Philosopher's Notes

It's Thoughtful Thursday and Velvet Cartel is thinking about you, our clients and fellow entrepreneurs. As a business owner, you're a busy person. As a busy person, you want to take in information as quickly and effectively as possible. Velvet Cartel suggests picking up a copy "Philosopher's Notes on Optimal Living, Creating an Authentically Awesome Life and Other Such Goodness", by Brian Johnson. This collection of summaries includes highlights of 100 of the most important personal growth books.

Brian Johnson has written a wonderful book on optimal living that is very easy to read and has invaluable suggestions on how to live authentic, successful, loving, and happy lives. There is great wisdom in this book to help enrich anyone’s life no matter what their age. I wish this book was available 40 years ago when I was just starting out on my own life journey. I whole heartedly recommend it.

-John Mackey, CEO, Whole Foods

Our personal favorites include, "Think and Grow Rich", "As a Man Thinkth", "Letter From a Stoic", "Emotional Intelligence" and "Learned Optimism".
