Recommended Reading and Listening

In 2011, in a conversation with a close and valued friend I received a verbal spanking. I was discussing my internal conflicts of whether or not to leave the police department and strike out on my own. This person, in very frank fashion, reminded me that for the last several years all I had done was read about and listen to podcasts about being an entrepreneur. She went on to tell me that it was obvious that this was what I wanted to do and I should just get going! It is comments like this that makes her a close and very valued friend.

These comments hung in my sub-conscious mind for weeks until I realized that she was exactly correct. We all gravitate towards what we want or what makes us happy. For some, it is a type of television show or music. For others it is a sport. For me, for years it had been books and podcasts about entrepreneurialism and the lifestyle that was possible with self-employment.

Prior to that point and since, books and podcasts have been crucial to my self-education as well as my motivation and self-confidence in going out on my own. I did a lot of searching, reading and listening to come up with the below list. The books and podcasts listed here are the ones that I found particularly useful and beneficial.
