I agree it's important to read business books, do research and attend conferences to keep up my business knowledge and consulting skills. Despite my interest, I just don't have the time. Any ideas?
According to a number of studies, people who read at least 7 business books a year earn over 2.3X more than those who read just one. With an increasing emphasis on online and video as preferred ways to acquire information, books are losing their attractiveness as a way to keep up.
How many business books have you bought and haven't gotten around to reading? A possible solution is listening to an audio book or watching a video summary.
Whether for fee or free, you can find podcasts, audio books and even short videos to meet your learning plan for the year. Combine learning while driving, during exercise or in place of television.
There are a growing number of resources offering materials on leadership, technology, self-development and marketing. Two companies offering a wide variety of resources are Learn Out Loud and The Business Source, but there are more.
