In this series, we ask members of the East Coast’s business community to share things they’re loving lately.

This week we asked Moncton’s Derek Martin, Mario LeBlanc and Marcel LeBlanc, the founders of Tuxy:

What Derek is into: 

Derek Martin, CEO and Co-founder.

Elon Musk’s Biography.

I’m loving Elon Musk’s biography, a great story about one of our time’s greatest innovators. I am truly inspired by his ability and comfort in taking huge risk and seeing it all the way through. 

What Marcel is into:

Marcel LeBlanc, co-founder

Right now I’m into hot yoga at Pura Vida Dieppe. I am loving my new yoga practice. It helps keep me grounded while providing a different healthy workout for my mind and body.

I’m also loving listening to podcasts while driving. It’s a great way to gain knowledge from time which used to be mostly wasted. The podcasts I’m listening to right now are “How I Built This with Guy Raz” and “Akimbo: A Podcast from Seth Godin.”

What Mario is into: 

Mario LeBlanc, Co-founder.

The thing that I am loving right now is reading. I recently started booking real time off my schedule for reading. I usually read first thing in the morning and a little just before bed at night. I found that with reading you can really nail down the things you want to focus on and find that book to help you get there.

I typically read mostly first thing in the morning, this lets me focus on that “thing” I want to change or improve without all the distractions of the day-to-day. I am about to finish the book Crushing it! by Gary Vaynerchuk and I am about to read, High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard.
