Blog by Sevetri M Wilson

Last month I shared with my social media friends that I had embarked on a journey to read at least one business book per month in 2015. I received over forty emails and direct messages from people asking me to share my list.

Over the past few years I have intentionally incorporated daily habits of highly successful business people from across the world into my own daily routines. We’ve all heard the saying that Reading Is Fundamental, but I’ve learned for business owners it is much more than just that. In fact, reading is an imperative, and at many times, missed opportunity to grow your own skill sets and learn from the lessons of other leaders.

Below you will find my reading list broken down month by month.

I hope you can add one or two to your own repertoire. Be sure to drop me a line on twitter or tag me on IG with what you are reading @sevetriwilson . Also, if you have any other suggestions please share those as well. #SGIREADS2015
