The best way to learn how to run your own business is by reading. Here are my favourite five books that have helped me and other entrepreneurs run their own business successfully.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset
The Entrepreneurial Mindset is a great book for anyone who is thinking about starting their own business. It will give you the tools you need to succeed as an entrepreneur, and it will help you understand what it takes to be successful in business.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset covers topics like:
What makes an entrepreneur?
The importance of having a growth mindset when starting your own business (and why this matters).
How to get over any fears or worries that might keep you from moving forward with your idea or start-up plan; how to stay focused on your goals even when times get tough; why taking calculated risks can lead to huge rewards if done properly…and much more!
The Art of the Start 2.0
The Art of the Start 2.0 is a book by Guy Kawasaki, who has been involved in many companies including Apple and Facebook. It’s a great resource for entrepreneurs who are just starting out and need some guidance on how to get their businesses off the ground.
The book covers topics such as building your brand, marketing yourself and even creating a business plan–all things that I could use help with when starting my own company! This is also helpful for other entrepreneurs who want some tips about how to get started with their own ventures too!
The E-Myth Revisited
The E-Myth Revisited is a book about running a business, written by Michael Gerber. The book is divided into three sections: the first section describes how to build your business, the second section explains why you should be in control of your own destiny, and the third section discusses how to apply what you’ve learned from building and controlling your own business.
The most important thing I learned from this book is that it’s not enough just to know what it takes in order for your company or organization to succeed–you also need to know who those people are who will make up that success! You have got to know them personally if at all possible (or at least have good contact information), because without knowing who these people are beforehand then there’s no way for any plan made up now out on paper later down south (or north) along West Street near downtown Manhattan City Center Plaza Boardwalk Park Avenue Avenue 42nd Street 43rd Street 44th 45th 46th 47th 48th 49th 50th 51st 52nd 53rd 54th 55th 56th 57th 58th 59th 60
The Lean Startup
The Lean Startup is a book by Eric Ries that outlines a methodology for developing and running new businesses. It’s based on the concept of iterative product development, which means you test your ideas with customers before committing to them fully.
This book has been heavily influential in the startup world, and many companies have adopted its principles as part of their business model–even those outside of tech or software industries. If you are interested in learning more about lean startups, this is an excellent place to start!
The 4 Hour Work Week
The 4 Hour Work Week is a book about how to reduce the time you work and increase the money you make. The author, Tim Ferriss, shares his experience of growing an online business while living in Thailand. He also provides tips on how to be more effective in your business by eliminating unnecessary tasks and automating others through outsourcing.
The main idea behind The 4 Hour Work Week is that people should focus on what they do best instead of trying to do everything themselves. If you want to grow your company but feel overwhelmed by all of its aspects, this book will help you take back control of it so that it doesn’t run away from underfoot!
These books have helped me run my own business and hope they can help you too.
