Anyone who is looking for a major life change - a new job, a career path that’s unusual, a strategy to start their own side hustle that’ll generate millions a year in income, is looking for advice.

Odd Summer Reads to Help You Get an Odd Job

Something you should know about me is that every single year of my life (since I was 6), I owed the library a ton of money.

I’ve always been obsessed with reading and not so obsessed with returning the books when they are due.

I’ll often read a book 2-3x before I return it and when I bring the books back, I always bring my wallet and pay up.

Because of that, there are SO many books I could recommend to you.

I picked FOUR books that I think are wonderful if you’re looking for a new gig, an odd job, or to start your own business.

  1. Made to Stick

    A powerful guide to learning what makes good ideas stick, explode, and go viral. It’s an awesome read to help you generate ideas, marketing plans that will make a splash, and just understanding human psychology.

  2. Skip the Line

    My FAVORITE BOOK of 2021. Why? Every chapter is as good as a class you’d take in bizz school. It gives you honest and practical advice on how to get ahead in this world using skills you have and things you can do right now. READ THIS!

  3. 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

    To make big and bold changes in your life, you need to be tough. I love Amy’s book on mental strength because it helps push past ideas, excuses, and fear.

  4. Reach Out

    Success in life often happens when you have connections. If you ever wanted to learn how to foster those connections, make new ones, or just reach out to people and introduce yourself (without being awkward or weird), give this one a read.
