The average day in the life of a small business owner involves juggling any number of tasks, but it's still important for them up to date on industry news, market trends, and information. Reading quality content is one of the most effective and efficient ways for leaders to continue growing.

The old adage from Harry Truman holds true: "Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers." The most effective leaders of the day are prolific readers who read constantly to learn from others' expertise, expand their knowledge base, and build new skill sets. An avid reader and advocate of the benefits of reading, Bill Gates has shared that, despite the multitude of resources available to him, "reading is still the main way that I both learn new things and test my understanding."

The good news is that the internet offers a treasure cove of information on just about every topic. The challenge for busy business owners and entrepreneurs is sifting through this information and zeroing in on what's most relevant for their industry and team.
