entrepreneur booksTop 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 other entrepreneurs.

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.

MLM Books - The Unemployed MillionaireBefore 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.
