What are some useful books that may help me to become an Entrepreneur?
I would start my answer with a quote that suits an entrepreneur: “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.” Words of motivation are like fuel to ignite the desire to do something great. The books on entrepreneurship or how to become a successful entrepreneur are no less than a barrel of that fuel.
As an entrepreneur myself and having found success, I always look forward to sharing tips with budding entrepreneurs. Every entrepreneur has a source for motivation, the thing that finally pushed them to get started, and even I am no different and owe my initial success to a book. I would share that later in the answer.
Coming straight to the point, I would suggest five books based on the recommendations of the successful entrepreneurs in my network.
1) “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferriss
2) “The Lean Startup” by Eric Rias
3) “Blink” by Malcolm Gladwell
4) “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek
5) “Dying for a Paycheck” by Jeffrey Pfeffer
To be straightforward, sometimes not just a book, but a random thought is enough to stop you from sleeping through life and make you take that initial leap. Though naming a few would be an injustice to the ones not listed here as I believe every book is special and impactful to the right person, especially when it concerns entrepreneurship, a topic filled with extremely different people.
If, after reading any of the books and taking inspiration from that, you become successful, then even you wouldn’t stop speaking in praise of that. I hope you got what I mean to say now.
The book that happens to be my bundle of inspiration and happiness is one of the oldest, perhaps biggest books on making money online, however you want to do it, and crafting a lifestyle where you make more money for less time spent working. It also covers how to stretch every dollar without living like a penny-pincher, so that you live far better than other people making the same amount of income as you.
Well, before I fill all the answer space in its introduction, it’s the time to unveil that: In the suggestions above, it lies at #1 on the list, at least for me. That’s “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferriss. I hope you like it.
In the end, I wish you lots of success, and I hope that your story becomes an inspiration to many.
