14 My 3 Favorite Business Books

Don't get caught plagiarizing

Everyone should have their favorite business books. A special collection of books that help or helped them get their career started on the right path and can still give them the inspiration and direction needed to go further and succeed.

Here are my three favorite business books. Maybe not what one would expect from a business advisor.  But each one holds a special place in my mind and career.  Each has something to teach the aspiring business owner or those wanting to start their own business.

The Classic Napoleon Hill Masterpiece THINK AND GROW RICH

The one book that has created more millionaires.  The one book (next to the Bible) that has helped more people turn their lives around and helped shape generations of entrepreneurs and business professionals. Why?  Because it has the rules of success as proven by the people who were profiled for its writer.

Imagine being able to interview anyone on earth that was “successful”?  Knowing your invitation to interview was almost guaranteed by your mentor?  Who would you talk to and what would you ask them??  Probably the same questions Napolean Hill asked.  And you probably would get the same answers to what made them who they are.  These are the proven rules to run your life and business by.  To define success and to achieve success in life as well as in work.


You want a modern “Get Rich and Be Successful” business book?  Well, here it is.  Crush It! is one for modern times. Step by step, CRUSH IT! is the ultimate driver′s manual for modern business.

Sears, Roebuck, U.S.A.: The Great American Catalog Store and How It Grew

This one may seem out of place.  A bankrupt retailer as a business book?  Yes.  When this book was written, Sears was the number one retailer int world and Sam Walton was a thorn in the sides of most retailers.  But it’s also a story of how Sears became that powerhouse and how they lost it all by being greedy and forgetting who pays the bills.  How a railroad telegrapher saw an opportunity when others saw failure.  What it took to create a new business model and what you cam learn from their ideas, strategies and failures.

  1. Couple of new ones in there for me that I will have to check out. Thanks for posting these up. You should read up on Way of the Junglepreneur by David Fasanya. Easily my favorite of recent years. One of the greatest sources of motivation and inspiration I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
