Today’s episode of Lactation Business Coaching with Annie and Leah is called “Our Favorite Books for Business, Entrepreneurship & Private Practice”. They each talk about their top three books related to their business and entrepreneurship, and what each one of them has taught them. Some of these titles are well known lactation books, but a few of their picks might just surprise you!

Annie and Leah uncover some of the top books they have been loving related to having a private practice, and other business and entrepreneurial style topics. They talk about which books they go back to time and time again, and which ones have been on their “to-read” list for a while.

They also talk about the best and easiest ways to realistically bring more reading into our everyday lives and how to get the most out of them even when reading might be a challenge for us.

08:34 “I’m going to have this new client that has a more unique situation, it’s like I can just go back through and revise my memory about all these things that we can do for this certain situation.”

12:06 “She is going to make you see what you don’t know about yourself and about the white privilege that you have and about how damaging this culture is for all families but particularly for families from marginalized communities.”

12:34 “It’s so important to open your eyes and keep them open. It’s easy to shy away and not want to really dive deep into it.”

17:17 “Because I feel like life is this combination of opportunity, things that you work for and then things that come to you and being receptive and open.”

24:46 “So organize your books, they sit around too long, read them and then when you’re done, pass them on and get those great messages out into the world.”
