“Zillow Talk: The New Rules of Real Estate”
By Spencer Rascoff and Stand Humphries

As much as the authors would hate for me to use the word unique (read the book the find out why), there is no other way to describe this real estate book. It doesn’t give techniques, stories, or even opinions; just raw data. Anyone interested in the data behind real estate profits would love this book. The material is presented in a fun and easy to understand way, while being thoroughly researched and useful.

“Start” by Jon Acuff

Jon Acuff (www.jonacuff.com) first came to my attention through the Dave Ramsey (www.DaveRamsey.com/store) radio program for his first book “Quitter.” This follow-up to his previous success is a step-by-step guide to taking your life from “average to awesome.”

I found that it stands out for others in the crowded field of personal development books primarily because it offers real advice (not just a bunch of catchy quotes). Jon guides the reader thorough the process of changing your life by taking easy steps that anyone can master such as “being selfish at 5 am.” His style is entertaining and funny while being informative. I may just have to hire him to speak at our next conference.

The Automatic Customer is a great book for any entrepreneur. Using examples, John walks readers through the various ways to turn your business into a subscription business in order to help improve cash flow. I found this book particularly helpful in helping me to think outside the box and imagine the various directions in which I could take my company. The book also includes various formulas to help you determine if your subscription business is viable. I strongly recommend this book.
