1. The E-Myth Revisted
I was on an airplane when I read this book and my entire mindset shifted while we were in the air. This book made me question how I was running my business and consequently enabled me to make life-changing decisions moving forward.
2. The 4 Hour Workweek
I see this book criticized in some circles, but for me, it was eye-opening. Especially the first half was truly defining as I got serious about managing my time so I could both grow my business and have time for my family.
3. Think and Grow Rich
While on vacation with my in-laws in Mexico, I read this book (after much insistence of fellow successful business owners). I literally walked laps around the pool because I was so excited about the concepts. Don't let the title throw you off. This classic book is a staple for motivated business owners.
4. Rocket Fuel
My husband and I are complete opposites. At first, this caused great friction and misunderstanding as we attempted to grow our company. This book outlined our roles and defined how we can both be great at what we do--in our own way. This book saved our business- and our marriage. If you're working with your spouse or a business partner, I highly recommend it!
5. The Ruthless Management of People and Profits
When I started my business, I was nice. Too nice. It took a lot of reading and mindset correction for me to learn to be nice AND have good boundaries so well-intentioned people didn't unintentionally destroy my business. This book gave me a good start on the right path.
6. The 10X Rule
I tried reading this book while relaxing in the sunshine on my deck, but I got too charged up. I had to go for a power walk and process all my thoughts and ideas! Beware. Reading this book by Grant Cardone will make you want to do big things!
