We are joined in the lab by Nicholas Hutchison, the co-founder of BookThinkers LLC. BookThinkers is an online community and educational technology company that enables readers to achieve more and live better. Nick is also the host of Life-Changing Books podcast.
Nick is a passionate student of the world who is always interested in learning new things and applying them to his personal and professional life. He believes that readers are leaders, and learners are earners. Nick says that if we read more, we are more likely to succeed.
Also, Nick reveals that before he became a book lover, he used all these books to improve his life in every way imaginable, he was an anti book. His first “aha” moment happened when his mentor challenged him to read a book and it was the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki that astounded him and made him discover what he now calls - "Condensing Decades into Days".
In this podcast episode with Nick, we will discover how he finds the time to read and how he easily absorbs all the valuable learnings. Let’s see how Nick can also make it easier for us to do the same.
