Nick Hutchison joined me on the Blossom Your Awesome Podcast.

I interviewed Nick Hutchinson, an author and podcast host, about the power of reading and applying what you learn from books. Nick is the founder of a seven figure marketing agency called Book Thinkers. He helps unknown authors get their books out to the masses.

He is the author of Rise Of The Reader. The premise of the book is learning to use the knowledge from books applicably.

Nick shares his journey from being a non-reader to becoming an avid reader and the impact it has had on his life. He emphasizes the importance of setting goals and taking action based on what you read. Nick also discusses the traits and attributes of successful people and the value of giving back. He provides book recommendations for personal development and offers advice for those who are struggling and stuck. The conversation concludes with a closing message about the transformative power of reading.
