The Confront Zone

“If we’re growing, we are always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
John Maxwell 

Recently, I was challenged to subscribe to magazines of which I typically wouldn’t subscribe … that reading about topics, cultures and interests different what is naturally familiar to me would stretch my mind and make me more valuable to my clients, personal growth, family and friends.  And, what makes great advice better??  Frugal options!!!  So, I went to one of my favorite places:


  • is not only a GREAT resource for gifts … but, a frugal pick for expanding your comfort zone and redefining your daily growth.  (So, I logged into my account and began searching for magazines that would interest me, but that were different than I would typically select from the grocery store newsstand.)
  • To see some of my SUMMER READING picks, visit my board on Pinterest.

“A ship in a harbor is safe — but, that is not what a ship is built for.”

So, this summer … not only am I blocking off calendar time to read my way into unfamiliar territory, but I also intend to do the same thing with books.


  • My local library has a great selection of books on CD (although, I had to find a CD player).
  • My public library also has a virtual library where I can check out magazines and audio books!!

“We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are.”
