The purpose of this post is to share with you the books that have had the biggest impact on my life, helped my business and changed the way I think so they can help you as well. Most of my mentors I have never met but I have read and lived their words. A book can truly change your life for ever if you read it, do the exercises and live it.

I wanted to warn you! This post is all about me (Alan). Which is not my most comfortable thing to write or talk about. I much prefer to talk about business, learning or finance! But I think there will be some value here for you from how I approach and think about things that you can apply to your world!
Things have gotten better; with books on how to start up with little money, podcasts about innovative entrepreneurship methods and lots more blogs on the subject. But the general advice about how to start a business from banks, universities and other traditional institutions still sucks.
I have been thinking about starting a podcast for years. Maybe now is the time? Maybe you would like to be involved? Maybe we really can change the way entrepreneurship is taught and have an impact on the world?
She composed a brand new song which she played daily for all of us staying there. She had the idea to record the song and put it out onto YouTube for other people to listen to. When we got home she studied articles and YouTube videos about how to record your music and get it onto YouTube. We designed some cover art and put it out into the world last week. You can listen to the music whilst reading the article by clicking on it above!
But why should you care? Katie recorded something, put it out there and then what? There is Magic and Power in putting yourself out into the world but people don't do it. Why not?
