My 2019 Goal to read 100 Books!

I have always been goal driven but most of my goals have been business related and financially driven.  After resigning from my job in 2018, I decided my future was going to look different and I wanted to do things that I had always wanted to do but never took the time to do.  In 2018, I decided to make some changes in my life. First change was to start working out so I started my workout journey.  I am excited to say, I now walk 3 to 5 miles a day because of making this goal a priority. You see, we can all do anything we want, it just takes discipline and desire.  The same for Financial Freedom and taking back control of your money and your time.   In 2019, my goal was to read 100 books.  Yes, 100 books!  It was a lofty goal and lots of these books I did on audible.  I love audible so while I am doing my walk every morning, I am listening to a great book.  I wanted to share my list with you.  They are in order of when I read them in the year. Of course, you will notice a lot of books about money and financial freedom due to the fact that I was researching for my own book:  Down Home Money which will be out in June 2020!    It was really hard to pick my top 5 books for 2019 and here they are:
