Top 10 Best Books for Entrepreneurs
Today we’re continuing with our series of top books! I’m probably more excited about this list than any other since I’ve been a serial entrepreneur for the past 18 years and have a major passion for mentoring other entrepreneurs.
I’ve pulled together a great and diverse list for those of you ready to take the leap to entrepreneurship, for those who are already on it, and even those who are “expert” entrepreneurs. I don’t know about you but I’m an eternal learner… There’s always more to learn, and with that in mind, I am excited to share with you the following list of my top 10 books for entrepreneurs.
Before I get into the top 10, there’s one book, in particular, that I agree with every single word written in it. I couldn’t have written it better myself. The Author covers all things entrepreneur and even goes as far as sharing how you too can escape the Rat Race, Fire Your Boss, and Live Life on YOUR Terms. Maybe you’ve heard of it?

1-The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich
The New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body shows readers how to live more and work less, now with more than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.
Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.
This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
• How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
2-The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms
The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms.
As the creator of DanielleLaPorte.com–deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have been read by over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts:
: Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress than the craving for balance itself.
: Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
: Screw your principles (they might be holding you back).
: We have ambition backward. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It’s the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it’s what leads to true fulfillment.
3-The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future
Lead a life of adventure, meaning and purpose—and earn a good living.
“Thoughtful, funny, and compulsively readable, this guide shows how ordinary people can build solid livings, with independence and purpose, on their own terms.”—Gretchen Rubin, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project
Still, in his early thirties, Chris Guillebeau completed a tour of every country on earth and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back.
Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businesses earning $50,000 or more from a modest investment (in many cases, $100 or less), and focused on the 50 most intriguing case studies. In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered aspects of their personal passions that could be monetized and were able to restructure their lives in ways that gave them greater freedom and fulfillment.
4-Never Get a “Real” Job
Young serial entrepreneur Scott Gerber is not the product of a wealthy family or storied entrepreneurial heritage. Nor is he the outcome of a traditional business school education or a corporate executive turned entrepreneur. Rather, he is a hard-working, self-taught 26-year-old hustler, rainmaker, and bootstrapper who has survived and thrived despite never having held the proverbial “real” job.
In Never Get a “Real” Job: How to Dump Your Boss, Build a Business, and Not Go Broke, Gerber challenges the social conventions behind the “real” job and empowers young people to take control of their lives and dump their nine-to-fives—or their quest to attain them.
5-Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom
CASHFLOW Quadrant was written for those who are ready to move beyond job security and enter the world of financial freedom. It’s for those who want to make significant changes in their lives and take control of their financial future.
Robert believes that the reason most people struggle financially is that they’ve been spent years in school but were never been taught about money. Robert’s rich dad taught him that this lack of financial education is why so many people work so hard all their lives for money… instead of learning how to make money work for them.
6-Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies (Good to Great, 2)
“This is not a book about charismatic visionary leaders. It is not about visionary product concepts or visionary products or visionary market insights. Nor is it about just having a corporate vision. This is a book about something far more important, enduring, and substantial. This is a book about visionary companies.” So write Jim Collins and Jerry Porras in this groundbreaking book that shatters myths, provides new insights and gives practical guidance to those who would like to build landmark companies that stand the test of time.
7-The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses
Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.
Eric Ries defines a startup as an organization dedicated to creating something new under conditions of extreme uncertainty. This is just as true for one person in a garage or a group of seasoned professionals in a Fortune 500 boardroom. What they have in common is a mission to penetrate that fog of uncertainty to discover a successful path to a sustainable business.
8-Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School
It’s a business school, the Branson way.
Whether you’re interested in starting your own business, improving your leadership skills, or simply looking for inspiration from one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, Richard Branson has the answers. Like a Virgin brings together some of his best advice, distilling the experiences and insights that have made him one of the world’s most recognized and respected business leaders. In his trademark thoughtful and encouraging voice, Branson shares his knowledge like a close friend. He’ll teach you how to be more innovative, how to lead by listening, how to enjoy your work, and much more.
9-Screw Business As Usual
RICHARD BRANSON, one of the world’s most famous and admired business leaders, argues that it’s time to turn capitalism upside down-to shift our values from an exclusive focus on profit to also caring for people, communities, and the planet
As he writes:
“It’s a vibrant and definite sea change from the way business was always done, when financial profit was a driving force. Today, people aren’t afraid to say, Screw business as usual!-and show they mean it.
“It’s amazing how I keep coming across the same message, from bustling global cities to the townships of South Africa to small villages in India to G8 climate conferences.
“It’s no coincidence that so many people are talking about the same thing. There’s a real buzz in the air. Change is happening.
