Three business books I listened to this summer and I recommend you do too!

I’m a massive fan of business books and podcasts. During the first lockdown I listened to global bestseller Building a Storybrand by Donald Miller while painting the house. The Storybrand methodology is now a major part of our Digital Marketing Academy - helping business owners clarify their message so customers hear it.
