Knowledge is Power - Books, Podcasts & Audible!

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

My Nan always said you never stop learning and undoubtedly reading books will help grow your knowledge.

Whilst I have always read, it hasn't always been consistent and contained more fictitious books. However, reading has become a main stay in my life now as a hobby but also as a means to advance my personal development.

I consume content via a variety of means from the good old fashioned hard and paperback books to listening via Audible and Podcasts. Check out my blog on the top ten Podcasts I'm currently listening to.

I have also launched my own podcast The Planted Mindset Podcast to share my journey (being plant-based), provide you with tips, knowledge and more about the mindset, fitness and nutrition. Plus bringing on guests to also share their own personal journey and story.

So here's my reading list that I will continually update. As I aim to absorb information from at least two books a month, one via Audible and one conventional book.
