3 Books Every Business Woman Should Read
The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss. Even the over-achievers among us who cannot even begin to comprehend the idea of having a fulfilling career and only working four hours per week can learn something (a lot, actually) from Ferris’ guide. No, it’s not about slacking off. Rather, it’s about the power of outsourcing, the freedom that comes with efficiency and the happiness that follows.
The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle Laporte. Female entrepreprenurs (and wanna be entrepreneurs), listen up: the book is the estrogen-infused business book you’ve been waiting for. Full of inspirational quotes, practical advice and insightful exercises, Danielle will take your business (and soul) to new heights.
Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B. Cialdini. If you know your dream job, but don’t quite know how to go about doing it, this is the book for you. It lays out the psychology of why people say “yes” and how to apply these principles to making sales, driving action and ensuring success. Even if entrepreneurship isn’t in your future, this book is a great resource for everyday decision making.
