Love him or hate him – you can’t help but be interested in what good old Trumpy is up too.
Whilst I would not want him running MY country – there are still plenty of Trump business lessons and tips we can all benefit from.
I heard this Trump story recently and though it was instructive to all business owners.
The story (from a well respected and trusted source by the way) has the Don in the green room backstage at a major business conference before taking the stage as a featured speaker.
This was before he became President and was then making excellent money on the speaking circuit.
In the green room was a fellow speaker (the source) who engaged in some general chit chat with Trump.
During this conversation Trump asked the source:
“So what THREE books are you reading now“.
Now the question is highly loaded – and very informative as to the mindset of many successful business leaders.
Firstly – successful people are always learning and researching – so one book is not enough for them at any one time.
Secondly – the source believes the question was a very subtle way (as subtle as Trumpy can be) to determine if Trump should spend any more of his time talking to the source. Believing that if a person is not reading from multiple sources – then they have limited value to him as a connection or colleague.
So my question to you is the same as Trumps.
What 3 books are you reading at the moment?
Take this on board and benefit from this business lesson.
OK – at least always be reading one.
For your information – I have just finished “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon” by Brad Stone.
I am in the middle of “How to Sell Without Selling: Step-By-Step Marketing Formula to Attract Ready-to-Buy Clients…Create Passive Income and Make More Money While Making a Difference” by Terry Dean.
I am also currently reading “Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less” by Greg McKeown.
All great reads by the way.
I hope this Trumpism sparks your reading desire.
