6 Books Aspiring Entrepreneurs Should Read





Girlboss, The Lean Startup, $100 Startup, Girl Code, Playing Big & Leave your Mark

As a former entrepreneur who’s currently planning another business venture. I know firsthand that starting a business takes a lot of work, resources and dedication. These books will definitely get you pumped to start your own entrepreneurial journey. I chose these books because they promote confidence, are very useful for anyone wanting to start a business and focus on sharing insight on what worked for them.

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

“My advice to aspiring #GIRLBOSSes: As hard as it is, stop caring so much about what other people think. Find a way to hear what you want. Recognize what is your dream. And then put everything you have into that: your work, the relationships you surround yourself with, the food you put in your body. Everything you have control over in your world should feed that dream and make you feel like a #GIRLBOSS!” ― Sophia Amoruso

The Lean Startup by Eric Ries

“Just as scientific experimentation is informed by theory, startup experimentation is guided by the startup’s vision. The goal of every startup experiment is to discover how to build a sustainable business around that vision.” – Eric Ries

The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau

Ask three questions for every idea: a. How would I get paid with this idea? b. How much would I get paid from this idea? c. Is there a way I could get paid more than once?” – Chris Guillebeau

Girl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur by Cara Alwill Leyba

“When you’re scared of something, whatever it is, you have to go at it head on. You create your own destiny.” ― Cara Alwill Leyba

Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message by Tara Mohr

To get to your real inner mentor, you simply have to take time to slow down and do the visualization. Otherwise, you’ll just be working with a fantasy about your future-not that deeper voice of wisdom. ― Tara Mohr

If you can’t recite your elevator pitch at the drop of a hat, stay home. ― Aliza Licht
