Last week I stayed more than 2 hours tied in the traffic while I was going to work, when made me think about this lost time and I desire to find a way to make this moment productive. Reading is not possible because I am always driving. But reading a news about the release of the first Bel Pesce’s audiobook, I had an insight: ‘Why I do not listen audiobooks in the car when I am in the traffic?’. At the same moment I downloaded and put in a pen drive to listen in the car and at the next morning I started a new routine.
The “Menina do Vale – Volume I” audiobook (without a English version, but the free translate could be something like “The Girl of Silicon Valley”) has about one hour and in two days I listened all the book. I am very excited with this productive routine and just have several other audiobooks in my wish list. While I am reading my “conventional” books at my e-reader, of course.
Bel Pesce is an entrepreneur and founder of FazINOVA, a school of entrepreneurism. Her book “A Menina do Vale” was available for free download in 2012 and reached one million downloads three months after. She graduated in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and during the college worked at Microsoft, Google e Deutsche Bank and, after college, she moved to Silicon Valley. There she led teams at the American company Ooyala and founded the startup Lemon Wallet and also wrote her first book. After 7 years in the United States, in 2013 she came back to Brazil and founded the FazINOVA. Additionally to Bel’s history, the book brought some insights about entrepreneurism, startups and the company’s and founders successful histories.
It is a little and quick reading book and I enjoyed. Despite knowing and reading every day about this stories and about the actors of the success, her text make us think about our behavior and how we treat situations and also how we can do things better and get inspired for our routine.
My next audiobook is already in my pendrive and will be “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” (in Portuguese: “Os segredos da mente milionária”) by T. Harv Eker, as soon as possible I will come back to write about my view for you.
Your comments and suggestions for my next books (or audiobooks) are welcome.
My regards and my desire for you to have a nice weekend.
