Whether you are just starting out in business or have been running your empire for a while, it’s always good to get some inspiration from those you admire.
And for me, it is important to understand some of the mindset and ‘soft skills’ required as well as learning within your industry.
With that in mind, here is my list of my MUST READ books that have helped me along the way and that I share with my Web Goddess Academy members…
The Desire Map
First things first. If you’re not clear on how you want your life to FEEL then building a business you adore will be really tricky.
So, this book and program is my go-to first step for any entrepreneur.
Everything is Figureoutable
As a B-School Alumni, I love the way Marie Forleo helps you get clear on what you really want.
From facing your fear and dealing with imposter syndrome, to bouncing back from failure, this book is another must-read from my collection.
Start with Why
If you’ve not heard of Simon Sinek and his now-famous TED Talk, get on over and watch it and then get this book to discover why you need to Start with Why in your own business.
I love this book, but need to buy another copy as I’m pretty sure I lent my copy to someone…
The Fire Starter Sessions
Once you’re clear on how you want to feel, check out Danielle’s Fire Starter Sessions to help you create soulful success on your own terms.
Full of juicy prompts and permission to do things YOUR WAY – I re-read this book often.
Blue Ocean Strategy
W. Chan Kim, Renée Mauborgne
How to win by not competing, this book is full of actionable steps to help you succeed in your business without worrying about what everyone else is doing.
It’s a very dry read so I only digest it in small chunks, but still worthy of being on my shelf of inspirational books.
The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k
With a nod to Marie Kondo’s book of a similar title, this sweary little number is an irreverant guide to “stop spending time you don’t have doing things you don’t want to do with people you don’t like”.
It is the permission you need to do things your way and stop people pleasing. Definitely one of my favourite books for life as well as business.
