Over the next couple weeks, I'll be posting five blogs related to South Bend Beat.
I asked each guest the same five questions and will be posting their answers to each question, one blog at a time. Their answers will be listed in order of appearance. I'll also be adding my answers at the bottom.
The first question I asked each of them was - What books are you currently reading? I received answers from readers and non-readers alike. Hopefully there are a few suggestions for you to add to your Amazon Wish List.
The point of this series is to dive into the habits and rituals of local, successful personalities. Each and every guest on South Bend Beat was just that and they are all playing a role in this South Bend resurgence. It's a very Ferriss-ian project. Enjoy!
