9 Business Books That Will Change The Way You Do Business

ID-10063353Books are constantly changing. I believe in constantly educating myself and I strongly believe that great leaders should advocate continual education and have spoken about this in the past.

Below are my top choices for must-read business books, in no particular order. They are all great books that you can pick up quickly and get something out of fast. Pick them up for a weekend read and learn something about running a business, investing or becoming a better person to move you forward in life.

1. The E-Myth Revisited

This book is the basis for a lot of the systems that I advise on and use personally in my business. The E-Myth is one of the cornerstones of my philosophy in business and a true classic in every sense of the term. If there was one book I would recommend above all others, this is the one.

2. Think & Grow Rich

What can I say? Andrew Carnegie’s 1937 book remains a classic amongst entrepreneurs all over the world. Some might say it is the book that inspired the inspirational book movement that followed.

It’s somewhat of a tough read due to the fact it’s almost 80 years old and written in a completely different era but the nuggets of wisdom are undeniable (and plentiful). Think-and-grow-rich-COVER

3. Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes

    Nice list of business books. I’m definitely going to check these out!

    To answer your question about other books, I have to drop the classic, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. It’s my favorite book and has opened me up to a bright world of how to properly interact with people.

    I am glad I found this website and It’s cool that you are from the Okanagan as well.
