Are you thinking of starting your own small business? Do you already have a small business but and want more out of it? I am passionate about helping people start their own small business and get it off the ground and going. I grew up in a home where both my parents owned a small business and currently own my own small business that I run from my home. It is important when looking to start your own business, that you invest in yourself and the possibilities available to you in the future. Reading will help fill your mind with the knowledge needed for business, as well as in life. My recommendations of the best books to read before starting a business and for current business owners as well are listed below. I learned the importance of personal development from Chalene and Bret Johnson, while employed as Vice President of their former company, Powder Blue Productions. Chalene was very big into personal development and instilled in me the knowledge that in order to have more you must become more. You can’t have more in life, whether business related or in another area of your life, without providing yourself with the knowledge it needs to succeed. What you will become in the next five years is based on who you surround yourself with and what you fill your mind with.

As an entrepreneur and online business owner, personal development is a priority in building my business and reaching my goals. What I learned as a network marketing professional is there is great value that can be gained through a book. Here are my top 10 books I recommend if you want to start a business or are already an entrepreneur. These books have changed my life and made me into the business owner, the leader and the person I am today. Believe in the possibilities of what you can have.
