I finally got reading glasses so can get back to reading to stay up on my industry and to try to get through a book again.
Yes, sad but true: my eyesight is starting to fail. I wasn’t sure why I was struggling getting through a page of text because the changes are so slight but really affecting my ability to see words on a page clearly. But let’s move on…
Here are some books that I really have enjoyed and that have helped me in my business.
These are perfect last minute holiday gift for an entrepreneur you know…or for you! Some are newer books while others have been around for at least a decade and still ring true.
Part inspirational tome, part workbook, there are plenty of exercises that will spark ideas and may even change your way of thinking about business and how your business ideas intersect with your life.
Lynne reminds me a bit of Anita Roddick (and not just because she is British). When I met her, she impressed me as visionary, spunky, and very smart.
In fact, I can’t even recall any of the entrepreneurs profiled in it being female offhand, although one of the co-authors is female (Kate Ludeman).
Regardless, this book really opened my eyes to purpose behind a business. What drives you? What is your higher business purpose?
And it looks at very successful entrepreneurs and reveals the deeper meaning, heart and soul that they infuse into their work.
I really like the author Ginny Wilmerding - she is so smart about women and business issues.
If you aren’t yet an entrepreneur and are looking to make the leap from a cushy, comfy corporate position, this book addresses the issues you might face and how to tackle them head-on.
Empowering and how-to oriented.
Staying true to oneself is key to being able to enjoy the success of your efforts. And finding value beyond the dollar…priceless.
