5 Books I Recommend to Our Team Here at Pro Tapes®

I’m a strong believer that life is a journey of continuous evolution and growth. In order to avoid stagnation and the boredom that comes with it, I’m always looking for new experiences, new adventures and new lessons to learn. Travel is great but time consuming and expensive. Training seminars are another great way to pick up new skills but they’re not always convenient, especially with a hectic schedule to maintain. Therefore, I find reading (or listening to books) to be one of the best ways to pick up some new ideas, or hone your existing skills. Books are an inexpensive and convenient way to help you improve, grow and cope with the challenges that both life and business throw at you. Here are the five books that I recommend to our team here at Pro Tapes® and the lessons they provide. Continue reading

Throughout your personal and professional life you’ll be confronted with a number of issues or obstacles that will challenge you and if you’re not careful, they’ll consume you to the point where you no longer feel you can function without them invading your every thought. Far too often we allow the everyday obstacles that life puts in our way to become larger and more daunting then they actually are. They steal sleep away from us at night, they rob us of our personal time with family & friends, and the take away our productivity at work. One of the more effective tools for limiting the negative impact that everyday issues can present is being able to master distinctions, the subtle yet important differences that often get blurred or overlooked when confronted by difficult or uncomfortable situations.
