My Favorite Business Books of All Time.jpg

My wife and I both love to read. But, 90% of the books I read are business-related, which is not her thing, so we rarely bond over books. I'm hoping, you and I, dear reader, can bond over some AMAZING books.

 

Here is a list of my all-time favorite business books (In no particular order):

7 Habits.jpg

"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey

 

In the first entrepreneurship course I took in College this book was assigned reading. At first, I was a little irritated that I had to read the course textbook and an entire other book (plus this one was not even on entrepreneurship). But, I was so grateful that I read it. The principles for how to be more effective just make sense. I've probably read this 6-7 times.

"How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie

 

When I first got into sales someone recommended this to me. The title seemed manipulative but I decided to give it a shot. The version I read was quite dated, but the varied tools suggested on how to be more likable and personable are invaluable.

The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster.jpg

"The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster" by Darren Hardy

 

An "extremely "down-to-earth" book on the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur. You would be hard-pressed to make it through this book and not have your entrepreneurial confidence grow.

"The E-Myth" by Michael E. Gerber

 

The pioneer book on the idea of working on your business, not in your business. A great starting point for figuring out how to create systems in your business that help you to own a business as opposed to owning a job.

"Maximum Achievement" by Brian Tracy

 

In a previous life, I was a Mortgage Broker. One day I met one of the top Realtors in the city and in our conversation she mentioned that she had this audiobook on repeat in her car. I was not disappointed. While not specifically business-related, there are so many great takeaways for how to be more successful in any area of your life.

More to come :)
