5 Must-Read Business Books

The self-employment bug is in the air… and it’s highly contagious.

How do we know?

Exhibit 1:

The explosive growth of coworking spaces. These airy, light-filled, lease-free flexible office arrangements are popping up in droves and teeming with entrepreneurs who gather to collaborate and innovate.

Exhibit 2:

A recent Forbes article suggests a record number of Americans scratched the entrepreneurial itch in 2013. Data released by Babson and Baruch Colleges suggests that last year 69% of new businesses in the U.S. started at home and that 15 to 20% of our workforce is engaged in running a startup or a more established business.

Exhibit 3:

We can personally attest to a surge in demand from our clients for small business tasks such as website development, logo design, social media scheduling, and PowerPoint creation.

Once we became a trusted resource, clients wanted a one-stop-shop. In addition to handing off those pesky time-consuming tasks that we happen to love (like negotiating with your phone carrier on overage charges, or seeing if “unbundling” your cable is even an option) clients wanted us to sort through their inbox and file them accordingly (how nice would it be to open up Outlook and see a big fat goose egg-zero-emails!).

We were only too happy to oblige. We hustled back to the drawing board, built up the team we needed to sufficiently add to our repertoire, and launched our Premium Service offerings.

Now, we’re proud to be a go-to resource for affordable outsourced business services.

As we send each of you off with a newly launched website or punched up logo, we’re silently applauding you. We’re rooting for you. We want to see you succeed. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of five actionable business books that’ll provide you (or the newly minted entrepreneur that you love) with the advice, insight, and tips they need to persevere.

Afterall, coming up with the idea is the easy part, where entrepreneurs often fall short, is in the execution. You’re the glue that holds it all together. You’re going to need to become a master delegator, persuader, communicator, team builder, and goal setter. Our top 5 picks address each of these issues.

4 Reasons to Become Money Minded

Being money minded is the key to creating wealth and abundance, yet it can be overlooked when a person is trying to increase their wealth and achieve more in their lives. In fact the thought of being monetarily minded makes a lot of people feel repulsed, they associate this with being greedy and single minded – two experiences which are not seen as attractive in society. However being prosperous minded is not about greedy, it is about having the right kind of mindset to make and attract money and here are 4 reasons to change your mindset to attract wealth:

1. Individuals with wealthy mindsets will seize opportunities that come their way – this is something that people with limited money beliefs will not do for fear of failing at a task or venture.

2. Prosperous minded individuals learn to live their lives free from the control of money. This is not the same as living without money, it just means that they do not fixate on how much money they have or do not have all day long.

3. Wealth minded individuals recognize limiting beliefs about money and block them out of their minds. Doing this will enable them to create a more positive outlook about money which in turn will help an individual to be more wealth minded.

4. Financially minded individuals are not ashamed of being this way because they know that this kind of attitude is what enables them to succeed and move forward in life and achieve more.

These are just 4 of the reasons to become money minded and there are so many more that you can learn about. …
