Today I’m bringing something new to my blog: A quarterly book review!
This means that at the end of each quarter, I will gather all of the books that I’ve read and give my honest review about them. My quarterly book review will vary between different genres but I’d like to kick off the very first one with some of my favorite business books!
1. We Should All Be Millionaires by Rachel Rodgers
I really enjoyed hearing the perspective from a woman of color about her journey to success. She’s fun and spunky, which made this a fast read. She teaches mindset, motivation, and how to spin your thoughts to make million dollar decisions. Although I did like the ideas behind this book, the thought that “anyone” can become a millionaire is not realistic. If it was that easy, everyone would be doing it! Overall, I would recommend this because she does help you see things in a different perspective to help you reach your goals.
3. Chillpreneur by Denise Duffield-Thomas
The tone of this book is written as if you were talking to your best friend. Denise tells it like it is in a very smart and funny way, which makes it hard to put it down. She shares the concepts that have enabled her to be successful without having to hustle all day everyday. If you believe in working smarter, not harder, this is the book for you!
3. GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso
Although this isn’t a “how to build your business” kind of book, I really liked how Sophia shared the personal struggles she experienced that led her to organically build her brand. She has a very funny, vibrant, won’t-take-anyone’s-BS type of attitude, which made it a fun read. This book is meant to inspire you to overcome your hurdles and build your business on your own terms despite all the noise.
4. You are a Badass by Jen Sincero
This book is written in a sassy tone and will help you get your act together and believe in yourself. Just like most self-help books, it places lots of emphasis on mindset and perspective. The author encourages you to love yourself in order to formulate your goals and go for your dreams. Although her ideas aren’t new, Jen’s edgy and direct personality is what makes her stand out.
(I also recommend her sequel: You Are A Badass at Making Money.)
5. Building a Storybrand by Donald Miller
I’ve mentioned this book a few times on my blog and just had to include it in my first book review! The framework is beneficial to your business in so many ways, whether it’s how you market yourself through your website or how you talk about your business while networking. The author illustrates his concept in a way that’s easy to understand and helps you clarify your message. If I had to pick only one book to read again from this list, this would definitely be my first choice!
And that wraps up my very first book review post!
