15 Best Business Books

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Getting to $100k or making 6-figures in your business, is the holy grail of most entrepreneurs. I don’t know how that figure came about, but it is what it is.

If you think about it, $100k annually is a pretty decent salary or excuse me, gross income (since you’re an entrepreneur not an employee).

Here’s the thing, you can make $100k in a year, but not by yourself. And not without instruction, a strategy, and an execution plan. All of which you can find in some of the best business books.

Speaking of plans and strategies, if you’re looking to hire a coach to help you reach that target figure, you could wind up spending or rather investing that $100k.

That’s exactly why I love books!

Although you won’t get the one-on-one coaching you would from working with a coach, you are able to create a framework for success from what you learn.

This is a DIY type of solution, but with the expert advice and information from the actual experts.

The one thing you will need to do after or as you go through the books of your choice, is to take notes and execute your strategy.

I feel your eye-roll, but trust me, THIS process is the way I started out.

I didn’t have the money to invest in coaching, but I did have money to purchase books. I made time to read and learn so I could put my plan and strategy in motion. In this article, I’ve listed 15 of the best books for entrepreneurs.

Here’s your plan of action:

  1. Choose which books interest you and provide the needed info you’re seeking.
  2. Purchase the books, download the Kindle version, or secure an audio version through Audible.
  3. Read the books. Or at least the parts that tell you how to do what you need to do.
  4. Take Action! Nothing happens until you do something. Buying the books and going through them to learn the strategies you need is a waste of time and energy if you’re not going to take action.

That’s it in a nutshell. Use this strategy to get to $100k using the books I’ve listed.

Time to get to work!

40 Days of Prayer for My Busines

Every day for the last five years, I’ve read a prayer for my business, and I know without a doubt, those prayers are what have helped me grow, sustain and build a successful business. Those prayers gave me strength when things got hard, when I struggled in business and when I doubted myself. I knew that praying for my business was a game changer and I wanted to help other entrepreneurs create a disciplined behavior to pray for 40-days and watch God move in your business.The number 40 shows up often in the Bible; specifically, 126 times.

In the New Testament, Jesus was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights (Matthew 4:2). There were 40 days between Jesus’ resurrection and ascension (Acts 1:3). The Bible seems to use 40 to emphasize a time of testing and strengthening, and after the 40 days, there is an emphasis on spiritual truth, a new beginning, transition, change or renewal. It has been said that 40 is the length of time necessary to accomplish major parts of Gods Plan.

This book has 40 prayers for your business. Prayer that helps you push through when things get tough, and they always get tough in business. These prayers help you remember to keep God first in your business and to continue to acknowledge him on your business journey.The prayers in this book are a guide to help build your spiritual muscle in life and business. These prayers will help you weather the storms that come by building a closer and intimate relationship with God. Take one vitamin P (prayer) each day for essential spiritual nutrients.

How this book will help you:

(From reviews)

Absolutely Amazing!!! This book is a must-have for EVERY business-owner. It is not just a book, it is a guide that takes you on a journey into your business. Many know the power of prayer, but sometimes do not understand how to tap into that power.

This is a book I wish I had years ago. Being an entrepreneur is a challenge, but a rewarding challenge. Going through the 40 Days of Prayer for My Business provides a framework to declare blessings over your business, prayers of encouragement when the journey gets tough, and prayers that lead to purposeful and intentional actions.

“Another prayer book…Just what I need”, that was my initial thought when I saw “40 Days of Prayer for my Business.” I just knew it would be another book that told me to pray for my business and poof, pow, like magic, I would have a million bucks. But not this book. This book touched something deep and different. It pulled me in on day one and by day 4 I was waking up every morning, excited to see what the day’s prayer for my business would be.

About Dr. Lougenia J. Rucker

Dr Lougenia J RuckerTransformational change agent, spiritual life coach, speaker and author, Lougenia Trailblazer Rucker, is a world-class leader whose mission is to empower women to break through the blocks that hold them back from living full out and on purpose.

Lougenia went from a life of glitz and glam to living in the shadows, as she took on the responsibility of caring for her mother through a 10-year illness. During that time Lougenia’s life took a complete 360-degree turn. She lost nearly everything – her part-time business, her full-time job, and the love of her husband.

One thing that was left intact was her dignity and a desire to lead other women on a path of inner healing. She rose like a phoenix from the ashes and embarked on a mission to help them overcome their fears, shift their mindsets, and turn their obstacles into opportunities of abundance, prosperity, and peace.

In 2009, she set out on a new spiritual path to give birth to Divine Diamond Ministries, a virtual community, to support the spiritual growth and personal development of women. She’s broadened her vision to serve outside of the ministry as well, and now offers transformational life coaching to women of all walks of life.

Whether it’s starting a business or faith-based ministry, advancing in your career, building your brand, or manifesting more of what really matters, Lougenia empowers them to step up and step out to live a life of fulfilled dreams. She offers group and 1:1 “Trailblazing Transformational” coaching, as well as annual retreats and on-line training and seminars. She is the founder of Power-UP | Prosper-NOW, a conference for entrepreneurs of every level, held annually in Philadelphia, PA.

Words that Change Minds

Have you ever felt like you were talking to a wall? Well, that’s a very accurate description of what’s happening when 2 people are communicating! Everyone has a metaphorical “Communication Wall” around them to protect them from “bad people”. But in all of our walls, we have left some bricks out, to let the “good people” communicate with us.

Words That Change Minds is based on the Language and Behavior Profile, (LAB Profile® for short) – a powerful tool that enables you to understand, predict and influence behavior by de-coding the language people use.

How this book will help you:

(From reviews)

There really are very few books that should be read by almost “everyone,” yet this is one of those books. Especially if you want to not only improve your communication and understanding of influence but also if you want to avoid difficult conversations and ever have to worry about how to motivate someone again.

When you read the book you feel like you’ve been in a training room with someone who knows exactly how to teach the material to you with real-world examples and application of the material that you can test out immediately. Shelle brilliantly lays out the LAB profile in this book so everyone can learn it and apply the strategies in their everyday lives or jobs.

Want to learn how people make decisions and how you can influence this in the future? It’s in the book.

Want to learn how to motivate your staff, your children, your spouse? It’s in the book.

Want to learn how to avoid difficult conversations? It’s in the book.

It demonstrates how we can all reach a better understanding and communication by considering how (and what) we use language.

About Nadine Mullings

Nadine MullingsI am Nadine Mullings and my passion is to help independent business owners to be successful in growing their businesses!

How do I do that you may ask?  Well, I have used my formal education, hands on experience and my passion for entrepreneurship and business ownership to create a marketing company designed to help YOU to market your business SUCCESSFULLY both online and offline!

After graduating from the University of Florida with an undergraduate degree in Business Administration with a Marketing specialization and continuing on to get a Masters in Business Administration with an E-commerce specialization, I took the traditional path of entering corporate America in search of my big dream job with the nice salary, corner office, laptop computer, and company car (that was really my dream right out of college).

After working in corporate America for over 15 years, I realized that was no longer my dream.  My new dream is to help other business owners and entrepreneurs in need of marketing assistance, to become financially FREE and to be FREE to live the type of lifestyle that is not tied to a 9 to 5 job.

I realized that the path to financial freedom is business ownership, but being a business owner is not easy and can be very challenging, overwhelming, and stressful, so I created a company that focuses on taking the stress out of how to SUCCESSFULLY market YOUR business as an independent business owner, entrepreneur, coach or consultant.

ASKTHE “MIND-READING” SYSTEM THAT IS REVOLUTIONIZING ONLINE BUSINESS

Do you know how to find out what people really want to buy?

(Not what you think they want, not what they say they want, but what they really want?)

The secret is asking the right questions – and the right questions are not what you might expect.

Ask is based on the compelling premise that you should NEVER have to guess what your prospects and customers are thinking. The Ask Formula revealed in this book has been used to help build multi-million dollar businesses in 23 different industries, generating over $100 million dollars in sales in the process.

You‘ll discover why the Ask Formula is arguably THE most powerful way to discover EXACTLY what people want to buy and how to give it to them – and in a way that makes people fall in love with you and your company.

How this book will help you:

Before I read this book, I was already telling my clients that they needed to ask their clients and potential clients WHAT problems they needed solving and HOW they needed it done. What Levesque does with ASK is to define HOW you ask your audience and what you do with the information after you receive it.

It’s true that the “devil is in the details,” because getting to the real details and thoughts in your audience’s mind is what will lead them to open their wallets and work with you.

About the Boss Women Authors

Authors of 90-Day Gratitude Journal for Your Business10 Women Entrepreneurs, 10 Different Industries. Each with a different “why” for their business.

Carol J. Dunlop, Rhonda R. Hudgins, Nadine Mullings, Renee Coakley, Tena L. Scallan, Dr. Lougenia J. Rucker, Tracy L. Tate Jones, Dr. Tianna Conte, Pastor Dr. Alfreda B. Bradford, June Cline, CSP

Each grateful for their business and life for different reasons. All agree that this definition of gratitude is true for them: “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”


 

Do you worry that your business will collapse without your constant presence? Are you sacrificing your family, friendships, and freedom to keep your business alive? What if instead your business could run itself, freeing you to do what you love when you want, while it continues to grow and turn a profit?

It’s possible. And it’s easier than you think.

If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you started your business so you could be your own boss, make the money you deserve, and live life on your own terms. In reality, you’re bogged down in the daily grind, constantly putting out fires, answering an endless stream of questions, and continually hunting for cash.

Now, Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First and other small-business bestsellers, offers a straightforward step-by-step path out of this dilemma. In Clockwork, he draws on more than six years of research and real life examples to explain his simple approach to making your business ultra-efficient.

How this book will help you:

(From reviews)

Clockwork gives you all the tools to set up your business to run itself. I have worked with the author since 2016 as we put these processes to work in my business. Mike is my business coach and I received an advance copy of the book. It is spot on. It is actionable and fun in Mike’s typical style. By following his advice and determining my queen bee role, I was able to focus on what only I could do and maximize my impact.

Using the principles in Clockwork allowed me to step away from the business and not worry. You’ve heard of The 4-hour Workweek? Well, this is a manual for the entrepreneur’s 4-Week Vacation.

For nearly 10 years, I ran a business as a solopreneur. Partly, I never wanted employees. Partly, I thought that I was hot stuff and never wanted to turn over that “talent” to others. Then last year, I saw the author Mike Michalowicz deliver a presentation at the QuickBooks Connect conference last year, where he introduced the concept of the “Queen Bee” role. To be honest, it felt familiar, especially when he divulged the 4 D’s — A system of delegating everything in your business (even if that means delegating to yourself). It’s a way of setting up systems that empowers everyone to be their best possible self.

About Mike Michalowicz 

Mike MichalowiczBy his 35th birthday MIKE MICHALOWICZ (pronounced mi-‘kal-o-wits) had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies.

Confident that he had the formula to success, he became a small business angel investor… and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Mike has devoted his life to the research and delivery of innovative, impactful entrepreneurial strategies to you.


 

Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won’t truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.

START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way — and it’s the opposite of what everyone else does.

How this book will help you:

The final book in my list is chock full of interesting stories about companies and people who are household names. The extremely interesting part about these names is what makes them and their companies stand out. Rather WHY they stand out.

Sinek talks about several companies and products that we know more about than we would like to think, but where he makes the story interesting and highly addictive is his breakdown as to WHY these people and organizations are so doggone awesome. Once you start reading, your mind kicks into high gear with questions. Luckily, Sinek has most of the answers so you can duplicate the success and processes he talks about.
