Karen McMillan X YINpreneur

Recommended books for conscious leaders I love to read and learn.  You can call me a life-long learner.  I like books in print and on my iPod.  I am usually reading and listening to two books in any given time period - one for personal development and the other for pure entertainment.  On rare occasions one book will serve for both.

Here is a short list of some of my favorite reads for creating conscious leaders.  They are books I have read that changed the way I live and conduct my business.  Books that set me more solidly on the path of leadership Being and doing.  Books that intrigue my mind and inspire my heart.  Engaging me and moving me to positive practice.
