I set myself a new goal to read two books a month, since they offer an outstanding wealth of learning – my favourite books are self-development ones, they contain so much knowledge that I use to improve my life and ultimately work towards being the best version of myself.

The barefoot investor by Scott Pape is one of the best selling books in Australia at the moment. It is very well written in a simple language that is easy to understand, even with a topic as extensive as money.

It’s exciting to learn about a new subject of life and develop the necessary mindset to eventually be an Entrepeneur in the future.
Lately I’ve desired to have more people in my life with influence, successful people that I can look up to and use as my role model to push me further and inspire me to take action.

We can find the answer we are looking for in someone elses words – Recreate habits of successful people to achieve our dreams.
