Business Success Books: My Top 6 for entrepreneurs


Business success books are a must on my bookshelf.

The entrepreneur’s journey can be a lonely one. At least, for me, it is.
So, I read every morning to start my day on the right foot #AtomicHabits

I’ve found that the best way to find motivation is to read from the best. It’s funny because each one of these books has played a pivotal role in key moments of my entrepreneurial journey. In fact, each one of these business success book covers is like a time capsule that brings back some memories!

When I read, it takes really long for me to go through these kinds of books. I take my time to read, take notes, underline, and re-read as much as my brain needs. To me, reading business success books are less about entertainment and more about deep learning and gaining insights.
