Kasey’s Book Club: The E-Myth Revisited

If there is something I like to do other than lift and watch Lord of the Rings, it’s reading.   English was always my best subject and something that always seemed to come naturally. In other words, I read good.     Whenever I read Facebook statuses or see emails that use, “Its”, instead of “it's”, there is a small part of me that wants to be a jackass and say, “Ummm..do you possess (insert something they do not possess)?”     In the past year and a half, as my personal training business has picked...
