50 Books That Will Change Your Business

Last week, I shared my 2019 goals, and you may notice that there are a few financial goals included in the list. Part of achieving those goals means upgrading mindsets; I want to up-level my financial, leadership and business attitudes.

One of the best ways to do this is through education, and I’m a big fan of reading (or listening) to books that will get my thoughts moving in the right direction as well as give me action steps to put into practice. Over the last few years, I’ve accumulated a huge to-be-read list of personal development, leadership and business growth books that I want to share with you.
