Liz’s Recommended Reading List

If you’ve listened to any of the podcast episodes or seen me speak you will know how much I’m a believer in reading for personal development. Books are the path of enlightenment and they are so accessible. This list is a work in progress of books that I have read and highly recommend to any Executive Assistant who strives to show up as indispensable and differentiate themselves from the pack.
