, Ohio, my wife exclaimed, “That was awesome!”

You Were Born Rich

In Bob’s own words: “It will help you piece together the puzzle we most often refer to as ‘Life’, so you can build a picture of prosperity in your mind and then go on to create that prosperity in your life.”

Working with the Law


Holliwell is saying “simply that spiritual laws are Truth principles we can learn to understand, apply and that the natural consequence of applying them is a happy, harmonious, and prosperous life.”

Working With The Law: 11 Truth Principles for Successful Living by Dr. Raymond Holliwell

The Art of Living

In twenty-three chapters, Bob lays it all out. It is one of those books that you will have a hard time putting down. I’ve got more pages paper-clipped, with sentences highlighted and underlined than any other book I have read.

The Art of Living by Bob Proctor

As a Man Thinketh

Originally published in 1902. From the forward: “This little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written-upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that “They themselves are makers of themselves”

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

The ABCs of Success

This book has been created from radio shows that Bob conducted for a number of years. Scripts were selected and edited for the purposes of the book by Sandy Gallagher, Gina Hayden, Corey Kelly, and Shelia Lothian.
This book is also in a CD format, which you can buy. I recommend getting the CD as it is in Bob’s voice and is an excellent way to reprogram the hard drive in your head with all his jewels of wisdom.
