Here's an astounding fact - Readers make more money - a lot more! (Even in tough economic times.) According to a number of recent studies*, business people who read at least seven business books a year earn over 2.3 times more than those who read only one book per year.
One reason is they have a constant flow of new ideas and strategies they can use to help their careers, their teams and their companies. And given all the layoffs and other challenges during this recession, isn't doing everything you can to help your team and your company the best way to not only safeguard your career, but to help it grow? Where can you find a stream of new and practical ideas to drive your success? From the world's business experts.
Many of them have written books offering their proven strategies and winning ideas.
The problem ... who has time to do all that reading?
A recent study** found that while 74.9% of all managers understand the correlation between reading and competitive advantage, they simply don't have the time. This is directly impacting their careers — and incomes!
