Spinning Ball Ricardo Ghekiere

Books & Podcast List

Here is a continuously updated list of books and podcasts that I found particularly influential in my personal growth
(and because I kept forgetting which books to recommend to people).

The best investment you can make is the one in yourself.

In growth, things like channels, tactics and even your job will always keep changing. The only thing you will always have is the trust and confidence you have in yourself. Not investing in yourself is like buying a Ferrari, but never taking it to the garage. Fuel yourself today, reap the rewards tomorrow.
