Listen & read

I love to read. You can usually find me with at least 1 book on me or in my vicinity! But being busy means my reading time has become more of a luxury some days.  But does the learning and motivation stop? Hell no! I've started incorporating Podcasts into my life so that while I'm in the car or on a walk I can take advantage of that time and use it to grow as a person. Below are a few of my personal favorite books and podcasts.  I hope you find as much inspiration and motivation in them as I do!  Xoxo - Emily
