My Top 5 Business Books for Entrepreneurs


If you know me, you know that I always carrying my e-reader with me everywhere, it is always in my purse. I am frequently reading a few pages when I am waiting for an appointment or on a lunch break or when waiting in the car while the other half is in a store. Because I am always reading friends and family are often asking for my recommendations. Here are my top 5 books for entrepreneurs. 

My Reading Rules: 

  1. Read a little bit each day
  2. Read at least one fiction book for every non-fiction
  3. Keep an open mind and read outside your typical areas of interest
