3 Books Every Entrepreneur Should Read (and why)

As a marketing consultant to business owners from every industry, I observe one thing most frequently.
Too many entrepreneurs are overwhelmed and unprepared for what comes with the territory.

Entrepreneurship is much more than a good idea and a passion. Businesses take work! It’s imperative that you’re knowledgeable in what it takes to manage and run our businesses so that they thrive. The easiest way to gain knowledge and understand what it takes to ensure your business succeeds is to read more.

Relying on yourself can be terrifying. But, if you properly prepare, you can see huge gains from your efforts.

Here are the top 3 books our CEO thinks EVERY entrepreneur should read (in her own words):

Think and Grow Rich

(by Napoleon Hill)

Daymond John, co-founder of FUBU, credits this book for changing his life. It’s crazy to think that this book was originally published in 1937 and sold over 70 million copies before Napoleon Hill died in 1970. Even though 80 years has passed since it was released, this is literally my go-to book for self-empowerment because it helps me focus on my goals and understand exactly how to hone in on ways to magnify my individual excellence. My favorite thing about this book is that the author examined the habits of 40 millionaires and gives us an inside look at how we can take their philosophies and succeed in any business. This one is a must-read.


(by Robert Greene)

You’ve probably heard of the “48 Laws of Power” and possibly “The Art of Seduction.” Well this book is by the same incredibly poignant author, Robert Greene. He came back with Mastery in 2013, which quickly became a #1 New York Times-bestseller. I love this book because the author is giving us all the inside secrets on how to master yourself to improve your success. You can be the most business-minded person ever, but if you haven’t mastered certain qualities, you’re still hindering yourself from being the best and most successful YOU.

Outliers: The Story of Success

(by Malcolm Gladwell)

I don’t know about you, but I think about those super-successful millionaires and billionaires, and I want to know….how did you do that? How did you get to that place? How were you able to change your circumstances so much and acquire such a high-level of wealth and influence? This book really just answers one question (in-depth) which is, What Makes High Achievers Different? *Raises hand* I wanna know! Well technically, I already know, but so should you. This is another must-read.

Now, for those that are more on the reserved or introverted side, but are still interested in entrepreneurship, check out this little gem:
