One of the keys to succeeding as an entrepreneur is maintaining a regular diet of “mind fertilizer”. It was one of the first things my first coach told me when I decided to head down the entrepreneurial route many years ago.
At the time, I thought “yeah sure, whatever” but soon realized that without a constant replenishment of reading what it takes to succeed from those who have been there before, the knocks one takes along the way would soon take their toll.
So today, some recommended reading for every budding entrepreneur; or at least some suggestions.
Each book listed in the following post at under30ceo.com will have an impact on your thinking especially when the doubts creep in that you may not make it.
Most of them are written by people who have struggled and failed but for whatever reason, eventually reached their goals. In some respects, its the type of inspiration most of us need; the proof that it can be done from people who were like us but found a way.
Hope it helps in some way and I’d sure like to hear more suggestions from those of you who have a favorite they would like to share with others.
