There is absolutely no excuse for furthering your education when it comes to what is available at the local thrift store or even library.
In this video I share my thrift store haul from the books I purchased between two Rescue Mission Thrifty Shoppers in the Syracuse, NY area.
In all I ended up with 18 books all priced at either $0.99 or $1.99 thus I paid less than $40 for a huge selection of knowledge in the business, marketing and growth fields as well as financial or wealth...plus a bonus book based on World War II in the Solomon Islands and Guadalcanal.
Many of these books I have learned about through reading other books, especially Russell Brunson's Expert Secrets and Traffic Secrets as well as his original Dot Com Secrets Book. So you can hopefully sense my excitement when I found these awesome books today while thrifting!

In each book there are likely things I can learn from and use to share with my followers on social media or through my own personal subscribers.
This is something that you too can easily do by just getting your first book from a thrift shop, library or garage sale for very low prices or even free.
The key of course is to implement what you learn and also share it with others and take on the leadership role. While you can of course give credit where credit is due based on the book you learned something from (and I would highly recommend this action and not plagiarize or steal the details) others will continue to learn from you and your viewpoint of what you learned and thus YOU become the leader and the one that is a step ahead of them.
Put your own perspective on things and your own experiences that relate to what you learn and you will also start to engage with those who relate most to you and develop your own tribe of followers.
