Over the past 30 years I’ve read more business books than I can even remember. Some memorable and some not so much. Here I share with you my absolute favorite business books which had a real impact on me, and I’m sure you’ll love.
While there are many books that deserve to be on this list, I’ve tried to give you a variety of styles and themes to help you with your business.
I’ll be adding to this list as I go through my library so check back every so often if you’re looking for something new to read to help you with your business.
The Go Giver
One of the most powerful business and sales books I have ever read. Do not be fooled by it’s small size, this book should be number one on the reading list of anyone who has anything to sell. The Go Giver is written in parable form to show the power of giving and creating relationships.
Go-Givers Sell More
The companion book to The Go Giver, this book goes through the parable of the Go Giver in real life terms of creating sales through relationship building and giving value. This is the book for the soulful seller, those who are turned off by pushy sales tactics. A must read for anyone who has anything to sell.
The E-Myth Revisited
I read this book back in 1999, 7 years before I started my first business! It’s still a winner. The E-Myth Revisited why some businesses succeed while others fail. It’s not about luck, brains, or perseverance, but by taking a different approach. This book debunks the myths and helps you avoid the common pitfalls of being your own boss.
Toilet Paper Entrepreneur
The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur is one book I would absolutely recommend to anyone in the early stages of their business, or even an established business that needs to get back on track. No money and no resources? No problem. Mike Michalowicz says it like it is, and tells you exactly what you need to do to grow a successful business. The fact that Mike’s writing style is hugely entertaining is an awesome bonus. You won’t regret reading this, or any other of Mike Michalowicz’s books.
The Big Leap
This book is mind blowing. Not a business book in the traditional sense, in fact it’s more a ‘self help’ book for life. But if you’ve ever experienced the frustration of your business doing wonderfully, only to have obstacles come your way just as you’re about to really level up, then this book is definitely for you. A must read to help you break through barriers and ramp your business up at every level.
