I’ve been reading a lot of books lately:
Books on marketing, business, psychology and anything else that can help me become a better person and a better freelance writer.
I recently had the opportunity to read Connecting Peace, Purpose & Prosperity A Survival Guide & Memoir by Rob Severson
It’s Rob Severson’s memoir, written for and addressed to his children.
What made the book particularly interesting to me was the fact that Rob is 65 and, being 18, I knew I could learn a lot from him.
Also, the concept of writing a book to one’s children and grandchildren is something that interests me, and I couldn’t just resist the fact that everything was based on Rob’s life history.
In other words, it was a story. And I love stories.
I gained a lot from reading the book and here are the 3 most important lessons I learned from Rob about being a more successful freelance writer and, most importantly, a more successful person.
