I am a HUGE believer in the power of personal development! I’ve learned so much more in the past 6 years of owning my own business than I ever did in college and grad school. You don’t need an MBA to succeed in business, but you do need the right mindset, as well as strategy. Both of those things you can learn in the following book suggestions!
If you have the entrepreneurial spirit, you need to read some of these books to prepare you for the challenging (yet crazy rewarding) road ahead!
I start every single morning reading and it really helps me start my day off right!
If you’re new here, be sure to get your free access to my insider vault for entrepreneurs, filled with videos, worksheets, and a lot more to help you crush it online. It’s totally free =)
Alright!! Let’s get to it! I’ve broken up the list into categories, because there are some days I just really want to focus on my mindset, and others I want biz strategy! It’s important to read BOTH kinds!!
