At the beginning of this year, I set myself a challenge to read 20 books – I know that doesn’t seem a lot but with uni, work and social life, it’s sometimes difficult to find the extra time – before the end of 2018. I also did this last year and ended up failing miserably due to events in my personal life, but this year I am more determined than ever to meet this goal.
Every month, I create a reading list of books I wish to complete within that month, and below are the books I have chosen for March – if anyone has read, or is currently reading any of these books, let me know in the comments and I would love to discuss your thoughts and opinions on them.

I have recently finished reading (or listening to) She Means Business: Turn Your Ideas into Reality and Become a Wildly Successful Entrepreneur by Carrie Green. This blog wasn’t intended to be a reviewing blog, however I simply had to share my experience with this great book.
Recently, I have wanted to incorporate more routine and organisation into my day, to keep a clear mind and so I don’t find myself procrastinating different tasks. I started watching YouTube videos of female entrepreneurs; ‘Habits of a #Girlboss‘, ‘Morning Routine #Girlboss‘ and so on. Each one gave me tips and tricks on how to keep myself organised and how to be successful in the career I want to pursue. As I want a career in the creative industry – directing, producing and writing films/tv – not everything said was suitable for me but I found a way to incorporate the ideas into my chosen career path. One day, I’m hoping to set up a production company and that will involve a lot of business techniques in order for it to be as successful as I want it be. Anyway, back to the book. Through the YouTube videos, I found that nearly all of the youtuber’s I had been watching had read She Means Business and all loved it. I never usually am one to follow the crowd with things like books, films, music, etc. but this was a time I did, and I’m quite happy that I did. I downloaded the book from Audible – a site/app I highly recommend (I’ll talk about Audible in a more detailed post later) – and started reading – listening to – the book. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I started listening as I had never heard of Carrie Green prior to youtubers recommending her book. I didn’t read the synopsis, I simply went in with an open mind and spend an entire Sunday listening to Carrie Green express her ideas, stories and experiences within the business world – I loved it!
