Secret to “Reading” 150 Books in 6 Months + The Story of ReadItFor.Me

In today’s podcast, we are talking to Steve Cunningham. Steve is the founder of ReadItFor.me, a company that can change your life, one audio and video book summary at a time.

On top of being a great interview and story, Steve has given all Luminary Business listeners a 14 day window to get a LIFETIME subscription at 83% off the normal rate.

I jumped on this myself and I suggest you grab your own subscription here before this offer ends.

SPECIAL OFFER FOR LUMINARY BUSINESS LISTENERS: Get a lifetime ReadItFor.me membership at 83% off

Readitfor.me is an e-learning service that turns bestselling business and personal development books into 10-15 minute animated videos, audio and text summary. His customers include well-respected entrepreneurs and brands like Zappos and personal development gurus around the world.

What his service allows you to do is make sure that you utilize the “in-between” moments –the time when you’re waiting in line for coffee, or when you’re waiting for the kids to get out of school – now you can get the gist of an entire business or personal development book in those 10-15 minutes.

So what it actually does is unlock a lot of personal development for people, and they get to get a lot more done, generate a lot more ideas and ultimately grow their business

I can’t say enough good things about this service.

Steve is the real deal. He reads a book every single day and I’m really excited to have him on. I had a blast interviewing him, and really liked the part of how he got started with the business, and what he has done to make it a success. We also talk about his favorite books, and how they have impacted him.

As stated above, Steve was kind enough to offer a special offer to the listeners. For a limited time, you can get LIFETIME access to his service for just $250 (down from $1499). That’s a really great deal for the value Steve offers, and I’ve already availed it, and would suggest that you do too.
