Discover the Hidden Magic of Disney

I must say, I really, really enjoyed this book. Even though my daughter is only 7 months old, I am looking forward to the day I get to take her to Disney World. I still remember my magical trip to the "greatest place on earth" when I was 7 years old. This book is loaded with secrets about Disney World. I have not taken this book with me yet to the theme park, and therefore do not know how accurate it would be. If even just a few things are true, then I think that is fantastic. Although you might be able to discover these secrets on the internet, it is much easier and more practical (you can take it with you on your trip) than the internet. I plan to give this book as a Christmas gift to family that really loves going to Disney World. If you would like to learn the hidden secrets of Walt Disney, then this is the book for you.

Go Big!

Go Big: Make Your Shot Count in the Connected World
I was really excited about Cory Cotton's new book "Go Big" based upon his success with the "Dude Perfect" videos seem on You Tube. I went to Texas A&M with these guys, and actually was in a small group at church with the Cory himself. It's crazy to see how far he has come during the past couple of years, and I just wanted to see what he had to say.
I'm a business major, and like to keep things simple if possible, and therefore, I really liked Cory's "5 Key Principles" to "GO BIG:" get excited, own it, blink later, inspire others, give back. He elaborates on each of these points throughout the book.
This is an honest look into an ordinary guys life who found success in something he loved. It's a simple, enjoyable read, and I promise you will laugh multiple times during your read. If you're anything like me, it will be hard to put down once you start reading. This is a great book for someone who is in college or an entrepreneur looking for something to attain in life. This book is truly motivating! It shows us that we all have a God given talent, as different as they may be, that we can use to glorify God.
