Our Management Resource Shelf is taking a slight turn in the next issue. In the future, we will highlight a book or a podcast that we believe are especially worthy. We will vet the entry throughout, and if it makes the round table of praise, you can figure that it’s worth your effort to check it out. Also, tell us about a book or podcast that has affected you and made a difference in your business. If it gave greater clarity to help you reach your goals, we would love to share it with our HVACR contractors. Send your recommendations to  photo
