Day #10 — How to Become a Better Leader

This is a LIVE case study where I am documenting my journey to becoming a highly paid marketing consultant by blogging everyday for 50 consecutive days. It’s called “50 Days to Freedom: My Journey to 5 Figures in 50 Days“. At the end of the post, you will find links to all the previous days.

Admittedly, I am horrendous at communicating.

Not “order a pizza at McDonald’s” bad, but it’s an area that I could drastically improve.

Gary Vaynerchuk is right, self-awareness is powerful, yo!


A couple weeks ago I went to FB to ask for book recommendations on how I can improve my communication skills.

Someone recommended How to Win Friends & Influence People so I finally read that classic. So much of it seemed like common sense, not too common for me though.

Last week, in a FB group, someone recommended a book called Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, so I bought that one a few days ago, and it’s hard to put down.

Here is a quote from the book…

“If you want to have better relationships, if you want to achieve personal success, or if you want to become a better leader, make connecting your goal.
To do that, become a student of communication, if you aren’t one already.”
