In these contemporary times, modern technology and globalization are making the pursuit of entrepreneurial endeavors easier and more advantageous. Despite the accessibility to information and people who could become potential business partners or customers, however, many aspiring entrepreneurs feel that they lack the information necessary to successfully start a business. If this is the case for you, there are a wide variety of inspirational and informative books that can help you gain the confidence and knowledge necessary to have success in all of your entrepreneurial endeavors. Here are 5:
1. The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss
This is definitely a must read for individuals who want to escape the rat race and start generating a five figure income. With this book, Ferriss talks about his own experiences in making his career more profitable and time-efficient. He also shows his readers:
•How to eliminate 50% of the work you do within 48 hours
•How to replace a long-term career with a work world marked by continual “mini-retirements”
•How you can eliminate e-mail and negotiate with clients or bosses
2. The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau
This book is ideal for individuals looking to exit the traditional world of work. In it, Guillebeau shares valuable lessons regarding how to turn activities and enterprises that you love into a viable income. According to Guillebeau, the trick to building wealth lies in identifying your field of “expertise” and discovering ways to get others to pay for it. In arguing that you don’t need a business plan or MBA to realize this goal, Guillebeau says what really matters is having a product or service that others will buy.
3. The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms by Danielle LaPorte
People who loath cookie-cutter by-the-book mentalities will enjoy this liberating book regarding how to create success for yourself. In it, Danielle LaPorte debunks the idea that being well-rounded and setting goals are good principles to follow. Instead, she argues that people should hone the skills that they’re particularly good at. She also states that people should pay more attention to how they feel in life and at work than establishing objectives that have to be accomplished. Perhaps the fresh perspectives she offers is the reason why her writings have been read by more than 1 million people.
4. Buy It, Fix It, Sell It: Profit! by Kevin C. Myers
This #1 bestseller in its category on Amazon and Barnes & Noble is an ideal read for individuals who want to jump into the field of real estate. With this text, Myers shows readers how to develop home-based home rehabilitation businesses, on either a full or part-time basis. As a work that the Wall Street Journal Online deemed one of the Top 10 real estate investment books of all time, this book is a must read.
5. Finding Your Way in a Wild New World: Reclaim Your True Nature to Create the Life You Want by Martha Beck
As a life coach and bestselling author, Martha Beck brings an informative voice to the table with this book. In it, Beck discusses how many people perceive that they have a venerable calling and inner power worth using to impact others. Unfortunately, however, these gifts cannot be appropriated without the right tools. Thus Beck provides her readers with information drawn from modern science and ancient knowledge to help them access their inner power to transform both self and the world.
