Meet the Team
I’m an accidental entrepreneur (bought a company about 10 years ago), an avid reader and the author of a business book. Most of the entrepreneurs I know love learning from others, and as such, are big consumers of business books (audio books, old school print or ebooks). But the challenge is choosing what to read. I’m hoping this site helps address that thirst for learning. I would love to hear from you about areas you are seeking to address, or books that have changed your life. I also happen to be a massive podcast fan…stay tuned for podcast recommendations.
As a writer, I have to admit I can be pretty picky about my books. Even the best story can be ruined by bad grammar or unnecessarily verbose sentence structure. For me, there’s nothing better than getting stuck into a historical novel that brings the past to life and challenges me to reflect on the way we lead our lives today. I’m one of those people who always has several books on the go; these currently include a book of essays by Christopher Hitchens, a book on the Somme by war historian Peter Barton and ‘The School Bag’ poetry anthology.
I have always believed in the power of books when it comes to teaching, sharing knowledge and opening minds. In our fast-paced era, I enjoy stopping a moment to read a few pages (often a lot more!) and share my best finds. So taking on the role of social media coordinator for My Business Bookclub was a no brainer. Every day I discover new books worth reading and even more so sharing with our community. Have you read a book that you loved? Are you looking for more amazing reads? Then get in touch! You can find us on @mybizbookclub on Twitter and Mybusinessbookclub on Instagram.
