10 Best Books for Entrepreneurs
Today weíre continuing with our series of top books! Iím probably more
excited about this list than any other since Iíve been a serial
entrepreneur for the past 18 years and have a major passion for mentoring
Iíve pulled together a great and diverse list for those of you ready to
take the leap to entrepreneurship, for those who are already on it and
even those who are ďexpertĒ entrepreneurs. I donít know about you but Iím
an eternal learnerÖ Thereís always more to learn, and with that in mind,
I am excited to share with you the following list of my
top 10 books for entrepreneurs.
Before I get into the top 10, thereís one book, in particular, that I
agree with every single word written in it. The Author covers all things entrepreneur and even goes as
far as sharing how you too can Escape the Rat Race, Fire Your Boss and Live
Life on YOUR Terms. Maybe
youíve heard of it?All joking aside, I wrote this book specifically for entrepreneurs wanting
to take it to the next level in the hopes that you could learn from my 15
years of experience and save you several years of stumbling and repeating
the same mistakes.
