Since I often reference a book I’m reading in my content I’m often asked about my reading habits.
I’ve been an avid reader and book collector for years and since beginning my entrepreneurial journey in 2010 I’ve added my collection because I believe that leaders are readers…
Below is a list of books that have helped me along my small business journey, or are on my list to purchase. The categories may not directly coincide with the original intent of the book, but the major takeaways for me relate to these areas. All contain direct links so you can purchase/download and start reading.
I also use a book summary service to listen to summaries of some of the best business books. When you use my link you can try it free for two weeks.
Check back often, this list will be updated a LOT!
