I would like start out each post with this note: Hi! I’m Leo and I would like to welcome all new readers to the Business-Trek journey. As a fellow trekker on this path of life I hope our interaction now adds value to your life. I would also like to thank my current readers and followers for your support. I’m still amazed not only by how fast this blog growing but also by how all of you are helping to make it grow – thank you.
I haven’t always been an avid reader or goal setter – in fact a few years back I would have spent more time watching anime then I would reading. However as I started my MBA program, I decided that there needed to be a change – I figured the only way I could understand the ever changing business world from the rise of technology and cryptocurrencies to the venerable titans in steel and oil was to read.
When I told them I’d read a book a day every day for 2018, they laughed
Most of people’s reactions that I’ve gotten when I said I’d read a book a day 2018 was simply, “No you can’t – you don’t seem like the guy that reads books.”
Those same people would make the comment, “you’re just bringing that book around for show.”
Yes, it was painful and heartbreaking and on many days I just wanted to give up – but for some reasons I didn’t. I guess it was either because I learned how to have tougher skin, read faster or it became a habit.
How I came to blog
I started this blog in order to keep myself accountable for my reading challenge, practice my writing abilities and to reinforce the ideas that I had learned from each book that I’ve read.
What I didn’t expect was there to be a following with wonderful supportive bloggers. Over time the negative voices was drowned out by these positive voices – and I thank you!
So, I would like to welcome you to the Business-Trek journey. As a fellow trekker on this path of life I hope our interaction now adds value to your life. I’m still amazed not only by how fast this blog growing but also by how all of you are helping to make it grow – thank you.
With the coming days, I’ll do my best to read and review books in business, investing, and personal development – stay tuned for my musings and if there is something you’d like me to write about please feel free to let me know in the comments or message me in the contacts.
