Started this week with some amazing news: The CEO Library was featured in a BBC article about reading habits! Front-page, above the fold and all, for 24 hours. big grin

A few of the things that were mentioned:

– Why I didn’t read books for several years and what changed.
– How that was one of the many factors that led to starting The CEO Library together with Bobby.
– The reading habits of a few successful entrepreneurs we’ve interviewed and how books made a difference in their journey.

My amazing friend Andra Zaharia was also mentioned in the article, she talks about setting expectations and reading goals.

Read it here, apply what you learn, and perhaps share the article with friends and family. big grin

I’ll start with a disclaimer: I’m personally repulsed by online giveaways. I consider them shortcuts for lazy marketers. Yeah, sure, they work, but they can’t be your only strategy on the long term – as I’ve seen it happen with so many brands. Giveaways usually attract people that are irrelevant for your business, so are they really worth the energy? What’s more important: having 100 fans who really trust you and buy your products, or 10,000 fans who hit the like button just so they could win a prize, but don’t care about you and your mission?

Ai ocazia să ne asculți (pe mine și colegii mei: Bobby și Vlad) vorbind despre cărți, business, cine suntem, de ce am lansat The CEO Library, ce vrem de la acest proiect, cum a evoluat în cele (aproape) 3 luni de la start, plus câteva lecții despre cold outreach și greșelile pe care le-am făcut.
