I am a HUGE bookworm. Always have been (thanks to mom and dad for fostering that in me!).
I love to read memoirs, crime novels, books on psychology, emotional and mental health, how things work, and business mindset books.
Despite my love of reading, it can be hard to find the time to sit down with a good book. Between running a business, walking the dogs, doing the laundry, and making sure I have enough firewood chopped for winter…it can be hard to find the time.
However, I’ve come to realize that in order to set myself up for success, my morning routine must include time for reading. Because of this habit, I’ve been able to read more books over the past few years, and today I wanted to share with you my two favorite business mindset books that I recommend to anyone who has a dream or a passion they are pursuing.
Here they are.
Motivational Books for Business Owners
This is one of my favorite books on business mindset that I have ever read. Angela’s research into what makes some entrepreneurs more successful than others is persistence and endurance. Those two traits matter more than innate talent.
This is a great book to read if you’ve been feeling discouraged in your business and need that confidence boost to get you over those hurdles your facing.
If you’re going to read a book on marketing, this is the one it should be. Donald Miller gets right to the heart of how to market your business with insightful questions and decades of experience.
Whether you are the marketing director of a multibillion-dollar company, the owner of a small business, a politician running for office, or the lead singer of a rock band, Building a StoryBrand will forever transform the way you talk about who you are, what you do, and the unique value you bring to your customers.
The Bottom Line

How are you fostering a resilient mindset so that you can show up personally and professionally?
In what ways could you listen more and talk less?
