I’m probably one of the biggest readers that are out there. I’m really excited about capturing new information. I’m a member of the Strategic Coach. So, I go to that quarterly and that’s a great way for me to keep on top of running a business and disseminate that information to my fellow business owners.

As an Action Coach, we have access to a lot of information. We have a library that we can go to online. We have a wiki that has all kinds of information on it. I read constantly, I read the newspaper, I read the Wall Street Journal and Crain’s to try to keep on top of everything.

A lot of trade journals for our particular members.
