A SELECTION OF MY FAVOURITE

Business Books

I love books and I love to share which are my favorites

Learnings from my favourite business books 

 Reading business books is a very important part of entrepreneurial success. A leader needs to be curious and interested. Whether people work in business, a startup, an enterprise or even the government to get ahead it is important to read business books.

I read many books, and one of the reasons why have have blog posts about business books is because I want to be able to refer to what I have learned again. In this section it is more than just business book review. I talk about how and why they impacted my businesses.

Podcasts are becoming increasingly important in how we consume information. It is such a great way to hear from an author and maybe get the condensed version of the book

In this range of blog posts I include business podcasts as well as business books.  I read (and listen) a lot – so the best way to stay connect is to subscribe to my Monday Espresso Newsletter so that you can get a weekly dose of inspiration.
