Running your own business is an amazing venture. You get to live your life on your terms and be your own boss, but it’s not an easy venture. It can get very stressful and sometimes you may have moments where you want to quit and ask yourself is it all worth it, but then you remember why you started your own business in the first place.
One of the best ways to keep yourself motivated and ahead of the game is to read inspirational books that open your mind up to new ideas and possibilities for your business. There’s no better feeling than getting stuck into a book that you can’t seem to put down no matter how hard you try.
That’s why I have compiled a list of 5 inspirational books that I think should have a place in every business owner and entrepreneurs personal library, as each of them has had a profound effect on me and my business.
