Calling all bibliophiles - it's time to sit back, relax and READ! Check out some of our staff's top book recommendations in honor of National Book Lovers Day.
Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins
Abby Daugherty, Vice President
"Through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, David Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. This book is intense, but it’s REAL! It is all about realizing when you are failing, owning up to it, and how to change it. It is amazing!"
Meagan Zukowski, Associate Underwriter
"Fran Hauser deconstructs the negative perception of 'niceness' that many women struggle with in the business world. She proves that women don’t have to sacrifice their values or hide their authentic personalities to be successful. Sharing a wealth of personal anecdotes and time-tested strategies, she shows women how to reclaim 'nice' and sidestep regressive stereotypes about what a strong leader looks like."
Tiffany Way, Assistant Vice President
"In this sharp, invigorating read, Fortune 50 consultant Stephen Harvill discovers twenty-one common behaviors of top earners across seven major industries that set them apart. These are the secrets of the world’s best salespeople who rake in at least one million dollars a year. It presents simple solutions for sales and it is an easy read with a lot of insurance and financial institution references."
Ash Thomas, Brokerage Underwriter
"Everything in this book is written with the intent of helping you and your people develop a strategy for translating or communicating your value in a manner that helps you get paid for that value in the marketplace."
Hokkaido Highway Blues: Hitchhiking Japan by Will Ferguson
Shannon Rogan, Graphic & Digital Designer - Corporate Marketing
"It had never been done before. Not in 4,000 years of Japanese recorded history had anyone followed the Cherry Blossom Front from one end of the country to the other. Nor had anyone hitchhiked the length of Japan. But, heady on sakura and sake, Will Ferguson bet he could do both.
The resulting travelogue is one of the funniest and most illuminating books ever written about Japan. And, as Ferguson learns, it illustrates that to travel is better than to arrive."
