Making Money by Reading

9RCIt’s said that people who read for fun and read to improve their skills make 5 times more than people that are not reading on their own.

However, I hear all the time people say, “I read over an hour a day, but I’m not rich!”

The reason that’s the case is because there’s two types of reading that you will do on your own:

  1. Read for fun, which will help you relax.
  2. Read to improve, which will expand your imagination and create unique ideas.

You can read 10 hours a day, but that won’t make you wealthy. It all depends on the purpose of your reading which will then earn you more money.

Example schedule of improving and becoming wealthy:

HINT: Doing 9 minutes of each will drastically improve your skills and can be done throughout the day, totaling less than an hour!!!

~ Read fiction in short bursts. TIP: Read all kinds of different genres, along with books for all ages.

~ Read business books in short bursts. (Marketing, Networking, Sales, etc…) TIP: Keep a notepad with you to write down ideas.

~ Read inspirational books in short bursts.

~ Read biographies in short bursts. TIP: Especially books on business people that made it big.

~ Listen to audio CD’s in the car in short bursts. (Fiction, business books, inspirational.)

~ Watch short burst videos. TIP: Download the “TED” app.

You are doing this to improve your talents, improve your life, and gain unique ideas that will benefit others. Whether you own a business, write books, or you’re an actor, this is how successful people throughout history have made it to the top.

Why read in short bursts?

~ To give your imagination a chance to catch up and create unique ideas to improve.

~ It helps make more difficult reading easier.

~ It’s a 9 minute stress reliever throughout the day.
