Personal Development Experts

PDEverything You’ve Always Wanted to Know About Personal Development*

*But Didn’t Know You Needed to Ask

Personal Development Toolkit | Year of Personal Development

A lot of my knowledge of personal development was learned in the school of hard knocks. (That, and a lot of reading) I’m confident I can point you to some great experts in these areas of personal development. For each area, I asked myself the question: “If you could only read one book or listen to one expert, which one would it be?” In many areas, there was a clear stand-out, in my opinion. But in some cases, it was impossible to pick only one. For example, there are far too many in the area of Home Helpers to pick only one. I’m certain there are good choices on the list, but I welcome suggestions for additions, especially in the areas of Financial, Recreational, Physical & Spiritual. The experts vary widely in how active they are on the Internet and how much they freely share. Some are sadly no longer with us. Most have at least one book, which you can probably borrow for free from your local library. So there’s no excuse not to learn!
