If I would have known how powerful books were I would have started reading them back in my teens. You see, I have always been the type of person that likes to plan things out financially to make sure we are on the right track. I came across this quote recently and it hit me like a ton of bricks...
If this doesn't give you goose bumps I'm not sure what will. I blown away by how much a few pieces of paper with scribbles on it can have such a dramatic impact on a person's life.
This is how I go about it. Whenever I come across a podcast, email, or offer that suggests a book I order it on the spot(It's actually about 80% of the time). I've found that if you don't take action immediately you will forget why you wanted to read the book in the first place and it will never happen. I typically take advantage of free plus shipping book offers as they are between $8-20 and that is less than buying them off amazon directly...
These books won't get you to your desired outcome if you don't have the right mindset. This is the first and most important thing to get on track in order to be successful. Below is a list of the books I feel are the most impactful and will fast track your mindset and money to where they need to be.
Where do I start...
You can get most of these books on Audible which makes it a lot easier to consume them on the go. The link for the 14 day free trial is here.
The book that got me into the whole game of business and money is:
This is one of the classics that gets mentioned again and again and again. So basic but so powerful.
From there we move on to mindset. This is one of those books that can be read over and over and it always applies.
Once the mentality/mindset is established you can dive into some of my favorites.
The wisdom in this book will help you far beyond money/business. LOVE this one. I know the title doesn't sound as sexy as most book titles. Don't let that fool you. Seriously.
This is an amazing book that will help you: Buy a deal, sell a deal, negotiate a raise, get your loved ones back from kidnappers... Yes you read that right. He is a master negotiator. Chris Voss is the real deal.
Easy read as it kept me really engaged.
You will have multiple braingasms (if that is even a word) when you dive into this one. Ninja hacks and techniques you NEED in order to crush it in sales.
Russell Brunson is an absolute beast when it comes to all things sales/follow-up and marketing in general. He has built a massive Saas business that brings in 100+ million dollars per year. This is not his first picnic. I suggest you grab a free copy of his book below.
This book will change your view on customer acquisition and follow-up.
