Positive Impact Recommended Reading

There’s no denying that books hold the most fascinating and captivating information. There’s been more than one evening with me awake at the wee hours glued to a book. To be honest, my husband has a slight ban on fictions books while we vacation. Apparently I need to actually go enjoy the places we travel to. Go figure.
Those aren’t always the books that change your life. Sure magical places in far off lands with sorcery delight your imagination. Who doesn’t love a good Quidditch match?
While enchanting, those aren’t the books that change your life. Unless of course you are J.K Rowling. Then those books change your life.
For the rest of us, a different genre of book is more likely to change your life. Yes, I’m talking about nonfiction books. The ones that typically have stale covers and don’t inspire late night readings.
But those boring covers and magical devoid story lines are actually the most powerful ones.
Now we interview a variety of movers and shakers on the show. Some are championing their efforts through their own social enterprise. Others are creating positive change through their role within a company (intrapreneur). While all of the books they recommend are incredible, some create a bigger impact depending on what path you’re on.
To help, we’ve divvied up the recommends into two categories. Below we have the MOST recommended books from our guests.
