This book epitomizes the "10,000 hour rule" — something I reference often in my coaching. The principle is that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become world-class in any field.

Success in real estate is about more than transactions. Our industry is one of service — hospitality concepts play a big role in any successful real estate business.
THE SLIGHT EDGE
By Jeff Olson
This is one of my favorite reads about the power of stacking incremental habits that turn into massive success. How do you eat an elephant? The answer is: one bite at a time.
THE BOYS IN THE BOAT
By Daniel James Brown
Truly an unforgettable portrait of an era, this book is about so much more than an unlikely Olympic crew team. The Boys in the Boat should be required reading for anyone in need of a little inspiration.
By Phil Knight

Mindset - The New Psychology of Success
By Carol S. Dweck
I can’t quite put my finger on why exactly I adore this read. It could be the psychology degree in me, or the mom, or the business owner or… the list goes on!
Never Split the Difference
By Chris Voss
My favorite read on the art of negotiation. Question: if your partner came to you with dress shoes — a black pair and a brown pair — and asked which they should wear with their outfit, would you split the difference and say "One of each"? Probably not.
