I’ve read my fair share of self help books, it has to be said. The problem is, they’re all much of a muchness. There’s nothing that shouts ‘I’m different, read me!’
What Makes Pocket Manager Books Different
Well to start with, I love the size of this fantastic set of self-help books. I keep them on my desk and find the one I need, when I need it. The books themselves are inexpensive but they are packed full of useful no-nonsense tips on how to get ahead in business and stay there! That’s not how they are marketed but that’s definitely a good way to describe them.
Kate’s straight forward approach to personal development is refreshing. There’s no New Age mumbo jumbo here. I want specific advice on how to deal with a variety of situations and moments that occur in business.
I love the fact that I can download them to my Kindle too. I love my Kindle with a passion!
Assertiveness Is Key
I’d say that assertiveness is definitely key when it comes to running your own business. Although I kid myself that I actually am assertive and never let myself get talked into anything I don’t want to do, I’m actually lying to myself. When it comes down to it, who benefits from such a lie. Certainly not me!
Although the books are aimed at businesses and entrepreneurs I believe some of the titles are of benefit on a personal level too. Assert Yourself in particular.
I’m not one for seeking outside help in person, but seeking advice from a cute little book where no-one knows I’m doing it is the perfect solution.
I can highly recommend Pocket manager Books if you’ve read lots of similar stuff but not quite found the right mix of advice and tips that you can actually practise….
