A great reading strategy when your time is limited

During quarantine, I thought I would have more time on my hands to read some marketing books I have been neglecting, but between keeping my kids' school work going, housework, and still working full time, I feel like I have less time now than I did before. What to do? 

I decided to buy the same books on Audible that I have in hardback! Hear me out.

With everything there is to do in a day, I can't find the time to just sit and read, but I can't always listen to content while I am doing non-critical thinking activities. Audiobooks were a great solution, but they don't do as well when they are referencing graphics on a printed page especially in business books. 

Having both is FANTASTIC!!! It is like taking a seminar or college course. I am an auditory learner, but having the visuals to compliment the reading took my reading experience to a new level. 

Another great option is to have the audio book and the eBook. With the eBook, you have the additional benefit of web-linked content many authors will include. 

I hope this small tip will help you accelerate your professional development. Enjoy!!!
