Description

"These are top commercial books he is reviewing...

I have never seen anyone do as good of a job presenting the subject matter within a book. These books apply to life in general, not just business...

He gets all the value out of the books for you and saves you a lot of time and money (don't have to buy the books)."

INVEST IN YOURSELF

I've been building and investing in businesses for over 20 years and if there's one thing I've learned it's this: the most successful entrepreneurs invest heavily in self-development. 

Entrepreneurship comes with many challenges and just as many opportunities to learn from those who came before you. Whether you are planning to start a new business or are already managing one, reading can be a great habit. If you haven’t started it yet, it’s high time to do so. 

GET INTO THE HABIT

When you're looking to expand your knowledge into any field, there are few things as helpful as a good book. Books are a great way to learn new ideas, discover what works and avoid the mistakes of others. 

But, reading takes time, and for entrepreneurs that's precious. So how do you choose which entrepreneurial books to read? Well, let me save you that time by choosing and reviewing the 5 books that have helped me and many other entrepreneurs successfully launch and grow their businesses.

THESE 5 BOOKS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER

Bold claims, but I believe that even if you were to take only one or two of the lessons I share in my reviews and apply them to your business and personal life, you will see positive change. Books can have that effect, and that's why I'm passionate about sharing this knowledge with you.

I review each book and share the key lessons learned. I do the heavy lifting and summarize everything into a short lesson that delivers actionable points you can use for good impact right away.

Who is the target audience?
  • You want to start a business
  • You have already started a business
  • Freelancers looking to scale up their business
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Students interested in entrepreneurship

Hello,

If you're passionate about learning like me, then you'll love this PDF I just uploaded. It's a useful reminder why we entrepreneurs need to invest in our ongoing learning. The entrepreneur who stops learning new skills, techniques and business models soon becomes uncompetitive and loses her edge. Never stop growing!

Some years ago I quit my job in finance and started my own business.

I walked into my boss’s office on Thursday morning with a resignation note. By Friday I was out on my own, with only the weekend to catch my breath and wander what the future would hold.

Why? Because becoming an entrepreneur was something deep rooted in my being. I just had to do it. It felt like my whole life had been working towards this moment.

That moment walking out my boss’ office summed it up. From being stone cold numb to the world for weeks commuting to the office, I suddenly experienced every emotion: exhilaration, fear, excitement, anticipation, happiness, relief and anxiety.

Business is like that.

Over the next 20 years I built several businesses, the most successful generating $1 million in profit with zero investment. I exited my last business and traveled the world for 3 years with my family. 

I now advise and invest in startups and real estate.
