If you are considering a voyage into entrepreneurship, whether it’s full-time or part-time, it helps to arm yourself with resources that will allow your business to start, grow and maintain integrity. The downturn of the economy has created a bitter-sweet moment for small businesses. Some business owners are closing their doors during these tough times while others are becoming entrepreneurs. Lately, I’m finding that some people are starting out on their own because of job shortages. Folks are finding their niches, discovering their market and getting their feet wet as entrepreneurs!
During my book binge at the local bookstore, I picked up a copy of “The 100 Best Business Books of All Time” by Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten, an excellent resource of business book reviews. This book not only highlights the message of each book but it covers why the information is significant and how it can help you.
The chapters are divided by various segments that affect business – Leadership, You, Sales & Marketing, Big Ideas, Strategy and much more. I chose to focus on Entrepreneurship. This section highlights the following books :
- “The Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki
–Kawasaki provides the “how’ factor for entrepreneurship
- “The E-Myth Revisited” by Michael E. Gerber
–Gerber provides you with the skills to create your livelihood
“The Republic of Tea” by Mel Ziegler
— Ziegler provides a true tale of building a business with partnership, risk and desire
“The Partnership Charter” by David Gage
— Since 94% of “hyper-growth” companies are built by 2 or more people, Gage focuses on partnership and the importance of not just a legal partnership agreement but also a partnership charter, covering problems beyond the law. Time to subside the fears of partnerships formed by entrepeneurs.
“Growing a Business” by Paul Hawken
— Hawken focuses on “why” you should create a business that is sustainable and brings you satisfaction just by considering it as an extension of yourself.
So far, the author’s recommendations are on point. These books have removed the fluff and left nothing but substance – information you will need and can implement into your success strategy. I read the first 3 books before I knew they made it on the list. I have many more to go.
