18 Books to Keep You Focused in 2018

New year, new levels!

New year, new goals!

To help us reach the goals that I’m sure most of us set at the end of 2017, we need the right tools and resources to push us forward. Books are one of the most affordable mentors we can find out there and in 2018, where the stakes are higher (for me at least), we need all the mentorship and guidance we can get as we put in the WORK.

Here are 18 books that will keep you focused in 2018!
