The greatest gift that I can give?

Featured | Financial Education

Estimated reading time: while you make a cup of tea!

  • 88% of millionaires read every day for education and career growth

  • 63% of wealthy people listen to audio books or podcasts on the way to/from work

  • But how do they find the time?

Now, I love personal development - but, like you, I’m always short on time.

So, when I received an email entitled ‘Read a business book in 12 minutes!’ I was intrigued!

It helped that the sender was Jason Butler; a highly respected personal financial wellbeing expert, well-known author and speaker - and a seriously time-starved chap.

His email introduced me to a service that has changed my life; it’s one I want to share with you.

It’s helped me enormously - and I think it might be of interest to you, if you’re as keen on personal development as me.

Invest 12 minutes – gain years of wisdom – and self-improve

I used to feel good if I read a business book a week…even if it meant burning the midnight oil, reading in bed and annoying my wife!

But it turns out, there’s this guy called Steve Cunningham who reads a new business book every single day.

Reading a Business Book a Week

Steve is the founder of Readitfor.me - he and his team turn each book they read into an impactful and accessible summary, using animated video, audio and text.

Steve says:

“Readitfor.me was developed based on research into how people learn, behave and act - therefore taking it beyond just summarizing books.  

“We take the world’s best business and personal development books, and turn them into engaging, zero-preparation workshops.”

This service has completely transformed my ability to research new ideas and develop useful insights, which I use in my work every day.

I benefit from it so much that I’ve bought an inexpensive subscription for everyone at AES.

Different days have different topics – leadership, self-improvement, marketing, innovation etc.

Here’s a summary of their service:

Readitfor.me is a way for individuals and teams to learn, retain and apply the ideas from the best business and personal development books the world has to offer…

“We help people spark the conversations that can unlock their greatest work.”

Individuals and Teams to Learn, Retain and Apply Ideas

You can try it out for  7 days for free, then tell me what you think.

If you still aren’t sure, I was given 100 FREE temporary subscriptions - just contact me with your name and best email address, and I’ll gift you one of these so you can take a closer look

I hope it adds as much value to your life as it has to mine.

PS. If 12 minutes is still too long for you - you can find many of the world’s best business and self-improvement books summarised in 3 sentence or less here.
