Self-education is incredibly powerful—it can truly pay off to read the stories and wisdom of entrepreneurs who are willing to share their knowledge. These inspiring books for women in business offer plenty of hard-won entrepreneurial advice or simply provide inspiration if you need to take action.
Women in business know that creating and sustaining a company is hard work. But even with knowing this, it can be easy to feel unprepared when faced with the very real difficulties of the job. This is even truer for budding female entrepreneurs, who might be breaking into this after a corporate career where the rules are very different.
Check out 8 Inspiring Books for Women in Business that have inspired me and tbht’s #squad of Female Entrepreneurs.
A roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, “side hustlers” (those with a day job plus a part-time small business), and anyone in between. This book won’t teach you how to build a multimillion-dollar company. It won’t teach you about systems or finance. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your “why,” eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, that’s what life and business are all about.
Discover exactly what makes you so magnificent, and you’ll gain a litany of tools and techniques to help you manifest a life bursting with magic, miracles, bliss, and adventure! Featuring fun homework exercises and cool illustrations, this book will take you from learning to fall madly in love with yourself, to loving others, to making your world a more magical place through style, self-expression, and manifestation.
The book you wish you had already read. A collection of more than 60 letters from female leaders of multimillion-dollar companies, solopreneurs, and every kind of woman in between, these stories are both a lifeline and a roadmap for women navigating our increasingly complex world.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a part-time PA with a blog, or an accountant who runs an online store in the evenings—whatever your ratio, whatever your mixture, we can all channel our own entrepreneurial spirit to live more fulfilled and financially healthy lives.
