A list of favourite books read over the years that have helped me grow my business.
Books, CDs and Publications
Down the years, I have read so many books, listened to CDs and read publications of every variety.
Even after 30 plus years of business experience, I still have books on the go today with at least two being read in each month. Every time I go to an event and there is a book stall, I soon head there and have a browse.
Some books a few pounds and others head into big double figures.
Often it is the smallest book with the biggest impact.
My friend Jackie Barrie produced a series called Little Fish books. They are probably the most well thumbed that reside on my bookshelf. Packed full of tips, tricks and useful ideas.
So which are your favourites and why?
Here are some I suggest should be read and why:
How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

The most important publication for any network marketeer – Your Compensation Plan. Read it, and read it again, and understand how you can make money. In my business, it appears I have a reputation for knowing how to maximise my income. It is not something I boast about, it was something I heard from a leader when I first started. They all say copy the Leaders and that is what I do.
There are loads more books and I will add to this list from time to time.

BEST GROUNDS VISITED IN THE UK 2015/16
1. AYR UNITED – Somerset Park
A visit to Somerset Park is a 90 minute wallow in the way things used to be. An utterly brilliant ground.
2. BARROW – Holker Street
Finally managed to get to Holker Street after several previous attempts failed due to poor weather. Great ground that has retained character…

Worth a read, and explains a lot about my passion for AFC Wimbledon.
Even less impressed with a Mayor who interferes in the running of a city and the democratic process.
Down the years, many have joined a company and thought: ‘that is me set for life.’
Unfortunately this is no longer true. A job for life no longer exists alongside final pension plans. All consigned to history.
It has meant there has been a change of emphasis, when planning how your life will pan out.
The biggest issue is creating a growing income. Some sectors have not seen a pay rise in over four years, whilst others have seen such minimal rise that are not worth writing about.
Last night, I was speaking to a young lady who has been rewarded with a pay rise of 13p per hour before tax. Her part time job (22 hours) now pays an extra £2.86 per week before tax. Not even enough for a coffee in one of the tax dodging outlets on our High Street.
How can a person be expected to create a future with income like that?
Presently this young lady is around £200 per month short of income, and struggling to find a job that pays more, since employers feel she does not have the qualifications or experience.
I have offered to work with her and help improve the future prospects through support and training, and together we have established a route for the creation of extra monthly income based on part time activity (usually five to ten hours a week), which will continue to grow and grow. There is no cap on earnings.
This excites me, since it shows that multiple income streams is a positive way forward for a person, who previously may not have thought they had a way out of simply surviving.
For some of you, this will be true too, and if this rings a bell, then could I suggest checking out this link: Your route to new income streams there are three boxes to complete and an information pack will be sent to you immediately.
Through this company, I will be helping her become financially free and independent of outside concerns.
Some of her short term goals include:
Having a horse again, so she can go riding.
Having a life, rather than simply surviving.
Create enough income to open an animal sanctuary.
Affording a season ticket at rugby.
These are all attainable goals, and will be her motivation for success.
What goals do you have?
There is clear water ahead as we work together to create a new growing income.

So The Express thinks weeks of snow and cold, whilst Piers Crobyn considers five days.
Which do you believe?
Could this be about to happen again? In January 2010, Britain was Covered in Snow
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
According to forecasters, Britain is bracing for extreme winter conditions which might last for months, as falling temperatures turn torrential rain into severe blizzards.
Arctic SNOWBOMB to smash into Britain: Coldest winter in 58 YEARS now just days away
BRITAIN faces WEEKS of freezing blizzards, crippling snowfall and brutal winter storms as a savage turn in the weather plunges the ENTIRE COUNTRY into winter lockdown.
Blistering Polar gales, several feet of snow and near-record low temperatures will grind the country to a standstill until MARCH, forecasters warn.
The first taste of what could be a historic whiteout arrived this weekend blanketing parts of Scotland and Yorkshire in thick snow.

Source: Farewell to Soho’s Stockpot
I was introduced to The Stockpot in Kensington by my sister, when she worked at Harrods back in the 1970s, and then made a point of visiting Soho and Earls Court too.
Very welcoming and great value food.
I wish the owner an enjoyable retirement. Thank you for feeding us down the years.
