Working From Home Life

Top Books for Entrepreneurs: Part 1

This post may contain affiliate links and/or it may have been a partnership. Please view our policy page for more details.

As an entrepreneur who has been working independently off and on since 2006, I know the importance of reading books for entrepreneurs. Reading inspirational books can help you push yourself to the next level on your self made the entrepreneurial journey. Throughout the years, I’ve read my fair share of them. Yet my list has drastically grown by networking with like-minded people. Each year I do decide to create a list of books worth reading.

Life-Changing Book Club Invite

This year I’ve invited my newsletter subscribers for the chance to join a life-changing book club. I’d like to extend the invite to anyone who is interested in picking one to two books a month to read together. Then we will meet up either weekly/monthly via the online communication system and discuss how this book has enhanced our lives in some way. I’d like to choose from this list I’m sharing with you now.

I would like to create an accountability/friendship style group. If I have enough interest, I can divide the people off into small groups if need be. That way we each get our chance to be heard and feel like it’s worth our time and energy.

If you’re interested email me at [email protected] with the subject line Life-Changing Book Club.

Top Books for Entrepreneurs: Part 1

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.

Year of Yes

With three children at home and three hit television shows, it was easy for Shonda to say she was simply too busy. But in truth, she was also afraid. And then, over Thanksgiving dinner, her sister muttered something that was both a wake-up and a call to arms: You never say yes to anything. Shonda knew she had to embrace the challenge: for one year, she would say YES to everything that scared her.

Think and Grow Rich

Think and Grow Rich has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature.” It was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?” The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world’s winners himself.The most famous of all teachers of success spent “a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort” to produce the “Law of Success” philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.

James Clear, one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

Power of Habit

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives. 

The Compound Effect

The Compound Effect is a distillation of the fundamental principles that have guided the most phenomenal achievements in business, relationships, and beyond.

Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be

In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.

The art and science of how to do all this is what this book is about.

Whether you want to get more done, lead others better, develop skill faster, or dramatically increase your sense of joy and confidence, the habits in this book will help you achieve it faster.

Now, in this life-changing book, handcrafted by the author over a rigorous four-year period, you will discover the early-rising habit that has helped so many accomplish epic results while upgrading their happiness, helpfulness and feelings of aliveness.

      Through an enchanting—and often amusing—story about two struggling strangers who meet an eccentric tycoon who becomes their secret mentor, The 5am Club will walk you through:

How great geniuses, business titans and the world’s wisest people start their mornings to produce astonishing achievements

A little-known formula you can use instantly to wake up early feeling inspired, focused and flooded with a fiery drive to get the most out of each day

Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It’s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.

Superfans: The Easy Way to Stand Out, Grow Your Tribe, and Build a Successful Business

You don’t need to change the entire world to build a successful business; you just need to change someone’s world.

People don’t become superfans the moment they find you. They become superfans because of the magical moments you create for them over time.

This book will help you do just that.

Influencer: Building Your Personal Brand in the Age of Social Media

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re ready for bigger campaigns, Hennessy guides you through core influencer principles. From creating content worth double tapping and using hashtags to get discovered, to understanding FTC rules and delivering metrics, she’ll show you how to elevate your profile, embrace your edge, and make money—all while doing what you love.

You are a Badass

Just a note on this one: This is by far my FAVORITE life-changing book of all time so far with the exception of the Bible!

By the end of You Are a Badass®, you’ll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you don’t love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.

Conclusion

There are a ton more books for entrepreneurs that I recommend adding to your list of books to read, but I didn’t want to overwhelm you with them all at once. There will be more recommendations soon, but this will get you started in the right direction.

What books for entrepreneurs do you recommend?
