There are many ways to learn to start an online business. You can watch youtube videos of successful online entrepreneurs who were there once and now are giving free tips to help you out. Others listen to podcasts and audiobooks, while some of us read books and blog posts.
The not so resourceful people will try setting up an online business with their gut feeling and instincts and pray for the best. Good news is, I have 3 books that I personally have read and highly recommend them to you. These books does not give you the answer. In fact, any product which can guarantee you 100% success, it is probably too good to be true.
These books gives you an insight to the minds of successful entrepreneurs, their perspectives in looking at things. These books also help tremendously in mindset conditioning.
In no order, these are the 3 books you must read if you want to have an edge an succeed in business:
The 4-Hour Workweek is truly inspirational and eye opening. This book will open your mind to look at the world at a whole new perspective. I know it sounds exaggerating but trust me, after reading this book, you will be a changed person. Tim wrote this book in a very light hearted way so the book is pretty easy and enjoyable to read. At the same time, it really challenges your thought process on how things are supposed to be done.
I looked so hard for the hardcopy version of this book and finally found it on the shelves of a neighborhood library. Read it twice and am going to read it the 3rd time!
I stumbled upon Pat Flynn from the Smart Passive Income Blog while I was commuting to work one day (I was searching about passive income building). Since the first podcast I heard, I instantly became a fan. I replaced music with his podcasts because they are so content-rich and really amazing. If you don’t know Pat, please visit the Smart Passive Income Blog and you will receive a ton of great quality resources there.
Let Go lets you in to the minds of Pat during his journey to where he is today. Truly inspirational. Pat started off with a niche site for architects and now, he is an internet guru people look up to.
Awaken the Giant is not about online business but it has got everything to do with the person behind the business, which is none other than you! In this book, Anthony talks about how our mindset and perspective can totally change how we get things done. Also, this book is a very powerful book which you can come back to over and over again whenever you need that motivation, the push to bring you to the next level.
So those are the 3 books I highly recommend you to go have a read. If you want to purchase them, you can buy the digital copy from the links I’ve attached on the titles (green in color). Also, if you want to start an online business but don’t know where to begin, check out the essentials you need for starting an online business here.
