- People Over Profit: Break the System, Live with Purpose, Be More Successful is all about breaking the system, living with purpose and being more successful. If you haven’t read it then I highly recommend you do. Especially if you have any intention to start a business. If you have no idea about the book, then head on over to his site: http://peopleoverprofit.com/. His book teaches about 7 important lessons of business leadership, but these elements are not just important to a successful business, but these elements will help you shine personally too. My taking from this book has been the inspiration to apply these lessons to an aspiration of my own. Let’s just say this book is perfect to be reading in the process of setting up the blueprint and incubation of a new business. Be a dreamer no more, and take action today.
- The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future, as stated in the book: “What if you could achieve your own life of freedom by bypassing everything you thought was a prerequisite? Instead of borrowing money, you just start — right now — without a lot of money. Instead of hiring employees, you begin a project by yourself, based on your specific personal combination of passion and skill. Instead of going to business school (which doesn’t actually train people to operate a small business), you save $60,000 in tuition and learn as you go.” If you have zero desire to start a business or if your goal is to be the founder of a big Internet startup, this book isn’t for you. But if you’re interested in starting a small business doing something you’re passionate about, I highly recommend it. Be a dreamer no more, and take action today.
- Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, if you’re serious about taking yourself, your business, or your product to the next level, you can’t succeed without a platform. This is your chance to take out the guesswork, frustration, and wasted time/money that come with building yours the wrong way. Now is your time. If you’ve ever thought about building a platform, or even if you’ve started and become discouraged, now is the time to restart. In this book, Michael Hyatt show you exactly how to do it. Be a dreamer no more, and take action today.
- The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich, After college, Tim Ferriss took a soul-sucking sales job at a tech firm. He left to start a soul-sucking business of his own. He went from working 40 hours a week for somebody else to working 80 hours a week for himself. He hated it. The pay was good, but the business left him drained. After learning about the Pareto Principle (more commonly known as the 80-20 Principle), Ferriss had a revelation: he streamlined his business, eliminating distractions and automating systems until it was not only more profitable, but also took less of his time. Much less. He took a “mini-retirement”, and then decided to write a book about “lifestyle design”, about creating a life that balances work and play, maximizing the positives of both.
