As an entrepreneur, you do not learn only from books about entrepreneurship, but also from books that can make you mentally stronger, to be able to survive all the challenges entrepreneurship throws at you.
I often look for the best books to read/listen to that can really help me develop personally and professionally.
I want to get the maximum amount of knowledge for the time I invest, so I look for recommendations.
In the last year, I’ve been following The CEO Library and I got good recommendations, so I am recommending it now.
I find many “success” books to be boring or that do not apply to me. So always look for books that are written by someone that had the same challenges as you. Example:
If you are bootstrapping and want to build a lifestyle business, you will learn more from the people that had started in the same way, than the ones that raised VC investments.
I must say that I mostly read articles, than books, and I scan them, instead of reading them completely.
I get my weekly dose of inspiration from Indie Hackers, from interviews on entrepreneurs that bootstrap.
How do you choose what to read next?
