Must Read Book Recommendations for Entrepreneurs

Why do I love Reading books / Listening to e-book?
It really simple actually. Think about who writes books:

  1. books are written by those who came before you. They’ve worked entire lifetimes and have decided to share their knowledge via a book.
  2. books are written by researchers. They dive into a particular topic for months to years and share what they’ve learned.
  3. books are written by individuals you admire or follow. You aspire to be like them.

Now, knowing the 3 points above isn’t it a wise decision to pick up a book. It’s your secret “power-up”, to accelerate past your competition.

 

My Book Recommendations:

  1. The Power of Habit (link)

    – great book to understand how habits control people.
    – learn how to improve yourself.
    – learn how to build habits with your customers.

  2. Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products (link)

    – why do people say “just Google it”?
    – why do you check your Facebook first thing in the morning?
    – why do you open your Amazon app to order just about everything?

    – this is the book that changed how entrepreneurs and investors look at new ideas

  5. How to Talk to Anyone: 92 little tricks (link)

    – networking and socializing is key to meeting your next co-founder, potential customers, and investors. However, many founders are too shy and don’t know how to begin a conversation. This book covers that.

 

BTW, if time is an issue, try using Audible. You can listen to the books I recommended while driving or at the gym (or maybe while you are sleeping).
