Written by Julia

Books have been around for centuries. They can provide useful knowledge and primarily they are free education. If you are thinking of starting a business or already have a business, reading a business book can be very useful as it provides helpful information from entrepreneurs and experts in your field. There are thousands of books you can read to help educate you on your new entrepreneur journey!

1. Rich Dad Poor Dad


I believe one of the best books to start off with is Robert Kiyosaki’s best-seller, “Rich Dad Poor Dad” as it’s simple and teaches you the basics of the mind of an entrepreneur. It gives you insight into the difference between an entrepreneur’s mindset and the importance of financial independence. Instead of a how-to, this book tells more of a story. This is the perfect book to start off with before you move on to more complicated and how-to books.

2. The Lean Startup


This book is many new business owners’ favorite as it talks about a topic that many struggle with- cash flow . “The Lean Startup” by Eric Ries was created to guide you into the many new challenges and changes a new business will bring. Besides just cash flow, the book will teach you how to effectively budget, save money, and handle your business expenses correctly and sufficiently. It’s the perfect book to introduce you to the business world, the financial struggles, and the solutions.

3. Will It Fly?


The title pretty much says it all. Every entrepreneur with a business idea would love to predict if their business will take off or fail? McKnight offers a checklist with 44 factors that help you assess your new business idea. McKnight has his own experience in business, therefore, making the book even more interesting to read. At the end of the book, you should have a clear idea if your business can succeed or not.

4. The Fire Starter Sessions



This book is perfect for motivation. If you’re still debating whether to start your business or not, this book will give you that little nudge and the push you need. Danielle Laporte features 16 startup sessions that will really surprise you and make you want to start your business today. This is a definite must-read to get that fire and action running and into your business.

5. Start From the Ground Up



If you’ve got a business idea but aren’t sure where to start then this book is for you. Kocialski’s book, “Start From the Ground Up” provides helpful information and resources to help you better understand how to start a business. You will learn how to take your product or service and execute it into a proper business model. More so, you will read the information on how to hire suitable employees and how to seek funding.
