4 Reading Tips for Busy People

A new way to read.

Busy person, you can find the time to read. Yes, you can keep up with the latest entrepreneurial book when your time is limited. In the year 2020, there is more than one way to read a book. I love reading.  My issue is time. Time is of the essence when you are a working mom, podcaster, teacher . . . you get the point.

Taking a moment out to read is essential for growing your business, brand, what have you.  The question is how can you don’t have any time? It’s easy if you follow my tips.

Audible

My number one tip is to stop reading and start listening to books. Now if you’re thinking about books on tape wake up and walk into the twenty-first century.  Platforms like Audible are like Netflix for books. You pay a monthly fee and you are able to listen to an allotted amount of books per month depending on your subscription.  

Apple Books 

The easiest place for me to buy an audiobook is on my phone. Apple Books is my go-to source for audiobooks.  I would rather buy an audiobook outright so that I can have it as a point of reference.  Apple Books are awesome and just like Audible, you are able to listen anywhere that you can use Bluetooth technology.  Of course, you can purchase print books to read on your phone as well too. 

Summary Books

Summary books do just what you are thinking, summarizing books and getting you right to the point.  Although I haven’t used a summary book since Cliff Notes when I was a high school student, I wish I had them after I read . . . well, get into that some other time.  

Listen

Are you listening to the Teacher Ces Podcast? Make sure you hear episode eight where I give you my review on the latest books.

The Triumphant Return – TeacherCes Podcast

After months of waiting, The TeacherCes Podcast has made its triumphant return. The return has been long-awaited as listeners have been anxiously awaiting the return of the long-running podcast. Although that reads like a press release written from a great publicist, that is not exactly the case.

I decided to throw caution to the wind and release an episode of my pet project. No special guest, just one mic and myself. I am a stickler for sound quality so forgive me for being slightly vexed if the sound is not up to par. I also did it in one take, as I hate to edit. Additionally, editing takes up so much time and usually causes delays in my show being released.

Take a listen and thank you in advance for leaving a comment on iTunes, so my show will be easier to find. If you have any ideas for topics, leave them in the suggestions below . . .

I have been a Pinterest user for at least eight years. The first time I experienced Pinterest, I did not like it. It looked very busy and I did not revisit again for some time later. When I went back to Pinterest I had a better understanding of how it worked. Pinterest uses pins that generate interest that will generate traffic to whatever your pin is selling. It could be anything from recipes to marketing your product.
