Audio books are my favorite way of consuming self-development information. Often I am too tired or busy to read self development books, but as I am cooking, working out, walking, driving… I can easily find the time to listen to audiobooks!
Although I am more of a visual person than an auditive person, listening and picking up 80% of what they say is still better than not reading a book at all!
I highly recommend starting to use audiobooks as your way of increasing your knowledge and honing your skills. I personally use Audible by Amazon, and you can start using it with a free trial with 2 free books by clicking the link below.

Important: you don't buy new books in the audible smartphone app. You: sign up and buy books on the website, and you put the Audible app itself on your phone so you can download your purchases.
Once the app is downloaded, you log in with your audible/amazon account, but BEWARE: make sure the ‘marketplace‘ on the bottom is the same as the extension of the website you signed up on (.co.uk, .de, .com,…).
If you don’t do this correctly, you will not see books appear on the ‘cloud’. It’s a bit of a mess to get the hang of it in the beginning, but I’m certain you’ll figure it out.
Are you ready to read more, but you don't want to carry around a heavy bag? Although I prefer the feel of real, paper books… Using a Kindle is so much easier. Not only does it weigh almost nothing, you can also get your books ‘on demand'.
Did you find a book on my site you like? Great, once you have a Kindle you can start reading it within 30 seconds!
No matter where you are, even if you're on a remote beach in Curacao: when you use a Kindle you can always buy a new book and start enjoying it instantly!
I will always love paper books… But I'm very happy I get to enjoy more new books because I keep my e-reader on hand and stocked up with new books!
