The Top 10 Best Business Books
Just like you, I’m in a business. I want to learn how to improve my business, grow my business, and become a business success.
That’s why I gathered the most popular business books for entrepreneurs from Entrepreneur, Inc.com, Forbes, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.
Check these out.
10. ”Bold” by Peter Diamandis, Steven Kotler
If you’re ready to learn how to leverage exponential technologies and the latest technologies to accelerate growth like never before, then “Bold” is the book for you.
In this book you will learn about using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while you make a meaningful difference on the world doing work that matters to you.
Money is a means of exchange that you receive from someone and you give to someone else.
We’re going to spend time learning the most efficient, most valuable, and most effective methods of receiving and spending money.
9. ”The 4 Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss
There’s great information here for anyone who is looking to start their own online business. The book covers topics like how to get started, how to be successful, how to market your business, etc. This is a really helpful book for anyone looking to make their dream of working at home a reality.
I just read “4 Hour Work Week” and it is a step-by-step business guide for anyone who wants to deliberately create freedom for themselves by leveraging the power of the internet.
8. ”Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
The classic book by Napoleon Hill teaches us the importance of focusing on the positive aspects of our lives and not the negative. It teaches us how it is easier to think positive thoughts and how it is better not to worry too much about what might happen in the future.
This book is great when learning about different business people and how they were successful. Learn how someone can model their success to be like these business leaders.
7. “Zero to One” by Peter Thiel
Peter Thiel, an American technology entrepreneur and philanthropist, is the co-founder and CEO of Palantir Technologies, a software company.
The book lays out a set of 10 questions every investor should ask about
a startup in order to determine the true risk of investing in them.
Each question corresponds to one of the 10 principles that Thiel lays out in his book Zero to One.
6. “Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek
He says leaders should replace the old carrot-and-stick models of management with more sustainable approaches that are grounded in empathy and designed to boost engagement and a sense of camaraderie that’s missing in the modern workplace. He advocates a leader who is honest, authentic, and vulnerable.
This book would be helpful if you’re the leader or team captain of a team of people who need to work together to take your business to the next level.
5. “Influence” by Robert Cialdini
Successful companies are created by selling quality products, programs, and services to a loyal group of customers.
A seller must learn to understand the needs, wants and motivations of buyers. They must practice, practice, practice to increase their credibility so that buyers will trust the advice they give.
What you will learn here is a series of strategies to help you use the mind to persuade prospects + people into buying using science-backed psychological triggers found within us all.
4. “The E-Myth Revisited” by Michael Gerber
When we start a business, we do it because we want to make a difference. We want to change our industry, and our lives, for the better. We want to make the world a better place. And sometimes, we can get so focused on this lofty goal, we forget what it was that originally sparked the idea in the first place.
A business is not a job. People who want to sell products and services to other people do so as a business. It’s a way of life. I never would have imagined that writing about starting a career in the ’80s would lead me to write about starting a business in the ’90s.
3. “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey
If you’re not familiar with the 7 Habits of highly effective people, chances are you’ve heard about the book. I’m not sure that the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as a business model is a viable business model.
It’s based on habits from the past that have proven themselves in the past that help you in the future.
Each of the habits shown in this book will help to increase your own sense of personal potency and increase your influence in every area of your life.
2. “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi
Are you interested in getting ahead and getting the edge in life — without having to sacrifice your integrity to do it? If yes, then this is your book. If no, then keep reading.
“Never Eat Alone” is a classic book on connecting with others, and most of us have had the experience of being in a situation where we feel like we have to connect, but we don’t.
In any field, but especially in business, it is important to work with people and not against them.
1. “Getting Things Done” by David Allen
The best people in the world never get the results they deserve in a business environment because they can’t write a persuasive letter, or follow through with a proposal, or execute a plan.
If you are not willing + capable to get things done with effectiveness + efficiency, it doesn’t matter how great your ideas are, because it all depends upon consistent action.
Getting things done is a big problem in the modern world because we are bombarded with too many things to do! So, I want you to get down to the process of what it takes to really be productive.
*BONUS* Business Book: “Hooked” by Nir Eyal
If you’re interested in learning how to create products where products become habits, then this book is for you.
In the book “Hooked” by Nir Eyal, he breaks the ingredients of a habit-forming product and uses supporting examples to clarify his points, so that you can really learn how to implement the triggers that popular apps like Google, Facebook, Yelp, and Twitter have used in order to get us “hooked” on their products.
Today I’ll be interviewing the creator of a business that I believe is doing a lot of good for its customers and its community.
Â This podcast is a replay of an interview I did with Nir Eyal, author of “Hooked”, in which we talk about how to make things you like so much that you can’t stop buying them. I show you how I use the principles behind Eyal’s book in two ways: I introduce you to the habit-forming features in the products we sell here at Clickspring (and in every one of our products), and I help you craft your ads to make people want a free sample of your product so they’ll come back again and again.
Which book will you read first?
What’s your favorite book? Tell us about it in the comments below.
The answer to these questions could be simple, “Read them all.” The problem is that they don’t all fit into a day or week at once, so they don’t read them all at once.
There are so many options, and you just don’t have time to spend more than a few minutes on each one!
If you’re looking to take your business to the next level and get ahead of the curve, you need to improve your knowledge of business to help you become successful.
If you want to just read ONE book at a time, then get some of those old, old books that you no longer use and just READ THEM.
The thing is, is that if we spread it out, this way, we have a better chance to actually do all that we wanted to do. Instead of rushing to do everything, then getting overwhelmed, let’s slow down a bit, and do at least a little bit of everything each day.
