In this episode of Drew & You, it’s all about the “greats” – authors who have served as mentors to Drew through the years and most especially over the past 11 years as he has retooled his life. The one thing these relationships all have in common? They are rooted in the wisdom of books. Join Drew in a celebration of the rich resources that are available to anyone willing to seek them out.
There are several messages woven through the books that have been most influential for Drew, one of the most prevalent being the power of the unconscious. Coming to awareness takes time and focus and, more than anything, solid guides to help inspire and inform along the way. Drew’s mentors range from the financial to the spiritual, the experiential to the cerebral. The list is long and includes noted thinkers like Wayne Dyer, Carlos Castenada, Richard Dawkins, Stuart Wilde, Tony Robbins and many others. This podcast informs you not only with must-read titles to explore but also Drew’s tips for how to be an active reader (or listener) cementing the messages so they’re available to apply going forward. The knowledge is out there for anyone willing to tap into the resources. All you need to do is have a willingness to embrace, adopt and apply what you learn.
Authors have acted as mentors throughout Drew’s life.
Reading with intention has shaped not only Drew’s growth but also his ability to share important insights with others navigating on similar journeys.
